How to achieve financial freedom

Phumelele will personalise a talk for your audience.

“I think people are opening up and appreciating the need to speak about money and ask for guidance especially. We are not taught about money either at school or at university. In addition, so many of us never heard about financial planning growing up. With things changing for the better, I want people to have the wisdom to ensure they keep and grow their money,” she says.
