Smart transacting techniques for 2018 and beyond
The new year has arrived and it’s time to get back to the grind of life. Weather it’s Januworry or Janoworry, it’s time to #BeFinanciallySmart with Eunice Sibiya's smart transacting techniques that you can use to reach your financial goals this year.
Sibiya kicked off the show with some questions that both Azania and the general public wanted to know.
Why should we transact smarter?
Sibiya says that if you look at the numbers, you can examine the landscape and see where you place in those statics. She adds that 44% of South African households have a budget, and of that percentage, 43% struggle to budget. That means only 1% of households don’t struggle to budget says Sibiya.

What are the smarter transacting techniques?
Sibiya says that it’s the things we know, which we tend to shy away from. She adds that South Africans aren’t disciplined, and we need to do a better job to understand and respect money.
1. You need to sit down and look at your transactions because it mirrors your spending patterns says Sibiya.
