What’s Your Money Personality?, Vangile Makwakwa, Pan Macmillan South Africa, ISBN: 9781770108868 

Eye-opening. Empowering. Engaging.

When it comes to your financial affairs, do you actively take charge of your household’s budget, tend to ignore invoices until they pile up, or engage in unrestrained spending in pursuit of a thrill in times of stress?

This first-of-its-kind book explores and unpacks the intricate world of money archetypes in families in South Africa.

Author, Vangile Makwakwa delves into 10 common money personalities (archetypes) to help us understand how these dynamics can affect our relationship with money.

With eye-opening anecdotes, relatable case studies and expert insights, readers can discover the secrets behind their unique money personality and unravel the intricate web of cultural, generational and personal influences that shape financial behaviours.

‘It’s not just about personal change; it’s about influencing the entire family unit, rewriting our financial narratives, and creating paths to generational wealth. [While] my primary audience is Black and Brown people, particularly women, who often seek help with the emotional aspects of money, this book also offers a holistic perspective on money, the collective impact it has on our families, and how understanding our distinct money personalities can change our behavioural patterns.’

What’s Your Money Personality? will change the way you view and manage your individual and family finances.
