Olwethu sits down with Daphne Rampersad who is a Senior Specialist in Financial Planning at Liberty. They discuss ways to structure one’s finances and money to make sure that your family is taken care of when you are no longer able do so.
Too many of us don’t plan for things such as death or incapacitation but if we think about them in the context of making sure our children and loved one’s don’t have to suffer unnecessarily- then it definitely pushes us to do the sensible thing as soon as possible.
On this episode Olwethu sits down with Raelene Rorke to discuss raising girls vs raising boys. Is there a real difference between the two or is each child a unique experience all unto themselves? They share insights and contrast their experiences as the mothers of three boys (Olwethu) and three girls (Raelene).
We met Raelene Rorke as the young lady who took the crown of Miss Teen SA in 2004 but she has long since flourished into a business woman, wife an mother of three girls (one in-utero at the time of recording) .
Life and love has taken Raelene all over the world but she still made time for a heartfelt and insightful Sit Down despite the 6 hour difference.
