The ‘Big Rocks’ Story

October 27, 2014 | David Solomon

What ingredients is your 'jar of life' filled to the brim with? The choice is yours!

In my last blog I referred to ‘Big Rocks’. I love this story for what it teaches us about focus and priorities – so necessary for all of us with such busy lives and so many competing priorities! A philosophy professor came to his class carrying 5 items – a large, empty mayonnaise jar, 3 […]



What Does PERFECT Mean to You?

October 6, 2014 | Janet Culpitt

What happens when you build your financial plans on the shifting sands instead of a solid foundation?

Are you ready to make smart decisions about money? Do you care about your family? Do you care about the future? Are you motivated to take some action? Do you want some direction?

Ring your insurance broker TODAY and make sure that your business insurance policy does include Tax Audit protection.

I’ve long been an advocate for very thorough planning – especially contingency planning. I think it stems from my time in the army (a long time ago) where I learnt that “Prior Preparation and Planning Prevents Poor Performance”.

So much has already been written about goals and planning, do we really need yet another tool / approach? Well yes, because most of them miss the most important element!
