We tell ourselves a lot of stories about money. We think money only affects those who have money. We think there’s a single right answer to our financial situation. We think there’s a difference between managing our own finances and that of small business. In this webinar by Just One Lap CEO Kristia van Heerden, we dispel these myths and show you how to do it all yourself.

She will be joined by Hilary Mangwanya from Absa Retail and Business Bank and Jeff Gable,  Absa Chief Economist for further insights on business finance and business survival in COVID-19.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to arm yourself for good financial decision-making
  • How to think about money when you don’t have any
  • How the principles of managing personal and business finance are similar
  • Tools for small business survival in COVID-19
