"Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you." -- Hillary Clinton ⚡
Welcome to our summer edit,

We interviewed Arleen this week, Senior Manager and Risk and Compliance Officer. She is talking about financial independence and how “money buys freedom. Freedom to make decisions about how to spend your time.

Important to note: Payday lender Wonga goes into administration in UK after a surge of customer complaints. “Wonga customers can continue to use Wonga services to manage their existing loans but the UK business will not be accepting any new loan applications. Customers can find further information on the website.” More from MoneySavingExpert.

MoneyTalk With Arleen
Senior Manager and Risk and Compliance Officer
"My mother always told me and my sisters to make sure that we were always independent (financially and otherwise). So, to me that means that I am able to not only stand on my own two feet financially, but also have the flexibility and resilience to pick myself up or re-invent myself if need be."
