The Barefoot Investor has been updated to cover some of the 2017 changes to the tax law.
This is the only money guide you’ll ever need.
That’s a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves. So what makes this one different?
Well, you won’t be overwhelmed with a bunch of ‘tips’ … or a strict budget (that you won’t follow).
You’ll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here, and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.
This book will show you how to create an entire financial plan that is so simple you can sketch it on the back of a serviette … and you’ll be able to manage your money in 10 minutes a week.
You’ll also get the skinny on:
Saving up a six-figure house deposit in 20 months
Doubling your income using the ‘Trapeze Strategy’
Saving $78,173 on your mortgage and wiping out 7 years of payments
Finding a financial advisor who won’t rip you off
Handing your kids (or grandkids) a $140,000 cheque on their 21st birthday
Why you don’t need $1 million to retire … with the ‘Donald Bradman Retirement Strategy’.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not.
This book is full of stories from everyday Aussies — single people, young families, empty nesters, retirees — who have applied the simple steps in this book and achieved amazing, life-changing results.
And you’re next.
Scott Pape is the Barefoot Investor — a fiercely independent investment advisor who, for over a decade, has reached millions of Australians through his newspaper columns, and on TV and radio.
In 2014 he and his family lost everything in a bushfire... but what they did next — that's the real story.
