The Friday Stand-In 2016

Once homeless, top CEO Frank Magwegwe hits the airwaves as #FridayStandIn

Founder and managing director Financial Wellness Group Frank Magwegwe says his show will look at the meaning of active citizenship.

Magwegwe's own personal story of how he overcame homelessness is what inspired him to change other people's lives.

As part of his daily job he helps individuals, families and organisations work to improve their financial strength. He provides financial education and financial wellness solutions.

After months of being homeless living on the streets of Johannesburg, he started making money through selling and recycling. He later met someone who helped him apply to study at Wits University.

He graduated from Wits University in 1996 with a BSc in Mathematical Sciences and Mathematical Statistics.

And also got a first class BSc (Hons) in Advanced Mathematics of Finance. In 2002, Frank completed an MSc (cum laude) in Financial Mathematics at the University of Pretoria.

He has worked as the CEO for Momentum Administration Services.

On his Friday Stand-In show he says he also wants to advise people on how to manage their finances during festive season and avoid overspending and ending up broke in January.

His other passion is books and reading, and he plans to share a list of books to inspire listeners festive season reading.
