Original Show Notes

When it comes to building wealth and getting rich, a lot of us want a quick fix answer / that miracle thing that will make us a millionaire. But really there’s no secret formula to get rich quick and personal finance is actually pretty straightforward, but a lot of us tend to shy away from learning about how money really works and where it comes from because we find it boring or because it requires us to do that slightly scary thing of projecting 20 years ahead. So today we have a guest to help us simplify all things money and finance in a digestible way. Rob Dix is an investment fund adviser, co-presenter of one of the UK’s most popular business podcasts (The Property Podcast) which I’m a big fan of, and the author of four best-selling books about property investment. Rob’s most recent book The Price Of Money: How to Prosper in a Financial World That’s Rigged Against You, is the book he wished he had on the topic money growing up, because despite the fact humans spend their entire lives trying to earn more money very few of us understand how it works and the best way to use it.
