Welcome fellow Money Magician!
My name is Vangile Makwakwa and I'm the author of Heart, Mind and Money and the Holistic Wealth Manifesto.
And I spent most of my life feeling scared of money and believing I was cursed with money, until I made the conscious decision to start healing my relationship with money and my money trauma.
Between 2011 and 2014, I went from using credit cards to pay off other credit cards and spending every penny in my bank account as soon as it hit said bank account, to paying off US$60,000 (R700,000 at the time) in debt, became a home-owner, published Heart, Mind & Money, was featured in various media and started a side hustle.
In 2015, I embarked on a new journey as a #suitcase entrepreneur and freelancer and got a yoga teaching certificate as I focused on turning my side hustle into a full time business.
Fast forward to now - I’ve lived in over 8 countries (USA, South Africa, the UK, South Korea, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Sri Lanka) and travelled to way more countries and continents over the years as I built Wealthy Money.
I currently live in Sri Lanka semi permanently.
I've turned the side hustle into a full time business (Wealthy Money) that pays me a monthly salary, built a team, have created multiple income streams within the business, am often fully booked months in advance in my coaching business and have even launched a real estate podcast to help others (and myself) figure out how to retire early and create a passive income through real estate.
I've been able to buy a second property cash! Yes, me - the woman who had to spend every penny in her bank account, was able to save enough money and let it sit in her bank account for months, so she could buy a property cash.
My life is by no means perfect (I have a public meltdown at least once a week) but, I have managed to figure things out when it comes to my spending habits and I've managed to help other people do the same.
I spent the first quarter of my life following the path everyone told me was necessary for success and I believed them
I got a Finance Degree from the University of Cape Town and an MBA from the Simmons School of Management in Boston, MA.
So you can only imagine my shock when I found myself well educated, unemployed and heavily in debt long before turning 30!
I had poor spending habits, a failing start-up company, was alienated from family and friends and I had a very unhealthy relationship with money.
I'd spent years working hard to advance my education and move up the career ladder. But instead of fulfilment, it left me broke, sick, miserable, desperate, and feeling very alone.
One day, things got so bad, I had a panic attack on the way to the bank. I couldn't face my bank account and I didn't want to deal with money so ended up sitting on the pavement, in Boston, MA, struggling to breathe.
That was my breaking point - I decided to change my life and go on my own personal finance journey.
I threw out the rule book and started meditating, did yoga, read behavioral finance theses, read psychology books and went vegan.
In the process I learned that I was in a relationship with money, that I carried my emotions in my body and that my emotions about money were affecting my financial behavior.
I had this deep realization that to change my finances I needed to become emotionally and spiritually intelligent and focus on healing myself.
The more I was able to feel into my body, sit with my emotions whenever I handled money, trace where those emotions came from and start healing my emotional response to money, the more I was able to change my relationship with money and pay off US$60,000 in 4 years, using South African Rands (even though my debt was un US Dollars and Pounds).
I started sharing my work with other people and started coaching others and what started off as documentation and a research project, turned into my book, Heart, Mind & Money.
