    Superannuation 101

    Reading Time: 4 Minutes What’s up everyone! Hope we are all having a good week. Much better for yours truly, thanks for asking. BOO-YAH, I knew it’d be a better week when on Monday, a whole bunch of us got together for an impromptu but QUALITY dinner. Like $65 all-you-can-eat top of the range Japanese BBQ quality. DAY-AM. Let’s see, my friend Light Beam was there (the future Australian Treasurer), Bubu (the most handsome of our group) and Bugzy (another EN-TRE-PRE-NEUR, guy’s got 3 online businesses on the go, jayzuz).

    Christmas Karma!

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes What’s up guys! Are we all enjoying the holidays? I hope you guys are! Cos geebers, you wouldn’t believe the week I was having – just frigging WOW. Boy am I glad to see the back of that one. It was only when a work colleague mentioned on Friday that we are in the last week until Xmas, that I looked up from my desk and realized, SHIT it’s true! So why was the week so shitty? Cos every friggin client decided the last working week of the year was the perfect time to come out from the woods and complain about this and ask about that.…
