    Insights from Popular Investor Heloise Greeff: Unveiling Her Winning Strategies

    Insights from Popular Investor Heloise Greeff: Unveiling Her Winning Strategies

    Ever wondered how someone achieves success in the stock market? Today on the podcast, I’m joined by Heloise Greeff, the first Female Elite Pro and one of the most popular copied investors on eToro, the world’s leading social trading platform. In this episode, she shares with us her approach to investing and the winning strategies that have made her the powerhouse investor she is today. 

    Heloise’s journey to becoming an investment superstar begins with the pocket money budgeting her mother taught her at a young age, as well as some playful exercises in investing. Growing up playing with cars with her older brother, she found herself drawn to study engineering after school and became trained as a mechatronics engineer. This led to her obtaining both an MBA and PHD in machine learning, and has made her the data-obsessed engineer she is today!

    With this impressive background, Heloise spends time not only researching and publishing novel machine learning algorithms, but consulting some of the world’s largest tech companies and exciting startups. So, how does all of this tie in with investing? 

    Heloise applies her skills in data analysis to navigate the stock market and lead her in her decision-making. The results speak for themselves, with her average return being almost 30%. For context, the S&P 500 clocks in at around 10% on average, making Heloise’s success more than a little impressive! 

    Heloise talks about the concerns she faced around her future pension, which led her to take her first steps into the world of investing. While she’s now at the top of her game, it wasn’t immediately smooth sailing, and she talks about the regrets she has on certain decisions she made in the early days. This serves as a reminder to those of us starting out that it's a learning curve for everyone, and mistakes are bound to happen. 

    We discuss the six pillar strategy Heloise has adopted, with an emphasis on the three main ones she calls ‘the basics’. While she focuses strongly on risk management, Heloise also believes in making investment choices based on what makes you ‘uniquely you’. In what areas are your strengths? What gets you excited? Finding out where your passions lie is one secret to developing a strong portfolio. 

    When it comes to successful investing, there’s no magic wand. Heloise emphasises the value of patience and discipline, and shares her tips on how to get started on what can be an exciting, long term journey in the stock market. 

    So, grab your notepad and pen and get ready to take your investment game up a notch with Heloise's incredible words of wisdom!

    How this dentist built her successful investing portfolio!

    How this dentist built her successful investing portfolio!

    Today we have the pleasure of chatting with Marina, a pioneering feminist who challenged societal norms by investing whilst running a business. She embarked on this journey at a time when it was uncommon for women to do so and in this episode, we hear all about Marina's investing history, tips and experiences that have shaped her journey towards financial freedom.

    Marina's financial story begins with her decision to study dentistry after school, a field that appealed to her as a challenge given it was largely male-dominated at the time. At a time when many women were encouraged to stay home and have babies, she had rather different goals for her life. Marina talks about her longtime desire to become self-employed and the master of her own destiny, leading her to eventually start her own business and take the leap into investing. 

    Though she admits she didn’t know a lot about making investments at the time, Marina talks about the inherent self-confidence and determination she possessed from an early age. We hear about how this drove her to make her first property purchase in her twenties, and the challenges she faced entering the share market in a time before the internet or online brokers. 

    Calling herself a conservative investor, Marina warns us not to become tied up in fear and greed, two things that we know drive the markets. Instead, she encourages us to start simple, build slowly and be in it for the long game. While investing in the share market can feel daunting for those starting out, Marina reminds us that with today’s platforms, it’s possible to start out with small amounts and is certainly never too late to begin. 

    Marina's journey is a great reminder that investing isn't merely about accumulating wealth; it's about taking control of your life and future. She talks about the comfort and financial freedom she’s gained, and how her financial independence has afforded her the life she truly desires. 

    So tune in for some amazing insights on how to level up your knowledge on investing, take charge of your finances and begin to create the life of your dreams!

    How to be mentally wealthy and healthy with Grace Sha

    How to be mentally wealthy and healthy with Grace Sha

    On today’s episode, I am joined by Dr. Grace Sha, a compelling speaker, author, and the innovative founder of the Mental Wealth Institute. Grace is a high achiever and successful dentist but years ago found herself burning out. Questions of what she was doing and where she was going overwhelmed her and a rocky relationship added to the struggle. She refused to let these challenges define her and began a journey of self-discovery. 

    When Grace reached the other side of burnout, she decided to use her experience to help others suffering like she had and wrote the book "Mental Wealth, How to Journey From Burnout to Abundance."  In this book, she details her experiences and offers practical advice on identifying burnout and achieving work-life balance.

    In this conversation, we discuss some of Grace's experiences working with patients with mental health challenges, volunteering in mental institutes, and being in a psych ward. She notes the value of conversations with psychologists and psychiatrists in understanding the reasons behind her actions and the impact they have on her life.

    We also talk about Grace’s journey investing in property. The value of investing this way was instilled in her as a child and she started as soon as she could. Now she’s not only a property investor but a property developer. Not wanting other women to be scared of entering the property market, she shares the top lessons she has learned to help you stay confident and informed. 

    Grace also shares how her perspective on wealth has changed over the years. While many people associate wealth solely with money, Grace highlights that true abundance involves being free to choose the life you live. She stresses that financial freedom is a good first step to living comfortably and fulfilling one's basic needs.

    How to build an empire: Tina Tower

    How to build an empire: Tina Tower

    In today’s episode, I’m joined by the powerhouse that is Tina Tower. She’s a business coach & strategist with a whole heap of experience building her empire and inspiring others to do the same. She’s won awards like Telstra National Young Business Woman of the Year Award and Australian Business Champion for her work. 

    We start off by talking about her first business, which she started at only 20 years old, a tutoring centre and educational toy store. Her drive and business savvy allowed her to expand the business to 35 centres with 120 staff! Eventually, she sold the company to focus on her newly discovered passion - helping other women build and scale their businesses. 

    Tina talks about her experience visiting a financial planner for the first time last year. Something she had believed was only for the super-rich but now regrets not doing much sooner. Her financial planner taught Tina about financial products and avenues for investment that she had no idea existed! 

    Tina also shares how she came to understand the value of investing, especially for women. Investing is an avenue to build your financial stability - something critical to feeling free and empowered in uncertain times. 

    I know you’ll absolutely love this episode, so sit back and enjoy!
