Chris Bates - Managing Wealth With The Value of Real-life Experiences

Chris Bates is the founder of a mortgage brokerage, Wealthful. Originally from Melbourne, Bates has lived what he describes as a ‘nomad’ life. At a young age, he and his family moved to Newcastle for a job opportunity. From there, he attended university in Sydney but after deciding that further study was not for him, he picked up his life and went to London before eventually settling again in Australia. 

In this episode, Bates will share the travelling stories that shaped his worldview, including exploring the beauty of countries such as India and Egypt. As well as this, learn how to find success without a university degree, and a common investing mistake involving supply and demand issues.
