Hello there, my name is Manyara Kirago and I would like to welcome you to Financial Life Academy. I believe that the state of your finances has a profound impact on all areas of your life. Whether your mission in life is to be a leader in the community, to spread the gospel or simply to provide adequately for your family, lack of financial ability will seriously hamper or even cripple your effectiveness. Financial challenges are also the leading cause of marriage breakups, stress related illness and a low quality of life.
Unfortunately, personal financial management is not in the curriculum of the educational institutions most of us go through. It is ironic that we are trained in various professions to enable us generate an income but are not taught how to manage what we earn. In fact, there is an aura of mystery as to how to achieve financial success. Beyond the vague admonitions from parents that one should save for a rainy day and live within their means, most people do not have any meaningful and actionable guidelines on how to successfully manage their money. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, successful personal financial management is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.
The mission of Financial Life Academy is to fill this vacuum of information, education and direction. With courses and coaching in financial planning, debt elimination, business startup, investing and more, we hope to be valuable partner in your financial life. Please remember that building a financially successful and secure life is a process, not an event. There is no magic pill, or magic investment that you will take or make and you an overnight, long term success.
So, plan to be here for the long haul and I promise that we will keep giving you relevant, actionable and constantly updated content. Once again, thank you for joining us and please be liberal with your comments. Also, do not hesitate to ask me for help if ever you feel stuck, I am here for you. Thank you and I look forward to working to help build your financial future!
