Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

Jan 27, 2017

We often hear about strategies to get rich quick and treat these, quite rightly, with suspicion and distrust.

Instead of focusing on dubious get rich quick schemes, in this episode of Informed Choice Radio I’m sharing some ways to get poor quick.

The goal of sharing these lessons is to help you identify behaviour that will result in you losing money.

Unlike making money where guarantees are few and far between, I can absolutely guarantee you that the ten lessons shared in this episode of the podcast will result in you losing money.
