About us

People have repeatedly asked me why I chose to write about personal finance. This is often accompanied by rolling eyes and “it’s so boring”. It might be a tedious topic but the decisions you make about money and how you choose to handle your finances will affect every aspect of your life. My response is “how can you not be more interested about learning to make the right financial choices and how your money can work for you rather than the other way around?”

Over the years, I have come across so many different readers from all walks of life and earning different levels of income. It doesn’t matter whether you earn R40 000 a month or R5 000 a month. Everyone has the same questions about how to manage their money best, so that they can live the life they want to live. One of the more scary statistics for me personally, is the fact that financial problems are cited as the second highest reason for suicide.  So, I write about personal finance in the hope that what I write will make a difference to someone else’s life. So that financial problems don’t ever cause them to consider suicide as an option.

If you take anything away from my website, I hope this is it – there is always an answer and it’s never too late to start saving, to start investing, to pay off debt – to make the right financial choices for you.

    Hi Neesa Moodley-Isaacs

    Thank you for providing such free and informative advice

    I have been interested in trading and investing for as long as i can remember

    I enjoyed reading your highly intelligent and mature topics on financial matters, and if i may add i’m not in the place or financial situation as i would like to find myself.

    I can honestly say you are making a difference in whoever’s life that stumbles apon” your blogs.

    All i want to say is keep it up you have certainly made me more aware of matters regarding money issues.

    I’m definitely coming back to this site to learn more.

    Just one request, if you could perhaps tell me if there are any “binary options trading bots” that actually work or don’t you recommend them?

    Like the site says “every cent counts” i say “every good intention counts”

    Gracious Regards

    You are writing about one of the most powerful topics for mankind, which is knowing how to manage your money, no matter the amount, but I can tell you many people are miserable cause they think the answer is somewhere out there while it is in and with them all the time. Taking responsibility has liberated me and today I’m a happy person cause I made the choice to be happy.
    Thank you.
