Do you have a saving or investing mindset? Describe your style in one sentence.

Investing mindset - I like to put my money to work.

Do you invest actively? Why or why not? If so, what is your approach in a nutshell? What level of risk are you comfortable with?

I invest weekly. I have a medium to high risk tolerance but like to scale out from high-risk investments into low-risk investments like property.

What are some of the money lessons/mistakes you have learned so far? Any milestones/successes you would like to share?

A mistake I’ve learnt is putting your eggs into one basket. I’ve done that with crypto and stocks before and it hasn't worked out. I think a healthy mix of high, medium and low risk assets is the way to go.

What is one of your short-term money goals?

This year I’d like to get another investment property and accumulate stocks and crypto.

What are you most likely to splurge on?

Expensive dinner.

Biggest money accomplishment to date?

I’ve got an investment property up in Cairns which is doing well.

Any resources that have helped you with your money - i.e., books, apps, websites, podcasts?

Rich Dad Poor Dad was a great book - after I read that I started investing. I also like Twitter for staying on the pulse with what’s going on.

Any investments outside of Blossom?

Property, crypto and stocks!

Who is your biggest money role model?

Naval Ravikant - he created AngelList and is constantly on the pulse with new technology.

What’s the best piece of financial advice you’ve been given? Or one piece of financial advice you’d give your younger self?

Start early if you can - but also not at the cost of living your life.

And what’s the ultimate money goal you’re working towards?

Owning an apartment block

Finally, tell us something you wouldn't want your in-laws to know about you..

I wouldn’t want my in-laws to know that when I say high-risk, I mean like buying penguin NFTs high risk.
