This is the word my friend and I used to tell ourselves by the time we have stumbled on the words FINANCIAL LITERACY.
You know why?
If only we have met these words earlier in our lives and have followed experts’ advice on growing money, we should have been millionaires by now.
For more than a decade of teaching overseas, it is very shameful to admit to myself that I haven’t been saving. When I meet or chat with friends, it’s very typical of them to ask “Ang dami mo na sigurong ipon, noh?” and it is very embarrassing to tell them the truth that I have none.
The reason for this is I didn’t know how to handle money.
I deposit most of my hard earned money in my savings account
and because I was FINANCIALLY ILLITERATE,
it was only the maintaining balance that was all left before the next pay day comes.
The good thing now is I have tried very much to CHANGE my bad money handling habits and I am always excited to talk about my PROGRESS with my friend and now, to you as well.
I thank the LORD for poking me to start changing my ways.
He poked me on the eye and reminded me that
I will not be strong all my life to work and earn for my everyday living, that having a job is not forever.
I Started Discovering Ways
From that day on, I have watched some motivational speakers on personal development,
on money management and money growing on YouTube.
I have also joined the Club and I have been learning a lot from the inspirational ebooks and simple explanations of how stock market investing works.
When I read success stories of those who started earlier than me, those who became aware ahead than me, I used to say “I wish I had started earlier” that’s why it pays much to keep learning and yearning for ways to financially succeed.
I Started To Share My Journey
If this is your first time to hear the words financial literacy, start reading and learning about it today.
I have written an ebook that I give it out for Free. You can get by clicking on this link >>>FREE Ebook
If you’ve heard it before but haven’t been taking action, today is the time to take action.
The earlier you start the better because time and action do make the difference.
Don’t be one of those onlookers next year that says, “Sayang”, I wish I took the FIRST steps years ago.

[…] The brutal lesson here is, there is no right month or year to start saving and investing. Because the fact is we all have major expenses to cover every month and so you cannot let saving and investing to be your last priority. You must include this in your monthly budget. This is the painful lesson I have learned few years ago. You can read why >>It is always best to start early here<< […]
