Its a NZ tradition for parents to wave good bye to their children as they head off on their OE but have you considered the cost if the worst case scenario happened? This is exactly why we advise parents to put a small amount of Life Insurance on their children before they leave the country. It is not to replace Travel Insurance but it gives you a cash back up to cover additional costs.
Our clients come from many backgrounds and occupations. These are some of our long term clients who have proved that age is no barrier to a successful business.
WESTPAC SUPREME FRANCHISEES OF THE YEAR
Winner – Judi & Earl McWhirter,
Judi & Earl McWhirter - the couple from Ohaupo have been named 2017 Westpac Supreme Franchisees of the YearThe 2017 Supreme Franchisees of the Year, Judi and Earl McWhirter, are living proof that there’s no perfect age at which to start your own business as long as you choose the right franchise to go with.
The proud grandparents had little business experience before joining Just Cabins. Judi (64) has a PhD in Statistics and spent much of her working life as an academic at Waikato University, while Earl (68) is a retired teacher. After running a bed and breakfast, the couple took on the local Just Cabins franchise nine years ago and have since achieved considerable success, winning the company’s internal award for exceptional business growth in 2016.
The semi-passive income offered by the Just Cabins franchise has enabled the couple to live their dream. Judi and Earl, who have been married for 45 years, told the Franchise Awards judges that their personal drivers are ‘spending more time together and travelling the country.’ The judges reported that, ‘Essentially, they are growing the business to provide for this lifestyle and following a robust and successful franchise system that embraces a clear vision, key processes and business planning.’

"SGA assisted us with getting fast pre-approval for our son's recent urgent dental work. I always feel like SGA has my best interest in mind and that they are a true advocate of their clients when communicating with insurance companies. I don't hesitate to recommend SGA because I know they will take care of my friends and family 100%" Ian, Browns Bay

By 2020 more people will suffer from a mental health illness than a heart attack. As we speed along on our own treadmills we have lost the art of caring about others.
When is the last time you asked your family, friends, neighbours how they are doing? Can you help with anything or do they just need a coffee and a chat?
This week is Mental Health Awareness week and we challenge you to ask someone how they are doing and to really listen to their answer. Your question may save someones life.

We often have clients tell us that they had to take out insurance with the bank or they can't have the lower interest rate on their mortgage. The bank insurance person doesn't tell the client what benefits they are losing by changing their insurance because they don't know and don't compare the policies. Clients can't be expected to understand the differences in the insurance products, that's our job to educate them but this is not the case if you go to the bank.
