Money Matters

Ever since I switch from Globe prepaid to postpaid, I kept getting SMS from different agents about loans from different banks. I don't know why they have my number. I'm not sure if I need to call Globe if they can filter those people sending the SMS. At present, I'm not interested in applying for pre qualified loans as I've made a decision to pay the debts/ credits that I have and start investing the money that I saved. I read somewhere that in order for a person to succeed to financial freedom, he or she must free himself / herself from debts and that's exactly what I'm going to do. If you think about it hard, it's the logical thing to do.

I have attended a seminar about the basics in stocks and I'm planning to attend another seminar on Monday to know more about the product that they introduced on the stocks seminar. Apart from stocks, I'm also considering mutual funds and I'm eyeing a company who's been stable through the years. In tough times like recession and price hikes, you will never know what will happen in the future and these days earning money is not as easy as before. I have no plans of being an employee forever so it would be better to invest early and of course I need to be equip with knowledge about these investments.

It was shared in a yahoo group where I'm a member to subscribe to a newsletter of a financial adviser who happens to be a seminarian before. I have one of his books but I'm not done reading all about it. I also remembered having one of his e-book that was shared by one of his members. I think these tools will help me a lot on handling my finances better.
