    On this week's episode the two Pauls are joined by former rugby player Dev Toner. Dev talks about his retirement from rugby, seriously pivoting his career to qualifying as a financial advisor and now working with Paul Merriman as Head of Partnerships. He also talked about how he came to the decision not to pursue a coaching role and to leave the game altogether. Dev shares the sort of person he was in school, how his finally leaving rugby came about and how ready he was to finish up by then and being excited by the next chapter. He and Paul talk about the importance of structure when building a business and the impact Dev has had on his business. They all discuss retirement in the traditional sense, the ways it has changed and how some professions lend themselves to carrying on well beyond that time.  Dev also shares memories of his last game, what he misses about the game and what he doesn’t and reveals his best and worst spends!

Bored with the trains now ,

Great advice

Really excellent podcast with such common sense and understandable advice. Love the fact that you hear about all the different schemes available to people from government etc that go under the radar most of the time cause banks don’t tell anyone about them.
Also love how blunt and honest Paul is about personal responsibility in financial matters. It’s your money so look after it rather than just giving up and blaming all and sundry for your woes!
Looking forward to season 2.
