G’day, I’m Scott Pape
The Barefoot Investor and #1 bestselling author of
The Only Money Guide You’ll Ever Need.
For over a decade, millions of Aussies from all walks of life have listened to me to learn how to save money, grow their wealth, and become financially independent.
Unlike many financial ‘experts’, who may not have your best interests at heart, my goal is simple: to help you keep your family safe… by giving you the same simple, fiercely independent financial advice I’d give my own mum.
And if you follow the commonsense principles I’ll teach you for protecting and growing your wealth… a year, five years, or ten years from now, you’ll be wealthier, happier, and safer.
So how’d a country kid who grew up on a farm end up teaching millions of Australians about money? If you’re interested, here’s a little more about me.
A dozen years ago, when I first pulled on a tie and walked into work at the Australian Stock Exchange, I knew I was different.
You see, I grew up in the small country town of Ouyen, Victoria, working the land with my father — barefoot and free. And that’s why I’d gone into finance: not for the wealth, or the notoriety, or the $300 pairs of jeans. I just wanted to keep my freedom.
But I quickly realised I was the odd one out.
I saw that the game was crooked… and most ‘advisors’ were posers who didn’t have two bob to rub together. They made their money from leaching commissions and kickbacks from their clients.
So I figuratively kicked off my shoes… and began treading my own path.
I took what I learnt about finance, turned it into a set of commonsense guidelines, and lived by those rules. No magic. No gambling with stocks. Just sound financial planning.
And since then, I’ve never had to worry about money again.
I want to teach you those rules for building your wealth.
I know the things I’ve learnt can apply to anyone, in any situation … yet the people who should be telling you these things, don’t.
Why? Because if you’re in the dark, it’s that much easier for them to charge useless fees, take a percentage of your investments, or push you into debt so they can make money off you every month.
For most people in the financial industry, the less you know, the more they make.
I made it my mission to change that… and reach as many people as possible.
So over the last decade, I’ve worked with the Australian Government… presented for Channel Seven… advised AFL and NRL teams on finance… and reached hundreds of thousands each week in the paper and on the radio.
And recently, my book The Only Money Guide You’ll Ever Need was Australia’s #1 bestseller for four straight months, selling 400,000+ copies… and it’s changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of families around the country.
And I’d like you to be next.
