I live in the South West of England here on the beautiful North coast of Cornwall. I have lived here with my husband Dave for 4 years now and we both feel that we have found our 'home'. We love being creative and have a shared love of photography, arts and craft. Our latest passion is printmaking in its many guises including darkroom processes but at the moment we are learning the craft of Lino & Intaglio printing.
I was born in Surrey and spent my childhood from the age of 8 in Hampshire. I was to live and work, get married, have children, move to Scotland, move back again,get divorced, change career, get remarried before eventually settling in this lovely part of the world.
I am a Sales Leader & Rep. with Avon as I believe it is the way to go with earning a residual income (my retirement fund) and building a business that continues to pays you. It's a bit like a songwriters, musicians and writers receiving royalties for life. It is flexible and you decide how much you do and when to fit it in a busy schedule. I am here to help you whether you just want to do a little bit of retail around where you live or if you want to go for it and grow a fantastic business helping other people do the same. It is also an enjoyable way to get out and about in your local community, be self-employed and being in control of your income.
When Dave & I first got together it was important to earn a full-time income and pay a mortgage. We were in our mid forties and wanted to work for the next 10-15 years to build up our retirement fund.
As we all know that nothing ever goes to plan and we found ourselves still needing to work and generate incomes to be secure. Anyone reading this who is of a similar age will appreciate that as a woman born in the 1950's we have been affected by the increase in the State Pension age. There are campaigns that have been set up to try and fight against the decision and have it reversed or some sort of compromise can be had. My feelings are that as a woman growing up and starting their first job in the 1970's it was a whole different world back then and that the State Pension Age should be staggered to have a transitional period. In my case, and for most other women of my age we had not received notification until it was too late in my working life to be able to do enough about it.
The answer I am discovering, albeit late in life, is to find something that will earn you an income for your retirement. 'If it's got to be then it's up to me!'
With the ever increasing worry about the rise in pension ages it concerns me that it is never too early to start planning your own financial future. I see my friends in their 20's and 30's and wonder what pension provision will be available when they wish to retire.
