• Do you want to invest your hard-earned money, but don't know where to start?


    Shares for Beginners is the podcast for you.

  • Hi, I'm Phil Muscatello

    I interview industry experts so you'll learn what to do, what to ask and - ideally - how not to lose money

    I'm just like you:

    1.  I want to make money from the stock market
    2.  I find the terminology confusing
    3.  I want to be able to make informed decisions
    Let's learn together on Shares for Beginners 

    Even if you don't want to invest directly in the share market, it's important to know how investments work.

    By listening to this podcast you'll learn about:


    • What's going on in your superannuation fund
    • What questions to ask a financial adviser
    • Where to invest your hard-earneds
    • Thinking for the long term


    Because I'm not an expert, I ask the questions that others won't ask. My guests are always challenged to simplify and explain what is often confusing and full of impenetrable jargon.


    If you get a chance, pop in an join my Facebook Group to keep the conversation going and ask questions. How will I know if you don't tell me what you don't know?




    "I just wanted to let you know that your podcasts have been great, so inspiring and full of information. I have never invested but am very curious and each time I listen to your podcast it makes me very excited. Your guests that come on our very passionate knowledgeable guests!
    Keep what's your doing it's brilliant!" - Alice, a listener.


    I'm really enjoying the diverse guests and topics you're covering so far and I have binge listened to the pod a number of times!
    Keep up the great work, you're really taking out the fear people have in investing by breaking it down into digestible chunks.
    I love how you reel the guests back into explaining what they mean when they start to run off with their jargon haha


    Thanks for starting such a great and informative podcast. I'm telling all my friends and family about it!
    keep the good tips and smooth tunes flowing,
    Rob, another listener.

  • I know that there's plenty of information free on Youtube, Twitter, newsletters and investing blogs. But there's nothing better for cutting through the noise and clutter than a great book that will concentrate your mind and distill things of importance. Just check out how many books Bill Gates and Warren Buffett read to achieve their goals.
