Positivity and Action
I received a call this afternoon from an acquaintance. She shares that she’s able to read most of my posts and can relate to most of the things especially the debt part. She shared that she has read many financial advice and stories but first time to read from a fellow Filipino.
Wow! It made my heart swell to know that there are actually people reading my blog aside from my family ☺. And to hear that they can relate to my posts gives me a confirmation that my honesty is helping others. I was really hesitant initially to share my money issues. It’s like telling everyone of your dirty little secret right? But one of my goals this year is to inspire others. I really don’t know how to achieve it that time but I thought if I can tell one person how positivity can change their life just as how it changed mine, then I’ve done my part. (more…)

How to not over extend your expat career?

Unless of course it’s your choice to stay and you can’t really see life going back to your own home place or you’re not interested building a new life again in another country. (more…)

Interest will lead to desire that will lead to action. Combine desire and action and you will, for sure, reach your goal however outrageous others see it. (more…)
How to get out of debt?
We all have a fair idea on how our debt started. Our circumstances changed – we got married, had a new baby or children went to college. It could be due to emergency – medical expenses or the car broke down. Or it could be as simple as having bad choices in spending.
Everyone started with one credit card with a manageable credit limit. After few months, all these banks were offering all sorts of credit cards with added perks. Being naive, we just accepted them all. Your one card became 2 then 4 and before you know it you had several and maxed-out them all. That’s aside from the multiple loans you had taken. (more…)
