A Wealthy Life

Oct 13, 2022

Episode 33 – Back to 2008 - Show Notes


We have been hearing the word “recession” for months, with experts divided and citizens confused. So far it seems that a recession has not yet hit, but lately the news has ramped up reports of a troubled market, rising interest rates and soaring inflation.


On this episode, we will make sense of what all this means for wealth building, with emphasis on property investment, debt and re-mortgaging. What is causing all this economic chaos? How can we carry on with our wealth plans when things are so uncertain? With so much out of our individual control, is there anything we can do to keep our finances in check?


Lucky for you, Vicki got her start in property investment right around the 2008 crisis and has seen it all since then. Tune in for some tested tips to weathering uncertain times.
