Too many of us have lived life on borrowed money, spending what we don’t have and racking up credit card debt. Now is the time to change that behavior once and for all. Where can you trim your spending so you can save more?
Here’s what could happen if you don’t have a Will -
Your estate will get distributed according to South African law and not according to your wishes. This means people you may have wanted to inherit something won’t, and those you didn’t want to, might.
If your Will hasn’t been updated from your previous marriage, or you aren’t currently married to your partner, they may be left with nothing.
Instead of your children receiving their inheritance, it could pass directly to the Government Guardian’s Fund.
Ugly feuds that could split families could result from relatives and loved ones fighting over the distribution of your estate.
Without a Will-nominated professional executor, your estate could take years to wind up, and the Government will be in control of the entire process.
So if you need assistance contact us to get peace in your mind.

📢 Young Investors
Saving for retirement is probably the last thing on your mind. 🤐 But, the BEST time to start saving for retirement is in your twenties! 💰🎉
One of the most dangerous mistakes families make is to insure only the breadwinner. As a matter of fact, it is just as important to have a life insurance policy that covers stay-at-home parents, too. Think it through logically for a moment: If the stay-at-home spouse were to die, and there were young children, the surviving spouse would probably need to hire someone to care for the kids. Where is that money going to come from? Even if your children are in their teens, help from a homework tutor or a driver to transport them to and from sports practices, music lessons, and so on, may be necessary. Remember, your partner or spouse can't be expected to work a full-time job and help 100 percent of the time with the needs of the children. The proceeds from the life insurance policy will enable a surviving partner or spouse to hire caregivers without the worry of spending "extra" money. I recommend you work up an estimate of what the annual cost would be to hire a team to support your family. Multiply that sum by the number of years until your last kid is out the door. That's how much life insurance you need.
One strategy people 50 and over can employ to prepare for retirement: Give your money a reality check. This is the time that you really need to look at your total financial situation, in terms of how much money are you spending, how much are you saving? You should do everything you can to cut back on unnecessary expenses. If you own a home and plan to stay in it, make sure you have a plan in place to pay off the mortgage by the time you retire.
Some important notes:
The 7 Most Life-Changing Pieces of Financial Advice I’ve Ever Received
1. “Most people who overspend their income do so in one of three ways: 1) Too much house, 2) Too much car, 3) Too much entertainment.” // Financial adviser, 2008.
I made a passing statement to a financial adviser friend of mine one particular evening over dinner. I had no data to back up the claim, it was purely an observation made on anecdotal evidence. I told him that most people I know who are living in debt seem to carry a monthly car payment. That’s when he offered the financial advice above in the form of his own personal interactions.
There are outstanding circumstances for sure (medical emergencies, tragedy, job layoffs, etc.). But generally speaking, if you have a hard time living within your income, check your spending on your home, your car, or your entertainment (dining, tickets, trips). I have tried to keep all three modest ever since.
2. “Begin your marriage living on just one income.” // Boss, 2000.
My wife and I got married in June 1999. During our first several years of marriage, we both worked full-time jobs. My boss at the time, a man I looked up to in countless ways, offered me financial advice one day during a short conversation by the coffeemaker. He suggested, even though both of us had steady incomes, as a newly-married couple we should work hard to live on just one of the incomes and save the other.
So we did. My wife’s income each pay period went immediately into savings and my income went into the checking account.
One year later, that savings account became the down payment on our first home. And four years later, when we had our first child, we were still living on one income which freed up my wife to choose to stay home if she desired.
3. “Buy your car with cash.” // Friend, 2004.
My first car, a Chevrolet Corsica, I bought from my parents and paid them back monthly over the course of one year. When that car began to sputter eight years later, I entered the marketplace to purchase another. Talking it over with my friend one day over a roast beef sandwich, he offered me his thoughts:
“Whatever you have in savings,” he said, “make that your budget for your next vehicle—even if it isn’t much. Then, rather than making a payment to the bank on your existing car, begin making a monthly payment to yourself for your next car. Whatever you would have paid for a car payment, put into a savings account. When your next car dies, you will have a bigger budget for the next one—then, repeat the cycle. You’ll be surprised how quickly you are able to upgrade your vehicle over the course of your life.”
This is advice I have never strayed from. And it’s totally true.
4. “If you can’t keep a monthly budget, use a spending plan instead.” // Writer, 2009.
In 2009, as we were just beginning our journey into minimalism, I was introduced to the idea of a Spending Plan. Contrary to a monthly budget that requires detailed tracking and frustrates many, a spending plan provides flexibility as it offers more of a snapshot, moment-in-time glance of your current spending. But the knowledge and lessons learned from the snapshot view of income vs. expenses provides valuable insight for course correction.
The idea is worth the effort for everyone. First, determine your monthly take-home pay. Second, subtract your fixed monthly costs. The money left over is your monthly discretionary income. With that number in hand, you are in a good place to determine where you’d like that money to go. Here’s a more detailed explanation.
5. “You are never too poor to give.” // Parents, 1979.
Growing up, there was not excess money around our home. In fact, only years later did I begin to hear the stories and understand how tight it was at times. The most significant involves a local grocery store raffle contest that happened to draw my parents’ names on the very week they seemed entirely out of options to feed their young family. And yet, through it all, my parents lived with a simple philosophy on generosity: “We will give to charity, and we will teach our children to do the same.”
Their example and their advice have revolutionized my life and my view of money. No matter how tight my money situation has been over the years, I don’t think I have ever missed the opportunity to give away at least a small portion of every paycheck I have received. This is not because I made lots of money. Quite the contrary, it is because I learned from a young age that generosity has rewards of its own and is always worth the sacrifice.
6. “Never take a job just because of the money. Always consider the money, but never let it be the determining factor.” // Mentor, 1998.
In 1998, following a two-year internship after college, I began the search for my first full-time job. I remember, at that time, seeking the counsel of a spiritual mentor of mine. Sitting across from his desk, I asked about money and how much I should let that factor dictate my decision.
He responded with some of the best advice I have ever received: “Joshua, you need to consider the money. A job that pays too little or seeks to take advantage of you will ultimately add stress and worry to your life and keep you from doing your best work. So you have to consider it. But never let it be the most important, determining factor in your search. Always consider your talents and skills and strengths and the opportunity to make a difference in the world first.”
I have tried, throughout my life, to consider income in the jobs I have taken, but have never allowed it to be the most determining factor. And I have literally no regrets concerning the path that career advice has taken me.
7. “One extra monthly payment per year on your mortgage shortens the length of your loan by years.” // Real Estate Broker, 2001.
While working through the specifics of our first home purchase, our real estate agent made a passing comment concerning our mortgage payments. For her, I think it was just a simple fact about the mechanics of amortization schedules. But for me, it became a life-changing goal—make one extra monthly payment each year on my mortgage
