Bitcoin Craze

Bitcoin Craze - What is it all about?

There is an old adage in the share market, when the shoeshine boy is telling you to buy; it’s time to get out. When it comes to Bitcoin, we are well and truly at this point. The price of Bitcoin has increased 30 fold in 4 years. A Bitcoin is now worth about 10 times what it was in January. Everyone is talking about Bitcoin, the shoeshine boy is telling you to buy.

The surge in price is great for people who bought into Bitcoin before the huge increase but has all the hallmarks of a bubble. It has already surpassed every investment bubble in history with the only exception being the Tulip Mania bubble in 1637 where a tulip bulb sold for as much as 10 times a skilled craftsman’s annual salary.

Holiday Season

Planning for the Holiday season

I love the festive season! From Melbourne Cup to Australia Day it seems to be a procession of parties, BBQs and events - all the stuff I love. It is also a time that many of us go on holidays and let’s not forget all the Christmas presents. What a great time of year! Did I mention I LOVE it?!

It is also the most expensive time of year. If you are not careful, it can have negative financial consequences.  Overspending is all too common at this time of year, often compounded by funding the overspending by inefficient methods.
