Be Empowered – Financially!

April 21, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Financial empowerment

“Financial Empowerment”. What does this mean to you? Financial security? Financial literacy? Feeling ‘in control’ of your money and your financial or business results? Feeling positive and optimistic about your ability to generate money and to be in a comfortable position financially? Yes, it means all of these things. But do you really feel this […]

When opting to start your own business online networking is just as valuable as face to face networking.

How to Achieve Your Best – Part 1

January 29, 2015 | David Solomon

Success and freedom could be yours by just letting go of the things that no longer serve you or your business.

Achieving your best is a personal thing. In the same way that success for you really should be defined by your lifestyle, family, financial and other goals – rather than what society says success “should” be – being “your best” works the same way. This also applies whether we are considering being your best in […]

January 16, 2015 | Kate Fairley

Insurance what is covered

It’s called your Sum Insured. The dollar figure you give to your insurance company so they can work out how much to charge you. But how do you choose the number to give them? You only know about flowers, or computers, or goal setting… you don’t know anything about insurance or time to read all […]
