Shares & Investing

Being involved in the finance industry I often times get asked what shares I own and what my opinions are of certain companies. I decided to put my personal portfolio on the website for others to see and to reduce the amount of time I need to repeat myself.

The platform I prefer when it comes to investing is EasyEquities, it's FREE, very easy to use and offers South African's young and old the ability to learn and invest on the JSE.

Everything I know I learned from reading books since I was little and watching webinars online.

How to Invest: The Beginner's Guide

I authored a book on how to invest on the JSE and made it available for download - for free.

The aim of this book is to present in clear form the simple principles of investment, and to afford the reader a working knowledge of how to invest on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) using EasyEquities.co.za as their broker. This book also covers what retirement annuities are and how to buy them through Sygnia.co.za using their Robo-advisor. This book aims to be a kickstarter for young South Africans wanting to invest for their future.

Investments in the stock market may fall as well as rise and are not appropriate for investing for the short term. You may get back less than you invested. All investment carries risk and it is important you fully understand these risks and are willing to accept them. Past performance should not be seen as an indicator for future performance.

The internet is full of restrictions, censorship, privacy invasions, security breaches, and a host of unwanted entities trafficking in your personal data. Using a VPN is a great first step toward protecting your privacy online. Privacy is fundamental to a well-functioning society because it allows norms, ethics, and laws to be safely discussed and challenged. Without privacy, a free and open society can neither flourish nor exist.

Force all DNS traffic to go through Pi-hole using Mikrotik

The following mikrotik firewall rules will force all the clients on your local network like your Sony PlayStation and Google Chromecast to use your Pi-hole or your own local server as their primary DNS server, even if they have hard coded their own DNS servers we do this because many apps and devices do not use the offered DNS servers per DHCP, they are just that – an offer. Hardcoded DNS servers will still resolve and allow ads and tracking unless we use NAT rules that will redirect all DNS requests, no matter where they go, to the Pihole.
