'Masters of Money'. Behind-the-Scenes

I chatted to KC Rottok Chesaina about his recently published book ‘Masters of Money’. You can see our chat about the book and stories in it here.

I chatted to KC a few years back about his CA(SA) qualification journey, you can read that here.

This discussion was a behind-the-scenes discussion, covering some of these topics:

  • Why did he write this book?
  • How much money is he making from it?!
  • What’s the longer-term value of writing this book? 

What's in the book?

KC interviewed CFO’s from some of the top companies in South Africa. The book is a collection of their stories, backgrounds, experiences and strategic lessons. It’s really easy reading, and he approached the chats from a holistic perspective (ie: life, family, personal AND work elements). There are some great, relatable, and surprising stories in there.

FEATURED COMPANIES INCLUDE MTN South Africa, JSE, Old Mutual, FirstRand, Capitec, Nedbank, Investec, Sanlam, Redefine Properties, Liberty, Discovery, Aspen Pharmacare, Life Healthcare, Woolworths, Pick n Pay, Massmart, Nampak, Sasol, Impala Platinum, Barloworld, Anglo American Platinum, Harmony Gold, Kumba Iron Ore, PPC, Exxaro, Tourvest, Mr Price and Nando’s.

Why did you write this book?

To see a book that YOU wrote on the shelves in bookstores must be an AWESOME feeling! 

We chatted about why KC wrote the book… you’re going to LOVE his answer… you have to check it out!

The 'network' element

We all know that ‘networking’ is important… 

I LOVE KC’s honesty about why he decided to write this! You’re going to love it… and again, broadens our ideas of what we can do with our qualifications!

Show me the money!!

I KNOW you’re asking yourself… “How much money can you make off of this?!”

So, I asked KC 🙂

Take-aways for my audience

I want students and young professionals to consider their skills, interests and opportunities to leverage their professional work in ways they may not have considered before. KC is a great example of this!

The opportunities and possibilities for your professional qualification can be SO much broader than you might think!
