KAMINI PATHER, WIN­NER OF MASTERCHEF SA SEA­SON 2, HOST OF GIRL EAT WORLD, AND MEDIA PER­SON­AL­ITY ear younger me: You were not born to be a hippy, no mat­ter how many pieces of tie-die cloth­ing you own. You like shiny things. And money makes the world go round, so you need to know ex­actly what is pot­ting. And while you may have many other skills, let’s be hon­est: money man­age­ment is not your forte. But there are peo­ple in the world who have the knowl­edge to help you, so go and find them. And as it is with your hair – you may leave the cut­ting up to the ex­perts, but it is YOU who knows what style you like and what colour and cut suits you – so it is with money; only you know your own needs and fi­nan­cial goals. So take re­spon­si­bil­ity for the cre­ation of your own wealth, and give con­stant in­put to your ad­vi­sor. Check your port­fo­lio. Check your re­turns. Ask ques­tions.

RA­DIO PRE­SEN­TER, KFM reat money with the ut­most re­spect and don’t see it as an im­me­di­ate com­mod­ity. Money can go a long way, de­pend­ing on how knowl­edge­able you are about mak­ing it work for you. As tight as things may seem when you are young, in­vest­ing and sav­ing is never a bad idea.

TBanks will come to you, be­cause you’re in good stand­ing ev­ery­thing will be of­fered to you on a buffet of credit, from cloth­ing ac­counts and new cars to fur­ni­ture ac­counts. But credit is not wealth. Be able to de­ci­pher what works for you and what doesn’t.
