Fear of public speaking

Podcast 17 – This weeks podcast is slightly off topic. DESPITE this being a personal finance podcast im going to be talking about public speaking. Or in my case – the fear of public speaking.

Why ? and how does this relate to finance?
Personally, I feel communication is very important. And if you were a confident speaker – this could well lead to improving your personal finances. For example, property is my main strategy to get financial independence. If I can improve my communication skills, this may well lead to investors due to improved networking skills. With more investors, I will be able to grow DUFF PROPERTIES quicker … and this will improve my personal finances … you get the point.

Finally understanding the figures

Podcast 16 – In my 1st 16 years as a Landlord, I didn’t do any property calculations. The truth is, I didn’t know any property calculations. You could say I was like the proverbial rabbit caught in headlights, that you sometimes see on dragon’s den. That person who has a really good idea but doesn’t understand the figures. They get asked about profit margins and they are clueless. That was me.
