Creating an online course ‘changed my life’

angel may

Like many others, interior stylist Lucy Gough saw her income disappear when the coronavirus hit and naturally felt anxious about her future prospects.

“Within one week the four shoots I’d been prepping for were all cancelled,” she recalls.

However, rather than do nothing, London-based Ms Gough decided to pivot her business and create an online interior styling course after teaching a similar course at London design school Central Saint Martins.

“Even though I’d wanted to create a course for the last year it wasn’t until lockdown was confirmed and all my income evaporated that I started creating it,” she says.

Covering six modules including shoot styling and home staging, Ms Gough launched the self-paced course in mid-May and within two weeks had already attracted 112 students from as far as Canada and Poland. She estimates that the course might make her £20,000 this year.

“It has changed my life in

Working from home can be a challenge, especially if you’re used to the relative peace and quiet of being at an office most days. I’ve found that one of the best ways to filter out the noise of home life and stay focused while working has been to slip on a pair of headphones, play some coffee shop background noise and get on with my day. 

If you’re on the hunt for a set of headphones that’s effective at noise-cancelling, but are not willing to spend

Life Insurance Application Procedures Changing Amid the Pandemic

angel may

While life insurance coverage is still widely available amid the COVID-19 pandemic, some insurers are adjusting certain processes to accommodate the new norms created by social distancing.

Life insurance applicants have traditionally been required to pass a physical exam to get a policy. However, the need for social distancing due to the pandemic has led some insurers to begin offering significant levels of coverage without an exam. That was one of the findings of a recent conversation ValuePenguin had with two life insurance brokers from The Robinson Financial Group, a financial services company based in Skokie, Ill.

That sentiment was underscored by a recent survey by LIMRA, a membership group for insurance and financial services organizations. LIMRA found that insurers were implementing ways to do business while cutting down on face-to-face interactions throughout the entire underwriting process.

Implementing new procedures

With COVID-19 sickening millions of people across the globe and

It’s mostly good news.

The coronavirus pandemic has many of us thinking about worst case scenarios. It’s only natural that people are considering whether, in the event of their absence, their loved ones would be financially protected. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably given it some thought yourself. 

Here’s the good news: 

If you have an active life insurance policy and you were to die of a pandemic illness such as COVID-19, your family would receive the death benefit — even if you had traveled to an area with a known outbreak of the coronavirus. 

The only situation in which that might not be true is if you were just recently approved and you failed to disclose certain information on your application about your travel plans and/or exposure to the coronavirus. 

Also, if you keep your

Guaranteed issue life insurance

Guaranteed issue life insurance takes the concept of simplified issue life insurance – forgoing the health exam – and takes it a step further in that you don’t have to answer any questions about your health, either. As long as you can pay the premium, the insurer will cover you, needing only your age, sex, and state of residence.

That makes it appealing for older people, whose declining health makes it prohibitively expensive to get coverage with another insurance types.
Guaranteed issue life insurance is useful for elderly applicants, but others can likely get more life insurance coverage at a lower cost with a different policy type.

Just like with simplified issue life insurance, the lack of insight into your health conditions that a medical exam and interview
