    Explaining ETFs: How retirees use them to invest for income & growth

    Exchange Traded Funds, or ETF's, have been the investment BUZZWORD for a while now - especially in the world of financial influencers on social media. But ETF's aren't just for Gen Z and the FinFluencers on TikTok. 

    In this episode I chat to Senior Financial Advisor David Lane to find out exactly what an ‘ETF’ is, how the use of ETFs has revolutionised investing and HOW those in their Prime Time, or already in retirement, can use ETFs to their advantage.

    "Suddenly Single at Sixty": With Jo Peck

    "Suddenly Single at Sixty": With Jo Peck

    In this episode, I speak to Jo Peck, author of the candid memoir, 'Suddenly Single at Sixty'.

    Not long after Jo's 60th birthday, her husband drops a bombshell—he’s leaving her for a (much) younger woman. Jo is shocked and heartbroken that the life she’d worked towards, has gone up in smoke.

    In this interview, Jo details the journey of personal growth which led to her rebuilding her life, making it clear that life does NOT end at 60.

Great podcast, very informative topics . Keep up the good work Bec.

Very self promoting, better suited for the already retired

This show is advertised as being for those in ‘mid life’ from 47 years, but the material seems really more targeted for those who are already retired (or just about to) and the facebook group and previous reviews certainly indicate that is the actual main audience. I don’t find much content relevant to myself while I’m still working with a family in our late 40’s/early 50’s - e.g. nothing on how to balance meeting goals and experiencing current life with saving for the future etc..
I also find it excruciatingly self promoting at times, to the point of being disrespectful to guests who are experts in their fields - Every time a guest makes a point there’s always a comment about how Bec has already covered that in her book. A recent episode with a psychologist who was VERY interesting was really hard to listen to, because she could hardly finish a single sentence without being interrupted and spoken over with self promotion.
Such a shame, because there’s a real gap in the market for this type of podcast for a mid life audience.

Too much fluff

The first couple of episodes were good. Now it is all waffle and no real education. Check out Retire Right podcast. Way better than this tripe.
