Why you should love sleep and killing dopamine loops

My reading list can be found on one of the Guerrilla Investors pages, however I’ll be honest and tell you it’s not updated as regularly as it should be. If it was, I would need to do that task weekly and I’m just not gonna. I try to keep up with one of my Guerrilla...

300% ROI

Following on from yesterday, let’s also expand on those other two bullet points I mentioned: • 1 in 4 adults within the UK suffer from a mental health disorder each year. • On average, workplace health programmes return £4 for every £1 spent. I don’t know if it’s...

Championing workplace Health

A few weeks ago I met up with the founder of Champion Health, a nice chap by the name of Harry Bliss. We were introduced by a mutual contact, and talked about various aspects of mental and physical wellbeing. These days the former is well documented and reported on,...

Shocking wealth managers

I totally forgot to include this in yesterday’s email. I’ve spoken to a few wealth managers and family office people over the past year or so, and they always ask me the same question (maybe it’s in their training manual): “So what level of return do you target?” I...

One for the lazies who would rather be less lazy

I’ve been talking to my contacts in the alternative investment world recently about how everyone seems to want everything done for them these days. Maybe it’s the social media clickbait that’s more important. Or that latest whatever it is on Netflix or Amazon Prime....

Have you prepared for your upcoming redundancy?

I was made redundant back in 2009 from my financial analyst job at a media firm in London. The credit crisis (as it was known at the time) was hitting advertising hard, so our team was halved. I was pretty happy about it as I was already planning to leave, and took...

Where nodding your head means no

I was chatting with my kids over breakfast the other day and randomly remembered learning a few years ago how nodding your head means no in some countries. I was told this by a Bulgarian colleague, and have found that it’s the same in Greece, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey,...

To learn and not to do…

…Is not to learn. I’m currently reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey and I reckon I could fill a notebook with the number of quotes. This book has been on my list for a while, and it’s a recommended read if you don’t know of it. This...

Aye aye Kapten!

As far as I know Kapten hasn’t expanded beyond London as yet, so only a small group of readers will probably have heard of them. Basically these guys are rivalling Uber, which means that the german-phrased unicorn may now find it overly (geddit) hard to turn a profit....

Where’s the WIIFM?

Several years ago (pre-kids) I worked for a great company as a Financial Analyst, reporting on credit and fraud losses and trying to prevent future ones. It was a fun job and I worked with some really great people. One of my favourites was the South African Commercial...

One for those who’ve been burned by advisors

I’ve had a few interesting calls and meetings with wealth managers recently. One of them was a nice lad, although I think we disagreed more than we agreed during our fairly short meeting. The other one I only spoke to on the phone, and he may or may not have stolen a...

Close but no doughnut cops!

Or should that be donut? Sorry, couldn’t resist a Simpsons quote (a la Snake). You may or may not work in the police force, but it doesn’t take a detective to know that if you put off subscribing in June then you won’t have seen the Decryptifying Crypto guide land in...

But I really want a Lambo by next week!

Most people are super lazy. I think it must be down to this I want it (or should that be have to have it/deserve it) now culture. It makes people think that all of the world’s bounty should just land at their feet, without any work or effort on their part. Because...

Watch out for Skynet

The year is 2021. President Trump has just put a tariff in place against the last remaining country on the planet, and Prime Minister Corbyn has decided that anyone earning over £40,000 per year will be taxed a flat 60%.............starting tomorrow. Science fiction?...

How I solve your new product fix

I was telling someone the other day how I love it when people unsubscribe from my daily email list. I don’t know for sure of course, but I’m guessing that they came to the Guerrilla Investors website, saw they could sign up for something for free (yaayy, free stuff!),...

Just for the Buy and HODLers

If you’re the type of person who has read the last few emails and thought there’s no point in subscribing because it looks like my upcoming guide on cryptos is all about trading, then then you’re missing the point of leveraging other’s work. I’ve put my own money into...

Getting your money out working for you

I heard this week that a particularly well-known marketing business owner sets himself a target for how little of his money should be sat in his bank account on any particular day – and gets very annoyed if it’s anything over this threshold. I found this interesting,...

Letting you walk in my shoes

For the first time in one of the Guerrilla Investors guides, subscribers will be able to read exactly what my plan is regarding the topic in question. As crypto is unregulated, I’m able to say more or less whatever I want this month. It’s been pretty liberating, as...
