Smart Woman - How To Gain Financial Independence And Create Wealth (Paperback): Sylvia Walker Smart Woman - How To Gain Financial Independence And Create Wealth (Paperback)

While some women seem to excel at making their money work for them, others battle from pay day to pay day. With this book, we tap into what these ‘smart women’ know that the rest of us can learn from.

Smart Woman will provide the necessary insights into how our personal view of money impacts on our financial behaviour and decisions; reveal who is competing for our money (retailers, online marketers, etc.); and look at why it is so hard to find money to invest (the first step to getting rich is having money to invest – money makes money). It also covers how major life events, such as marriage and divorce, impact on us and how we can make smart financial decisions at these times.

Smart Woman will show the reader how she can take control of her financial life by spending smarter, tackling debt and setting goals. It explains how money is made and how the financial markets work, as well as the universal principles behind growing wealth, irrespective of where one invests.

A must-read for every woman, at any age, who is serious about building wealth and obtaining financial independence.

What makes a woman kill? And how does it feel to share a cell with a murderer?

Carla van der Spuy visits four correctional facilities for females across South Africa and gets inside the heads of women who committed violent crimes. She visits the babies born behind bars, celebrates Christmas with the inmates and chats face to face with women who killed with knives, guns and the help of hit men, as well as a cleptomaniac and a prostitute. Women with blood on their hands.

What went so terribly wrong in their lives? And is there a person behind the criminal?

Wat laat vroue moor? En hoe voel dit om ’n sel met moordenaresse te deel? Carla van der Spuy besoek vier vrouetronke reg oor Suid-Afrika en klim in die koppe van vroue wat geweldsmisdade gepleeg het. Sy kuier by die babas gebore agter tralies, vier Kersfees in die tronk en gesels van aangesig tot aangesig met mesmoordenaresse, huurmoordenaresse, ’n kleptomaan en prostituut. Vrouens met bloed op hulle hande. Wat het so verskriklik skeef in hul lewens geloop? En is daar ’n mens agter die misdadiger?

R421 R334 Discovery Miles 3 340 Save R87 (21%) In stock

There is a complex interaction between public relations and journalism, and students of these subjects need to know about both. Dynamics of public relations and journalism fourth edition unravels and explores these two worlds to enhance the journalistic skills of public relations students, at the same time providing students of media studies with invaluable insights into the complex, multidisciplinary field of public relations. This book highlights the interdependency of the two professions and explains – clearly, simply and succinctly – the need for their smooth synergy. In this fourth edition, chapters have been updated to help readers stay abreast of current trends in public relations and journalism. The advent of social media and its growing role in these areas has been one of the most significant changes since the publication of the previous edition of this book. Here, the authors discuss the influences, roles, functions and appropriate application of social media. In addition, a new chapter on corporate social media introduces social media as a public relations function, describing the attributes of social media engagement and the popular social networks that may be used in the corporate arena. The authors draw on their considerable academic and practical experience to give clear, concise guidelines for enhancing media relations through effective public relations practice.

When Daniel Baxter, the medical director of a large community health centre in New York City, accepted an invitation to work in Botswana, he hardly knew where to find the country on a map. Yet he set out nonetheless, naively confident that he would do good by bringing his first-world expertise to help in the roll-out of Africa’s first HIV/AIDS treatment programme. But Baxter’s good intentions were quickly overwhelmed by the reality of AIDS in Africa, his misguided altruism engulfed by the sea of need around him. Lifted up by Botswana’s remarkable and forgiving people and by the country’s majestic beauty, Baxter soldiered on. His memorable encounters with those living with HIV/AIDS – their unfathomable woes assuaged by their oft-repeated declaration ''But God is good!'' – profoundly changed the way he thought about himself and his role as a doctor. Eight years later, when Baxter finally left Africa to return to the United States, he realised he was not so much the giver as the recipient of a great human gift. Compelling, humorous, courageous and often heart-breaking, One Life at a Time documents the extraordinary experiences of a fallible but compassionate doctor working at the front line of HIV/AIDS care in Botswana.

Credit, and its flip side, debt, emerges as a fundamental lens to understand the workings of both social mobility and economic disenfranchisement, precariously inter-twined in the New South Africa. James makes complex theory accessible, combining it with page turning ethnography - utterly captivating! - Dinah Rajak, Senior Lecturer in Anthropology, University of Sussex and author of In Good Company: An Anatomy of Corporate Social Responsibility South Africa's national project of financial inclusion aims to extend credit to black South Africans as a critical aspect of abolishing apartheid's legacy. Money from Nothing explores the contradictory dynamics inherent in this project, and captures the lived experience of indebtedness for many millions who attempt to improve their positions (or merely sustain existing livelihoods) in this complex economy. Deborah James shows the varied ways in which access to credit is intimately bound up with identity and status-making. The precarious nature of aspirations of upward mobility and the economic relations of debt which sustain people is revealed by the shadowy side of indebtedness and potential for new forms of oppression and exclusion which can accompany projects of upliftment. She reflects on the apparent absurdity of a situation where consumers' borrowing is, on the one hand, checked by being blacklisted with the credit bureaux, yet borrowers clamour for a `credit information amnesty' while lenders continue to lend with impunity. James concludes that the paternalism of a system in which consumers' bank accounts are under `external control' intensifies the `advantage to creditor' principle that has long underpinned South African consumer law.

Are recent bank and financial scandals the work of a few ‘bad apples’ or an inevitable result of a financial system rotten to its core? In Barometer of Fear Alexis Stenfors guides us through the shadowy world of modern banking, providing an insider’s account of the secret practices – including the manipulation of foreign exchange rates – which have allowed banks to profit from systematic deception. Containing remarkable and often shocking insights derived from his own experiences in the dealing room, as well as his spectacular fall from grace at Merrill Lynch, Barometer of Fear draws back the curtain on a realm that for too long has remained hidden from public view.

If you drive through Mpumalanga with an eye on the landscape flashing by, you may see, near the sides of the road and further away on the hills above and in the valleys below, fragments of building in stone as well as sections of stone-walling breaking the grass cover. Endless stone circles, set in bewildering mazes and linked by long stone passages, cover the landscape stretching from Ohrigstad to Carolina, connecting over 10 000 square kilometres of the escarpment into a complex web of stone-walled homesteads, terraced fields and linking roads. Oral traditions recorded in the early twentieth century named the area Bokoni – the country of the Koni people. Few South Africans or visitors to the country know much about these settlements, and why today they are deserted and largely ignored. A long tradition of archaeological work which might provide some of the answers remains cloistered in universities and the knowledge vacuum has been filled by a variety of exotic explanations – invoking ancient settlers from India or even visitors from outer space – that share a common assumption that Africans were too primitive to have created such elaborate stone structures. Forgotten World defies the usual stereotypes about backward African farming methods and shows that these settlements were at their peak between 1500 and 1820, that they housed a substantial population, organised vast amounts of labour for infrastructural development, and displayed extraordinary levels of agricultural innovation and productivity. The Koni were part of a trading system linked to the coast of Mozambique and the wider world of Indian Ocean trade beyond. Forgotten World tells the story of Bokoni through rigorous historical and archaeological research, and lavishly illustrates it with stunning photographic images.

Despite increasing visibility of same-sex relationships in South Africa, there remains a distinct lack of research and public discussion around same-sex family practices and related legislative and social issues. This new collection of essays, interviews and images seeks to address this critical information gap by both capturing recent scholarship and documenting the challenges and experiences of same-sex partnered families. By bringing together work from diverse academic and professional disciplines – as well as visual materials from two recent exhibitions – this unique collection will play a crucial role in promoting further research into LGBTI families in South Africa. Topics covered include the theory and context of LGBTI families in South Africa; the legislative framework; media representations of same-sex families; assisted reproduction technology – challenges, experiences and understandings; parenting practices; disclosure practices within families; and intimate partner violence.
