“If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.” -- Rita Mae Brown

Dear Vestpoders,

I hope you are having a good week! Tomorrow we are hosting our Vestpod Series about Money Mindset and it should be 💥💥💥. Grab a ticket and join us for breakfast (£10).

😱Ok, we have a little emergency that we need to talk about. In a little more than a week, many of us will have to submit our tax return and pay our taxes for the period 2018/19 (April to April). So we want to dedicate all our energy talking about it this week and give you our best last minute tips to avoid a big freak-out. Hint: tax returns are not only for self-employed!

📩But that’s not all. We’ve interviewed Le’Nise about her attitude to money Melissa is writing about avoiding tax-return panic, and we have our usual anonymous money diary.

On my side, I hosted a sold-out Vestpod workshop last week about investing and was invited to talk about financial wellness on the brilliant Dr. Alex George’s podcast at Facebook, youhouuuuu (if, like me, you don’t watch Love Island, just google him!). Should be out in February.

Have a good one! You can do this!

Yet many of us still leave it too late and incur a fine. So let’s look at how you can get the job done without too much trauma.
