Supercharge your savings

29 Jan Supercharge your savings over the short term

Who’s up for saving an extra $5K over the next six months? Maybe your credit card’s copped a bit of a caning over the past two months. Maybe you’re saving up to get out of Melbourne for a few weeks come winter and head somewhere warmer. Maybe you’d just like a little extra up your sleeve for a rainy day. Sound good? You in? I have a...

Cost of fitness

22 Jan The cost of keeping fit and staying healthy

    I have a serious case of the guilts at the moment. Christmas was a big one – I reckon I ate three times my own body weight. So I’m on an exercise-filled mission at the moment. I’m desperate to get some fitness back.   Before I beat myself up too much, though, I’m not alone. There’s a reason why gym memberships spike in the first couple...

Exercis New Years Resolution Goals

14 Jan New Year’s resolutions – why less is more

I have a question for you, and be honest. Over the past five years, how many times have you made a New Year’s resolution and actually seen it through? It’s hard, I know. We always start the new year with the best of intentions. We make resolutions while we’ve got our feet up over the Christmas break, but then struggle to stick to our goals...

Eating Healthy

08 Jan Why healthy eating trumps convenience

Life gets busy, right? So much so, good diet and healthy eating habits often quickly go out the window. Throw two kids, a busy family life and business into the equation and it gets even harder. Consistently eating well’s a precarious balancing act. I’ll be the first to put my hand up to say that I overdid it over Christmas. Too many rich foods, the...

The risk of not diversifying

07 Nov New to investing? Get smart and diversify

Life’s full of risks. That’s a given. Some you can mitigate against, some you can’t.   When it comes to investing, one of the critical ways of minimising risk is diversification. It can save you a lot of stress, particularly if you’re prone to money worries keeping you awake at night. In fact, I’d argue that a diversified portfolio should play a vital role within any long-term...

Unhappy with Investment Fees

07 Nov Why fees can seriously cramp your investment style

You rarely get a free ride in life. Same goes for investments – every one you make will have some kind of fee attached.   Left to run amok, fees can seriously suck the life out of your investment portfolio. I’ve lost count of the number of people I’ve met with active portfolios who’re losing significant amounts of cash at the hands of rampant fees. They really...

Investing Compound Interest

07 Nov The power of compounding returns

This week, I want to talk you through compounding interest, often referred to as ‘compound earnings’. Albert Einstein called it one of the ‘greatest mathematical discoveries of all time’. Many in the financial world refer to it as ‘a force of nature’ – a secret sauce, if you will. Whichever way you look at it, compounding returns have played a critical role in helping the rich...

The beginner's guide to the sharemarket Orange Wealth

07 Nov The beginner’s guide to the sharemarket

For a novice, the sharemarket can be like landing in Shanghai and not being able to speak Mandarin. As with any language, though, start learning the foundations, and all of a sudden things start to fall into place.   Ultimately, the sharemarket can be as complex as you want to make it. It really depends on what your financial goals are and whether you want to learn...

Get the jump on Christmas savings Orange Wealth

23 Oct Get the jump on Christmas savings

Wow, this year’s really flown for me. Maybe it’s the perpetual balancing act that is having a young family and running a business, but 2018 really feels like it’s had its foot firmly planted on the accelerator. It’s the same thing every year. We emerge out of winter into spring, desperate for some warmer weather to kick in, but, once we hit October, those last...

save money at the airport orange wealth

01 Aug Escaping winter? How to save money at the airport

For me, fleeing Melbourne’s bitter winters and getting some much-needed respite from sub-15°C daily temperatures is an absolute necessity. Maybe I’m just getting old, but I’m really feeling it this year. In my defence, the daily temperature literally just topped 9.8°C as I’m writing this. If you can avoid travelling during peak periods like school holidays, there are some great flight deals floating around at...
