In today’s episode, we will speak to my friend Adine from Lekker Leven met Minder.
Adine is from The Netherlands and we met last September at Fincon. Although we met at a Money/Finance conference, one of her favourite topics is Money Mindset. A topic I really enjoy because, in my opinion, that is where it is all starts. And if you think about it, it is true. You can write or read about the best financial tips, the next best stock with the highest potential growth, the best area to own a rental property and so on. If you do not have the correct Money Mindset in the first place, you will always be struggling in a way or another. … More Do you have a Scarcity or an Abundance mindset?

In today’s episode, we will speak to my friend Naza from Copenhagen (Denmark).
I met Naza through common friends when visiting them in Copenhagen on several occasions. We have been keeping in touch through Facebook over the years, she is a positive person and when I met her she seemed very happy and dedicated about her career. Just in November of this year, she posted on her Facebook profile that she would leave her corporate job and her happy life in the bustling Scandinavian capital to move to Asia to pursue her dreams of becoming a licensed yoga teacher, to teach English to underprivileged Thai children and open her yoga school in Bali! That was quite a surprise to me but I was very happy for her at the same time.
Naza will share her story and lessons with us on the show and even if you are not planning to change your life in such an extreme way, there are some great takeaways from the conversation for all of us! … More How Naza left her stable (but stressful) career and turned her life upside down completely to pursue her dreams in Asia

Gold has been around since centuries and currently indeed often seen as a good store of value and a great diversification tool since it is uncorrelated to stocks for example.
