This year sees a fourth year of our My Best Self campaign. The idea is to share stories about how we can all step up and be our best selves. We often have a choice in life as to how we act, react or behave, and I am fascinated by what prompts us to make the right choices to be the best version of ourselves in those moments. Here, Jo interviews Alex Pearce, Financial Advisor.

That’s why we have chosen, ‘Be still, be present, be mindful’ as our Mantra of the Month this time, to see what advice we can learn from this.
