Personal Finance Seminar for Filipinos in Singapore
Personal finance, financial freedom, financial literacy, financial education and advocacy. These are just some of the things that are very close to my heart as I've always been advocating the importance of learning how to manage one's finances, save money and be able to have stable source of income aside from your day job.
Personal Finance for Every Juan: An Event You Shouldn't Miss for Anything!
I usually share a list of must-attend seminars through my blog, Saving is Sexy, as I like to keep track of personal finance events, webinars and other related activities that will help empower more Filipinos financially. I ensure that these events do not promote scammy activities and share only those who truly provide value to my fellow Filipinos, especially the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who wish to understand the basics of investing money and where to place their hard-earned money.
However, my personal finance blog (focused on the first step which is saving money, is currently down). You may, however, click on its Facebook page for daily tidbits and tips (usually jokes!) on how to save money.
I'm thrilled to share with you another event where some of my favourite personal finance advocates and personal finance bloggers are coming together to impart their wisdom and expertise in an event called Personal Finance for Every Juan. It's a really good event that I hope that my OFW friends in Singapore will blessed with financial wisdom through it.
The event will help more Filipinos learn how we can champion financial literacy and how we can push the advocacy of financial literacy to every Filipino. My all-time favourite personal finance expert and financial literacy advocate, Randell Tiongson, will once again visit Singapore to share us the importance of Insurance, why we should invest in Mutual Funds, and more about Personal Finance. You might remember how ecstatic I was when he first visited Singapore (read my post here and here) and do check out the photo during his seminar on Achieving Financial Security here).
