Celebrity Apprentice boss getting down to business

BALLINA had a visit yesterday from renowned businessman and Celebrity Apprentice Australia host Mark Bouris, with local fans gathering to meet the man himself.

Mr Bouris was at Yellow Brick Road Wealth Management's recently opened Ballina branch yesterday signing copies of his book What it Takes for local fans and business people, sharing a trick or two while he was at it.

Yellow Brick Road Wealth Management, of which Mr Bouris is executive chairman, opened its Ballina branch in River St just two weeks ago, branch director Campbell Korff explained.

Mr Korff said the team was very pleased to have a visit from Mr Bouris, who was on a visit to his Byron Bay home.

Enjoying the area (except for its latest bout of storms), Mr Bouris said he was happy that Yellow Brick Road now had a branch in Ballina - an area close to his heart and one he felt could benefit from his wealth management service.

Well known for founding Wizard Home Loans, and for starring as the host of Australia's version of The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice, there was no 'you're fired!' when he walked into the branch - instead he wished the team good luck

Sharing some pearls of wisdom with the gathered crowd, Mr Bouris said the importance of a good superannuation plan could not be underestimated. In fact, he said many people underestimated how much money they would need to retire.

He advised people to find a plan that worked for them and worked for their money.
