How to Release Anger at God & Celebrate Friends’ Successes

  I recently received an awesome question from a reader about releasing anger at God and allowing ourselves to celebrate others’ success. I really loved the question and decided to share the question and the answer on the blog. Reader Question Good Evening Sis Vangile, can I ask you a question? Have you ever been angry with God? I’m a graduate from TUT. I got my diploma in BTech but for the past 3yrs I’ve been job hunting with no luck. It upsets me when I see other people getting good jobs, some with fewer qualifications than me....

3 Financial Wisdoms Gained from Getting My Car Broken Into

A few days ago my car got broken into – someone smashed my car window and took stuff (1 box and a backpack) that belonged to a friend of mine. They would’ve taken lots more stuff but I caught them in the act and ended up wrestling with one of them in the middle of the street and took back the box he was running away with. I guess I was having a Jackie Chan moment (LOL). I’m fine, not at all traumatized by the whole experience. As everything was happening I was having these aha moments and financial wisdoms even though I was really upset...

How to Create Abundance by Changing Our Feelings About Money

  I’ve been in some physical pain this past week, mainly because I did a 3 peaks challenge in Cape Town, where I climbed 2.5 mountains in one day.

But I’m glad I did it because at least now I know my potential as a hiker. Taking the first step to anything is always difficult. The hike reminded me a lot about my journey to...

Should You Pay Back Debt Or Focus On Saving?

I’ll be making my last ever student loan payment in a few hours. It’s been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make – focus on saving or paying off debt? I started off doing a bit of both but in the last few months, I changed my strategy and focused on paying off all debts and have used almost all my savings to do this. Why? Because my student loans are in US Dollars and I earn in South African Rands and in the last 9 months, the rand has depreciated significantly against the Dollar, making my debts even more expensive. So in the...

Posted by on in Personal Finance, Vlog | 0 comments

  In the past few months I’ve received a series of emails from people who are looking to leave their jobs and wondering: is it a good idea to ever use/ borrow from my retirement fund?
