Not everybody gets life changing investment advice while working a summer job pumping gas in Canada, but my guest today had just that happen to him.
Serendipity was smiling on Andrew Hallam when he chatted up the garage mechanic about life and money. Turns out he was a millionaire thanks to some responsible investing and its consistent returns.
This got Andrew thinking and interested in the world of investing.
While not the millionaire mechanic, Andrew instead became the millionaire teacher. Not content to just revel in the freedom, Andrew went on to share his knowledge via a regular column, two books Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School, The Global Expatriate’s Guide to Investing: From Millionaire Teacher to Millionaire Expat and of course this very podcast.
This extended interview covers the basics of investing for international teachers. It is a must listen!
Andrew Hallam is an international bestselling author of Millionaire Teacher and The Global Expatriate’s Guide To Investing. Personal finance columnist for The Globe and Mail (Canada’s national newspaper) and AssetBuilder (a financial services company based in Texas).
He is currently teaching in Singapore.
