Refirement Network :: May 2016


Dear Refirement Members

It has been a busy month and I seem to be focused on Pretoria this month. The thing I love about my work is that I get to visit different parts of our beautiful country and meet many interesting people. We had a wonderful dinner and function on the 11 th May at The Centurion Country Club and next week I will be a doing a discussion session with coaches. More about this in the newsletter.

I value your membership and would love you to join me on the social media platforms as well. We share articles and stories daily that can impact and educate. Under content on the website there is a link to all the different platforms.

Have a fabulous month and hope to see you soon at an event or be in touch if you want to help me put one together in your area of the country.

I have had an interesting month dealing with a policy from my mother’s estate. The reason I have written about my personal story is to help others to focus on their own estate and take ownership to ensure that all your things are documented and those who need to know what is going on are in the loop.
