  • Invest R1,200 a year and collect a 25% bonus for your children's education
  • Invest R1,200 a year and collect a 25% bonus for your children's education
    Earlier this week I spoke to a new parent who only earns R8,000 a month. With a three month old baby, she was concerned that she wouldn't have enough money for her child's education when the time came to send the child to school. She could only afford to save R1,200 a year for her child's education and put her first lump sum savings into a 32 day savings account that gave her a measly 5% interest rate. But her money was not growing as fast as it should in that 32 day savings account. I couldn't believe that she didn't know about one investment fund, managed by government that pays you a 25% bonus for saving towards your child's education...... ››› Read more

  • Three reasons you should attend shareholder meetings
    If you think every company shareholder meeting involves as much pomp and ceremony as Berkshire Hathaway, think again. These meetings are long, they could be boring but they are essential for shareholders. These meetings are not just reserved for the executive team or those investors with hundreds and thousands of shares in the company. If you're invested, you have a right to go... But first, you need to know what meetings to attend.... ››› Read more

  • Property in South Africa is too big a risk to invest…
    Last week a property investors told me that: “Property in SA is too big a risk. New laws coming out soon will limit property ownership to two properties and there will be no foreign ownership allowed.” Is this true? Should you up and sell your property right now, or is there hope left for the South African property sector?... ››› Read more

  • If you're failing at a career you hate, take a chance and succeed at what you love
  • If you're failing at a career you hate, take a chance and succeed at what you love
    I know what it feels like to be stuck behind a desk, earning a pittance and despising your existence. But I changed the way I live my life. I took a calculated risk that paid off. Today, I am writing this letter to you from my home office, while watching my kids through my study window as they play outside. I want you to be able to experience this level of freedom too. Spending more time working on the things you love with the people you love, earning money for your personal gain and not having to answer to anyone but yourself. There are options for you to make money, good money, in a world where most people are conditioned to have a steady job. I'm not going to tell you how easy it is because it's not. I'm not going to tell you that you won't make mistakes because you ultimately will. But, if you're unhappy with the life you're living now, why wouldn't you want to change it? What do you have to lose? To do this successfully, you need to make sure that you are motivated, focused and ready for the exciting journey ahead. When I wrote my first book, The Home Business Tycoon, I did it with one goal in mind to show you that there's life after the rat race. This was the first time I revealed my six pillars to building personal wealth. Today, I want to share those six pillars with you and remind you, that you don't have to be a slave to the rat race. You can live a richer, more fulfilled life on your own terms.... ››› Read more

  • One of the most attractive investment options for low-risk investors right now
  • One of the most attractive investment options for low-risk investors right now
    The other day, while making my morning coffee, a work colleague asked me about an opportunity to earn an 11.5% return on a fixed-term bond investment. And she wasn't talking about RSA Government Retail Bonds. She was talking about investing in a Participation Bond Fund, specifically the FedGroup Participation Bond Fund. When you invest in a Participation Bond Fund, money is pooled with other investors. The fund loans this money to buyers of commercial, industrial and retail property. These loans are secured by a first mortgage bond over the properties. On a monthly basis the property owners pay interest on their loans and this interest is paid by the fund to investors. This has been around for 25 years and is regulated under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act. So it's governed by strict Financial Service Board (FSB) rules. Naturally, as any first time investor would do, my colleague asked me if this investment was a good idea and more importantly, if it was safe for her. Let me explain what I found and why this opportunity could be a great income investment for you…... ››› Read more
