I Wish They Taught Money in High School So I’m Not Dependent on My Paycheck by Clarissa Seriña-De La Paz

The mindset from our previous education and family preaches – “finish school to get a good job.” Some made it to the cut-off but others strike a nagging question, why didn’t you (school) introduced hands-on strategy if not an insights on how to handle money to have a meaningful lifestyle upgrade? Yes majority depends on their paycheck, a wage not enough to sustain the basic needs of an average household. And probably these kinds will stay the rest of their lives agonizing how to meet both ends when paychecks comes around every 15 days. Who are to blame for their lack of financial knowledge? It’s how you brought up your child from the very beginning – monkey sees, monkey does. All threw stones from their past. But there’s still option to live life with stability, security. Use your hidden talent and make something out of it like what Pinoy says – a “sideline.” Start from small, something that sparks your interests. As they say, you don’t need huge capital just take control of your expenses, have a good credit standing, learn basic marketing, interact with your community, invest whenever you can and save as much as you can.

Work hard, work SMART, make a PACT, and be grateful – plant the seeds and savor their fruits

S – Start small
M – Make a habit and stick to it
A – Acquire more knowledge
R – Raise the bar of creativity
T – Think outside your salary

PACT means a Promise to Augment and Compound your Treasures

I Wish They Taught Money in High School So I Can Start My Own Business Right Away by Sharon W. Que

The topic was inspired from Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki and other financial experts on their own field. It relates a positive attitude towards entrepreneurship. How can one think of a business feasible to withstand time to generate passive income. It’s always been about taking risks, most successful businesses went under the same phase. They find ways to earn and multiply this income. Some argue about how little or no capital can start a small business? Personally I think getting into serious business requires guts, creativity, courage, working smart, right connection/network, passion and lots of luck!

Take a small, simple steps into the waters of business, until you find yourself happily swimming in it.

I was thrilled to grab a copy not just for me but to share it to my child as part of her financial literacy at a tender age of 7 I firmly believed she has the right to educate as early as possible all the money jargon: where does money came from, what are the means to earn money and why money rock the world? I don’t blame my parents nor the whole family clan for not being financially intellects, neither not blaming the school I went to (coz family chooses the wrong school and and we all agreed traditional school systems then sucks even until now.) The book suggests one should have working budget to plan and allocate savings thus: Income – Savings = Expenses. Create means according to your talents/skills, try to INVEST on something that you are really passionate about. It could be a small-time business, buy and sell, property, stocks, mutual funds in order for your money to work for you.
