Greg Smith

Greg Smith has dedicated his life to helping Australians understand money. He has written 15 books on the subject, been a regular commentator on radio and TV. Now, after a long break he is back, with this book (and three others to come), and a return to his regular column in Australia’s biggest magazine – Woman’s Day plus a number of radio spots where he’s helping Australia’s heartland navigate these uncertain times.

 

His career has taken him from the Australian Stock Exchange to banking, to financial planning and a director of a listed ASX fintech. The major lesson he has learned throughout his career has been to never be afraid of asking - whether it be for a job, a discount or what may seem like a dumb question. Greg fears that too many people - If you don’t ask you don’t get.

 

Whether speaking on radio, at a conference or chatting over a coffee he’s constantly striving to help others improve their financial lives. His relaxed and down to earth style explains complex money issues in a way that cuts through the technical jargon and marketing hype. His personal mission at present is to assist Australians who may be struggling financially as a result of COVID-19 to
