powering smart financial decisions

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest,” said Benjamin Franklin, whose face appears on America’s $100 bill.

That’s why subscribing to podcasts could help you acquire the knowledge you need to take control of your finances and grow your wealth.

The podcasts below will teach you valuable lessons about budgeting, investing, property, shares, superannuation, tax and other fun stuff.

Listen while you’re commuting to work, listen while you’re at the gym, listen while you’re doing the vacuuming. Because it’s all about the Benjamins.
