Should you be paying these fees?

Should you be paying these fees?

As I work with clients throughout Europe it has been incredible to note that since July 2015 SEPA came into effect and still there are banks that are trying to charge clients fees for international (European) transfers!

SEPA (The Single Euro Payments Area) is a payment-integration initiative by the European Union for the simplification of bank transfers denominated in Euros. As at July 2015, SEPA consists of the 28 member states of the European Union, the four member states of the European Free Trade Association (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland), Andorra, Monaco and San Marino.

Is it time?

Is it time?

Time, its the only thing there is never enough of and not something anyone can give you, nor is it something you can get back when it is gone!

It's that time of year when we think of the time gone by and make ourselves promises of what the year ahead will bring and truly it is more important than we think.  Time is our most important asset next to health, well without health time changes our perspective, either we know we don't have enough of it left or we feel each moment painfully.  You may disagree with that statement and say money is more important, I can guarantee many dead rich people will disagree with you!
