“Money may not be the most important thing in life, but it affects everything that is important” – Author Unknown.
Hello, I am Caroline Marwisa, the founder of Master Your Finances, a Personal Finance Leadership, Research and Education Institution. I started researching the subject of personal finance in 2012 and feel energised each time I engage on the subject, during a talk, workshop or while doing research. I get frustrated by the financial outcomes achieved by individuals after long careers and seeing many people struggle in this area. My research has been rooted both in my personal struggles in this area and a need to provide answers to many individuals who seek answers to some very basic personal finance questions. This passion resulted in me publishing my book, Master Your Finances – the art of building wealth in 2015 and then republished through Knowledge Resources in 2017. I went on to develop a course that brings personal finance concepts together in a framework that helps individuals to obtain credible, non-biased personal finance education to improve their knowledge, skills, mindsets and change their habits for better financial outcomes.
I believe that individuals have to own their finances which quite a number do, however, struggle to find a trusted place to obtain this information. This is the problem Master Your Finances is addressing. Our goals are to achieve the following:
Although we are launching from a South African base, the intention is that Master Your Finances is applicable to Africans in general agnostic to their location.
