Our contributors share their investment tips and stories…
How do you invest in yourself? I belong to three clubs: a traditional gentlemen’s club, a Soho club, and the Porchester Spa steam baths. I find them vital for social interaction, health and wellbeing.
If money were no object, you would buy… A small house in Los Feliz, an old district of Los Angeles that I love.
What’s been the biggest waste of money in your life so far? Sticking with bad stock market investments in the vain hope that they will come good. My stepfather always said you need to know when to cut your losses.
2019 is the year for… Procrastination… as ever!
How do you invest in yourself? I invest in shallow and deep ways: a weekly mindfulness course to deal with stress and phobias, and excerise along with regular facials – I’m particularly fond of Japanese Kobido massage.
If money were no object, you would buy… An island off the coast of Mexico. I would live there as much as possible, provide a fun-filled holiday for friends and family, run it how I want and avoid the side of life I don’t like.
What’s been the biggest waste of money in your life so far? Ill thought out clothing choices.
2019 is the year for… Everything environmental, from beauty products and spas to cars.
How do you invest in yourself? I visit an incredible vortex energy healer, Suzi Morris, and I do a weekly one-on-one boxing session. It’s the best workout.
If money were no object, you would buy… I am obsessed with Lara Bohinc’s ‘Solaris Kinetic’ marble and brass tables – the marble plates move like orbits, reminding me how connected we are to the planet. And I would do anything to own one of the original deep blue Jaguar D-Types from the Fifties.
What’s been the biggest waste of money in your life so far? Handbags I didn’t need and clocking up far too much on Uber.
2019 is the year for… Positivity, progress and remembering that everything happens for a reason.
How do you invest in yourself? I take time to analyse what does and doesn’t work for me.
If money were no object, you would buy… Lots of properties for my family.
What’s been the biggest waste of money in your life so far? My Starbucks habit. It’s not even good coffee and it’s packed with sugar. Plus, to really enjoy a coffee you need to sit down rather than sipping on the go.
2019 is the year for… New projects!
