Why is financial education important to you? 
In the western world we are driven by finance and its impact on us personally. I believe it is key to have the knowledge that will help me be in the best possible position to make financial decisions now and in the future. The impact of making or not making financial decisions is usually down to financial education so it is imperative to be aware of the fundamental things that affect me my family and community.

What is your number 1 financial tip? 
Do not spend all your income; save some.

Occupation: Cake Decorator

Why is financial education important to you? 
Financial education is important because I think it will guide us into being wise with how we spend our money and how we view money. I think it can help us plan for the future and help us teach our children how to be financially literate which in turn will develop our communities into building and creating wealth.

Atinuke Kayode

Occupation: Full Time Mother and Entrepreneur

Why is financial education important to you? 
Because we were not really taught financial education growing up, at school or in our families so it’s always good to keep clued up - not just for yourself but for your children too.

Michael Tabirade

Occupation: Digital Marketing Business Owner & Motivational Speaker

Why is financial education important to you?
Being financially educated means one can develop an opportunity to finally design their life for the better. Ignorance is the difference between life and death so if one can position themselves for success, they're more likely to have more options in life; improved basic wellbeing, a life of confidence and improved self-esteem.

Evidence has shown that poor financial education leads to a poor standard of living, depression and increased crime in our society. It's more than just about money, it's a way of life.

What is your number 1 financial tip?
Find a way to solve a big problem for a niche community, and learn how to get paid consistently by helping them solve their problems in many different ways.

Chantel Nyame

Occupation: Training and Awareness Raising Officer and Property Manager at Smart Letts (Business on the side)

Why is financial education important to you?
Financial education is important to me as I feel the more financially literate I become, the better financial decisions I make. I also would like to pass on the financial knowledge I have gathered to my family, most especially my children. I would want my children to be introduced to better ways of thinking of/handling money much earlier on in their lives than I was.

What is your number 1 financial tip?
My favourite financial quotes are:

  1. Save money, and money will save you.
  2. It isn’t entirely about how much money you make, but how much you keep and what you do with what you keep.
