Barking up the wrong tree

Although not involved in mortgage advice, I did read with interest the recent Money Marketing profile of Simon Conn and was most interested in his “alternative career”.

Alongside being an IFA for 43 years, I have also been a partner in a boarding kennels for the past nine years.

If Simon would like to get his dream out of his system, he is welcome to come to Follybridge and try running the place 24/7/365 for a couple of weeks so that we can have a holiday.

I am sure it will soon change his mind.
