Quantitative Easing

Disclaimer: None of the following is legal advice in anyway, and legal advice should be sought from a legal Professional

It’s pretty safe to say that most people could describe 2020 in a single word. In many ways 2021 might not be all that different. Uncertainty, global tensions between economic superpowers and the odd COVID-19 variant breakout here and there are keeping us well and truly on our toes … inflation is coming … the lunatics are running the asylums …

Why the Rich Just Get Richer

Disclaimer: None of the following is legal advice in anyway, and legal advice should be sought from a legal professional.

This one is a bit harder to start. Despite what I write about and the intention to educate [you] the reader about value of financial education and literacy, it has to be honestly said that what I promote comes from sources before me. Just like the skillset I promote in teaching for profit. What I know – I learnt from someone else.

A Letter to Parents

Dear Mum and Dad …

This letter is to all parents, and to the children too, because we’re all … someone’s kids.

This one is a hard one to write. Why? Because I don’t have kids. And that makes it hard for me to relate to parents. I tip my cap to you all, because I like time to myself. I’m pretty self centered too. Honestly I don’t really see myself as paternal material. But anyway.
