Roulette is not only the oldest of the classic casino table games, it is apart from the slot machines also the most played casino game ever. The reason for the widespread use of this game is the easy-to-understand rules of the game, the exciting game principle and at the same time many different betting options with which you can pursue different strategies. Depending on the betting option, you will receive either slightly smaller payouts or with more risk a profit of up to 35 times the bet. gamblehub By far the most popular variant of this table game is the European one. This is mainly due to the fact that the chances of winning here are much better (only 2.7% House advantage) than with the American version (5.4%). In addition to the absence of the Double Zero, the La Partage rule increases the chances of winning slightly, however, this is not often found at the tables. https://roulette-explorer.webnode.com/l/the-martingale-roulette-system-does-it-work/

Returning to the Workforce

Regain your confidence and direction

Returning after being at home with children or other responsibilities, can be daunting.  People may feel a loss of confidence by being out of touch or behind in skill level, may question relevancy of their skills, whether they will adapt back to work while juggling their responsibilities at home. They may even question if their work interests remain as they were.   They may ask questions such as:

  • “Is now the right time to go back to work?”
  • “Should I look for part-time or full-time work?”  “Where do I start?”
  • “How can I update my skills when I don’t have the time or money to retrain?”
  • “Do others understand the struggles I face?”
  • “How do I resolve my guilt at leaving my child(ren) behind?”
  • “Will my child(ren) feel rejected?” “How will I juggle everything?”

Assessing your situation and creating a plan can answer some of those questions, begin to remove barriers and put you on the path to returning to work more confidently.  A career re-entry strategy will assist you in transitioning your thinking and gathering your confidence.  You will consider

  • Assess your reasons for returning and identify the key changes to that may occur
  • Understand the impact on your child(ren) and your partner
  • Identify what you want from your career/work
  • Assess your career including:
    • Identifying your skills and work interests
    • Values and drivers
    • Past and recent achievements
    • Ideal role
    • Working style and needs
    • Stress and its impact
    • Work life balance
    • Positioning your CV and Interview strategies
    • Importance of networking and getting the best out of recruiters

A successful return to work doesn’t need to be daunting. Like parenting, it will take time, effort, patience and at times a bit of help just to ensure you are on the right track.

Planning for Retirement

Transitioning successfully

The time spent in retirement now is considerably greater than it was for earlier generations.

Increasing life expectancy means that many people are now spending the equivalent of half (or more) of their working lives in retirement.

This requires them to focus their attention on planning for it if they wish to lead a happy, purposeful and meaning life through their retirement years. More New Zealanders are realising this and going on to enjoy this important part of their lives. We have observed that those who don’t plan often fear, and defer, their retirement. This not only has implications for them and their families, but also for their employers.

Our Retirement Planning workshop is in two parts and highlights:

Lifestyle Planning

  • What does retirement mean to me – am I ready, am I open to it?
  • How do I deal with change and loss, and how can I plan to ensure I transition successfully?
  • What are the key skills and talents I want to take with me into the next stage?
  • What are my concerns and what losses might I encounter?
  • What provides meaning and purpose for me in life and what will these look like:
  • Relationships – what will change with my spouse/partner, family and friends?
  • Leisure – what interests provide meaning and fulfillment?
  • Work – do I want to continue working in a different capacity – what might this look like?
  • Voluntary work – what type of activity might provide satisfaction and meaningfulness?
  • Learning – what would I like to pursue – e.g. a hobby, intellectual pursuit or an interest?
  • Health and wellbeing – how do I ensure optimum physical and emotional health?
  • Location – what are the things I need to think about and the impact of change?
  • Social – how will my social life differ?
  • What does my retirement plan now look like and how can I make this a reality?
