Spend less, earn more

  • Three buckets of spending: 1. Essential fixed costs (mortgage, school fees, car payment) 2. Essential expenses – variable (groceries, electricity, gas) 3. Discretionary – extras and luxuries
  • 2 ways to earn more money – upskill or educate yourself so you can earn more in your job OR invest money and earn returns.

Asset classes to exercise analogy:

  • Cash = walking
  • Fixed income/Bonds = Slow jog
  • Property = Running
  • Australian shares = Spin class
  • Global shares = High intensity training

As you move further up the return spectrum, the risk increases.
