I grew up in Francistown on a cattle farm along the Old Matseloje Road. From when I was a little girl, my gran told me to become an accountant and to save, save, save! I didn’t really understand what that was all about, but only recently did I realise that she was afraid of losing her wealth. She was an amazing woman and I have many fond memories of baking with her, playing cards (for money of course) and going to Sunday mass. I have realised that for so many people, investing and planning for the future is scary and it’s hardly a wonder why it’s often too stressful to even think about. I decided to join the financial services industry because I had absolutely no idea about how it worked and it seemed like it was one of the world’s best kept secrets. My mission is to make finance and investing something that all Batswana can be familiar with and to provide individuals with the basic knowledge to be able to make good decisions so that they can build a better financial future for themselves.
