Book Overview


A Guide to Financial Well-being book is an introduction to the language of money and financial literacy.

Get in touch with us to discuss it:


The main reason people are told to go to school is so they can acquire a good job that
pays well. Unfortunately, the advice stops there. There is little advice about what must
be done with the money they receive from this well-paying job. We spend twelve to fifteen years studying to acquire a job, yet when we get the money, there is very little time spent on studying how to manage and grow that money.

It is very sad to see many people studying and working diligently, yet never attaining financial wellbeing. It is good to earn a lot of
money, but if the soil is not fertile and a farmer throws many seeds on it, the result is just the same as if the farmer had done nothing.

The Things People Say.Testimonials

    “As a Deputy Headmaster, I appreciated that Mkhulu was a teacher who managed to attain financial well-being by having a good relationship, understanding, and managing his money well. I believe this book should be an additional resource in schools as our curriculum does not sufficiently address financial education. Financial literacy is a critical life skill that all our learners need to acquire in order to lead prosperous lives

        “I like the theme of starting small until you are comfortable and experienced in the business. The book speaks to what many young people struggle with, who tend to believe that they must get external funding before starting their business.”
