Suffragettes, Mentors and Life Cover
What I’ve Been Reading
In ‘Tribe of Mentors’ Tim Ferriss, the best-selling author of ‘The 4-Hour Workweek’, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book―a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life. It is a great book to pick up and read in short bursts, and each short chapter rarely fails to give me a new idea.
What I’ve Been Watching
I was aware of a little of the history of the Suffragettes, but until watching ‘Suffragette’ the film, I hadn’t ever considered the multitude of sacrifices they made to gain the vote.
Inspired by their campaign, this captivating film’s story centres around a working wife and mother who comes to realise that she must fight for her rights at home and in the workplace. You can watch it on Amazon here.

Finance Theme I’ve Been Considering
Making sure our loved ones are ok when we’re gone may not be the most fun you can have with your money, but it is some of the most important money you will spend. When thinking about life cover, you hope you’ll never need it, but you also want to ensure those you care about would be ok if you weren’t here. As it isn’t a fun way of spending your money, and money you hope you are wasting, it is important to keep the cost to an absolute minimum. Three ways you can reduce the costs are:
- As a business owner, switch your personal cover to Relevant Life cover to get tax relief on your premiums
- Switch Term Assurance to Family Income Benefit, which pays out an income instead of capital, and thus is a cheaper way to cover things like school fees
- Review your mortgage protection every few years; as the sum assured declines with your mortgage, you can often get the same cover for a lower premium.
