Bullying In The Workplace Is Real

This week is anti-bullying week, something I find very important.  Having three children, I am often taken back to the days at school where I was relentlessly bullied for years at primary, and despite a school move, my bully reappeared and attempted the same moves she had done before.  Although this time I had built up new friendships, I was determined not to let her ruin my new found happiness and friendships.  I responded to the abusive comments, instead of…

Why Make A Professionally Drafted Will?

A Will is one of the most important documents that you will make in your life.
