Australian Economy

2014 – Wow – what a year we have had here in the lucky country!

Imagine if what we saw in the movies really did predict the future!

Ok so you are Maverick, I can be Iceman and we can Top Gun our way down to the beach volleyball court! Possibly not, but how much of the movies are now in real life?  However, think a bit more broadly at some of the crazy stuff that we have seen in movies that are […]

Could you imagine if a simple question could make you rethink everything you’ve ever traded for the past 20 years?

Let me ask you a question – one I just got asked myself… Have you ever felt stressed, when making an investment decision? Fair enough too – remember writing that deposit cheque out when you bought a property? Maybe a small bead of sweat as you signed it. Or perhaps when you placed your first […]

Imagine earning more than $300m in your career and then BOOM – being bankrupt?

That sounds almost impossible but it’s not. It happened and it happens!!  A few years back I had the opportunity to go on a speaking tour with none other than Mike Tyson.  Talk about an interesting week – Perhaps a chat for another time!!!  So back to Iron Mike, in his career, he earned more […]
