Plenty of books, podcasts and blogs focus on building wealth – and that’s great, as far as it goes. But focusing just on wealth misses the point.
I believe what most of us actually want is to have choice.
Choice in how much time we give to income-producing activities.
Choice about what those income-producing activities are.
Choice about where we live.
Choice about when we retire.
Choice about the ways we use our money to produce happiness.
In the Financial Autonomy podcast, I explore the different ways you can gain choice - from investing in stocks to becoming self-employed, starting a side hustle, or buying an investment property. I share learnings I've gained working with clients for over 20 years as a Certified Financial Planner, and interview others with interesting insights or experiences in gaining choice in life.
Why has ESG investing shone in 2020? - Episode 173
ESG - Environmental, Sustainability, and Governance. Often known as ethical investing, using these factors to help construct portfolios has been a growing trend that has delivered great results for investors this past year.
In this week's podcast, I take a look at why.
Property - Yes or No?
This week I have a bit of fun with Elephant in the Room co-host Veronica Morgan, a buyers agent and co-host of Foxtel's Location Location Location Australia.
I play devil's advocate, arguing against property as an investment, and Veronica explains why I'm wrong (or not in a few cases!).
Hope you enjoy this one.

That's what we'll be exploring in this week's episode.
CASE STUDY - Ryan Helms - Debt Slayer - Episode 168
Ryan wanted a change in his life. He wanted more flexibility, he wanted to gain choice. He thought about how he could make that happen and realised the starting point needed to be reducing his debts - they were a huge burden that locked him down and hugely limited his options.
Hear how he went about solving this challenge.
Another great IRL example of the Financial Autonomy journey, I hope you enjoy.

I really liked Paul's focus on learning from the past with examples of Tulip mania and hyper inflation from the past. Even though this podcast originated in Australia, I could really relate to the topics. Great podcast and excellent host.
