  • Kōura review – Crypto meets KiwiSaver

    kōura is a KiwiSaver provider who launched in late 2019.

  • 61. Revisit with Bella: I don’t want a student debt hangover!

    In today’s podcast, I’m doing a revisit with Bella who I interviewed in Episode 52.

She explains how she has been tackling her $85,000 of student loan debt and how people are so wrong when they say that interest-free student loan debt just does not matter. Because it does. It matters a whole lot. Bella has not been idle, smashing out $66,000 of debt in just 14 months. Yep, you read that right. If she can do it, so can you!
