When To Get Car Insurance?

It's important that you have a car insurance policy before you actually drive the vehicle in question. It's illegal to drive a car on UK roads without a relevant policy for it. This applies wherever you are simply driving a car from one house to another or going for a long journey on a motorway – you must have a car insurance policy to be within the law.

It's even illegal to drive the car from the point of purchase to your home if you do not have a policy in place. This may seem strange as some people might be worried about buying a car insurance policy for a vehicle they have not yet sealed a deal for. The way around this is to get someone who has fully comprehensive cover allowing them to drive other vehicles to drive the car back to your home address for you. Alternatively, whoever it is you are buying the car from may allow you to put down a deposit, a proportion of the final sale price, to secure the car while you go away and sort a cover policy before driving it away and paying the full amount .

The main point is that there are no exceptions when it comes to the law, you must have a relevant policy in place before you drive a car on public roads. The police take a dim view of those who are caught. You can end up in court and face penal points on your license plus a fine. Persistent offenders may end up with a driving ban, and those who routinely break the law can even find themselves going to prison.

Although many people are still tempted and fail to get a policy, current technology means it is easier for officers to catch offenders. Something called automatic number plate recognition or ANPR technology means the police can simply use a camera to record the registration numbers of passing vehicles and compare them immediately to a database to see if they have a policy on them. Any questionable vehicles flagged up by the system will probably find themselves immediately dropped over.

Car insurance is also still needed if you are a learner driver, and you will need something in place before you take to the roads with your L plates and qualified driver in the passenger seat. Many people use a relative's or friend's car and are put on its insurance policy as a 'named driver' before taking to the wheel. Cutting corners is not advised and remember when you do get a car policy, cover comes in different levels – third party only is the minimum legal requirement.

To recap, here are a few points to keep in mind:

  • You need a policy before driving a car on UK public roads.
  • Insurance needs to be in place before you take to the wheel, whatever your reason for driving that car.
  • Learner drivers also need to be covered when driving on public roads.
  • Penalties

How Personal Branding Will Make You Happier – Crazy, Right? Wrong

What do you value most in life? For some people, it's money. Others prefer respect or a job title that makes them feel as if they've arrived. If you have health issues, you may rank a pain-free day as a number one priority.

Not me.

I want to be happy. I'm an entrepreneur, so every day the decisions that I make in my business are centered around one simple goal: how I will attract the clients I want into my life.

My Personal Branding Story

OK, so maybe you're going to tell me that it's easy to say you want to be happy once you've already achieved success, built a six-figure business, held the corner office job, or been heavily awarded for your work in fine arts.

But those are just paths in my life that helped make me an expert at what I do. They do not define who I am or represent my core creative values ​​- that's what my personal branding does.

Think about it for a minute. Of all your close friends, how many of them are just like you? Do they share your political views? like the same activities you do?

Maybe all of you even take similar vacations or have similar ethics related to your family. In fact, it's no big secret that research has proven time and time again that we tend to attract people who are most like us into our inner lives.

How to Apply Personal Branding to Your Business

When we talk about personal branding, what we really mean are the things you can do to tighten up the way you're perceived by the world. And I've worked with an incredible number of business professionals, including:

  • Health & wellness professionals
  • Lawyers / accountants
  • Real estate agents
  • Authors / publishers
  • Personal stylists
  • Coaching professionals

The professionals who are the most successful understand that establishing a consistent look across their website, business cards and marketing collateral can enable them to attract the clients they want into their business.

Even the pictures of themselves they use on their website have the ability to help their clients connect with them before they even walk in the door. It might seem simple, but when you start to look like a unified front, big changes automatically happens.

You Attract What Your Personal Brand Dictates

Why does it work? Putting out a specific brand message lets everyone know who you are, what you do, and who you want to work with. It's the perfect way to navigate your ship in the direction you want to go.

It's not just about finding a niche to zone in on, but also highly relevant to:

  • Presenting yourself as an expert
  • Being able to charge what you're worth
  • Offering the right services to the right people
  • Getting recognition and appreciation

I'm not going to preach to the choir here, but you're always going to get greater results when you focus on "the whole package." In fact, I saw it time and …
