Kan-u do something like this?

Hal Robson-Kanu. Ring any sleigh (ahem) bells? If you’re Welsh, you’ll remember his awesome Cruyff turn goal in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals. If you’re not, and if you have no interest in football, then you’ve likely never heard of him. But you may be hearing more...

Free risk and due diligence train-cast

I’ve decided to take a few days off from Guerrilla Investors fun to play with the kids, drink Baileys, see my family, and read a book or two. But not before I’ve pointed you to a free risk and due diligence bit of training I did for the Virtual Non Execs guys just...

I trade you one less round of drinks…

…For my bonuses bundle. Statistics seem to vary depending on the age group, but it’s said that roughly 50% of UK adults have no savings. Which proves to be a problem when the car breaks down, or some other unexpected bill pops up (or you overspend around Christmas)....

A non-politics haven called Guerrilla Investors Island

You may or may not have realised that your inbox wasn’t filled with UK politics stuff over the past few weeks, even though I should have mentioned what would happen to the FTSE 250 last Friday (it was sooo obvious, but I also forgot to put a long position in on...

On the something day of Christmas

Ok, we may not be each other’s true love, and there are 16 videos on the bonuses bundle which means even if I’d thought of this earlier it wouldn’t have worked. Buuuuttt, Over recent months I’ve created numerous products, reports, services etc and in almost all...

A Christmas present for yourself

Come on we all do it. While you’re visiting the rainforest website, or tackling the crowds (not literally) on the high street or at the retail park/shopping centre – I’m pretty sure everyone pops a ‘present for yourself’ into the basket. I did it a few weeks ago...

Flukey crypto investing

I’ll be the first to admit that my recent success since switching out of my ten or so cryptos into just one was a bit of a fluke. I’d read around a bit, but my main reason for pooling my (not exactly big amounts of the likes of) TRON, Stellar Lumens, Monero, Cardano...

Reading and thinking, while drinking

One of the great things about the North Yorkshire market town where I live is the number of excellent pubs within walking distance of our house. The only decision that needs to be made when I pop out for a reading and thinking, while drinking, session in the early...

Argh, tax-free returns!

A couple of years ago there was no way in the bad place I would have thought that betting would be a decent investment idea. But therein lies the reason why. Until then I just thought it was about ten-fold football accumulators that might have a chance of winning...

Zero money investing

The educational part is not free though. But seeing as education always gives the best return according to such greats as Benjamin Franklin, so it shouldn’t be. Very few people know about a way to generate almost unlimited investment returns with zero money required...

Do traders try to screw over the person sat next to them?

I have absolutely no idea as I’ve never sat on a trading desk, or met people who went to LSE. From what I’ve heard a fair chunk of these no doubt smart cookies have found their way into crypto investing, blockchain designing, and building algorithms to try to find...

Dark arts investing

Nothing to do with Mrs Coulter or Lord Voldemort (fantasy novels and films fans), instead just a video to explain a bit more about what we’ll be discussing at the GITogether in Portugal in April 2020. This is the first of four videos for those who aren’t sure if the...

Walking the financial control tightrope

This metaphor has been taken and adapted from something Chris Voss said in his mindblowing book: Never Split the Difference. He says: “Focusing so much on the end objective will only distract you from the next step, and that can cause you to fall off the rope....

Show me your data Spotify

My Napster-concept-stealing application recently popped up with a message saying I’ve listened to 2,491 songs in 2019. Now I know I like listening to large amounts of alternative rock, with the odd bit of Dixie Chicks and Taylor Swift thrown in (don’t judge me), but...

Why why why, illiquidity

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a GIF out there showing Tom Jones singing this, but there probably will be if we ever stumble into this recession which has been imminent for apparently ages. I’m still not convinced it will ever happen, mainly because never before have...

Why I don’t want to be Mr Freeze

Firstly, because that was surely The Governator’s worst role ever? It’s pretty funny when you look at the cast from Batman and Robin (where Arnie played Mr Freeze) because it’s a bit of a who’s who of success and failure in the acting world. George Clooney Uma Thurman...

I hope to see you in your swimming costume

But it will depend on how warm Portugal is in April and if you book one of the twelve available spaces for the first ever… GITogether Which is officially now open for registration! I’m really excited about the event already, even though it’s four months away. I’m...

I love spreadsheets

It must be true as my wife bought me a tea mug which says it. Which I think is the evidence we’re all provided with for whatever oddities/geekiness we are each guilty of/love. Essentially a friend/family member/partner gets you a beverage holder. But I do love...

Lottery winners are often addicted to liabilities

They must be, right? How else is it possible to win £9.7m in 2002 and in 2019 be earning £10 an hour cutting firewood (apparently)? Or win £1.8m in 2003 and in 2019 be reportedly earning £12,000 a year as a carer, living in a £500-a-month rented home. Admittedly these...

Surely this is all just ‘get rich quick’ nonsense

I’m a bit disappointed no readers have accused me of this yet, I was sure there would be a few not so smart cookies throwing this around. Whether you’ve realised it or not, I’m all about taking control of your financial future – which is a million miles away from get...
