The focus of this booklet is around insurance, health and wellness. I have written it as a story and it is not full of technical information related to insurance and medical aid. I taught Andrew when he was nine years old. He now owns his own insurance business and also promotes Discovery medical aid. He planted an idea in my mind and so I decided to write this booklet. Most people cover their material possessions, but far fewer people cover their lives. Every second a person dies. It is actually more than this, as about 150 000 people die every day. I wonder how many of these people have life cover?
After the introduction, I share stories around covering lives and material possessions. The one story is about my Father during the war and the other is about the massive fire at Woodridge College. The third focus is around retirement planning. I turn 64 years old in two days-time, but I am not retired. I moved from the bank, to university, to teaching and then into the corporate world. In 1995 I started my own consulting business. Due to the fact that I moved around a lot, I have not been able to build up a sufficient retirement fund. Many people who retire battle financially. An insufficient capital sum and inflation are two of the reasons why people struggle. Two international rugby stars, Joost and Jonah, died from dreaded diseases. Millions of people are covered for cancer and other dreaded diseases. The last part of the booklet looks at health and wellness. Medical aid is a massive industry and the wellness business is also booming.
I hope that you decide to invest in this booklet. I feel certain that you will find it meaningful, helpful and interesting. Do your best to cover yourself as best as you can and take good care of yourself.
