As 2017 draws to a close, this is an important time to reflect on what you have achieved to date, and start to think about what you would like to achieve moving forward in the new year.
In this month’s newsletter, we begin by focusing on saving tips to keep your spending in check over the holiday period. In our animation, we discuss the importance of tracking your spending, as this can sometimes get away from us when we are caught up in our daily lives. With our increasing use of digital technology and the internet, especially when it comes to emails and social media platforms, it may be time to consider the inclusion of your digital footprint within your estate plan. In a similar vein to above, it’s also important to protect your personal information in the digital space as cybercriminals are constantly attempting to obtain it for financial gain; we have put together some helpful information regarding this. Lastly, we leave you with a video in which Chris Hemsworth suggests travel and exploration in our very own backyard – this may be just the ticket to collecting some memorable experiences and recharging your battery over the holiday period so that you are refreshed and ready for the year ahead.
We wish you a happy and safe holiday period and look forward to seeing you in 2018.
