HotCopper and The Market Online are excited to bring you a new show called Money and Investing hosted by Andrew Baxter and Mitch Olarenshaw.

This episode is especially for those in their 30s and 40s, looking at the biggest financial mistakes that can be made at this stage of life and how to avoid them.

Andrew Baxter and Mitch begin by exploring common financial pitfalls people face in that age group, emphasising the importance of balancing lifestyle and financial commitments. They discuss the impact of lifestyle inflation and the need for proper planning, especially when starting a family.

Next, Andrew Baxter and Mitch discuss the dangers of overspending and the importance of budgeting. We share personal anecdotes about the consequences of hedonistic spending and the value of having a mentor to provide accountability.

They cover the significance of having a backup plan, multiple income streams, and proper financial structuring. And they look at the risks of high-stakes investments and the importance of avoiding them, especially if you lack financial experience.

Money and Investing examines the long-term effects of financial mistakes, including relationship strain and the potential for financial instability in retirement. They look at the importance of starting early, making informed decisions, and having clear financial goals.

Finally, today’s show provides practical advice on how to get back on track and stresses the importance of having a mentor and a solid financial plan.
