Life in your 50s – how to deal with it!

Image
Trauma - and how mature adults deal with it By  Seth Emmanuel Experiences and perspectives on life - love and marriage, divorce, politics, cancer, and other incredibly fascinating topics. Have you ever wondered why the younger generations make so many mistakes in life? The logical conclusion is that they haven’t gained the wisdom and experiences of more mature adults. When we reach middle-age we have the benefit of hindsight, acquired patience and thoughtfulness. We make decisions and approach life’s traumas in a non-emotional, considered way and we are all too well aware of the consequences of bad decisions. We are too seasoned to repeat the mistakes of youth. Wrong! Regardless of age, it seems we approach traumas in the same irrational and emotional state of our youth. The author also offers insights to those “in the middle” on how to deal with the traumas of life.

Me and My Shadow "An immensely gripping read"

Image
A review by Fiona Burkinshaw ( Personal Trainer and fitness coach) "There are many words to describe how I feel after reading Me and My Shadow, intrigued, shocked, emotional, inspired, but most of all proud. I am proud that I know Ray, and honoured that he turns up week in week out to my fitness classes. For the advice, his knowledge, and the time he has given me over the past few years. His enthusiasm to his sport is mind blowing, and whatever Ray puts his mind to, he achieves it with flying colours. From being this cocky ginger haired, Yorkshire lad who just wanted to “have a go at boxing”, to his recent 100km Sahara Desert race, Ray has, and always gives 110%. He is an absolute credit to anyone who knows him. This book gives a great insight into the “down to earth” Ray (we thought we knew)! Some of the stories are very funny, as well as inspirational. An immensely gripping read, a must buy. Thanks for everything Ray." Paperback | Waterstones | Amazon UK Ebook

"An insightful book about reading"

Image
A review by Grahame Howard*, author of the popular children's series - 'The Wishing Book' " If you are not a reader, you soon will be after reading this very good book from Yomi Akinpelu. Yomi has the knack in being able to inspire and encourage reading of books. In fact, she brings a whole new meaning to why we should read and what we can receive from spending time within pages of well written books, whether fiction or non-fiction. For myself, I like to ‘get lost’ in a good fictional read and perhaps become the hero. I also have received much knowledge from studying good texts in order to gain qualifications. All of this has been reinforced by reading Yomi’s title. This is a book that will bring you insight into why we read and what we can get from this. It will also bring encouragement to dust that book off and make time to read it. It will bring you immense pleasure as you just allow Yomi to show you the way to enjoy reading.

‘Mammograms Saves Lives’ featured on the Breast Cancer Site. The story: "I was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2011.

I felt well, had no symptoms, have never smoked, eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly, so how the hell did I get this? There was no explanation, it can happen to anyone!

The real rip-off culture? Part One

An article covering the story of campaigner Steve Perry , author of  ' When Payday Loans Go Wrong' . By: Chris Skinner Source: Financial Services Club Blog Date: August 05, 2011 " Further to my write-up about Wonga the other day, I have been contacted by author and campaigner Steve Perry, who has been on the wrong side of the payday loans industry. Now don’t get me wrong. I am NOT against payday loans firms or their operations (I actually admire Wonga's technology ops). I AM against the uncapped interest these firms charge on their vulnerable customers. However, this also needs to be qualified in terms of who are 'vulnerable customers' and who actually charges 'rip-off' rates and how. For example, Wonga have also contacted me to put their side of the story and made clear that they do not target 'vulnerable' people with 'rip-off' rates.
