One-on-one Financial Coaching with Mapalo

Financial coaching is a personal and transformative process designed to help individuals navigate the complexities of their financial lives. Unlike traditional financial planning consultations that often focus on specific products and solutions, financial coaching takes a more holistic and compassionate approach.

Here’s what you can expect from financial coaching with Mapalo Makhu:

1. Personalized Vision: Financial coaching is not about fitting into a one-size-fits-all mold. Mapalo works with you to understand your unique circumstances, aspirations, and challenges. Together, you’ll co-create a personalized vision for your financial future that aligns with your values and priorities.

2. Goal-Centric Approach: Instead of fixating on financial products, the coaching journey revolves around setting and achieving meaningful goals. Mapalo will guide you in defining clear and achievable objectives that resonate with your highest priorities. These goals become the compass that directs your financial decisions.

3. Emphasis on Empowerment: Financial coaching is an empowering experience. It’s about equipping you with the knowledge and tools to make informed decisions, fostering a sense of confidence and control over your financial destiny. Mapalo acts as a supportive guide, helping you navigate the complexities of budgeting, debt management, investing, and more.

4. Understanding Your Financial Story: Money is often tied to emotions, values, and personal experiences. Financial coaching involves delving into the narratives that shape your relationship with money. This compassionate exploration helps uncover any limiting beliefs, fears, or patterns that may be hindering your financial well-being.

5. Safe and Judgment-Free Space: Mapalo provides a safe and judgment-free space for open dialogue. This is not about scrutinizing past financial decisions; it’s about understanding them, learning from them, and moving forward with newfound clarity and purpose.

6. Long-Term Transformation: Financial coaching isn’t a quick fix; it’s a journey towards long-term transformation. By addressing the root causes and empowering you with skills and insights, Mapalo helps you build a solid foundation for sustained financial well-being.

In essence, financial coaching with Mapalo Makhu is a genuine, compassionate, and holistic exploration of your financial life. It’s an invitation to discover your financial story, set meaningful goals, and embark on a journey towards a more confident and empowered relationship with your finances.

From my experience, everyone needs a Finance accountability partner even if it’s for a short period. Prior the Bootcamp I always thought my money habits were fairly good, what transpired was that yes they were great but I had areas of complete carelessness and ignorance. For example, it was during our one-on-ones with Mapalo where I first found out how much interest is actually attached to my credit card, which was completely shocking. With her help going though my employment benefits – it was only then that I learnt that life insurance was part of my package. Coming to the home loan, it was interesting to realise how the addition of a few rands reduces your payment years significantly. My biggest lesson was not borrowing money to friends unless you will be okay if it never came back, so fully assessing the situation before you commit to helping anyone. – Paballo Pule

What an authentic experience it was being on the Money Bootcamp with Mapalo as the financial coach. I use the word authentic as I realised how real this was, the moment I had to share my financial details with a stranger , something I have never done before. From the review and tasks, it transpired that my handling of money was not the correct way to do it. Mapalo indicated that I didn’t invest in the right products and as a results I ended up not enjoying the fruits of my investments. I then transferred my TFSA from the bank to a wealth management institution and I can confidently say my money is now working for me . I am grateful for the insight gained from Mapalo.- Phyllis Monyake
