What do these subjects all have in common? the answer is clear — it’s ‘me’!!!

Am I an expert in all of thes things — not at all. When it comes to education I’ve been educated in the British state system and have a degree and postgraduate in teaching and I was the first person in my family to go into higher education. My children have surpassed me in that and I could not be prouder — but I’m no education expert.

As for sport I’m not at all sporty. I enjoy watching athletics, the Olympics, Paralympics etc but I don’t enjoy team sports at all and have zero interest in football, cricket — though an occasional game or event will attract my attention. I hate exercise with a passion and count walking as my nod to keeping fit.

I’ve interviewed some famous footballers in the UK and frankly found most of them to be boring to talk to. Their ability to hold a conversation, in many cases, stopped beyond their feet and a football.

I’m not into money — I like to have it, earn it, spend it but I don’t live and breath money, I don’t have a growth mindset when it comes to money. What I do know is that there are many other people who are much better around money than me — and I admire that and am fascinated by it.
