Freda’s aim in writing her soon to be released book, is to educate people on the culture of investing and in doing so, provide them with the knowledge to become the best investor they can be … a AAA investor.
According to Freda - ‘I have created a book for today’s new investors that have emerged over the years. They are the investors who just managed to save a little here and there and have a portfolio as a result, or those like the “mum and dad" investors who took part in the government privatisations but have no clear strategy about what they should do with their holdings. Even the “potential" investor – wanting to start investing but doesn’t know where or how to invest will find this book of immense value.’
In her high-octane presentation, Freda shares her AAA formula that helps you manage your life like a corporation, with heart, soul and strategy. It all gets down to having an Awareness of where you are, maintaining the right Attitude and Achieving what you planned.
Freda compels people to seek and find their purpose among the distractions and embark on it with passion. It’s easy to do and easy not to do. Freda shows you how to find your passion and purpose.
