My Story

The Motley Fool Australia's Takestock got me hooked on investing as a 20-year-old. I have never looked back. I worked as a full-time writer/analyst for the AU team, and continue to freelance. I also did a stint as an Investment Analyst at Australia's #1 mutual fund research firm before recently founding my own financial education company, Rask Finance. www.raskfinance.com.
