🧇 The Weekly Waffle - 1st December 2023 📅

Hello, Dear , 🌟

🍳 Ready for a Weekend Giggle? Let's spill the tea from our Academy of Life Planning Town Hall – The Friday Lunch Bunch. Grab a cuppa and let's wade through this together!

The Execution Sessions - 'The Stand & DELIVER Game Giver' 🎯

Pension Firms to Youngsters: 'Show Us More Money!' 💼

Legal & General’s latest spiel to the youth: Up those pension contributions for a dreamy retirement. Ignoring, of course, the trend of working into your 80s for kicks.

FCA Tightening the Noose on Small Financial Advice Firms 🤐

This week's gossip: FCA’s new ‘Polluter Pays’ rule. Small firms, brace yourselves; big fish swim free. Plus, FCA playing the strict teacher with small firms skirting complaints.

Vanity Awards: The Trophy Scam 🏆

Shocked at the shady winners? Turns out, it's pay-to-play in the trophy game. And oops, we might have been duped too.

The Game Plan: Love at Second Sight? ❤️‍🔥
