Learn using 'The Money House' framework

Learning works better when you have a framework. Here we have used 'the money house' as a framework for how you can think about organising your wealth.

You can watch a video explaining 'The Money House'

Freedom Slab

When you just need a basic roof, you put in a flat slab. Similarly, when you need a passive income to 'retire', you can convert some of your wealth into a diversified income portfolio.

Growth Pillars

Just like a house needs strong pillars to hold it up, you need at least two pillars to help you grow. The first is self-learning - you need to keep learning to enhance your skills and earn better. The second is growth assets - ideally a portfolio of shares in quality businesses.

Architect Blueprint

Just like an architect needs to understand her own abilities as well as the land on which the house needs to be built, you need to understand your own abilities and temperament as well as the market environment (inflation, markets, products, intermediaries etc).

Fun Roof

You can design the roof any way you want - from traditional to whimsical - to make the house your own. Even if the roof gets destroyed, your house still stands. Similarly, you can allocate some of your wealth to your hobbies or own business, knowing that if they don't work out, you can walk away.

Essentials Foundation

Just like a house needs a strong foundation that is not visible and hence, can't be damaged, you need your own good health and an emergency fund to help you re-bounce from an adverse situation.

WOMEN KNOW PLENTY ABOUT MONEY

People don’t talk about money; women even less so. Strangely, money is still one of the taboo topics in Indian society, along with sex even as politics and religious discussions have become a norm in living rooms. I asked my girlfriends about why they think this is – they simply shrugged and said something along

FAST FINANCE SERIES

The ‘Architect Blueprint’ suggests you know your own capabilities, and also the ‘lay of the land’ meaning the environment. To that end, I have created a series of videos that explain basic terms in black & white, using a whiteboard. These videos are only one minute each, so you can watch them all in one

BE MONEY CONFIDENT

Women constantly tell me they find investing boring and complicated. They tell me they wouldn’t like to lose their hard-earned money in what appears to be a casino – the sharemarket. They tell me they don’t want to spend their precious time looking at financial investments. Here’s the thing. All these statements show women have

THE MONEY TRAYS – BUDGETING MADE EASY

A budget is basically a plan on how to spend the income you have. One way to do this to first track all your expenses for a few months and then set up a budget to trim your ‘lattes and avocado toasts’. Personally, I’ve never liked the idea to focus on such details.   Setting

HOW TO ASK A MENTOR FOR COFFEE

“At the age of 23, Hansi wrote to the CEOs of 10 top firms, asking if she could buy them a cup of coffee and let her pick their brains.” This line in the HerStory article in January 2016 seems to have encouraged hundreds of youngsters to write to me over the past two years. I am yet

WHAT SAILING REMINDED ME ABOUT INVESTING

I got my first taste of sailing a few months after I’d seen the ocean for the first time. It was an amazing experience – the sight of the blue sky and bluer water, the wind in my face, the thrill of the yacht tilting…I was hooked!…though I didn’t get a chance to sail again

WHAT MY TREK REMINDED ME ABOUT INVESTING

“A trail in the Sahyadris doesn’t qualify as a trek! It’s a walk in the park compared to a real trek,” exclaimed a friend when I posted the picture on facebook. I was still proud of having made it to the top in the pouring rain as a novice, and more importantly back down without
