Karl Moreton: Property Investors Beware!

Karl Moreton: Property Investors Beware!

 

 

 

Well you may not be smoking crack or selling babies on ebay, but you’re a property investor, and very quickly no one’s on your side.

You may or may not be completely up to date with the proposed changes that will likely pass into law in relation to ‘ring fencing’ of property losses. Will this be the straw that breaks the back of many newbie property investors? If losses incurred from property investment cannot offset other taxable income does it still make sense to grow wealth via property?

What about capital gains tax – yes, this is a thing in NZ but it’s been branded ‘the bright line test’. Previously 2 years, this has also recently changed and should be factored in when buying your next property.

Tax specialist Karl Moreton from Lock & Partners joins host Darcy Ungaro to discuss and explore the impact of some of these [proposed] changes. Burying your head in the sand is not an option here if you currently hold, or are thinking of holding property.

NZ Young Professionals Podcast 27: Cam Calkoen – How to get into the right mindset, even when the chips are down

NZ Young Professionals Podcast 27: Cam Calkoen – How to get into the right mindset, even when the chips are down

 

 

 

If you saw him walking down the street you’d never guess his story. Cam Calkoen is a world class, international sprinting champion. It also happens that he has cerebral palsy. After winning multiple international championships, Cam decided to hang up the running shoes and become an inspirational speaker.

In his own words, both of these were strange choices given that he “walks funny, and talks funny” … this is how you know he is good humoured too.

In this incredibly interesting episode with podcast host, Ed McKnight, Cam talks about:

– A three step process for how to get in the right mindset … and more importantly, how to keep it
– His story of becoming an international sprinting champion
– How he made the transition to an inspirational speaker
– How he built his own credibility as a speaker by jumping on a plane to America.

Now, I’m going to be honest, I don’t usually buy into the whole ‘inspirational speaker’ thing. But, after leaving the podcast studio having talked to Cam – I can say this: he is the real deal.

Richard Poole: The ultimate vacation – Retirement!

Richard Poole: The ultimate vacation – Retirement!

Join host Darcy Ungaro, co-host Pumpkin, and special guest Richard Poole (co-founder of 50+ community Grown Ups) on this episode. Retirement is not necessarily a destination, it’s more of vacation that starts in the mind well before you get there. Getting your head into retirement now, to avoid shocks later on.

Let’s be honest, it’s critical to grow wealth now while you can – you’re going to need it later on. Don’t define wealth solely using $$ however – it’s far more than this. Richard takes us through his observations of this community, sharing insights that can help us get our heads straight today. Wealth is about money, physical security (housing), good relationships (family and friends), an active mind and yes, money.
