Which? agrees with Winston

Following on from my blog about what Winston Churchill had to say about people insuring themselves correctly, here is what Which? had to say - so again, don't take my word for it!

Which? has included life insurance and income protection (IP) on its list of the best financial products.

The consumer association previously listed IP as a preferred alternative to payment protection insurance when PPI made its worst financial products…

Fundraising, life & business

Today I visited the Queen Elizabeth Foundation for Disabled People in Leatherhead, the charity my sister and I are fundraising for by running 3 marathons in April.

It is a truly amazing place. The courses, help and support offered are brilliant but like most organisations of this kind, it is under-funded. It really bought home to me how…

A voice from history

Winston Churchill once said

If I had my way I would write the word ‘Insure‘ upon the door of every cottage and upon the blotting book of every public man, because I am convinced for sacrifices which are inconceivably small, families and estates can be protected against catastrophes which would otherwise smash them up forever. It is our duty to arrest the ghastly…

MPC member calls for immediate rate rise

Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) member Martin Weale has said interest rates must move now in order to contain inflation and prevent sharper, more damaging increases in the future.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Weale said raising base rate would protect the country from a "squeeze" later on and reduce consumers' inflation expectations back towards 2%.

Well I never . . .

Well I never . . . thought that it would end up in a TV ad. I am one of those guys with a face for radio but through one of my contacts I ended up in the Cape area of South Africa filming a TV commercial for Flora Pro-activ. The ad has been running since January on prime time TV and I had the opportunity of filming with 6 other 'real people-not actors' from Finland, Holland, belgium and France. Yep, the only UK person in the series that has gone out across Europe. The moral of this post is to… Continue

Networking in Surrey News - week beginning 14 February

Doh! Valentine’s Day – and I scored a typical ‘own goal’! Not only did I not take my long-suffering partner Angela out for a romantic candle-lit dinner, but I went out networking instead – and what’s more, to a fab dinner at the Woodlands Park Hotel with Trafford Enterprises. Talk about the St Valentine’s Day Massacre :0)  Even the dozen long-stemmed red roses I’d grabbed in Waitrose didn’t get me off the hook, so it looks like I’m going to be putting up…

Tipping for service?


A couple of days ago I went to Pizza Express for lunch, it’s my favourite place for pizza, but sadly not for service.  Trying to gain someone’s attention to come and take our order after we had been waiting for 10 minutes, I saw 5 staff and not one of them was looking towards the diners, so trying to gain eye contact was something of a challenge.…

King hints at a Base Rate rise before year end

The Telegraph reports today that the Governor of the Bank of England has given his clearest indication yet that the Base Rate will need to rise by up to three quarters of one percent before the end of the year.

Any rise in interest rates would end nearly two years of stability with record low interest rates of 0.5 per cent, hitting the majority of mortgage… Continue

Is your business branding letting you down?

  • Does your business card pack the right punch? 
  • Is your website and promotional literature conveying the right branded message?
  • Does it all say this message consistently?

I was at a networking event this evening and thankfully didn't see any horror business cards but I often see business cards and other marketing materials that let small businesses down.

When you start out it is tempting to get…

Women earners are not insuring themselves properly

Women are increasing their earning power but less likely than men to have financial protection should they suddenly be unable to work, according to new research.

The Women and Protection report released by Bright Grey found that women were taking more control of household finances but neglecting to protect themselves.

It found over half (53%) of working…

Interest rates to be 2.75% by 2012 - CBI

The CBI projects interest rates could hit 1.25% by the end of 2011, rising to 2.75% by Q4 2012 with inflation forcing the BoE to raise rates from their historic low in the Spring.
Private sector employer trade body, the Confederation of British Industry expects inflation to stay "stubbornly high" this year, partly due to the impact of higher VAT but also due to pressure from rising energy and commodity prices.However, it continues to predict, that the UK economy will grow in…

For owners of holiday lets - a short window of opportunity

If you own a furnished holiday let in the UK or the European  Economic Area you may be able to claim Capital Allowances (CAs)on your property from HMRC. However to get maximum benefit you must act quickly.

Most owners claim wear and tear on furnishings but many do not realise that they can claim on such features as electrics, plumbing, communications etc. Many claims can be quite lucrative. We are currently processing a…

Fixed rates at their highest level for six months

With interest rates at their lowest level, it is perhaps easy to forget about the rate we pay on our mortgage.

We all know that the Base Rate is going to increase, and it is an easy stance to take to say....oh, i will look to change to a fixed rate when the rates change.....but that , i am afraid is far too late.

It is reported…

Discovering your Purpose and Destiny

Do you find it difficult to see the wood for the trees in your future plans? Do you have a vague idea of what you would like to do with your life, but just can’t pin it down? Or do you have no idea at all, except that you are not hapy with what you are doing now?

Finding true purpose and destiny can be a difficult thing to do. It is a rare person who ‘just always knew’ what they wanted to do and went on and did it. Most of us don’t have that luxury. Strangely, the question often hits… Continue
