Part of the plan for me to achieve a strong financial education is to attend as many seminars as possible,
and network with as many individuals as I can.
In doing this, I've signed up for a free Ironfish seminar, and also their free financial strategy meeting.
After briefly skimming through their website, alarm bells have went off. This is due to their information
regarding the importance of tax benefits, and also the great opportunities to be had purchasing new
buildings and off the plan developments. (I still remember my Dad explaining negative gearing to me
for the first time. I thought he was pulling my leg).
So, my question to you whizz's, is what can I expect going to this personal financial strategy tomorrow
and what sorts of hard hitting questions should I ask to ascertain whether this group is going to indeed
bring me closer to my goals, or whether they just want me to part with my sweet virgin capital.
Thanks, everyone.zorrohdMember@zorrohdJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 34
DON'T SIGN UP FOR ANYTHING!!!!!
even if you have to go with the lame excuse that you need to talk to your partner first and they are currently on safari in deepest darkest Africa and therefore not contactable by phone.Nigel KibelParticipant@nigel-kibelJoin Date: 2005Post Count: 1,425
I definitely won't be signing up for anything. Have you had any experience with Ironfish?matthewhorneParticipant@matthewhorneJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 37
I have been to a couple of their seminars. The Founder of IronFish is an asian bloke and that is therefore their major clientele. They "promote" their properties as only being negatively geared for 5-7 years in most instances. Scary to believe that a lot of these people who attended actually signed up with them afterwards with this kind of information!!!
That's incredible. Must have been some pretty well marketed stuff!zorrohdMember@zorrohdJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 34
No experience with Ironfish, but certainly had a few others try to get their sticky fingers in my purse. Anyway, at our early stage of the property journey, any knowledge is handy, even if its what not to do, or who not to listen to. <moderator: delete language>
Maybe if a seminar is 'free'' there is an ulterior motive? Like trying to sell you something? Just saying……
