In this webinar, Jason Willis-Lee will discuss a long-term investment programme aimed to get you thinking about your retirement sooner rather than later. For a long time now he has been reading articles and books about money, personal finance and investing. Most of this reading came from a desire not to repeat unforgivable money blunders of the past and to educate himself about the ins and outs of the world of money. At times a taboo topic, he grew up in a climate where heads were physically bowed if the “M” word dared to be mentioned. He now dispels such toxic and ultimately harmful money beliefs and tries and instigates a healthier relationship with money always from the point of view of guilt-free spending and long-term investment for the future.

Key takeaways

  • Learn how to avoid money blunders
  • Get to grip with the basics of setting up an investment programme
  • Start to think about money, years or even decades into the future
