We've always associated the word 'fitness' with physical health, but have you ever heard of the term "money fitness"?

Today, we're talking to Owen Raszkiewicz, Founder of Rask Australia. He shares his tips on what you should do to begin your money fitness journey, get extra funding, manage instant gratification and something a lot of property people don't like to cover but that we're up for: discussing other investment opportunities beyond real estate.

We also answer questions like, "What do we need to know about money that we don't get taught at school?" and, "What can we do to make the most of our income and what else can you invest in besides property?" as we explore what it means to be 'money-fit'.

There's so much gold in this episode and the information is definitely too valuable to pass up! Tune in now and we'll see you on the inside!
