  • Don't let crummy advice lead you to financial ruin
  • A couple weeks ago I had a conversation with a friend about his investments. He said to me, “I never get the market right… About five years ago, my financial advisor loaded most of my investments into stocks and I took a financial beating during the crash.” He continued, “Afraid of what was going to happen next, my advisor told me to pull out of most of the stocks I was invested in ... ››› more

  • The one number that always shows where a share is going
  • Investing in shares is a difficult task. With so many things out there it's hard to know what to look at to decide if a share is a good investment. Take a stroll through any trading room and you’ll hear strange things like “Fibonacci retracements” or a “pullback with a double dip means the share price will go this way”. There are literally thousands of numbers, ratios, charts and... ››› more

  • The smartest way to invest your money
  • My friend wanted to start investing his money, but he had no idea where to put it. Of course, he wanted to make the most of his money… The problem is, there are so many choices out there! Where do you even start? If you put your money under the mattress, you'll never get any returns. If you put it in the bank, you'll barely get anything back with a 4% or less return… If you put it in bond... ››› more

  • Why you should drop what you doing and invest in shares now!
  • A little while ago, I had a conversation with my friend about investments. At the time, he had just started a new job and was earning a decent living. But despite his good fortune he had no idea what to do with his money. He knew nothing about bonds, currencies, equities or even property… So I explained the difference between all the different asset classes. My favourite class is shares.... ››› more

  • For just R70 a month you can have a lawyer at your every beck and call 24 hours a day!
  • There my friend was… Alone, with no job, no stream of income and very little savings. All because of a disagreement with his boss. He did his job very well, but after one disagreement, his boss dismissed him…Unfairly! However, it felt like there wasn't much he could do about the situation. He couldn't afford to take the matter to court and pay all the bills. I mean, just having a consultation... ››› more

  • Three reasons why you're better off investing on your own
  • A while ago I was speaking to a friend of mine about investing in shares. He told me he'd placed his entire portfolio in the hands of a company that manages funds. He felt that because he wasn't a professional investor, he couldn't make money on the stock market. So, he believed, his money was better off with professional fund managers. But the thing is, investing on the stock market isn'... ››› more

  • 3 Legitimate reasons to delay saving for retirement

  • Never lose rental income again, even if your tenant is squatting!

  • Why you need to implement ‘financial triage' today!
  • During World War I, an interesting concept came about. The wounded that arrived in the medical centres were divided into different categories. Those that were likely to die, no matter what care they received... And those who had a shot of living if they received immediate care. The medical staff then focused most of their scarce resources on the ones who had the potential to survive. This ap... ››› more

  • Why you're not able to get a loan and what you can do about it!
  • Whether it's for a new home or a start of a new business, one day you'll probably need a loan. The thing is, people are struggling to get loans nowadays and I often hear the common words: “My bank won't grant me a loan to buy some property to live or invest in” or “No one will give me money to invest in a new business.” And with the advent of the unsecured lending scenario that's hit our... ››› more

  • Plan to retire? Dodge these 3 lethal mistakes...
  • We've all heard the mantra of planning for your retirement. “Just save more than you spend and you'll be fine,” or “Start saving early so that you can live well for the rest of your life.” I've seen people chant these tunes, but more often than not - there's no music at the end of the tunnel. That's because even though they might have a plan for retirement, it's fundamentally flawed. Th... ››› more

I mean a grandmaster once even said, “Chess is 99% tactics.” If you've ever played a game you'd see the wisdom behind these words. My favourite tactic in chess is something called a ‘gambit'.

  • Let's face it…We've all got debt. But the problem is, we don't know how much is enough! And nowadays the banks are offering juicy loans to pretty much anyone without even doing a proper background check. It's no wonder we're facing an unsecured lending crisis in South Africa! You see, most people don't realise, just because you qualify for a loan doesn't mean you should take one. After a... ››› more
