The Personal Finance series with Warren Ingram

Is Julia still a supersaver? Because life (and kids!) happen…

Listeners of Bruce Whitfield’s The Money Show may be familiar with Julia, the young savings superhero.

Personal Financial Advisor Warren Ingram – a Thursday regular – introduced her to Whitfield a few years back.

When she was first featured she earned about R1 million per year, yet drove a Corsa Lite.

She has since upgraded ever so slightly to a Toyota Etios.

Julia, by that time already a multimillionaire, invested a third of her income.

As her salary increased she invested more.

She could afford to, but refrained from moving into a big house or buying a fancy car.

She avoided the trap of meeting her improved income with increased expenditure.

Julia has since become a mother – is she still a supersaver?

Tune in on Thursday, 20 July during the second half of The Money Show for the answer to that question.

Listen to previous years' Julia interviews below.
