I enjoyed reading this post, and would urge you to take some notes too. After a conversation I had with my significant other yesterday, and being once again AWAKENED to the existence of financial levels… one line of advice that I will definitely put into practice going forward is to LIVE BELOW MY MEANS.

It’s quite a lot to process, but trust me when I say that you will thank yourself for having taken the initiative to get clued up and fixed up one day.
Like Phindi, I too have a penchant for nice things.
