Like everyone else, I have experienced the many ups and downs that life throws our way. But by reading, reflecting and then applying what I’ve learned those downs have become shorter and less frequent and the ups have become longer and more consistent. This has given me the foundation to build to greater things. I’ve realized that this is a life-long journey that gets better every day I’m alive. More inspiring, more exciting and more fulfilling. The good thing is that the more I learn, the less I realize I know. That means I’ll never run out of ways to be better today than I was yesterday. Visit: wednesdayswithchad.com/

Much of what Helen (aka Avalon) has achieved since moving to New Zealand could be summed up with;“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be”. She gets a buzz out of helping people with their money questions and trying to fathom how New Zealand Immigration actually works, although she is neither licensed, certified or certifiable in either subject. After drinking copious amounts of coffee, and spending way too much time on internet forums, she took up writing a book. While the book was being written, she also managed to start a career in property investment. With a slightly odd sense of humour – which occasionally gets her into trouble – and an opinion or two – which gets her into LOTS of trouble, her latest writings and ramblings can be found at Avalon’s Blog - www.avalonsguide.com
