Hi. I'm Nick Blackford, and I'd like to share my story with you...

I’ve run a successful financial services business for many years, supporting clients with their investments, pensions and mortgages.

But I’ve always felt like I was just scratching the surface.

My family ran a business for a long time, and I regularly watched my father working hard, morning, noon and night to provide for us all. He was constantly tired and stressed. And then, sadly, he was taken from us in his late fifties, before he had time to retire and enjoy the fruits of his own labour.

This got me thinking… There has to be a better way. Why do we work hard all of our lives, often feeling like we are on a hamster wheel? What happens if retirement wasn’t the joy we were expecting?

I started to explore what the alternatives could be; which is when I came across lifestyle planning.

Of course, I needed to test the concept, so I started with my own LifePlan. And now, I can tell you that I am living the life I want to live, with the financial security behind me for now and the future, including my family.

So, I’m living proof that LifePlan really does work. And that’s why I can be so passionate about making it work for you.

As time has gone on, I have trained other members of our Copthorne team, so they can deliver this exciting approach too.

We would love to show you just how powerful LifePlan can be for your life, so give us a call on 01344 875 310, and let’s arrange a chat.
