A bit of a loaded question here because I am not going to answer it. I aim to get you thinking about this matter that has been weighing on my mind recently […..]
Just a quick thought experiment for you today.
I find it rather sad that after all is said and done, after 40 years of working at our job we are just an employee file number to our employer. Our employer moves on. They usually replace us, and we are all but a distant memory. Yet for us, our time in employment […..]
David Hisco has thanked thousands of donors for coughing up over $400,000 to fund his need to travel in a limousine.
When asked about the crowd funding page, Hisco replied “Limousines aren’t cheap you know?”
Hisco lashed out at reporters when they asked him why he doesn’t travel in more traditional forms of transportation like the rest of society. “You have to be kidding me” he added “As a bank manager I was responsible for loaning billions to everyday New Zealanders. The least I deserve is something back in return”.
Mr Hisco finished the statement by saying “A 3 million dollar a year income is not what it used to be. Times are tough”.

Everyone is so busy these days. I have to book weeks in advance to catch up with friends and family. We say things like “I have so much on at the moment”, or “things are just crazy.”
There is nothing wrong with being busy if what you are busy adds value to your life. Such as starting a business or being prime minister. It is when we are busy just for the […..]
One year ago I finally hit the publish button on my thoughts. It was, and still is, my intention to help New Zealanders be better with their money.
As a nation, our savings rate is negative 2%. This is quite frankly shocking, and will never allow us to reach any sort of financial freedom. At these savings rates, we will forever be […..]
When was the last time you read an article about hose prices in New Zealand? My guess is it hasn’t been too recent.
Up until last year there were articles daily. “Record house prices”. “I made $500,000 flipping property”.
Banks, property developers, property investors, and real estate companies were all actively promoting content on our computer screens. Where have they all gone now? It’s been extremely quiet […..]
