Rosanna Arquette - Developing Core Values, Staying in Gratitude, & Inspired by the Youth - 1% Better in 864 - EP124

Podcast cover
Read more
All,
This is another episode of the 864 from last year that I'm now releasing on the 1% Better channel. It's a big name and a great chat.

In this episode, I talk with Rosanna Arquette.

If you want to find out about her relationship with Madonna or other standard movie questions from her acting career, this is probably not the interview for you!

The 864 aims to understand a little bit more about the person, what they value, how they have been successful, deal with life challenges and other obstacles that get in the way and we stayed close to these topics in this conversation with Rosanna.

What I did totally not stay true to was the 864 seconds duration piece. It’s more like the 1500 second podcast but it’s not every day I get to chat with Rosanna Arquette and the good stuff kept coming so I wasn’t going to break the flow!

Check out the high-level summary of the conversation below along with some book recommendations and links the 1% Better podcast, Newsletter and more.

Quid Pro Quo Alert:
Finally, thank you for checking out this episode. My only ask – if you do enjoy, it, check out previous & future episodes, consider sharing it out in your own networks. Any of these take just a few seconds and would mean a lot me.

Summary:
•Values that Rosanna developed from a young age from her Mother & Family
•Growing up in diverse community and schools
•Her Mother having a struggle with wealth when Rosanna started to do well
•Marching with Martin Luther King
•The Flint Crisis
•Staying Positive & How to Deal with this – working hard to be positive – this is very difficult
•When you stay in gratitude, you can’t be in fear!!
•Inspired by the energies of the youth and students!
•Focus on the Good and We shall overcome!
•Harvey Weinstein
•Cliché & Sayings to Live by - March for our Lives & No human being is illegal

Michael Houghton - How to Achieve Financial Independence, Tracking Happiness, & Peer to Peer Lending! EP122

Podcast cover
Read more
Michael Houghton is an Entrepreneur & Investor, originally from New Zealand and now living in Ireland. He is on a mission to become financially independent. Like many, he has grown tired of selling his time for money so started to look into ways at which he could work less, but still earn as much and enjoy more free time with his family.

After spending a lot of time planning how, he started to execute on his strategy and in 2018 he was able to cut down from full time to part time work as a freelance developer.

This was his first step towards freeing up my time and seeing a lifestyle change as a result of his decision to chase financial freedom. Since then he’s been continuing to work towards this goal and earlier this year set up his website – playingwithfire.ie where he transparently shares his investment portfolio and how much progress he is making. Michael also has started sharing his learnings and advice through his podcast and blog posts. All available from his site here
His ultimate goal is to build a portfolio that produces enough monthly income to cover my monthly expenses - at that point, he will be truly financially independent.
For me this was a very interesting conversation. I wanted to learn more about his approach and sacrifices he and his family need to make to realise this goal. I also was very interested in learning more about the Peer to Peer lending services he is using as well as other investments that he is making.

Here is a summary of the topics we covered during the interview. I hope you enjoy listening to this one and learn something new from it that might be of value.

Summary:
•Earning 12-15% interest with Peer to Peer lending with Minos.com
•Investment in forestry & Christmas Trees!
•Seeing an investment as an expense
•Changing the Mindset on investment – Earning for now instead of for retirement
•The Value of Compound Interest

•Monitoring expenses on a daily basis and the challenge of this
•Changing the lifestyle now, not at 65
•The day to day struggle of managing the budget to attain this
•Tracking their expenses and knowing where their money goes.
•Tricks to prevent themselves living pay cheque to pay cheque.
•Reducing expenses that simply don't bring them happiness.
•Discussing the time VS money debate and focusing on giving ourselves more time
•Challenging the "I hate Monday's" attitude by working towards something bigger than just getting up and going to a 9-5 job.
