Motivated money | Peter Thornhill

Peter Thornhill’s experience and insights into wealth creation through investment and his entertaining delivery make for a good read. Motivated Money led to Thornhill becoming a sought after presenter and recognised financial commentator. Thornhill himself lives on a passive dividend income of over $500,000 due to consistent investing in strong dividend yielding stocks.

Thornhill challenges you to check your financial prejudices, such as the concept of certain asset classes being ‘riskier’ or ‘safer’ than others. He then demonstrates that over longer time frames, commonly accepted financial prejudices are just plain wrong.

  1. Good review mate. Motivated Money is an easy read with a simple message.
    It has played a big part in shaping my investment approach. No stress, buy the dips, trust in the big low cost LICs and spend your valuable time doing other things. Works good enough for me.
