  • Thank you for this talk, very valuable and inspirational. Can you tell me where I can access the next Money Makeover competition application?
    Or if the competition is over where I can sign up and pay for this course? Who is the financial advisor I can speak to?
    Thank you.

    • we will be opening applications for the new competition in November. I can tell you that Steven Williams a financial adviser at Absa was Samke’s adviser. There are also companies that help people by creating debt repayment plans. Sugar Creek Wealth is an advisory firm that has set up a debt rehabilitation division. I think they charge around R125 per month
