My book launch is on tonight at 6pm at Dymocks Collins Street Melbourne. I'm super excited to meeting you, sign some books, and celebrate ... it's currently the #2 best selling book in the country ... pipped at the post by some fly-by-nighter called JK Rowling.
About four years ago, my wife entered our living room waving a pregnancy stick above her head like she was Mitchell Johnson triumphantly screaming HOWZAT! at the umpire. “We’re pregnant!” she cheered. I was like a defiant Indian batsman disputing the inside edge. “Give me a look.” We both stared...

My wife is a television producer so you’d expect her to have a refined viewing pallette. Not so. She watches The Bachelorette, the Real Housewives of Bendigo, and any program where everyday Aussies commentate on their own cooking: “I just knew I’d be going home when my caramel soufflé refused...

A couple of years ago my wife dragged me along to the opening of an art exhibition. Dutifully, I stood there with a glass of bubbly in one hand and a quizzical look in the other. I felt as out of place as a sober dude on a dancefloor. Worse,...

I often write about investments that sound too good to be true. There’s a reason for this: people continually ask me about investments that sound too good to be true. So this week, just for kicks, I thought I’d revisit a couple of stories … a sort of financial catastrophe...

“Former Domino’s pizza delivery boy who earned $10 an hour owns 14 renovated properties and is now semi-retired at the age of 28 (and he says you can do it too)” read the headline this week. And all the renters groaned. Okay, so paint me purple and call me Dorothy...

If you were a drug dealer, how do you think you’d want to be paid? PayPal? No. PayWave? Well, no. You’d want to be paid in cold, hard cash. And if you were ‘Breaking Bad’ big, you’d only want to deal in $100 notes — anything smaller would be too...

Donald Trump reminds me of the bullies who teased me at school. Anyone who stands up to him gets a put-down: ‘Crooked Hillary’, ‘Little Marco’, ‘Low Energy Ted’. His aim is to get everyone laughing at them, just like in a classroom. And like all bullies, he only wins by...

My column last week — why engagement rings are a scam (and why you’ll buy one anyway) — went off like a drunk uncle on the dance floor. I was flooded with emails. Perhaps it’s because we’re in the peak season for weddings. Or maybe it’s because it coincided with...

Barefoot, should I call off my wedding?

This column is dedicated to all the brothers out there who are buying an engagement ring this weekend. And there’s a lot of you. According to the ABS, 120,000 people get hitched each year. That’s 60,000 blokes, and 60,000 rocks. It’s stressful (you know her taste … right?) and bloody...

Saturday at our house is father-and-son day. Usually that means running around chasing chooks, manhandling the sheepdog, and getting as dirty as possible. However, when our house burned down (a couple of years ago) we found ourselves holed up temporarily in the city — so I was forced to improvise......

Right now I’m on holidays with my family in Bali. The last time Liz and I were here, we were newlyweds without a care in the world. I’d romantically feed her strawberries and we’d laze by the pool, armed only with our bathers, towels and a frosty beer. “Tapas?” Liz...

It looks increasingly like the Government doesn’t have the ticker to beat the banks. Well, bugger it, let’s have our own Royal Commission into banking misconduct. Let me grab my gavel and my girly wig. The Court is in session, the dishonourable Judge Barefoot presiding. Order, Order, Order… Best Eve...

Do you know the biggest lesson I’ve learned from answering thousands of people’s questions? Most people ask the wrong question. They frame it like it’s black or white. Cut and dried. A hopeless situation with no way out. (Whether it’s true is beside the point — it’s true for them.)...

Malcolm, I feel for you, brother. On Wednesday, after the banks behaved like brats by not passing on all of the Reserve Bank’s rate cut, the Prime Minister held a press conference. He said — essentially word for word — the same things I say to my toddler each night...

Have you ever thought about flipping your boss the bird, and doing your own thing? I’m sure you have. A survey released last week by the NAB found that one in three Aussies want to be their own boss. The urge to bird is even stronger for young people —...

“Aussie Dream is Dying” read a newspaper headline earlier in the week. I happened to be reading the article as I was waiting for a coffee. So I turned to my hipster barista — who was all beardy and tattooed and David Beckham-like — and read him the following sentence:...

Are you looking for Australia’s biggest and best super fund? Well, that’s what we’re going to cover today. You see, the front page of the Australian Financial Review this week said that NAB is the new king of super, claiming the bragging rights of Australia’s biggest retail super fund. It’s...

Well, it looks like the nation’s superannuation reforms are now in the hands of … Pauline Hanson. And that’s quite concerning, given that I seriously doubt Pauline could tell the difference between a hedge fund and a halal burger. “Please explain?” So until Canberra clears its political bowels, it s...

Happy new financial year! Actually, the start of the new fiscal year won’t be that happy for everybody. I’ve always thought that politics was showbiz for ugly people, and the weekend’s non-election had more twists and turns that an episode of House of Cards. It seems like the only real...
