There is nothing better than having a break away and getting away for a few days. Leaving behind all the chores, taking time out from the business and instead seeing new places – or sometimes returning to our favourites. Taking time out is something we really look forward to.
We know not everything is going to go 100% smoothly, life isn’t going to be perfect. But when you are on holiday/vacation, that is when you are a little more tolerant and make the most of the things that go really well. Continue reading →
A happy money marriage is a key ingredient to a happy marriage. We all want a live happily ever after with the person of our dreams. The intention is to spend the rest of our lives together. But the sad reality is that 70% – 80% of relationships that break up, blame money.

This does happen, unfortunately it features in the media all too often. But there is also another, maybe even darker type of financial abuse happening and that’s to intelligent women (~70% of financial abuse cases are women). They are left with nothing because their partners have financially abused them and left. Continue reading →

What I would like you to do is to write down (has to be on paper, not computer) a list of 20 things that are holding you back from achieving financial freedom.
Once you have done that, take a break, have a coffee/juice/water and walk around the block, or whatever it is you do to clear your head. Then come back and have another look at the list. Continue reading →
