Staying The Course

Staying The Course

2019-12-1100:29:20

What a season this has been! We’ve covered a lot of ground, from setting goals, to establishing daily actions. From robust reviews to using leverage. We’ve covered more ground on behavioural finance and last week we had the inimitable Escape Artist offering his take on the long journey to FI. Today I want to summarise things really, with an emphasis on staying the course
Today I’m speaking, for the second time, to Barney Whiter, AKA The Escape Artist. Barney is a leading voice in the FIRE movement in the UK, and I wanted to get his take on working towards Financial Independence, the challenges along the way and the practicalities of it all.
Rolling with the punches

In the long journey towards financial independence, life sometimes happens. When it does, you’re going to need to adjust, deal with the challenges and refocus. Today I want to help you do just that.
The conversations we have with ourselves around money are vital to our successful wealth-building. Today I’m bringing back repeat guest Neil Bage to go into this vital area of our financial journey.
How we behave around our money has far greater impact on our wealth-building than our investment decisions, or level of diversification and whether or not we use leverage. Today I welcome back my good friend Neil Bage, founder of Be-IQ (a behavioural insights company), to talk us through how we cope with the various influences over our behaviour.
Next-Level Diversification

Next-Level Diversification

2019-11-0600:29:471

We all know that diversification is a good thing when it comes to investing and wealth-building, but is there a limit to how useful it can be? Can you be TOO diversified? Today I’m talking about next-level diversification.
Mastering Leverage

Mastering Leverage

2019-10-3000:31:383

Experienced investors need to understand leverage in all its forms, and today we’re going to be talking about what it means to apply leverage to your own wealth-building.
We’ve covered a ton of ground in the season so far, and we’re only now approaching the half-way point. We’ve spent time looking at goals and actions and reviews, but the journey to financial independence is a long one, and just like on a long drive when you come to an open road, it feels good to put your foot down, it feels good to accelerate your financial plans too.
Robust Reviews

Robust Reviews

2019-10-1600:24:40

Over the past few weeks we’ve looked at setting goals and building plans to achieve those goals. But working towards financial independence can take a while, and you need to know whether or not you’re on track as you go along. And you do that by having a robust review process in place.
The One-Page Financial Plan

The One-Page Financial Plan

2019-10-0900:26:051

Over the past few weeks, we’ve looked how to set some goals and how to move from goals to actions. Today I’d like to help you distil all that down so that you end up with a one-page financial plan.
From Goals To Actions Pt 2

From Goals To Actions Pt 2

2019-10-0200:26:081

Last week we considered our goals and our actions from a 40,000 foot perspective and talked about things you can do from that vantage point. Today we need to drop down to the runway level, and get a little bit more granular…
In the past couple of weeks we have looked at financial planning and introduced the timeline paradigm. Last week we looked at how to arrive at and work back from some goals to get a sense of what you need to do now to move towards those goals. Today, we need to move from goals to actions.
Setting Financial Goals

Setting Financial Goals

2019-09-1800:22:382

Last week we covered the basic premise of financial planning, introducing the concept of the timeline of your life. Today I want to build on that, and use that model to help us think about some goals.
What IS Financial Planning?

What IS Financial Planning?

This season of the MeaningfulMoney podcast is called Planning with Purpose and is designed for those well-established on their journey towards financial independence. But if we’re talking about planning, then we’d better define what we mean by that…
Woohoo! It’s another new season here on MeaningfulMoney after a summer of Inbetweenisodes. I hope you have enjoyed the conversations I’ve had over the past few weeks. I’ve had loads of great feedback, so it seems like you have. It’s been a great few weeks, but I’m excited to get cracking on what is easily going to be the best season ever of MeaningfulMoney, called Planning with Purpose.
Right, time to tie things off at the end of Season 14. It’s the now traditional Season-ending Q&A! You’ve been sending in your questions throughout the season and I’ve done my best to curate the key questions that have arisen and this week I’ll be attempting to answer them.
I’m rounding off this season (except for the Q&A next week) by summarising what I think New Accumulators need to DO to crack on with their wealth-building. I think it’s also important to know what you DON’T need to do…
We’re on the home straight on this New Accumulators season now, and we dealt last week with the massive subject of our behaviour around our money. Today I have something pretty special for you, or rather, someone pretty special…
Of all the influencing factors that will determine the success or otherwise of your wealth-building, your own behaviour is the biggest deal of all. As New Accumulators, we have some lessons to learn…
As New Accumulators, we need to understand that when we invest, we are converting our cash into assets which we hope will increase in value over time, so we can beat inflation and meet our financial goals. So we need to spend some time today discussing the main assets that we can buy as investors so that we know what we’re getting into…
