Happy 1st Birthday, YEI !!

YEI celebrates its first birthday on 23 September 2012! What a rollercoaster ride it has been. We started from scratch and when we look back to see what we have achieved in one year, we think it’s pretty darn good!! We have a long way to go, but could not have made it this far without the tremendous support of our founding advertisers who have believed in the YEI vision of supporting the over-50s. A heartfelt thank you to these wonderful advertisers! And most importantly, we can’t do it without you, the YEI members. With your input, we are building and moulding YEI into the entity that you require.

YEI is chuffed to welcome Mediclinic Senior on board. Mediclinic Senior supports patients (age 50+) with a fantastic programme! Please click here for further details on the Mediclinic Senior Programme.

YEI is over the moon with the Sunday Times subscription offer! This has to be one of the BEST deals that YEI has been offered for ALL of our YEI members – a 53% discount. Please share this with all your family and friends.

In our articles this month, we talk about retrenchment, entrepreneurship and
St Helena. Our regular Nedbank feature talks about the economic force of the platinum sector. 1 October is International Day of Older Persons – YEI commits to examine issues that affect the lives of the over 50s, and kickstarts this with our article on "Don’t put me out to pasture". The YEI News column welcomes some fabulous new advertisers and updates you on a new discount offering for some of your favourite magazines – up to 50% discount! You really should peruse the Discounts and Benefits section – there are some great offers which could assist you in cutting down on your spend.

Until next time…

Kind regards,
Marilyn and the YEI Team
