As a Pinoy millenial, how do you manage your finances?
Last August 30, I was invited by Real Talk, a station-produced show by CNN Philippines to talk about managing your money as a yuppie.
It was a surreal experience. I was stunned by the amazing hosts, Rachel Alejandro and Christine Jacob – such lovely presences. And I felt honored to be invited.
My parents were equally happy when they received the news. They even dragged LJ and they all dropped me off at CNN Philippines headquarters. 🙂 Here they are posing in front of the office.
Since Pinoy yuppies love to travel, here’s a special article I made just for you.
In my guesting, I also made it a point to talk about preparing for your SELFIE. It’s really about preparing for the future and learning to balance.
S – Security
Security means that you have a financial peace of mind.
Emergency Fund: Your security for the present. Get an emergency fund that can meet 3-6 months’ worth of your expenses.
Retirement Fund: Your security for the future. Save enough for the initial investment amount toopen an investment account and then invest monthly. (Don’t just rely on government programs!)
E – Education
Don’t just invest in financial assets: you need to invest in your knowledge as well. Purchase money management books, attend conferences and networking events, listen to talks and seek expert advice.
