“Where we seem to have a challenge, is when it comes to being forward thinking for the sake of our personal progression, where the forward thinking is for our daring ambitions and goals. We somehow seem to temporarily lose the gifting. Remember, being forward thinking implies being proactive and not reactive.” ~ Mrs Bwanya

“Take me for example, I do value loyalty. I can be loyal to a fault, to my own detriment. My loyalty causes me to be so devoted to a point where I will set myself to keep others warm, to a point where I do not want to let down those to whom I would have willingly committed to.” she added

The event concluded with a Raffle Draw, with attendees winning various prizes including Shalom Govero’s book on financial literacy and hampers. The grand prize was an all-expenses-paid holiday courtesy of Easy Stay Holidays, with other attendees receiving discount vouchers for Timeless Beauty Spa.

The event provided educational and therapeutic respite from daily routines, complemented by a delightful culinary experience.

“The biggest highlight for me was around the intricacies of will writing and estate planning.
It was a reality check of how being unprepared for your death can leave a trail of confusion or disaster for those that remain if you are not organized and clear.” added Makoni
