Something I feel passionately about is people and companies doing the “right” thing.
Recently I have been hearing a lot about financial institutes and the underhand way in which more and more consumers are being drawn into spiralling debts.
We all seem to be living like there is no tomorrow and running up massive debts. Part of the challenge I feel is that none of us were ever taught how best to manage our money. Through my coaching work, this challenge of financial education keeps coming up again and again.
Though school equips us with grammar and algebra, very few of us embark on our adult lives fully conversant with how to make, save and invest money. It takes us many years and costly experiences to learn more, whilst most of us struggle on in financial ignorance.
Slowly but surely I think that is changing with the advent of the internet and the growth of some excellent web resources. We can now all learn about money management and research the options for how best to spend or save our cash.
One such online resource has been set up by Martin Lewis, journalist, broadcaster and researcher extraordinaire. From his best-selling books, TV shows and his website, he has helped literally millions of people save money in various ways.
Best of all is that his website is a free service which is completely impartial and not dictate by any financial institute with it’s own agenda. Martin is leading the fight back against rogue corporates who for too long have had it easy in milking money from their consumers.
I have used the service myself and not only have I made savings by finding the best utilities for my area, but also reclaimed some extravenous bank charges.
Check out Martin’s website today at www.moneysavingexpert.com – the website does what it says. Be sure to susbcribe to the free weekly newsletter.
