Education and mindset are the vital ingredients in the recipe of success

Emilia Woodhouse

Have you heard of the term Automobile University?

On average, how many hours per week do you spend travelling to and from work in your car, on the train/bus or underground? According to an article in the Guardian newspaper posted in 2015, millions of people spend 2 hours or more commuting to work PER DAY.


2 hours per day commuting x 5 days per week = 10 hours per week

10 hours per week x 52 weeks = 520 hours per year

That’s 21.66 days a year that you could spend basically improving your knowledge base on investing or whatever you are passionate about and not having to make any extra time for it in your busy schedule. 


Take advantage of the time you have travelling listening to audio books. You’ll be surprised how much information you will get through.

Over the past 5 years I have spent many nights trawling through forums, reading books, watching YouTube videos and watching episodes of Homes Under The Hammer. Basically, just getting my hands on anything that will grow my investment knowledge. 

I have attended many investment type courses and I have realised that you don’t have to spend thousands of pounds on courses, most information is available free of charge (on the internet) or a few pounds/dollars on books, audio’s etc.

You can also become a member of (an Amazon company) where you pay a monthly premium and you can choose from over 200,000 books to download onto your mobile device.
