Are you someone who…

* Is so busy managing business finances that personal finances are a bit of a shambles?

* Wants to quit your job but has no idea how to build up enough money to get on your feet as a freelancer or entrepreneur?

* Has no idea how to manage the feast-and-famine nature of irregular income?

* Doesn’t have a backup financial plan in case your business fails?

* Curls up and cries every time they hear the words pension fund / retirement annuity / investment / medical aid / tax / debit order / money?

* Glazes over when it comes to insurance options and what should be insured and what shouldn’t when you’re an entrepreneur?

This workshop is for you!

Sam Beckbessinger wrote the best-selling book “How To Manage Your Money Like a F*cking Grownup” (https://www.likeafuckinggrownup.com/) and now she’s helping us become wiser with our hard-earned cash by avoiding common financial mistakes so many of us make. Future Females presents a hands-on workshop, where Sam will introduce us to the biggest personal finance risks for small business owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs and how to avoid them. She’s funny, she swears like a trooper and she’s made every money mistake already so you don’t have to.


When not running her own fintech startup, writes and speaks about how the South African middle class can get hold of their finances, and take active steps to build their wealth — something every one of us can and should do. An advocate against financial bro talk designed to mislead the monetary layman, Sam broaches topics like investing, cashflow and compound interest with her unapologetic sense of humour and insight based on years in working as a user experience designer in the financial services industry. She has also been a children’s book author, a startup coach, and was a 2014 Mandela Washington Fellow at Yale University, where she got to high-five Barack Obama (true story).


The bestselling book 'Manage Your Money Like a F*cking Grownup' is a comprehensive and easy to understand playbook for navigating personal finance as a young South African. Filled exercises, flowcharts and informative illustrations (also: kittens), the book aims to be empowering and hopeful, whether you’re 25 or 65 years old. Books will be on sale at R200 a book.
