Do you want to learn more about investing? How to improve decision making and time management from business leaders around the world?
Hi, I'm Ted Richards and in this podcast I speak with experts from around the world to explore and learn ways we can make smarter decisions when it comes to investing money and time. I love talking to talented investors, athletes and professors about how they succeeded and what we can learn from them to improve our own performance. My former guests include Scott Galloway, Morgan Housel, Harvard/Wharton Professors, Fund Managers and former professional athletes.

I'm a former Premiership player over a 16 year AFL career with a Bachelor of Commerce and Masters of Applied Finance. I'm Head of Distribution at Six Park, an Australian investment service, and importantly I have a passion for investing.

The Richards Report podcast has been a finalist at the Australian Podcast Awards in the category of Best Business Podcast.

Keep doing things Teddy

Only a couple of episodes through, however love the episodes of former sporting athletes becoming involved in business. Ie. Andy Welsh, Glenn Lovett.

Very simple and doesn’t muck around with too much biography of their sporting life, gets straight to the point and their business life.

Keep the former athletes coming.

Ted Richards You Star!

As a lifelong Swans fan, I thought when Leo Barry took that famous mark in the dying seconds of the 2005 Grand Final that no one could ever replace him as my favourite fullback.
Then I discovered this Podcast. Great insight that is easy to understand with guests that are world class.
Keep up the good work Ted.
