Continuing on from the previous episode, we’re discussing your biggest asset –  Your SELF!

If you’re happy to pay a fund manager a fee to manage a portfolio of assets that grow in value, why not spend money protecting your most valuable asset?

Jane Doe is talking with me in the studio about how fortunate she is. She’s not lucky, she’s fortunate – she made a rational choice when the options were presented to her, and now even though things didn’t go according to plan, she still has a choice.

In this episode you will hear about:

  • How does insurance actually work when you need it?
  • What types of personal insurance cover you for getting cancer?
  • Should you talk with an insurance adviser or can you just as easily do the job online?
  • Should I wait until I’m older to get insurance, or sort it out now?

If you would like to learn more about what was covered today and would like further information, I’d like to encourage you to reach out to a qualified insurance adviser in your area. If you would like an introduction to one, please reach out to me on
