You don’t know me yet.

But since you’re reading this page, I feel like I already know you. Let me see:

You’re sick of the usual script: “Study hard. Work hard. Pay the bills hard! Buy a house! Get married. Have children. Stay at your job for 40 years. Collect your pension when you’re old. And then you can enjoy life for 10-20 years. Bye-bye.”

You believe that success is something YOU define: It’s whatever you think it is: travelling while working, settling down on a house, owning a business, eating great food with loved ones, or even doing what you like when you like it — that’s success.

You’re working in a job you don’t like, to pay for things you bought, to impress people who don’t really matter to you.

You want to stop living your life according to the opinion of others: your parents, friends, partner, relatives, boss, or your “concerned” kapitbahay. You want to start living your life on your own terms.

You want to be better in your finances so you can do more of the things you love. Plus, there’s got to be a way to do what you love and get paid for it, right?

You feel overworked and overweight and overthinking, and you want to change these.

If any of this sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to The Wise Living! It’s good to have you here.

Also, you can relax now. I don’t know all of these because I’m watching you right now. I know all of these, because I’ve been in your situation before, too. 🙂

The Wise Living is a progressive movement — an advocacy to help people like me and you stop existing based on other people’s opinions, and start living the life we love.

This movement allows you to live a life of freedom: that’s why in our social media profiles, you can find us by searching for @livefreewithlianne. 🙂

Who is Lianne?

Relax ka lang. Come, let’s chat!

A few years ago, I was living what people would say a “perfect life”.

My career as a full-time financial advisor flourished and I was earning xxx,xxx a month.

The job came with perks: it helped me travel for free, stay in five-star hotels, and eat whatever, whenever and wherever I wanted.

I liked (not loved) my work.

Every awarding, I was given a medal.

Every meeting, I was recognized for my hard work.

Every Filipino life I secured and every family I “protected financially”, I was praised.

The dream of advancing my career and “reaching the top” was going smoothly, too. My status from financial advisor was changed to Manager Candidate and everyone I knew was congratulating me.

My parents were proud.

My friends told me I was so lucky.

People I looked up to in the industry told me I should be thankful that I’m accomplishing a lot, given my young age.
