Foreword Written by Margaret Hirsch
(Co-founder and Chief Operations Officer, Hirsch Group)
Ronel has written a very practical, basic, down to earth, workable, easy to understand book that explains how money works and how to make your money work for you instead of you working for it.
Most people spend their lives chasing money but like anything else, whatever you chase will run away from you. This book teaches you in a practical way how to get your finances in order and help you to live the life that you want. Most people strive for financial freedom – what a wonderful feeling to have enough money at the end of the month and have enough money to buy anything; not only what you want but to also help others.
If you follow the simple guidelines in this book I know that you will get there.
Financially Fit and Wealthy has been awarded with the AfriCAN Authors 2019 Award in the Financial Literacy category.

“You are responsible for your financial wellbeing and your financial wellbeing has a direct impact on how you experience life. Empower yourself by equipping yourself with comprehensive financial knowledge to be able to make effective financial decisions. If you experience financial difficulty and stress then make a decision to actively do something about it so that you are not financially strained for the rest of your life. You will never regret taking that decision. If you are already doing well financially, focus on how you can improve your financial wellbeing even further.”
The book explains why a budget is crucial and provides tips to practically apply effective budgeting in your personal life.
“A person who wants to participate in a sport needs a fitness base as an entry level. The fitness base provides the foundation on which any goal can be built, irrespective of the goal being to lose weight, to enjoy a sport or to perform and excel in that sport. The more solid the fitness base, the easier it is to achieve the set goals. Budgeting is similar to a fitness base. Budgeting provides an important foundation on which any financial goal can be built. Effective budgeting principles are important for both businesses as well as personal finances.”
The book uses concepts and processes you can relate to. This makes it more fun to read and easy to understand.
“Once you have a strong fitness base and have reduced your body fat/body weight, it is time to start building muscle. Building muscle is essential to become stronger as well as to achieve your ultimate fitness goals and look your best. The same principles apply in the process of becoming financially fit as in achieving physical fitness. Firstly, compile a budget and apply effective expense management techniques to provide you with a solid financial base. Secondly, focus on repaying your debt to cut out the additional weight/fat that puts a lot of financial stress on you. Thirdly, start saving and investing as you want to start adding muscle to your wealth portfolio and become stronger financially.”
