    Inspiring Mini Documentary

    I like the idea of being better off spending $300 on fuel than $300 on bike bits, to make you a better rider

    I always start with the principal of only invest in things you understand. I don’t understand bitcoin Whilst on the negative team, this article from India gives some perspective to reflect on https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/wealth/invest/7-reasons-why-you-should-not-invest-in-bitcoins-cryptocurrencies/articleshow/60891341.cms

  12. Hey Fro. I need some boots and knee protection. What deal did you end up negotiating with MCA? And is there someone I should ask to talk to? Cheers

    There is all sorts of advice out there. My advice is get some good advice that is bespoke for your individual circumstances.

    Pete. A can of worms there. You get into the realm of individual financial capacity so there is no answer which is either A or B. If you had stacks of cash and access to debt, for example, you would do both. Also needs to make sure asset portfolios are balanced and not excessively weighted to say, just property

    Whilst it may seem that the purpose of this thread is to taunt every 6 months or so, its purpose is that it’s useful to go back over the 2.5 years and see what people say and if their prophecies come true. Go and review the Sun (or Herald) from 1963, or any other year, and the theme of overinflated property prices is constant. It’s a staple which gets repeated over and over because it appeals to the average punter and sells papers. You still need to buy smart and stay away from oversupplied markets....but the whole property market is not contaminated by inner city apartments, for example. In all honesty though, how many people do you know that have lost money buying/selling property over your lifetime? Anecdotally it does happen - but the vast majority make money. The reality is that it’s not that risky as a class of asset to invest in, despite what you read in the papers or on this thread. [emoji106]
