A lot of people are starting to make a lot of “active” money on the Internet.

More bloggers are quitting their day jobs to start earning more online. Continue reading Know The Secrets in Making More Money Online! Join the WebCamp – Internet Business Super Conference 2012
If an OFW wants to put up an online business or start investing in various financial instruments, he has to have a savings account for him to facilitate his transactions efficiently.
However, opening a regular savings account in the Philippines may not be too affordable for an OFW because of high required minimum maintaining balance. Remember that OFWs’ remittances to family members back home are oftentimes consumed to the last drop that leaving at least Php2,000.00 in their bank account may not be possible at all.

There is one popular investment guru and columnist who’s a known hardcore active stock market trader and totally hates the cost-averaging method of investing. One guy posted a comment on the guru’s Twitter account saying that “Cost Averaging” is an effective strategy than having no strategy at all. The popular guru replied, “Doing bad is better than doing nothing at all?”
That’s how he hates “laziness”. That’s how he hates passive investing using the cost averaging method.

Have you ever experienced getting squeezed between intellectual friends or acquaintances in one chatting occasion?

When a fellow investment advocate urged me to start an online movement to teach overseas Filipino workers on investing, entrepreneurship, and personal finance, I began to realize that this must be the reason why this time around God wanted me back here in Saudi Arabia.
Let me go back in time.
