Simple question! If you could replace a person with a
program or device that doesn’t ask for time off, talk back and is just plain
simply cheaper over any time period, what would you do?
Business is Business, and when cases like this pop up the
answer is unfortunately quite simple.
There is a saying that Accounting is the language of
business, and at the bottom of all of the numbers expenses are always minimised

If you’re seen as an expense … watch out!
A lot of people have the dream of retiring early and being able to live their dream. But unfortunately for a lot of reasons this dream remains just that. A dream.

Dear Mum and Dad …
No not really, but that’s probably how I’d start it if this
was a letter to them.
This letter is to all parents, and to the children too,
