Unlearn those bad childhood money habits and #BeFinanciallySmart
Where do you get your financial planning advice? Do your friends come to you for money management advice? What do you think your children are learning from watching the way you transact?
This Monday on the 'Be Financially Smart with FNB' series, 702's Azania Mosaka and head of FNB’s Consumer Education Program, Eunice Sibiya, spoke about the legacy of bad habits and how that affects your financial stability.
Sibiya explains that while growing up, most people are not conscious about money, managing finances and spending habits in a household.
What you saw happening growing up, will likely become habits adapted without any interrogation in your adult life, she adds.

We picked up traits and habits that became a norm says Sibiya. She goes on to say, upon reflecting on the financial mistakes made, it is vital to keep the good habits and discard all the bad ones.
