#StartOver with @22seven

This is an interesting campaign [sponsored]. Coming from a brand i’ve been watching over the last few months grow from strength to strength. Highlighting two things that get all of us excited: money and technology!

You might have seen the Tweets yesterday talking about the big SORRY in the sky. People all over JHB were talking about this…

What you might have missed is why.

Apparently your hard earned cash-dollas want to say sorry. Money itself makes the first move and asks South Africans to accept its apology and rekindle their relationships and #startover with the help of 22seven.

I was sent this letter myself from 22seven just yesterday as well.

The amount of young people i see and know carrying immense debt at a young age scares me. And not student loan debt. Living beyond your means debt. I grew up in a family riddled with debt. My parents were not stupid, nor were they irresponsible. They just never had a financial education about the real life consequences of debt. I’m always been tight with my money, and i think that mentality is based on a fear of debt.

And that is why i feel financial education is important, to teach people the bad and the good about money. 22seven is a money management tool that helps you do more with your money. It helps you to clearly understand where your money is, in easily understandable graphs and visuals.

It’s a very cool app. Whether or not you feel you need help managing your money i recommend you have a look around. If not just to explore the tech behind it!
