Ever since we took those first shambling steps as toddlers, we’ve gone through numerous bumps, scrapes, trips and falls over the years. Most of the time we just dust ourselves off, pick ourselves up and laugh about it. Sometimes, however, life throws something more serious at us. Sometimes we are injured severely in ways that mean that we’re unable to work or do any of the things that bring us joy for weeks and even months. While some employers will grant us paid leave in which to convalesce, in an uncertain economy, lots of employers simply won’t be able to offer us this. In some cases, we may simply have to convalesce on unpaid leave, but for many, we may well be laid off work, with no job to come back to. Needless to say, this can be a troubling and upsetting time that challenges your sense of self-worth and makes you question yourself and your life in some very searching ways.

Here are some ways in which you can turn this potentially upsetting and unsettling time into the first step in a brand new journey…

Death is one such topic that no one likes to talk or even think about, particularly if it’s their own. But, if you do not take up the decision of making a Will to list the ways in which your entire wealth must be distributed when you are still alive, then you could possibly leave mountains of issues and hardships for your loved ones.

Perhaps, like others, you feel awed or terrified by the process it entails – or is it the expense that puts you off?

Despite all of it, the truth is the process involved in making a Will (if you’re new to the process, it’s recommended to use a  simple Will template) could be quite easy and won’t burn a hole in your pocket provided you to take its major drawbacks into consideration.

However, there are certain situations where you might face a few issues. One such situation is assisting a parent or loved one who is diagnosed with dementia. Of course, it’s not going to be a walk in the park when helping them plan for the future, but it’s absolutely necessary.

You would’ve heard the phrase “Time waits for none”. Well, that applies here; in simple words, the more time is wasted after the person is being diagnosed with dementia, the less time is left for them to partake in the Will planning process.

Now you might ask if it is possible for a person with dementia to draft their own Will. The answer is, “Yes, they can!” but only if certain criteria are met.

Before going through the different criteria, let’s take a look what Dementia actually is and its signs.


The five senses of the body namely, sense of sight, taste, touch, smell, and sound provide an essential role in how the body operates. Each one of the senses is vital in everyday life. For most people, eyesight is very precious among the five senses. I, for example, is afraid of losing the ability to see, because eyes allow us to connect with the surroundings, explore new things, and help us view the world around us.

The competition among the businesses is fierce and because of this, it can be difficult to draw the attention of new customers towards your business. But one thing that can be pretty much guaranteed is that it is impossible to grow a business without marketing.

Making use of traditional forms of marketing and advertising which includes magazine or newspaper ads or billboards on the side of the highway can be very expensive.

There has been a tremendous increase in the alternative finance business across the country. But have you ever given a thought to what has fuelled the rise of these alternative lenders?

Even since the 2008 crash, the high street British Banks have been very reluctant to fund the start-ups and small businesses. This has resulted in the failure of thousands of start-ups and small businesses over the last decade.

This gave rise to another question; can small business owners trust the high street banks?

Even after facing rejections, the small businesses continued to trust the big banks. But due to continuous failed and fraudulent activities of banks made the UK SMEs think otherwise. One such event was of a bank actively working against small businesses for mere reason of gaining profits and bonuses. RBS was exposed for making up fees, imposition of high interest rates, acquiring equity and property from failed businesses and for gaining huge bonuses over it.

Although this was a publicly owned bank, its behaviour was not in the benefits of the public. This incident certainly made small businesses and start-ups avoid seeking financial helps from the high street banks.

Even today, certain small businesses and start-ups believe in their local banks and trust them when it comes to financial support. What they forget is that they simply cannot rely on local banks to fulfil their financial needs anymore.

The FCA’s report on RBS is another example of how much have the big banks fallen in the eyes of the business community. This leaves us with the fact that the high street banks are no more number #1 choice for small businesses and start-ups seeking financial support.

If a financial institution like RBS could perform such an act for the mere purpose of gaining profits, it definitely raises questions for business owners regarding the trust they have placed in all the traditional banking institutions.

Ever since the crash of 2008, the business community has become more aware about the fact that the banking community is no longer their go-to option for business finance.
This in turn gave rise to several alternative finances industries such as business cash advances, peer to peer lending and many more.

Start-ups and growing businesses require money for a variety of reasons such as growth and expansion, paying their employees and suppliers, proper functioning of their business activities, etc. Moreover, they require money instantly.

This was precisely the kind of help that RBS was meant to provide the UK SMEs rather than being a department designed purely for gaining profits. As disappointing as it is, the start-ups and small business owners have to now focus and research other funding options and choose an alternative finance options that is most suitable for their business.

For starters, there are various funding options that an alternative lender can offer. Some of these include:
•       Cash flow finance
•       Invoice finance
•       Property finance
•       Overdraft

Along with this, business owners even have to look for an alternative funding source where the treatment, rates, advices and repayment terms are clear, fair and the system they dealing with are transparent.

To give this new emerging industry a boost, it is specially backed by the UK government. Also, to increase trust of the small business owners in the alternative funding, it possesses transparency, responsibility, fairness and security. These are exactly the characteristics and standards a well structured financial institution should be providing its consumers.

No matter what financial crisis you are facing, you can seek advice from these alternative finance firms and much more. We certainly do not force you to seek their help but they are a good alternative for securing funds. If you are uncomfortable and have issues trusting them, there are several other options to secure funds such government grants and small business loans.

However, in the last few years, alternative lenders have become #1 go-to choice for small business owners in need of assistance and financial support. Consider this example of the business cash advance which is also referred to as a merchant cash advance. This type of funding is made available from £500 up to £300,000 and is advanced to the businesses against future credit and debit card turnover.

Once you are definite about the kind of funding suitable for your business, the money that is agreed upon is quick and there is no need to prepare a business plan or provide security over it. The repayments then made on the borrowed amount are a small percentage of daily card payment transactions, rising or falling in line with card turnover.

Thus, the flexibility provided by alternative finance firms is very attractive to start-ups and small business owners. Along with the flexibility, businesses should know that these products are specially designed for their needs and is exactly the kind of service that RBS had promised to provide its customers before mistreating them.

The only difference here is that the alternative lenders have earned the trust of the public and business owners and will continue to maintain that position through transparent and fair behaviour and also by putting these independent business owners’ needs first.

Although, the RBS claims and promises to have adapted a better culture since the crash, it is a long road before the UK SMEs start to trust them again. Meanwhile, we believe that the alternative finance sector is bound to emerge and succeed.
