Ep 11: Private vs Public Health Insurance

12/11/2018
More
Every Australian has a level of health cover through the Medicare System, but as young adults we ask ourselves whether or not it is a good idea to go private. We are often bombarded with an overload of information and it can be difficult to work out the exact coverages, costs, and value for money between public and private cover. Today we are getting to the bottom of health insurance and what might be the best option for you. Featuring on this episode is Andrew Davis, CEO of Health...

More
Do you have Life Insurance or Income protection? Do you know what they are, what they do and whether you need them? We certainly didn’t, so we took a drive down to Advice First to visit Senior Financial Planner and Corporate Benefits Specialist Travis Bailey.

This includes death cover, total and permanent disability, Trauma and Income protection...

Ep 9: Town Planning

11/21/2018
More
In this episode we are talking all things town planning, zoning and property development. Why is this relevant? Essentially, if you are wanting to buy a house you definitely want to consider what area you should buy in, what potential development could occur and what the council has restricted to that area. So, to teach us all about this we visited Scott Nind, the General Manager of RPS Gold Coast (Talking Cents went on tour).

Ep 8: Aussie Politics Explained

11/18/2018
More
How our political system works is something many millennials are not 100% certain about. However, it is something that can be very powerful if we all engage in it. To talk us through this, we had a chat with John Slater, who is an absolute expert in politics (he’s worked for members of federal parliament and majored in political science so definitely deserves the title of ‘absolute expert’), So whether you don’t understand why we’ve had so many prime ministers in the last decade, why we...

Expanding our savings is something that we all hope to achieve, and budgeting is a great tool to do it. However, the word ‘budget’ can be heavily misinterpreted and misunderstood.

Ep 4: Finding a super Superannuation

10/21/2018
More
We all know that superannuation traditionally is quite a boring topic. We can’t access our super for quite a while - so why should we care about it now? Surely, we have better things to worry about. Well, Jak Johnston from Growth Focus, busts this myth for us. We should care about our super. A lot. And the best way to do that is to do some research into your current situation, listen to our chat with Jak and review your circumstances.
