Building an Emergency Fund: Why the Lockdown didn’t catch some with their pants down

We have now entered season 2 of the national lockdown and I’m very close to losing my marbles. The heavy bad news cycle is also affecting my spirits. We are all strapped into this rollercoaster, trying to keep sane at every twist and turn. Despite all of this, there are some important money lessons coming out of this lockdown. Some weren’t caught with their pants down. Let me shumayela (Preach) and explain. For many years, financial advisors and planners have…

What 14 Days Of Eating Healthy Taught Me About Money

I’ve often heard people saying that eating healthy and getting fit is expensive. The Gym memberships, various supplements and foods. With my Mkhaba, I definitely don’t have the answers. Whether this myth is true or not, I’ve always wondered if it would be possible to get Fit on a budget? So last month, we were graced by Juanita Khumalo at our Financial Boot camp. The entrepreneur and wellness influencer was there to debunk this myth and to show us how…

K for Kubi – Debt Has Turned 10.23 Million Consumers Into Modern Day Slaves!

It’s been a week and I thought that I would have recovered by now, from the statistics recently shared by the National Credit Regulator (NCR). I’m still shook that so many people have become modern day slaves to debt. They have robbed their future selves by spending money they have yet to earn, some even on frivolous things. That people are working, living and breathing to solely pay bills and debt orders. That 10.23 million consumers can’t even keep up…

The 3 Misconceptions About Money

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve found myself cringing at a number of tweets relating to money. Misconceptions, myths and false statements that could resurrect the dead like Pastor Lukau. This is what creates the illusion that money is complex and difficult to understand. So it’s important to address some of these misconceptions. A big salary will solve all your money problems… Uhm, NO! If you are struggling to save anything from your current salary, it is unlikely that…

But, since I am in the mood to preach the financial gospel, hold onto your money bible cause this will be a short money sermon. Let today’s random Monday money rant begin. As a result of a consumption mentality, poor planning, laziness, lack of financial education and wanting to sometimes show people that we…

Random Money Monday Rant – You are both the cause and the solution when it comes to your money!

Lol I read a tweet yesterday that said, “All I need is R1 Million to breathe properly”. I laughed, but realized that when it comes to spiralling debt or achieving a state of financial freedom, you are both the cause and the solution. It is your battle to win or to lose. No financial product, money management book, dodgy Forex trader or advisor is going to solve your money problems. It has to start with YOU! You need to be…
