It’s estimated that over 250,000 Australians are part of the gig economy, which includes side hustlers with 9 to 5’s and those working full time in the gig economy. So chances are many of our listeners have tried their hand at a side hustle or freelance work arrangements at some point. Although gig economy work can provide greater flexibility and choices in your day to day work, it can be very unpredictable and uncertain, on both your time and money, which can lead to financial stress. In today’s episode of The Australian Finance Podcast, we’re going to be taking a deep dive into the gig economy, which covers everything from ride sharing services like Uber to providing specific services for a fee, like taking on Airtasker jobs to assemble Ikea bookshelves or helping a small baking business with their social media. Our guest today is, Michelle Grace Hunder, who is a live music photographer based in Melbourne, tours with Ruel, has her own photography courses, has published a book and has made a film, “her sound, her story”.

As an investor, a red flag is a warning sign to you that there’s something going on with the company that warrants further investigation. We don’t usually get to see the inner workings of the company, so have to make educated decisions based on the external information available to us. In this episode, Kate & Owen put forward 10 different red flags that may stand out to you as investors, and some notable ASX case studies. Our red flag might be your green light, so in today’s episode we’re going to explore some of the things that would make us stop and pause as investors. You might still decide to invest in a company after looking into one of these red flags we highlight today, but you’ll be a lot more informed when you do, and you might even start to see some patterns emerge across different companies.

I interrupt our regular programming for a special update. Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been working on behind the scenes at Rask. Proper financial education is nearly impossible in Australia for the masses. We wanted to address that. Every day we check our total enrolments as a sign of hope, pride and achievement. Recently, we crossed 16,000 students enrolled in Rask courses. A massive achievement for us at Rask. That’s 16,000 families who have been positively impacted by our sensible, optimistic, focused strategies to help them out of debt and into long-term investing. Many of the courses on Rask are free. And we’ve just launched our biggest cluster of courses called Rask Roadtrip. It’s a series of 6 online short courses, covering investing for the first time, saving on tax, repaying debt, the psychology of feeling more positive about money, and a crash course anyone can use to understand and sort out their Super. These are all completely free. I say again - the Rask Roadtrip is entirely free. They are in addition to heaps of other free resources. If you’re worried about your mortgage or want to buy a property, take our debt course and property 101 course. Or if you want to invest for the first time but don’t know how we teamed up with Equity Mates for the official get started investing course. If you want to grow your wealth and do it in an informed way, our ETF investing course is the most popular course we have, teaching you the essentials of ETF investing. I think it’s the most popular ETF course in Australia. If you’re worried about interest rates on your car loan, have credit cards up eyeballs, loans to family or friends or maybe even Buy Now, Pay Later from Afterpay or Zip — take our debt course. It’s part of Rask Roadtrip. We’ll teach you the two easiest ways to pay down debt and get free help from an expert. The big reason I want to celebrate these milestones is that the world of long term investing is actually a very positive place, filled with opportunity and value creation. And learning to avoid the doomsayers and toxic armchair experts on tv or on social media is hard. And right now, more than I’ve seen in the past 10 years, things are scary for a lot of our family and friends. Job security, higher debt repayments and falling property and share prices are scary. ANZ and Finder research shows the number one stresser is a mortgage repayment, followed by groceries. I don’t think I’ve eaten an iceberg lettuce in 2022. Despite all the doom and gloom, you should know that you’re not alone. Our podcasts, memberships, free courses and online resources are here to support what is usually a solo journey. I get to speak to nearly 100,000 investors through these podcasts. But I also speak with dozens of Australia’s biggest fund managers, professional sporting teams, parents, private investors and folks pursuing FIRE. Everyone I talk to recognises the need for high quality education. Even if you don’t need to take a course on personal finance, chances are a friend, colleague or family member does. Please share any of our resources with your family and friends, knowing that it’s genuine and we’re not going to lead your loved one down the garden path. If you want to support us in other ways, review and subscribe to the podcast. Or talk to us about getting our courses and workshops into your company, social events or online. In the past year I’ve done talks for sporting teams, University clubs, Google Australia, major telcos & more. Our beginner level courses are free to not for profit groups and sporting clubs.
Welcome back to another listener Q&A episode, where Kate Campbell and Owen Rask crack open the mailbox to answer your money and investing questions.

📚 Ready for some personal finance and investing book recommendations? After sharing a pile of books on my shelf at the moment, we were reminded of the impact a personal finance and investing book can have on someone’s financial future.

Is scrolling through Netflix, Uber Eats and TikTok killing our ability to focus? This year we’ve become really interested in the idea of using our time better, and ways to live our lives with more intention. There is so much more to our lives than picking the perfect ETF or brokerage account, so it’s important that we take the time to zoom out and look at the bigger picture of how we’re designing the lives we want to live, and investing both our time and money better. Today’s guest, Dr Amantha Imber, is an organisational psychologist and behavioural scientist, and has just released her book Time Wise, which is a guide designed to help dominate your day and level up your life, using the secrets and habits from the world’s most successful people. She’s also host of the popular podcast How I Work, where she interviews some of the world’s most successful people about their habits, rituals and strategies for optimising their day. In today’s episode we discuss ways to invest both your time and money better, whether money can buy happiness and how to make better decisions when spending money. Ready-made ETF portfolios?

In today’s episode we’re going to unpack ASX market announcements. Have you ever noticed a section in your brokerage account, the ASX website or on a specific company’s website called market announcements? An ASX announcement from a company is how they keep you updated with important news like financial results, a new CEO or a major acquisition. But there can be a lot of announcements (more than one person can read in a day)…so what should you keep an eye out for as an investor? That’s what Kate & Owen take a look at in today’s episode.

Thanks for the consolidated lessons/tips....but I have to say Phillip just spend most of the time talking about his podcasts and his groups....wasn't much content here, which is disappointing because I was wanting to find a nice intro episode for a non investor friend. thanks for the podcast overall, but more content and less brand/name dropping.

You lost me when your guest said he likes his podcast guests to simplify information as if they're "talking to their mother". Yawn, if you're going to have dinosaur gendered speech like this, I'm just going to listen to 'She's on the Money'
