    Quick Wins with Financial Behaviour

    Quick Wins with Financial Behaviour

Today we’re going to give you some quick wins to help yourselves make good decisions with your money.

    Quick Wins with Costs and Tax

    Quick Wins with Costs and Tax

    Every penny paid in costs is a penny which isn't growing for your future, so it stands to reason that we need to minimise the costs we pay. And tax is one of the biggest costs we can incur.

    Quick Wins with Life Insurance

    Quick Wins with Life Insurance

    It's no exaggeration to say that having a decent protection programme in place is FOUNDATIONAL to everything else we do with our money. It truly is the thing that everything else is built upon. If it's a shaky foundation, then all our plans might come to nothing. That said, insurance is something that most people need, but no-one really wants to pay for, so we need to get the balance right, making sure that we have enough insurance, but don't overdo it.

    Quick Wins with your Savings Rate

    Quick Wins with your Savings Rate

    Your savings rate isn't the interest rate you're getting on savings in your bank, despite how it sounds. Rather, it is the amount of your income that you're saving each month or each week, and it's one of the most powerful levers in your control, when it comes to building wealth.

    It's Not About The Money, with Catherine Morgan

    It's Not About The Money, with Catherine Morgan

    I'm throwing in a little inbetweenisode here in the middle of Season 21 because a good friend of mine Catherine Morgan is releasing her new book this week. The book is called It's Not About The Money - Three Steps To Become A Wealthy Woman. While that might seem to alienate a reasonable proportion of this audience, it ought not to as there's meat in the book for anyone, regardless of sex.

Absolutely brilliant! You will be in a better position once you’ve listen to this!

I discovered Pete’s Meaningful Money Pod and then the community just over a year ago. What a difference it has made. From getting the basics right of creating a will, getting insurance in place, to making my financial decisions intentional. I’d dabbled before but after listening to countless of Pete’s pods, I now have a plan and not gambling with my future! Pete’s style is easy to listen to, really relatable and I’m passing this Pod onto anyone that will listen to me. Keep up the great work and it’s a must-listen for anyone in any position. In the personal finance world, Pete is as close to a genius as it gets!!!

Practical, simple and actionable

If, like me, you are beginning to be intentional with your finances, then there’s no better place to start than here.

Every episode contains something new - usually many somethings new - that I had previously not heard of or understood. All the advice is delivered as if you’re having a sensible and informative chat at your local.

From a personal perspective, the recent episode on Life Insurance made me run to double-check my existing policy. I’m an ex-smoker, but still occasionally use nicotine lozenges when stressed out - and realised that this meant my policy might be invalid. Sure enough, it was confirmed by my current insurer that I had been paying for 7 years for nothing. I’ve now swapped to an appropriate policy, using the tips from the podcast. Hopefully my family won’t need it, but at least it’s actually valid now!

Great work. Thanks, guys!

Brilliantly accessible, absolute must for anyone in the UK looking to win with their money.

Hi Pete, I’m ashamed to say that I only found your podcast recently, though this does mean I have at least a year’s worth of commutes looked after with the back catalogue!

I’m definitely a finance enthusiast but until now have followed the board steps taught by a predominantly American set of authors. You’ve definitely taught me a lot, the nuances around just how good auto-enrolment can be even for those without enhanced plans was new to me, and the importance of paying yourself first before working through your budget.

To have such great quality podcasts put out, and so regularly, by a U.K. based author is fantastic and I’d recommend them to anyone. And for anyone international out there, you’d struggle to find a better starting point regardless! Tom
