Cars sit very high on a lot of people’s wish lists. We know because we get asked about car ownership at 50-70% of our corporate events. And it’s consistently creeping into our social media DMs (screenshots below).
We all have our dream cars, and very strong perspectives on whether Mercedes is better than BMW, or why V8’s are only respectable vehicle, or whether it makes sense to “upgrade” cars or just save up like crazy for the ultimate car we’re hoping for.
While these dreams are common (and fun!), you don't want your dream car to take over your life – from the guzzler eating up all your salary in fuel costs, to the nightmare of the car being repossessed for lack of payment and being listed in the newspaper for auction. Not to mention the “graveyard of dreams”, when you walk in to any mechanics yard, are met by rows of abandoned vehicles, because their owners are unable to come up with the money to repair/maintain them.
As part of helping you create the life you want, we’re here to help you not end up like this!
We took our experience from here:
Your instructor's profile:
Which you might have gotten a taste of when we were featured here:
And built you an easy-to-use guide to help you make the best choices in buying and owning a car - whether it’s your first or tenth. That way you can both afford and enjoy your car (which we think is a fantastic combination!)
We’ve talked to bank loan officers, car dealers and mechanics to understand the most common mistakes people make. We then combined this with our understanding of psychology and finance, and distilled it all into this guide – Africa’s Pocket – Car Ownership
While we have build a course we’re truly proud of and many people have found useful, we recognise that our Car Ownership course might not be a good fit for you if you:
Three key differences:
The best car and car decision for you is likely very different than the best decision for the next person. For one of you the best solution might be to move closer to work instead of buying a car. For the next person, it could actually be buying the luxury car of their dreams. Our goal is to equip you to take control of your car ownership experience and build the life you want.
Yes! The principles, strategies and tactics you need to consider in order to make a sound decision on car ownership are universal. That said, your income level does have an impact - higher income simply means a more capacity to invest today. The most important thing is to get started and follow the principles we’ve laid out.
We recommend spending at least 4 hours over the course of 1-2 weeks on this course for maximum benefit. That’s enough time to watch the videos and implement the action items for you to find the best fit for yourself.
This is NOT a live presentation. It's an online video course that you can take at your own pace.
Car Ownership is an online, self-paced video course. You’ll be able to learn and practice in the privacy of your own home, at your own pace. The supplementary materials, such as illustrative guides and financial models to plug in will help you along. If you do get stuck or have questions, you get access to contact the Africa’s Pocket team, and we will privately answer your questions 1-on-1.
Car Ownership is built by taking the best insights and strategies in the market and distilling them so that anyone can understand them. We avoid using jargon (and translate things so you know what jargon-speaking people are saying). Regardless of your current comfort with money/numbers, you’ll be able to understand and keep up. We’ve also built plug-and-play tools for you and shown you how to understand the outputs of each. That way you’ll always have them ready and can hold your own when you’re discussing and evaluating investing in the future!
Don't worry — the course comes with year-long access so you can take a break from the material if you’ve travelled, are on holiday, or simply get swamped with work/life for a few days. Interruptions happen, we understand. Car Ownership will ALWAYS be here for you when you're ready to dive back in.
At Africa’s Pocket, we’re constantly striving to give you the best tools and courses possible to equip you to build the life you want. We know that when we build with you in mind, and give you tools and courses that actually work, you’re more likely to be a customer for life and tell others about us. And together we can make a little dent on the world, so that people are no longer stressed about money.
We understand that navigating through financial services and products can be a confusing process. It can be hard to distinguish what’s a scam from what is authentic well-tested material. Therefore, we decided to make it easier for you by eliminating the financial risk.
