Why is it important to use an Insurance Adviser?


Often a contentious issue with ‘having insurance’ being a need rather than a want and with banks, insurance companies and the internet all vying for your business – not to mention some supermarkets and other industries getting in on the act. This will inevitably lead to confusion, a lack of good advice and weak products. More often than not I come across potential clients who have little or no idea what kinds of insurance are available to them or how they work – and all too often who have insurance which they do not understand and their monthly direct debit being [...]

To Make A Claim or Not To Make A Claim


When is an incident a claim, or when is it not a claim – that is the question... In my role as an insurance adviser, it is very common to meet people who have had an event that could lead to a claim and payout on their insurance cover – but who have never claimed as they were not sure or did not know what their cover actually provided. Having insurance is one thing – but making it work for you and actually being able to make a claim is something completely different. A number of years ago I bought an [...]

Flight of A Life Time


Feb 29th, a leap year day, and I was booked on a helicopter ride from the beautiful seaside village Leigh one hour north of Auckland. Leigh has been our holiday home for a long time and this year we had decided to move here permanently. Although we had been coming to the area for over 40 years there was one thing I had never done and that was to take a helicopter flight over the beautiful coastal area of Leigh Harbour and the bay of Big Omaha. It was 3:25pm in the afternoon, school was just coming out and from my [...]

There’s No Such Thing As A Wrong Decision


I cannot claim all of this as my own – I received an email today and it spoke to me – very loudly! And started me thinking about all of those things we want to do – and think about and prevaricate about forever and just never end up making a decision on! ‘I want to lose weight’, ‘I want to get fit’, ‘I want to buy a new car’, ‘I want to move house’, ‘I want a new job’... The list is pretty much endless really. And how many of us actually follow up on the thought or idea, make [...]

Tune up, Tone up… Or simply Turn Up!


New Year’s resolutions often end up being forgotten within the first couple of weeks - or not even planned in the first place. Has that ever happened to you? We know that one of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to get fit and/or to lose weight. Great intentions... But how do you get started? That is really the $64 million dollar question. Often we make it way too difficult for ourselves and try to do everything all at once - and end up in pain, starving hungry, bored with eating the same thing day after day and then we [...]

Are you getting enough Iron?


We all want to look and feel our best – especially as spring is just around the corner.  We want those sexy curves, toned and tight butt and nicely defined arms.  We look in the mirror every day and may often think ‘I don’t like this about that’ or ‘I am unhappy with that aspect of my body’.  We torture ourselves and think how hard it is to have a toned body, or fit those yummy skinny jeans in the wardrobe, or how we are going to look in that super new outfit we have bought for some special occasion.  [...]
