It’s Time For a Revolution!

It’s time for a revolution

“Australia needs a financial revolution, and it needs to start with our kids!” Scott Pape (OAM)

“Every parent wants their kid to be financially secure. The problem is they have no idea how to achieve it and resort to nagging and bribing until the motivation to teach them … fizzles out. So I created something that kids can do on their own. It’s not just a book, it’s an EPIC money ADVENTURE!” said Scott


It's time for a revolution!

Today’s guest wrote Australia’s number 1 bestselling book The Barefoot investor – the only money guide you’ll ever need. It’s believed to be in 1 in every 20 households across the country.

In 2020, he received the Order of Australia Medal for services to the community and financial education.

His kids think he’s a farmer, his kids teachers think he’s unemployed, because he does drop-offs most days, and some people even think he runs a cult. So, what’s the truth.

Well, according to his website, he’s just a bloke from the bush who enjoys helping people take control of their own money.

But today, he’s here to start a revolution. A financial revolution, that he says needs to start with our kids. Everybody please welcome, the Barefoot Investor, Scott Pape.
