For this campaign I’ve been asked to blog about my experiences as an entrepreneur, what it’s been like to start a business and any advice I have to share with all of you.

THE AWETHU PROJECT

piece written on the 2nd November 2015 by  
I remember the moment when I decided to become an entrepreneur, it feels like it was just yesterday. What an incredible feeling and now when I look back I can easily tell that I was always meant to be an entrepreneur and the decision I made was the correct one. I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to economics and politics, but I listen to the radio, I read the news and I do my best to stay abreast. Ou...

During 2013, 5.3 million were taken out showing a decrease of 6%. Did you know that the gap between existing risk cover...

Last week I chatted to you all about longevity, how people are living longer and how that potentially effects us in terms of preserving our wealth and cover in the long run.

TRADING SHARES WITH EASY EQUITIES


Investing & Money
piece written on the 3rd October 2015 by  
I've blogged countless times on here about investing and trading. This morning I want to tell you about a relatively new trading platform that I've overlooked and I think it's worth blogging about. I've been trading with PSG Online for a number of years and although the fees are high, their educational resources make it worthwhile. With that being said, one thing that has always been a problem is that the fees make...

I read an incredibly interesting article this weekend about longevity and wanted to share some really interesting facts that I pulled from the article, facts that you probably didn't know: By 2055 there will be more people over the age of 60 than people under the age of 15.

INVESTIGATING INCOME PROTECTION


Investing & Money
piece written on the 10th September 2015 by  
Over the past several weeks I've been working with Momentum to create awareness about critical illness cover and income protection. I've even written about the difference between them and this week I would like to cover income protection a little bit more because it's something that I personally buy into. I've been told that there are two primary reasons why people don't protect their income, the first is that it'...
