At TribFire Studios, we don’t have a ‘reading corner,’ we have a reading lounge. Sitting pretty in the best spot in the office this week are Treza and Sibo with their latest book club reads.
“What happened to you?” by Oprah Winfrey and Bruce Perry
Growing up through trauma and difficulty can leave scars on your heart that will influence every decision you make. I felt that it was time to look at my own trauma and be intentional about healing. Adulting is hard even under the best circumstances and I want to be someone I can look up to. So far, this book has shown me that we are all broken in some way. We should be gentle with ourselves and with others. Instead of “What’s wrong with you?” we can ask “What happened to you?”
Oprah speaks about her own early experiences and how they shaped her. The book focuses on understanding people, behaviour, and ourselves. It allows us to understand our pasts and open the door to resilience and healing.
“Through this lens we can build a renewed sense of personal self-worth and ultimately recalibrate our responses to circumstances, situations, and relationships. It is, in other words, the key to reshaping our very lives.”—Oprah Winfrey
“You’re not broke, you’re Pre-Rich”
I was immediately drawn to this quirky title. Then I saw that the author is from South Africa. I love that this is a finance advice book for young Southern Africans written by a young Southern African woman! And she’s an award-winning millennial personal finance expert and the founder of www.womanandfinance.co.za, too.
The book is candid and direct, some examples are pay yourself first, don’t delegate money matters, the time is now! Anyone can take the advice she gives and apply them in their own lives. However, Makhu is writing specifically for women who might not have been exposed to investing and personal finance. She calls women “the bearers of generational wealth.”
“Even the smallest education/ information on personal finance can make a huge difference in women’s financial future and wealth, after all, women are the bearers of generational wealth.”– Mapalo Makhu
