Do you know what? I want you to be insured. That’s true and this is not because I’m affiliated with an insurance company. I’ll be honest, it opened the doors for me to deeply appreciate the value of life insurance. The sole reason is that I came from a household that the breadwinner, my father nor mother, is not insured. I personally experienced all the emotional pain and financial hardship from taking the role that I am not ready yet. And I believe that no one has to experience the same if only breadwinners like you can see its value. [continue reading…]
I started saving money in a bank, just like you, because it’s a good place to keep it safe. But then I realized that there’s something wrong. Imagine for every hundred thousand that I have in my savings account it only earned Php 250. Oh, did I say that withholding tax will still be deducted from it? So I have decided to just complete my emergency fund and after that, I will invest the rest. If you are reading this then I guess we are on the same page. [continue reading…]

I came to see the book called Break Free by Don Soriano while roaming around a bookstore. The design was too simple for my taste but it was also too intriguing so even I’m not a fan of reading books, I still considered getting a copy. Anyway, who wouldn’t want to be an employer from just being an employee in 3 years time or even less which is the idea the book is introducing to us. Good thing I told my manager, Raymund Camat (MoneyTalkPh), about it not knowing he has a copy until he lent it to me. Yippee! So here I am now making a review of “Break Free” and I’ll tell you later if it’s a good buy or goodbye. [continue reading…]
The past week I was asked to host not just one but two Christmas Party in a single week. I was like really? Me hosting an event is the last thing I would like to do this Christmas. Geez, no one was taking the role so I guess it is really meant for me though I’m quite hesitant, I accepted it. After the events, it was both exhausting and extremely fun. I never thought I could ever stand in front of a large crowd as I did. Maybe I wasn’t good enough as this was only my first time but their affirmation on my new found skill, should I even call it a skill hehe, is priceless. [continue reading…]
