7IM LogoThis podcast is brought to you with the help of Seven Investment Management, a firm of investment managers based in London. They specialise in multi-asset investing, bringing institutional investing techniques to ordinary people like you and me. 7IM put their name to my show and to my site because they believe in what I’m doing, trying to get decent, easy-to-understand financial information out to the world. I’m very grateful to them for their support. You can see what they’re up to at

In this session you will discover:

  • How goals keep you focused
  • The best way to stay excited about your future plans
  • That sometimes it's OK to go easy on yourself
  • Why you should talk to yourself, not listen to yourself
  • A great strategy for drowning out the negative inner voice
  • One key practice for staying on track

Inspiration is just as important as financial knowledge. I hope to bring some more inspiring stories to you over the coming weeks. There’s a wealth of information here, and I’ll keep going with that too, don’t worry. But I want this show to become more rounded as it matures. Always interested to hear what you think of that, so do let me know in the comments.
