The Importance Of Chewing.


It is important to eat each and every meal in such a way that you are left feeling satisfied - not hungry and not too full.  One way of doing this is by eating your food slower and chewing your food longer.…

Brand Marketers Are Missing Out

I have always found impressive individuals selling sponsorship, the level of knowledge I find usually greatly impresses me.

Certainly there are a percentage of people selling sponsorship in a way that has turned off brand marketers so much that they sometimes will pay tens of thousands of dollars per year on software and/or agencies to avoid talking to them. The reality is however, there are many smart people with good ideas and value to…

Networking in Surrey News – week beginning 28 March 2011

Moving House?...that's for young people

The assumption is often made that when people reach retirement age, if they are to move home it will be to downsize to a smaller and typically lower value property.

For many homeowners in later life moving home is a lifestyle choice, for example moving nearer to relatives or to a bungalow near the sea. Often this involves moving to a more expensive property.

Many would…

As economic circumstances worsen, don't get bogged down

It's clear that in these troubled times, people are getting more and more concerned about their own finances.  Understandably so.  We may be out of a recession at the moment but there's the possibility that one false move will put us back into a double-dip recession without a moment's warning.  


New survey results have been released:…

Oh dear! The news is just one catastrophe after another at the moment...

but let's not allow ‘compassion fatigue’ to stop us thanking our lucky stars we aren’t in Libya, Japan or any of the world’s other disaster zones right now. Perhaps feeling sorry for all those innocent people having their lives destroyed by events beyond their control may just stop us feeling…

"...it has taken away the worry."

Older homeowners are turning to the wealth tied up in their property to help them make ends meet. Growing numbers are releasing equity from their homes to pay off loans and credit card debts, or even clear mortgages they are carrying into retirement. 

Bridgewater Equity Release, a specialist in home reversions, says that 43 per cent of…

Easter School Holidays and Working Mums

The BBC ran a very telling story today. During April/May with bank holidays, a royal wedding and inset days, in some areas there are only 6 school days over a 30 day period.

I have been working with clients who, as working mums, are finding it really hard to evaluate the benefits of going out to work in order to try and balance the books.

As a hypothetical…

In a survey of more than 1,500 UK homeowners, 25% believe current interest rates are either higher or the same than they have been in the past or simply don’t know.

Base Rate to be at 1% by the Summer ? Ask Mr Bean...

Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has forecast that the Bank of England will increase base rate to 1% by the summer, hitting nine out of ten mortgage borrowers.

Its research suggests that far more households are now exposed to rate hikes, estimating 90% of all mortgages in the UK are variable rates, up from 60% in 2007, and well beyond the FSA's estimate of 68%. LGIM warn that…

Networking in Surrey News – week beginning 7 March 2011

Yippee! It’s Shrove (Pancake) Tuesday and I’ll even be missing tonight’s pub quiz to indulge with the ‘rellies’.  Bacon and maple syrup is my favourite topping, closely followed by smoked salmon and crème fraîche, with ice cream and chocolate syrup bringing up the rear. Apparently, I’m giving up beer for Lent :0(

On Monday morning we reached our milestone target of 1,000…

Lenders' insurance products are up to 50% over priced

Mortgage applicants who take the life insurance deal offered to them by their mortgage lender could be paying 50% more than they need.

Research has found that life insurance and mortgage protection products being sold by the country’s biggest mortgage lenders do not always offer the best value. In some cases, the research definitely points the finger at branch based advisers of pushing customers towards taking even more expensive options.

Using one typical…
