South African television host, actress, singer and radio personality, Khanyi Mbau, has taken time out of her busy schedule to share her financial advice to live better with Capitec Bank.

What is your top financial goal for 2018?

I never make resolutions. Why? Because I hardly ever keep them, but this year is different. I’m determined to manage my finances better. My first step, which I’ve already taken, is switching to Capitec!

I’ve realised that having money in the bank is the first way to save, but where you keep your money is the trick. With Capitec, I get a better deal than at other banks. It’s much more affordable!

I’m also focused on getting my production company off the ground to make sure I have, strong source of income and safeguard my future.

What is your main tip for staying focused on your goals?

You should always be cognisant of your bigger goal no matter what. Sometimes we fail to set lasting goals and stick to it or them because we get distracted when other things come up. You need to set your story, as the trend and everything else should fall in around it. It also helps creating a vision board. I visualise my goals and try live within my means.
