I have partnered up with the Truth About Money – an initiative of 1Life Insurance to give away TEN short courses FOR FREE to any of you around South Africa on Financial Education because I am passionate about skills development and most people just don’t know how to save and eliminate debt! Even better is that the application process is simple and can be done online.
HOW DO I WIN?
Winning is simple. All you need to do is post a comment below in the comments section (by using your email address) stating why you need or would love to win one of the 10 courses. Make sure your motivation catches my eye. Please include your age in the comment. You then need to share the post. If you are one of the 10 winners I will be posting your names on my website so keep your eyes glued for a new post and if you are one of the 10 selected winners, a member of the Truth About Money will give you a call to guide you through the simple application process using the promotional code Danilo Acquisto so that they know you are one of my winners.
*PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL COMMENTS WILL BE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE. DO NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WILL PUT YOUR SECURITY AT RISK. ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU DO NOT WISH TO SHARE IN THE COMMENTS YOU CAN EMAIL TO ME DIRECTLY USING THE EMAIL ADDRESS ON MY WEBSITE
Why Do I Even Need This?
The fact of the matter is that in the current job market, just having skills is not enough. You need your CV to stand out from the rest. In South Africa we are also facing a debt crisis where families are so deep in debt and have no idea how to get out. This is even more scary as you need to learn all of this while you are still young so that you don’t end up wasting money and getting credit cards that get you into debt. This course will equip you to make good financial decisions and could even help you build your assets so you can get that car or house you have always wanted

Do I Have To Travel Far And Often To Complete The Course?
One of the best things about the course is that it is all online and shouldn’t take you longer than between 6 and 8 hours and is held at any Boston College nationwide. Once you have applied and are chosen as one of the lucky 10 people to have been accepted, a representative from Boston will give you a call to help you locate your nearest Boston campus. Then the rest is easy – you just go to that Boston whenever you have a few hours to spare and do the course online – it’s that simple!
Who Can Apply?
The course is only available for anyone over the age of 18. You can only apply if you have a valid South African ID
Do I Walk Away With A Qualification?
At the end of the course, all 10 of you will walk away with a certificate of completion which is great for your CV especially if you are struggling to find new jobs – extra courses makes you more attractive to potential employers
How Long Do I Have To Apply?
I am only subsidising 10 people to go on the course so the quicker you apply the better your chances of being one of the 10. This coming Friday 31 August I will be going through all the submissions.
