If you live in Europe and have listened to some of the latest Podcast episodes about investing in stocks with my friends Leanna, Joseph and Sandy, you might be wondering which bank or broker to use.
The common advice is to look for online brokers instead of banks as their fees are lower. These costs have a significant impact on your overall returns, so making sure you understand the fee structure is crucial. Out of all the possible choices in Europe, one platform that stands out is DEGIRO mainly thanks to their low fees. Since I cannot try the service myself, my friend Meer of Mynder kindly accepted to share his experience with DEGIRO on the blog for us. … More DEGIRO Review: Low-Cost Stock Investing
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?
