Being an expatriate abroad doing financial coaching, I have witnessed and shared with other Filipinos the sacrifice they are willing to give in order to provide their families a bright future. I asked some of them and generally the answer that I am getting is to have a greener pasture, which means to have an improved and more prosperous life. I have heard different stories of life, some successful and some are sad stories.
I have heard news of Kabayans who were sent to prison because of their inability to pay for their debts. In fact, based on the study conducted by the Philippine Embassy, it was found that being in debt is one of the main reasons why Pinoys working abroad are imprisoned. Moreover, some families left back home do not know how to manage the hard-earned money remitted by their relatives working overseas. As a result, this hard-earned money is spent unwisely and just went to drain.
It opened my mind that it is imperative to be in control of our finances and manage it wisely. I recognized the following reasons why I have came up with this blog. These will be the guiding principles of its existence and all aspects will be revolving around these.
Share success ideas to others on how to make more money, save it properly, invest it wisely and give it for the benefit of others.
Understand that the true meaning of a Successful Pinoy is a life of balance in Financial, Physical, Family/Social and Spiritual.
Communicate and network with other people and learn from their own experiences in handling their finances and empowering themselves.
Commit to discipline oneself in saving and investing our hard-earned money the right way.
Empower oneself in achieving the goals in life may it be short-term, midterm or long-term.
Strategize new business opportunities as a source of making more money and to instill an entrepreneur mindset.
Seek the guidance of the Lord every step of the way in the journey towards financial freedom and become a blessing to others
With these objectives in mind, financial freedom will be within reach and building wealth will be attainable. As I am working my way to that direction, I will share here success strategies on how I am pursuing this goal and hope you can get ideas from them until we achieve to be a Successful Pinoy.
