What was your money moment?

As soon as I was old enough to appreciate what money was, I learned that hard work and a desire to save was a rewarding challenge. During the school holidays, whenever I could, I worked as a labourer for my parents’ swimming pool construction company.

Once I left school I started working full time on the tools and my passion for giving my best strengthened. I am continuing to learn about planning ahead and having realistic goals, but my main focus still remains the same – have my own home before I am 25, and own a thriving business that will give me financial stability and the platform for new challenges.
