Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

I know I’ve got some good examples of that one, probably the funniest one being how I failed my driving theory test first time around.

I was probably a typical 17-year old growing up.

Thought I knew it all (in fact I knew just about enough to get away with not trying too hard at school, which left more time for playing football), and a bit arrogant.

So ahead of my driving theory test I did more or less zero studying.

I subsequently failed it, no surprise – before getting properly ripped by my mates.

I then decided to study and knew it inside and out, getting 100% on my second attempt.

Not sure if I could recall everything in the Highway Code now, but you get the point.

When it comes to your finances there’s a really easy way to protect your future.

Reduce your outgoings, and start investing as early as possible.

The amplifiers are then linked to whether you can increase your income from your main stream while reducing your outgoings (i.e. don’t increase your expenses in line with salary increases), and what you can find to invest in that generates better than standard returns.

My Spend It Wisely booklet that goes out to all new subscribers can help with the first part, and then my monthly guides do the second job.

By subscribing to Guerrilla Investors my aim is that you don’t then just protect your future, but you thrive during it (regardless of who’s the Prime Minister/President and how Brexit plays out).

Keep an eye on Italy later this year though, a storm is brewing over there.

Future proofers who see the value in a £2.63 a day investment in their education can join the subscription smarties here:

All the best,

Stephen Wallis
