During this episode, I review a common theme running through both Mikes and Hywles episodes, FYR009 and FYR010. Although they come from two very different professions, Mike is a successful professional fund manager and Hywel is a successful business consultant, they both stressed the importance of planning.
The official Podcast of Fund Your Retirement is to help democratise finance by providing the strategies and insights about finance, the markets, and the many different solutions for funding your long-term retirement, by showcasing experts in the field of finance and wealth-building strategies, including our market and economic insights.
FYR 010: Business Consultant Hywel Discusses Business Planning, Online Networking, and Business Start-Up
Hywel started his career working in the oil and gas industry working on large multi-million-pound projects. Hywel spent many years, organising large teams, attending high-level board meetings, and ensuring these multi-million-pound projects were delivered on time and within budget.
Hywel left the oil and gas business in 2016, taking his immense knowledge, specialising in business strategy, business planning, and business analysis for small to medium-sized companies and start-ups.
Mike Andrews is the founder of Traders Temple Capital and Asset Management, specialising in global currencies and commodities and is the head trader of the Fund Your Retirement fund.
Watching your net worth increase over the years is a comforting and rewarding experience; it gives a feeling of security and also the freedom that comes when the time is ready, you will be able to do what you want, with who you want, when you want.
During your journey to funding your retirement, you will experience many setbacks, some setbacks because of the decisions you made personally, when this happens, own it, learn from it, dust yourself off and carry on. Sometimes, situations will arise you have no control over, like the one we are collectively facing now. Developing the right mental framework serves two purposes; it gives you discipline and certainty in an uncertain environment.
This is the fifth and final principle for funding your retirement, Income Producing Assets
Income-producing assets are the ability to generate a regular income for yourself after expenses, such as rental properties, stocks, bonds, land, and businesses.
Entrepreneurship is far more than starting a business; it is the ability to learn and adapt, which is one of the essential skills to have in life. Humans have always been creative and had to adapt to their surroundings, and today is no different. The world is changing and is requiring adaptation.
