Weekends be like
We could only cover so much in part one, so we are back with more.... and we are going deep! Now that we know the basics of investing, we are ready for part 2 (drum roll please). Rebecca Tunstall from Rathbone's and others expert speakers from @wealthsimple will be breaking down: Recap on why we need to invest. Risk and why it’s important. How do you go about investing? What are the different types of investment? Practical tips on where to start. We will also be joined by Michelle from Wealthsimple, who will be teaching us about their very easy to use investing platform! All tickets include a glass of bubbles, canapes and great women to chat with! Buy via link or hit me up for a discount!
I recently read this small section from #Awakethegiantwithin by @tonyrobbins and see how relevant it is when we think about our finances and our money decisions. "Too many of us don’t make the majority of our decisions consciously… in so doing, we pay a major price. In fact, most people live what I call ‘The Niagara Syndrome’. I believe that life is like a river, and that most people jump on the river of life without ever really deciding where they want to end up. So, in a short period of time, they get caught up in the current: current events, current fears, current challenges. When they come to forks in the river, they don’t consciously decide where they want to go, or which is the right direction for them. They merely ‘go with the flow’. They become a part of the mass of people who are directed by the environment instead of by their own values. As a result, they feel out of control. They remain in this unconscious state until one day the sound of the raging water awakens them, and they discover that they’re five feet from Niagara Falls in a boat with no oars. At this point, they say, ‘Oh shoot!’. But by then it’s too late. They’re going to take a fall." And sometimes this is a financial fall! 📸 @secret_cinema

Question: when you get paid (weekly or monthly) how do you manage your bank accounts? Do you have seperate accounts, maybe use the @barefoot_investor strategy of smile, splurge and fire extinguisher, do you have direct debts set up moving money automatically or do you have a different system. When you have everything coming in and out of the one account it can make managing money a lot harder - we love our money guru @strong_nat method of working out your fixed and variable costs and then creating direct debts so you only ever have what you should be spending that week in your card account! Need help budgeting? Let us know and we will invite you to our next course coming soon! Xxx
Because it's Wednesday

What are you going to give this Christmas?
Happy Friday! Stay strong during #blackfriday
Okay we get it - every store in the whole world is having a #blackfriday2018 sale! The UK is estimated to spend on £7 billion on Black Friday this year - so our hottest tip is (🥁 roll please). No matter how good the deal is, it's not saving money if it's something you don't need. Especially if you're buying it with money you don't have (aka putting it on credit card). Globally we buy around 80 billions dollars worth of clothing a year and waste millions of tons of e-waste (electronic waste). Join the challenge and make your pledge #buyersremorse #mininalistlife #doyoureallyneedthat #landfill #minialism #blackfriday
Yes but can you carry it then?
Had a great time talking money with the Women's Leadership Network at Kings College tonight!
