Inspiration Bomb – Mirko Cugura

Inspiration Bomb Mirko Cugura (Financial Planning dude)

One day, after many years making my living as a musician, I realised I didn’t have life insurance. Or superannuation. Or a will. Or a separate bank account for my business.

These were not things I wanted to talk about, for fear of dying (of boredom).

However, enough was enough. I’m a grown up. I was clearly going to do this “creative thing” for life. The day of reckoning had come.

In stepped Mirko, the financial planner recommended by my accountant.

Mirko is ace, but we are two people whose worlds would not normally collide. He says his creative brain must be up in a jar on a shelf somewhere, which I don’t believe. And I don’t get that excited about numbers, except when I have to. Anyway, he’s here to give you his low-down on some of the stuff he believes artists need to know when it comes to managing money. Our assistant Georgia’s comment on this Bomb was: “What he said was way more interesting than I thought it would be”. She’s right; what he said is kind’ve funny and a little bit moving, actually.

Mirko’s organisation is called Innate Wealth (which he refers to as their “funky new name”) and they advise on around $500 million of assets. Yup. Today, he’s gonna share a few of his opinions with you. You can agree or disagree. The point is simply to prompt you to begin thinking about your business in ways that make sense, and help set you up in the long term.

He also tells us “How not to go to jail”, which is always handy to know.

To sweeten up the deal, please enjoy today’s Inspiration Bomb artist; Jes Egan of Paper Chap.

    What a winner Mirko, thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom. Certainly helps put things in perspective, and reinforces the idea that it’s not what you do….. it’s the way that you do it. Much appreciated.

    • Clare Bowditch

      Agreed! xo

    Finally got around to watching this and it was well worth it as always! Love how Mirko encouraged us to outsource those things that we don’t have the knowledge/expertise/skill base to do ourselves. It sounds obvious, but I can always use a friendly reminder that I don’t have to do/be good at everything! Thanks BHB x

  • Such efvvlacn are so tremendously impressive. They are very type. The only few wonderful thing about these products mainly because sometimes try to make my best feets flushed even tough it isn’t really incredibly hot,they usually are usually not meant to. Hamsters similar to efvvlacn likewise. They obscure with them. In addition, you should be very careful to never give up things,since the final items that links your wool felt with the exclusive frays comfortably.
