At Sassy we tend to focus quite a lot on how to spend your money – from clothes to fitness, pampering and spas to eating out. Sometimes though we look at our empty bank accounts towards the end of the month or that hefty credit card bill and remember that we’d rather not turn into real-life Carrie Bradshaws, with all of our net worth invested in shoes! Last week we met the inimitable Brad Erasmus, otherwise known as Rich Brad Poor Brad, who runs Women’s Wealth Workshops that we think are just perfect for Sassy girls. Brad takes a “been there, done that” approach to his teaching, making no secret of the fact that just 10 short years ago he was USD65,000 in debt. From that low point, he totally turned his financial life around and is now a millionaire.
Brad’s next Women’s Wealth Workshop begins next week, and the syllabus is the perfect representation of Brad’s common-sense approach to money management. He’ll help you through identifying your feelings towards money, where you are right now in terms of incomings and outgoings, clue you in on the basics of stock market and property investing, and even talk you through starting up a small business – something Sassy is extremely keen to hear more about! The best thing is that Brad runs his courses out of passion – he’s not trying to talk you into buying any financial products at the end of it, so you can be sure that the advice is unbiased and honest.
And why does Brad choose to only teach women? Well, as he says, “Men think they know it all anyway”! He finds that women come to his courses with open minds, happy to ask questions and not caught up in ego. Take a look at some of the testimonials he has received from Hong Kong women who have taken his course previously.
Brad’s September Courses will run on Tuesday evenings from 7 t0 9pm from the 7th September to the 12th October, and if you prefer more intensive 3-hour sessions on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm from 11th September to 2nd October. The cost to participate is HK$2,500 for all the sessions. Email [email protected] to book your space.
