    190. Part 1: Steve Baxter on seeing what others don't

    190. Part 1: Steve Baxter on seeing what others don't

    What separates the best entrepreneurs from the rest? Top investor, founder and ‘Shark’ Steve Baxter knows better than anyone.
    Steve is one of Australia’s most successful tech entrepreneurs who gives back as an investor and mentor, while also starring on Channel 10’s very popular Shark Tank Australia.
    In this episode we’ll look at what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur alongside Steve’s own journey, while next episode we delve into what makes a successful start up business and how you go about evaluating and investing in them.
    Steve is the living epitome of the old saying that ‘Today I’ll invest in what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t!’
    In 1994, at the age of just 23, Steve put his life savings of $11,000 on the line to launch his first startup, the pioneering internet service provider SE Net, from the spare room of his Adelaide home, as you’ll hear in detail during our chat.
    And it was around that time that I had the pleasure of first meeting Steve, as his business partner was a mutual and longtime friend of mine Chris Foote.
    Growing rapidly to service more than 35,000 customers, SE Net was eventually sold and acquired by Ozemail under the stewardship of its Founding Director and past Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull.
    In 2001, Steve then teamed with a schoolmate to launch his second startup, PIPE Networks, a provider of wholesale telecom infrastructure that was listed on the ASX in 2005.
    Eight years later they sold it to the TPG Group for the princely sum of just $373 million – a truly hard fought and lifechanging moment.
    Steve then spent a year working with Google in California in 2008, leading a project to deliver high-speed telecommunications systems across North America.
    Since 2010 he has become an early stage investor in startups through his investment company, Transition Level Investments. This led to the founding of Brisbane tech startup hub River City Labs and the creation of Startup Catalyst and RiverPitch programs, and he’s been championing Australian startups and entrepreneurs ever since. 
    He’s also been on the listed boards of Vocus Telecoms, Indoor Skydive Australia Group and Other Levels as well as being on the board of Commercialisation Australia.
    Steve’s also been heavily involved in the early days of founding numerous industry groups and forums such as the South Australian Internet Association, South Australian Internet Exchange, Australian Domain Name Authority, and more.
    Steve now runs TEN13, an investment syndicate platform for sophisticated investors to invest alongside him and the experienced Transition Level Investments team, as unlike many venture capitalists, Steve puts his own cash on the dash to the tune of an average of 15% to 20% of every seed deal.
    TEN13 understands that to get great returns you need to invest in global companies, so they’ve built a global portfolio across five continents with a value of over $2 billion in its first 18 months.
    So If you’re a sophisticated investor looking to diversify your portfolio and invest in top calibre technology companies, reach out to Steve and his high calibre TEN13 investment team who undertake exhaustive due diligence before they invest.

    189. Barry Richardson on investing in trust

    189. Barry Richardson on investing in trust

    Who do you trust, and who can you trust? In these troubled and challenging times, building trust is key to achieving sustainable success.
    And one of the best living examples of someone who exemplifies all of the rare qualities of trust and supportive leadership in a genuine, humble way is our guest Barry Richardson.
    Barry is one of those people that was brought up to believe that your word is your deed and that everything is signed and sealed by simply looking someone squarely in the eye and giving them a handshake.
    If Barry says he’s going to do something he does it, and he stays true to his principles and will walk away if someone tries to compromise them. He’s consistently true to himself and true to all of those around him.
    Barry, also known as ‘Bones’, is one of those rare wise men that speaks his truth quietly and humbly, but when he talks, you just stop and listen.
    He’s the embodiment of that old saying ‘that a wise man only talks when he has something to say, but a fool talks because he has to say something.’
    I’ve been a massive fan of Barry’s since the 1960s during his glory days as a premiership VFL footballer for my team the mighty Richmond Tigers, and he went on to become the coach and then the club president - and there are very very few who have achieved this level of total accomplishment.
    So to set the scene so that you can appreciate the full spectrum of Barry Richardson’s incredible achievements, here’s a brief snapshot. 
    As an elite footballer he kicked 134 goals and played 125 games over nine seasons from 1965 to 1974 and won three premierships during the Richmond Tigers’ golden age (in 1967,69 & 74) when he played in Richmond’s first drought breaking and winning premiership for over 24 years.
    This was an amazing feat during the time when the game was yet to become professional and players were part time, holding down full time jobs and working careers in order to pay their way.
    Bones played during the rough and tough days of mud, blood and beer and was one of ‘Hafey’s Heroes’ when he was coached by the club’s team of the century coach, Tommy Hafey, who was famous for always saying ‘I’m sensational but getting better!’ 
    These were the days when the coach led by example and Tommy was still doing a thousand sit ups a day and 200 pushups when he was well into his 70s, and this daily discipline has rubbed off on Barry who still keeps himself fit at a similar age.
    Two years after retiring from playing, Bones won the difficult job of coach of the Richmond Tigers, which was a big ask, taking over from the legendary Tommy Hafey and being in charge of many of his former team mates at just 30 years of age.
    Many commended Barry for his inclusive, trusting approach that was way ahead of the time. This was a cut throat era in the game, when the instant pressure to perform from the ferocious and impatient Tiger Army, created a mistrusting environment where the Tigers administration would constantly eat their young by only offering coaches one year contracts and then regularly sacking them.
    So Barry lasted two seasons as coach, which was more than most during this revolving door period. This was an environment where the pressure to perform created an endemic culture of mistrust
    that led to Richmond’s lost years, going without a premiership for another 34 years.
    But on the strength of his always trustworthy and dependable approach, Barry was far from done in the corridors of football, joining the Melbourne Demons in 1981 as Chairman of Selectors, before returning to Richmond in the haloed position of Club President for a year. He resigned on principle, when his handshake deal with the then coach was overturned by the administration. 
    His trustworthy, reliable approach was further rewarded when he then joined the West Coast Eagles, before spending time at Melbourne, Carlton and Geelong.
    And Barry’s high achievements weren’t restricted to football. Professi

    188. Andrew Baxter on investing in education

    188. Andrew Baxter on investing in education

    When it comes to investment, there’s never been a more important time to get educated and build a solid set of investment principles.
    For me (Bushy), some of these timeless investment principles and lessons learned are:
    It’s all about time
    Don’t waste your time and money trying to outperform the market
    Investments behave randomly in the short term
    Avoid the traps and costs of overly actively trading
    Don’t chase returns
    Diversify across uncorrelated assets
    Be very wary of investment market forecasts and projections
    And the best way to inculcate these and other investment lessons is to continuously improve your investment education.
    This is a fundamental belief of our guest Andrew Baxter.
    Andrew is the founder and CEO of Australian Investment Education. His career started at the hub of global investment markets, the City Of London. There, he worked for some of the largest institutions building up a broad based expertise in trading and investing across global markets. Since his move to Australia in 1999, he has been on a mission to educate and empower everyday investors on how to build better returns, manage risk and ultimately enjoy a richer life. 
    He has been invited to speak around the world alongside some of the biggest names in the personal development and wealth space. In Andrew’s own words, his flagship, Australian Investment Education, brings together the complexities of financial markets and distills them down into simple, bite sized chunks that just about anyone can follow. 
    In addition to training and education, Andrew Baxter is the owner and director of a number of companies ranging across areas such as Advisory, Financial Technology, Brokerage, Financial Planning and Accounting.
    You can find out more Andrew and Australian Investment Education on his Money and Investing podcast or at www.australianinvestmenteducation.com.au.
    Like all things investment, you’ll need to do your own detailed due diligence before deciding to proceed with Australian Investment Education.
    And I also stress that Australian Investment Education’s ‘cash flow on demand’ options trading strategy is not for the beginner or the uninitiated – there are inherent, unseen risks in options trading if you don’t know what you are doing, so ensure that you fully educate yourself and historically backtest your trading system in detail before you put your hard cash on the dash – again it’s all about investing in your education first before investing in assets.  
    Now in our lively and entertaining chat today, Andrew talks about:
    Away and towards values
    The danger of assuming your work success translates into investing success 
    His cash flow on demand options income strategy
    The importance of intention, motivation and self reflection on your investing success
    The need to really know yourself and where you want to get to
    The importance of developing your process in line with your skills evolution
    Indices versus stock picking – Exchange Traded Funds – passive investment, diversification 
    His view on the risks of the unregulated maverick crypto market and the future potential of blockchain technology 
    And much much more!
