What did your childhood teach you about money?

My mom always said: "Money does not grow on trees."

What was your first job, and how much were you paid?

I worked at Telkom as an assistant and I got paid R500 a week. To this day I don't know what my job entailed.

Are you an easy tipper?

Tipping is not easy, but somebody's got to do it. Good service deserves a good tip.

Are you responsible with money?

I try. I am a work in progress.

Have you ever been really hard up?

Yes. I know what it's like when money is too tight to mention - being broke makes you humble. I've learnt to appreciate and respect the value of money.

Are you a saver or a spender?

A spender who is learning how to save, thanks to Mpho from Liberty Life.

What is your biggest money weakness?

My mom, sneakers, PS3 games, day spas, good wine and good food.

What has been your biggest extravagance?

A shopping spree overseas, and when I bought my A4 cabriolet "Edwardo".

What is the one thing you wish you had never bought?

Sometimes I wish I never bought my Tractor DJ equipment at the price I got it for - I should have shopped around first.
