Dreams for your future

What are your dreams for your future?

Unlike me at her age, my daughter is not really a dreamer for the future if I ask her. She is very much about the here and now and even though a part of me wants to hear her talk about her dream job (knowing that it will change), I actually like the independence that she shows in not being under pressure to talk about growing up.

As a child, one of my dreams was to work in Africa saving animals, partly influenced by watching the Diane Fossey story in Gorillas in the Mist and others like it. Back then, before the days of social media, if you wanted to help a cause, you went out and got involved, you couldn’t make a difference in the world via facebook and perhaps you still can’t. I still hold on to that dream a little, perhaps one day I might go to Africa for a time when my daughter no longer needs me quite as much and offer my services to an animal charity.

Our Dreams May Have Changed

Our dreams may have changed since we were little as our responsibilities have grown, what’s the dream that gives you the reason to get up, work hard and do what you need to do in your career or for your loved ones every day?

  • Retire early?
  • Get a better work/life balance?
  • See more of the world?
  • Spend more time with or caring for your loved ones?
  • Buy that holiday home or move abroad?

Is this just a dream or are you making the plans that you need now to help this to become a reality?

Saving for The Future

When we are in our 20’s or 30’s it can be easy to not look too far into the future while we are busy focusing on the financial demands of the here and now, juggling work and family life and the additional living costs at this time. For many, this is the reality, well into our 40’s with big mortgages and low disposable incomes. Saving for the future seems impossible. In our 50’s, some have managed to get to point when we can start seriously planning for our future though the task ahead of them to achieve that dream can seem quite daunting at that time.

Savvy Choices with Your Spending & Borrowing

Whatever stage of life you are at, savvy choices with your spending & borrowing can help you to make your dreams a reality sooner than you think. Planning for your future in other ways such as protecting your income and family, can help you to cope better with the curve balls that life may throw at you. It’s not too late to start. We want our clients to have fun, be happy and spend quality time with loved ones with the peace of mind in knowing that your finances are in order, you have a financial plan for the future and your family will be provided for during some of the more difficult life events that can happen. If you know or think you need help in all or any of these areas to make your financial future more certain, please get in touch with me or your local Evolution for Women Adviser and see how we can help you.


What is blogging now 2015

What is blogging in 2015

Have you ever wondered why people blog and when do they get the time? More so what on earth do they say?
Well there are many reasons that you should blog and one of the key ones is that “off site” optimisation makes up for 50% of your websites ranking in the search engines. If you still need help with any of these terms you may wish to consider my latest training course for 2015, Search Engine Optimisation for Beginners.
So what does that exactly mean?
Well google has its algorithm (the code it uses to search the internet) and part of that code says, “hey spiders, crawlers or robots (you pick which one you like) go check out this site and see what optimisation it has done online in its actual site, and THEN go spend the other 50% of you time checking out what it does off line! Now if you don’t do any social media or any blogging then your site only has a 50% chance of getting a good ranking. So if that’s the case what can you blog about and how do you find time to do it?

Finding time to blog

Finding time to blog is one of the hardest things for a business owner, especially if you have no idea what to write or when to write it. then again that is not true, if you were given 10 minutes with a potential customer, or even 5 minutes, you would most certainly use over 200 words to tell them all about you and your business. So it shouldn’t be that difficult?! But if you are still thinking nope can’t think of anything to write, then consider using other peoples work as inspiration.
Here is one example that I came across which made me laugh and all of a sudden so many more blogs were coming to my mind that I could write for other clients. See if anything springs to mind for you.
