Reviews and feedback for My Life Pack Personal Organiser

It's always lovely to get feedback from customers who have bought a copy of our personal organiser either for themselves or for a gift for a loved one or a friend.
This year we were also delighted to receive our first review from a top blogger! The lovely lady in question is writer, business owner and mum of six, Fiona Cambouropoulos; who certainly knows what is needed to juggle all aspects of family and business life. Fiona’s blogging brilliance reached new heights in 2013, when her blog, Coombe Mill, made number 3 in the Top 20 Parent Blogs of 2013 on Tots 100. Here are some of Fiona’s thoughts on My Life Pack and you can choose to read the full review on Fiona's blog

“This is a book that you fill in to make your own reference centre with all the important things in your life. It is huge and leaves no stone uncovered.” “Sit back in the knowledge that never again will you wonder what a password is, when those important birthdays are or who and where the details of your will are held should anything untoward happen.” “This is the perfect way to feel you are really de-cluttering your life with an easy way to manage your finances, your home, your family and your work all in one comprehensive book.”

Filling out My Life Pack

“A Perfect Present”

“My Life Pack would make a thoughtful and imaginative yet practical present for a special occasion. A wedding, anniversary, house move, baby shower for friends or family or a retirement present strike me as excellent opportunities.”

1 Dec 2014: Grab your 9xTable Briefing Document here

Categories: Business , Working Life , MLP Tips

A 9xTable session is a simple, effective way to kick off your marketing in 2015
Digital marketing 9xTableAre you already using social media platforms to share information about your business?
Are you a micro business i.e. your business is you and between 0 to 9 employees anywhere in the UK?
Do you want to get off to a flying start in 2015?

Yes to all 3? Then you can make good use of our idea for proactive digital marketing sessions called 9xTable yourself. Or  if you are a larger business (i.e. 10 or more employees) you could help your micro business contacts to do so. Here is the access to the briefing document on "How to run and benefit from a 9xTable session"

Overview of a 9xTABLE session
I've made it flexible so that you can host a session around your kitchen table or your office desk or at a venue if you wish. You need your laptop or tablet and your pre-prepared social media marketing messages that you would like more people to see. And work with between 3 and 9 other micro businesses proactively sharing your marketing material for 9 minutes across various social media platforms. You repeat the 9 minute rounds for the number of people sat around your 9xTable. Thus increasing your reach and improving your KPI's. You can charge for your sessions or not. It's your choice.
I just provide you with the "How to" briefing and a free social media marketing template if you let me know where you session is taking place by listing it on Eventbrite. If I know where you are I may be able to get you some additional publicity for your business. The flexibility of the timing of the sessions and numbers is to help micro business owners as they are juggling business and family life and often the only person or the key person in their business.
Why have I called the sessions 9xTable? On Micro Business Matters Day people are being requested to spend 9 minutes promoting micro businesses. My idea gets micro businesses helping each other for 9 minutes per round whilst helping raise their own profile at the same time.

28 Nov 2014:7 benefits of taking part in a 9xTable

Categories: Business , Working Life , MLP Tips , Personal Organiser

My idea of 9xTABLE© is intended to

9xTable1 help micro businesses help themselves to raise their own social media profile across various platforms
2 and at the same time raise the profile of other micro businesses in their area. 
3 plus participants will have spent some time thinking about what marketing messages they wanted to share - - and what KPI's to increase in 2015 in preparation for the day ( So plan, take action and measure results)
Through my 9xTable idea I can facilitate micro business participation in promoting themselves 
4 by providing them with free guidelines of what is a 9xTABLE© is 
5 show them what they need to do to take part
6 plus provide a FREE marketing template to facilitate preparation of marketing messages (in this workbook)
7 Take advantage of the growing social media and tradtional media attention for Micro Business Matters Day 9 Jan 2015

9xTABLE© is a 2 hour business growth meeting 9 Jan 2015 where you meet around a table with other micro business owners BUT

1 the activity during the meeting is mainly online.
2 it is focussed on you proactively having your own business marketed and
3 whilst you are doing the same for the other participants.
4 It's a meeting where you get action there and then during the meeting and
5 you can measure the impact of the activity as well - depending on which KPI's you are measuring for your business
6 where you follow the guidelines on what activities to do so that you and the micro businesses that have gathered to support each other so that all benefit.
7 you learn more about the micro business owners around the table, and thier businesses and you all become "walking business cards" for each other
A 9xTable can happen anywhere you want or use technology it's up to you.
Some more tech savvy people may be hosting their 9xTable as a Google hangout or Skype meeting rather than working round a kitchen or office table.
Some people might find a free venue in their area where a bigger business is showing support for microbusinesses providing the facilities.
It's up to you where you hold your 9xTable or what time you hold it as long as its on the 9th January 2015.
So you might be able to join in one near you or best still chose to host your own and invite your micro business contacts.  

As I am a microbusiness myself I cannot organise your 9xTable for you only the ones where I act as host. But I do provide you
- with a place to communicate what you are doing  so you can find other micro businesses in your area if you wish to AND
- I send you the tools to apply yourself to take part in a 9xTABLE© in your area with my The How to" and marketing template that I will email FREE to interested parties.

I do get satisfaction when I can find a way of delivering win:win solutions and collaborations. Dont forget to come and follow me on Twitter and Facebook and check out my website link so that you can find out updates before the event. And if you arrange a 9xTable or get invited to one tweet me or facebook me the locations. Sessions that are already setting up to go live on 9th Jan are in these post code areas  so far 9xT SK5, 9xT M50, 9xT SK3, 9xT GL23, and the news is just getting out about this idea.
I look forward to connecting with you on social media and getting micro businesses more visibility on Micro Business Matters Day

19 Nov 2014: 9xTable Raise Your Business Profile on #MBMD 9 Jan 2015

Categories: Business , Working Life , MLP Tips

On Micro Business Matters Day attend a 9xTable proactive session
for YOUR opportunity to promote info about YOUR micro business! 

January 9th is the first, annual #MicroBizMattersDay of actions. Everyone is asked to give 9 minutes, day or night, to make life better for micro enterprise (0-9 employees) owners everywhere. You can read more about the day and its’ creators Tony Robinson OBE (@TonyRobinsonOBE) and Tina Boden (@MicroBizGirl) here. I am a micro business owner myself and my services and products get people organised for life and I also love helping get people organised for business. Having read about #MicroBizMattersDay I came up with an idea that will help micro businesses help themselves and get seen by a wider audience and I'd like you to pick up this idea and run with it for your own businesses in your area. I've made it easy to take part as I will send you the format and template for FREE

9xTable logo1I have called my idea 9xTABLE©

9xTable is where micro businesses; including one acting as a host; meet around a table on the 9th January 2015. They all spend 9 minutes on each business sat at the table carrying out practical social media marketing activity or performing actions that will help achieve business KPI’s. And using the digital marketing material that each business has pre-prepared for their business. I suggest 3 businesses to a maximum of ten people including the host sit around each 9xTable.
Please follow me on twitter at @mylifepack and on My Life Pack Facebook page to find news and updates
about 9xTABLE sessions around the UK. Not every business qualifies to take part in 9xTABLE though! There are just 2 very simple criteria to meet:-
1) Be a micro business owner –i.e. your business is just you or you have a maximum of 9 employees (#MicroBizMattersDay definition of a microbusiness  is 0-9 employees)
2) already be active on social media. And to get the most benefit: be active on a least 2 of the popular platforms e.g. Twitter and Facebook as they are the ones most commonly used by micro business.
As I haven't the functionality on this website to share the downloads for you to get the most benefit from 9xTABLE yourself so please Sign up here to receive :-
- a note listing 6 benefits for YOUR business if you take part in a 9xTABLE
- and information about taking part in or hosting a 9xTABLE in your area. As I like to help people get organised for business you will also receive
- the agenda and how to take part or run a 9xTABLE session
PLUS a FREE marketing content template for YOU to use for YOUR business at any time - not just on 9th Jan 2015
So you could simply get some of your current micro business buddies or network contacts around a table on 9th Jan 2015 to hold your own 9xTable proactive marketing session. What could be easier?
Note: If there is a micro business host and 9 micro businesses sat around a 9xTABLE each attendee will have received 81 minutes of social media marketing from the people in the room and given the same.

Just imagine the potential reach your business will have had by simply working with other people. And, what a great start to your marketing plans for 2015!

As Tony and his team are already promoting #MicroBizMattersDay on social media and in the press so that may provide additional opportunities for you to get your business mentioned in your local press if you host a 9xTABLE in your area.
Hosting a 9xTABLE is easy as I have already prepared the agenda and "how to" document and the marketing content templates for participants to use. You just need good free Wi-fi access and your desktop, laptops etc. etc. and your social media marketing material.  Please come and follow me on twitter at @mylifepack and on My Life Pack Facebook to see further news about 9xTABLE events in the UK ... and maybe beyond. Interest already received from various UK locations and Ireland. NB MOST sessions will be free to take part in and others might have a £10 fee for venue and refreshments.  YOU decide what is right for your 9xTABLE so I hope you pick up this ball and run with it for your own micro business or for your micro business contacts.  Let me know if you do :0) Thank you for reading this, Louise.

22 Oct 2014: The Modern Family: who does what around the house

Categories: Time , Household

The Modern Family: The truth about who does what around the house.

juggle lifeMumsnet asked 1000 working mothers who does what chores around the home. Has the evolution of the modern family really changed the stereotypes of the woman cooks and cleans, whereas man tackles the DIY? The answer? Women are still coming home to an evening of chores despite a century of social adaptation. We've shared some the results at this foot of this blog. So ... what if partners did take on more responsibility? 
Women feel they'd have more time to pursue other interests. 72% would spend more time enjoying family life or would use the time to pursue other interests. 54% would do more around the house/garden and 75% think they'd have more time for each other and feel more appreciated. Yet, despite these benefits 66% said they didn't want their partner to do more around the house, despite the unequal distribution of responsibilities!

Either because they’re comfortable with the current balance, because it suits them to do the chores themselves, or because they believe that their partner would not perform them to the requisite standard. Source: Mumsnet Survey. Mumsnet guest blogger, Ingrid Kirkegaard, responded to the survey results disagreeing with the overall consensus that women should be comfortable doing more around the house. Here is her closing statement:

“It's fascinating to me that 66% of the women Mumsnet asked about chores said they didn't want their partner to do more around the house, despite the unequal distribution of responsibilities, either because they’re comfortable with the current balance, or because it suits them to do the chores themselves, or because they believe that their partner would not perform them to the 'requisite standard'. Could it be the case that we know we're getting a rough deal, but that the idea that women are ‘better suited’ than men to domestic drudgery is still so pervasive that we'd rather not upset the status quo, salving ourselves with: ‘they’d do a rubbish job, anyway’?

What's the solution? Chores need to get done, after all. After years of trying to do it all, I've learnt that sharing is crucial. I've learnt that chores are in large part self-imposed, turned into an instrument of competition and made much worse by contemporary expectations from schools about ‘parental engagement’. I've also learnt that chores are as demeaning for women as they are for men, and that a bit of hard work doesn't hurt our children either. After all, they're part of the team too”.

So, how could My Life Pack® help you in your life? My Life Pack personal life organiser is ideal for sharing the load. As information on 10 key areas of life is gathered together in our easily referred to one stop manual making it much simpler to share and to delegate tasks saving users time, money and stress. Very useful when it comes to dealing with household admin, paying bills, remembering birthdays and anniversaries, arranging tradesmen, managing children's admin, pets and vehicles, your digital footprint. It even helps you help your parents/older relatives in Section 5 when they need more support from you as they get older. So a gift of time for you and your family as well as peace of mind as My Life Pack® helps you get organised for life so that you have more time to enjoy it. ( Read this about family chores and teamwork)

Who does what in your household? We would be interested to read your thoughts and comments on these findings.

Some results from the Mumsnet survey "Chores: the truth about who does what" are listed below.

The survey reported that women undertake an average of 10 hours of chores a week - twice as many as men ..... 

Cleaning, cooking and washing mostly falls to mothers For example:
• 71% of women are responsible for the weekly clean
• 77% are responsible for washing

15 Oct 2014: Do you value your time?

Categories: MLP Tips , Personal Organiser , Time

hourglass clockWe can often end up spending our time on all sorts of requests, tasks, favors and activities. It’s difficult to put an exact value on our time because we don’t consider what we’re losing when we’re asked for it. The best way to value an hour of your time is to work out your hourly rate at work.
You might also want to consider how much you’d be willing to pay for an extra hour of free time. What would be a reasonable rate for an hour of childcare, for example, or for somebody to clean your house?
Of course, there’s more to time than just money, but it’s important to acknowledge just how valuable your time actually is.
After working, commuting, eating, showering and sleeping, many full-time workers or busy parents have just two to three hours left of their day to spend on other chores as well as trying to find some time to do as they please. 
Once you've evaluated how you spend your time, you may want to make some changes. Such as:
- Look for an occupation you’ll love and do something you enjoy; instead of spending hours every week doing something you dislike.
- Put the phone down on call centres who only want “five minutes of your time”
- Think carefully before doing favors, are they really worth your time?
- Pick up a copy of My Life Pack®, a time-busting journal and a flexible way to keep track of ALL 10 areas of your life, keeping everything together in one organised place. This one-stop reference manual can help you find exactly what you need with speed and ease, saving you precious time!
- Stop participating in activities that take up lots of time with little reward or enjoyment.
- Avoid overspending and start saving, the more you spend, the more you’ll need to work.
- If you feel you do the majority of chores around the house - learn to delegate tasks to family members.  Even children can carry out some of age appropriate chores.

But don’t be afraid to spend a bit of money to save yourself time. For instance by delegating chores such as cleaning and gardening so that you have more time to spend with friends and family or on a hobby. 
Remember, your time is precious and priceless! Are you treating it that way?

1 Oct 2014: 7 More Motoring Money Savers

Categories: Finances , Vehicles

Checking tyre pressureHere at My Life Pack®, we’ve put together a list of things you can do to save yourself money on your motoring and mileage. Start saving today with these simple, quick and easy tips:

  1. Check your tyres regularly to ensure they’re not worn or under inflated – this will ensure maximum fuel efficiency.
  2. Declutter your car. You'd be surprised at how much unnecessary stuff people carry about in the boot! The lighter the car, the less effort, and therefore less fuel it will need to accelerate.
  3. Wind it up. The aerodynamics of your car can play an important part in saving fuel. Winding up the windows and removing roof racks will help reduce drag and boost fuel efficiency.
  4. Turn off the air con as often as you can and only use it in extreme circumstances.
  5. Don’t overfill your car with fuel, filling the tank to the top can add weight and will cause you to burn more fuel.
  6. Accelerate gradually and don’t over rev, putting more pressure on the pedal means more fuel flows, always try and stay under 3000 revs.
  7. Use Section 6 of My Life Pack®. to mange your vehicles. This money-saving segment lets you record, track and manage your vehicle information, keeping all your insurance, ownership and maintenance documents together in one organised place. It’s the most flexible way to store your transportation information, which can help you stay on track, plan ahead and save money. A memory aid so you never forget when your MOT or insurance is due for renewal. Handier than ever now paper tax discs will no longer be issued.

Quote from Laura & Andy (Users of My Life Pack® “At last! No more last minute panic wondering when the car needs a service or an MOT, or trying to recall the details of any incidents when renewing insurance.”

23 Sept 2014: Where there's a will there's a way!

Categories: Wills , Finances

According to the BBC more than two thirds of UK citizens don’t have a Will ! As also highlighted in this link to This is Money article. Below is an article written by Christine Thornley, partner and joint head of the Wills, Trusts and Probate team at Gorvins Solictors in Stockport, Cheshire that I have reproduced here with their permission. I hope that Rachel's article provides some food for thought as this pdf chart shows you how the government will distribute your assets if you pass away intestate - your family and loved ones may be excluded under these state rules. Wills are about expressing your wishes and helping your loved ones with future decisions and practical matters and having had to deal with the passing of my own parents the fact they had outlined their wishes made a stressful time easier to deal with - you don't have to be well off to leave a will and rising house vlaues in the UK mean that many more people will become liable to inheritance tax. Looking into making a will now is good timing as October is National Wills Month in the UK which you can read more about here.
willOver to Christine ....... " It’s easy to put off making a Will. Thinking about what will happen after you die isn’t exactly an appealing prospect and this might be why lots of people avoid the process. It is important to know when you should make a Will so you don’t end up dying intestate and leaving your loved ones in a tricky and sometimes vulnerable situation. People worry about visiting a Solicitor’s office. For many years we having been trying to shake off the old impression of fuddy duddiness and believe that clients now actually enjoy the experience which previously they thought to be depressing or dark.
Many people prefer to head for a firm of Solicitors as this comes with the reassurance of professionals who have undergone structured and well regulated training over many years (and mandatory training on an ongoing basis), as opposed to employing a Will Writer who offer cut price Wills but do not have the training or indeed experiences that a Solicitor may have had especially if they have worked in a Solicitors office as long as I have! A Will can be very effective in reducing inheritance tax and protecting blood line inheritance. Making a Will is about protecting your assets, not preparing for death. If you don’t make a Will your money and property will be distributed according to the Rules of Intestacy and this may not be entirely what you had hoped for, and it may have a detrimental effect on those that you leave behind.
Do you have a child with a learning disability or do you really want your son or daughter to inherit as young as 18 – aren’t they vulnerable at that age? Have you thought about the impact on your family when faced with the prospect of selling your house to pay for your Nursing Home fees?  Right or wrong the majority of families believe that the family home will be their inheritance but with the majority of the population living a lot longer this is not now the case. Contrary to what is assumed by the majority if you are married and die without a Will the surviving partner will not automatically inherit all your estate. If you are unmarried your partner will not automatically receive anything and the impact of inheritance tax can be greater for unmarried couples.
Wills can be advantageous for a variety of reasons such as inheritance tax mentioned earlier but financially speaking you may be facing concerns in how best to provide for your family and in some cases it is either impossible or undesirable to pass assets outright to a person with a disability or to your spouse if they have been diagnosed with Alzheimers or Parkinsons. If your child is mentally disabled they will be unable to make the relevant financial decisions themselves, as would someone suffering in old age with Alzheimers or Parkinsons. Likewise physically disabled children under 18 also require someone to make sensible financial decisions on their behalf.
Without proper planning and guidance you can cause problems for your vulnerable beneficiary as any inheritance could have a huge impact on the level of means tested benefits they receive. Your child could lose the right to benefits such as Housing Benefit or Income Support as they are only allowed a minimum capital sum of £6000. In addition, many vulnerable people are unable to manage their own finances particularly if they inherit a lump sum. This leaves them open to being taken advantage of, spending or giving away their inheritance rather than using it for their future. So, consider making a Will incorporating a Trust to help with Inheritance tax, protecting your family home , protecting any vulnerable beneficiary. Don’t put off making a will any longer, and when with your Solicitor ask them to explain about Lasting Powers of Attorney! 21 July 2014"
NB This Guardian article covers some new rules that come into force on 1st October 2014 so discussing your affairs with a knowledgeable, professional is even more important.

19 Sept 2014: Free Wills Month - Oct 2014

Categories: MLP Tips , Paperwork , Wills , Finances , Household

Free wills month logo

I've just spotted this item on the Martin Lewis Money Saving Expert website that may be of interest if you need to get your affairs in order and you live in the areas covered by the scheme in England or Wales. The link also includes useful information on why we should all make a will as people make assumptions about what happens if someone passes away without having made one.
Every March and October it's Free Wills Month. It offers - as the name suggests - free wills. But to get one you must be 55 or over, and it also tours the country. In October 2014, solicitors in 28 towns/cities & counties will take part: Birmingham, Bolton, Bournemouth, Bristol,  Chester, Cornwall, Derby, Exeter, Gloucester, Huddersfield, Ipswich, Kingston  Upon Hull, Lancaster, Leeds, Leicester, Lincolnshire, Milton Keynes, North  Wales, Norwich, Nottingham, Plymouth, Preston, Shropshire, Stockport,  Stoke-on-Trent, Swansea, Torquay and Wakefield. You need to enter your postcode during October on the Free Wills Month website. It'll  then come up with solicitors close to you who are taking part (if there are any). Just call one  to book your Free Wills appointment.

This is an opportunity for you to get a free will, drafted by a solicitor. Normally, you could  pay £150 or more (plus VAT!) for even the simplest will. The scheme covers simple wills - so if your affairs are complex, your solicitor is likely to ask you to pay a contribution to cover the extra time he or she spends writing your will but would advise you of this before they drafted a will for you. Charities back the scheme, so be prepared for your solicitor to ask you to consider making a bequest to your favourite charity in your will (leaving the charity something when you die). It's hoped that you do do this; as the charities are in effect paying for the will writing; but you're under no obligation to make a bequest.
