Need the inspiration to save? The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews “Supersaver Julia” at around 7:15 pm tonight.
Personal Finance Feature: Julia - The super saver
Every year in July (since 2013) The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews supersaver Julia (and her personal finance advisor Warren Ingram).
This year is no exception as Bruce engages Julia for the Personal Finance Feature.
Nice to be back on the show for the eighth year running. It has been a huge journey. I gave up my corporate job just over six months ago, around September last year, to start a business.

Even though it has been a harrowing and big test of resilience for the past few months, I'm still happy with my decision.Julia
It's been brutal for everyone in the tourism industry. I'm lucky in the sense that I don't have a lot of capital invested in the business. I didn't have a lot of fixed costs and I think my colleagues in the industry who have a lot of fixed costs already suffering right now.Julia
Julia's business is still operating and she has also been moving clients to next. She has been able to spend time with family.
She hasn't touched her JSE account much.
Our money is both in the house, the JSE and a very large emergency fund.
