Contact Joy Healey

FacebookSilver180x180I operate by email and online, so if you have questions, please use the contact form below, or leave me a message on: Facebook.

Sometimes questions can be sorted out by Facebook messages or email, but if we find we need to talk, we can schedule that 🙂

I am a qualified life-coach and welcome new clients looking to plan a care-free retirement – and it's NEVER too early to start thinking about how you can achieve that. Don't do, as I did, and leave it too late.

Welcoming Guest Authors

I welcome good quality articles from guest authors, if they will be of interest to my target readers (see below), so please feel free to contact me on the form below using the subject lines described in my guidelines.

HOWEVER…. I get so many requests these days that I can quite easily miss them or ignore them, thinking they're sales emails unless they have followed the guidelines below. So…..

Click here to read my post about guidelines to getting your articles accepted plus a few rants that led to previous authors having their guest articles rejected 🙂 Please read and if you'd still like to submit an article, I look forward to hearing from you – with the subject line suggested on the post.

Free Consultation For Potential Customers

I give a free 30 minute consultation to anyone interested in purchasing any or the products or services described on this site.

You won't get a “hard-sell” on anything. I'm the least “salesy” person I know and I would honestly prefer you NOT to buy from me than to make the wrong decision for your situation.

Please use the form below to:

  • Suggest a few convenient UK times
  • Tell me what your aims and aspirations for retirement are
  • A little about your current situation and business experience (if relevant)
  • Tell me your questions in case I need to look out detailed information

Knowing all this in advance will save time for both of us on the call, and help me to be better prepared with helpful answers to your questions.

I look forward to helping you and getting to know you better.

PS My one request is that you don't use this call to try and sell something to me. After reviewing many alternatives, I'm completely happy with the businesses I'm involved with, and am actively avoiding starting on anything new.

If you have problems with the contact form, please leave me a message on: Facebook.

Before contacting me, please check that you're happy with my Privacy Policy.

Who Is This Blog For?

The focus of my blog is on preparing for a happy retirement, with special attention on making sure that you will have enough time and money to enjoy those little luxuries you're looking forward to.

My slant is on running a part-time business to increase your income – whether:

  • You are still working full-time or part-time, but realise you haven't planned well enough to replace your current income and maintain your life-style. (That's me!)
  • You are already retired and find you don't have the income to support the life-style you had hoped for
  • You now have the time on your hands to take on a new challenge and relish the idea of being your own boss, but do not want to spend hours on end or incur huge start-up costs.

This Blog Is Not For You If…..

  • You believe that “get rich quick” exists. It doesn't.
  • You need extra income but are down to your last penny. Get a part-time job, to sell some of your “stuff” on eBay.
  • You need financial planning advice. I DO NOT offer, or need, financial planning advice.

    I left a rather long message, and I’m not
    sure if your system allowed it!

    The short of it, is this. If the possibilities of us somehow
    becoming JV partners, interest you in any way!

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, via the contact
    page on my blog, at your earliest convenience!


    P.S. Your post was awesome!

    • Joy says:

      Thanks Mark,

      I did get your comments and emails 🙂

      My “comment policing plugins” are a bit too aggressive really. I’m trying to teach them to be better behaved, but every so often they have a bit of a tantrum (and most are not even two years old yet).

      Nice suggestion about a JV and I’ll have a think and get back to you.

    Joy, I have added scheduling a consultation with you to my list. I have a couple of projects I need to finish before I can add more appointments to my plate. 🙂 ~Adrienne

  • Paul Larson says:

    My name is Paul Larson. I’m a writer who are interested in collaboration with your website. I would like to offer to place guest posts on your site.
    I would greatly appreciate your answer!

    • Joy says:

      Hi Paul,

      You asked about publishing a guest article on my blog.

      I have emailed you with specific notes, but in general I need articles to be relevant to my readers, original and 900+ words, accompanied by copyright free images.

      If that’s OK with you, please send some suggested topics, or your suggested article and I’ll let you know.

      I have quite a backlog of articles waiting for publication.

      Kind regards


  • Did you get my email? Your contact form is telling my browser as spambot. Weird.

    • Joy says:

      Hi Sandeep,

      Sorry about that – sometimes I am defeated by all these technical things. You can contact me on Facebook at joy.healey, but please accompany it with a message saying why you are contacting me as I get a lot of requests 🙂

      Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year, Joy

    • Joy says:

      Sorry Sandeep, I have updated my contact page to include Facebook details as an alternative.

    Hi Joy,

    It was very nice talking to you and thank you very much for your time. You have been very helpful. I really appreciate it.

    Good luck with your new book and please send me a link to it when it’s published. I’m sure I will learn a thing or two from it!

    Best regards,
