If you intend continuing London Life beyond the story, it's
recommended that your character's trait is Smooth Talker

This trait will help you earn the millions of wealth needed
and is particularly beneficial when playing as a female

Playing through the story at the start of the game makes
it easier to follow and quickly unlocks extra characters

Completing the story early also gives you a useful amount
of happiness which in turn will help you earn more wealth

Focus on completing new quests rather than jobs as this
will start to unlock repeatable high wealth green quests

Before collecting your rewards after running an errand for
someone, make sure that your happiness level is at 100%

It's useful to carry food with you (Chamomile Tea or Cream
Tea are recommended) to replenish happiness on the run

Money can buy you happiness and buying stuff boosts
your total happiness by half the cost of the items bought

You can then sell these to Bruno for half their cost, use
the proceeds to buy more stuff and keep repeating this

The Newspaper doesn't always show all of the daily quests
and it's useful to watch the Grapevine under Happenings

The Grapevine also displays yellow stars to indicate which
of the repeatable green quests you've done at least once

Carry the Angler Vest, Angler Shorts and Angler Boots with
you and you'll automatically change into them when fishing
