Two Billionaire Traits You Can Adopt

I have worked in and around the money industry for more than 27 years. I have known billionaires, millionaires and those that aspire to be. I’ve also made and lost millions running my own business, evolution media group, for over 20 years.

    And once again the regulator finds a way to stop ordinary people from getting advice by placing high costs on people who do the right thing. If a finfluencer is actually trying to scam someone, it would not be hard to operate outside Australian jurisdiction.
