Sun Life FUNday: Financial Journey and Learning by Ms. Katrina Loring

The first part of Sun Life FUNday was talked out by Miss Katrina Loring about her journey as a young entrepreneur. She shared her previous businesses and how she managed to earn from them. She shared how she came to realize that by aging older, she had to distinguish really the needs from the wants.

Miss Katrina pointed out some lessons she learned by herself in her journey as a young person. She mentioned having zero savings, over spending and credit abuse. She also discussed some solution to be practically made. That is to pay the debts accordingly, pay bills on time, manage expenses through having a record and to become an auto saver. This is beyond piggy banks, shall I say.

Sun Life FUNday: Money Regrets and Growth by Mr. Michael Gustilo

The second part of Sun Life FUNday was taken over by Mr. Michael Gustilo, Visayas Regional Sales Manager of Sun Life Financial. He discussed more in depth the mistakes on financial journey of people under 30s. These are what he called “Money Regrets”. Most have gone through these: spending so much on wants, starting late personally on financial management and being dependent on salary as the only source of income. Who wants to be employed at the age of 60, he asked. Compelling, right?

Also, Mr. Michael shared insights about investments on any form. There are three major factors to consider on investing: time, money and interest. Time, the best time to start investing which should be yesterday (not today) in order to have a return today. Money, save as much as you can. Interest, find better inflation rates today. This is where financial advisors fit in the picture.

Indeed, finances matter and how we save and/or spend it matters even more. It’s not the earning habits but the spending habits that define someone’s wealth. Learn how to make your money work for your dream and achieve financial independence. Income sources, frugality, knowledge, and investment will be the best formula to attain financial security in the future!

Financial Management: Start A New Journey + Doable Tips

Financial Management

It’s been a couple of months since I left my regular office work and took a huge leap of faith in pursuing blogging as of today. I am not speaking for the end of itself, but I am speaking as someone who had some transition especially on my finances. I lost over 60% of my usual income a month since then. Financial management became a top list topic by that time til now.

For over two and a half years at my office work, I never had that sense of savings in my hand even when I tried (*smirk). Although, I am not saying I am spending on worthless things at all.
