Creating Wealth – Smart Personal Finance Habits for OFW’s

I will be hosting a webinar (for those who are not familiar with this jargon, that’s a seminar being conducted online) featuring my fellow blogger and personal finance advocate, Fitz Villafuerte on February 28, 2013 from 3PM to 4PM, Philippine time.

The webinar is the first online project to be conducted in 2013 by the OFW UsapangPiso forum and Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy to provide timely information to our overseas Filipino workers on how to improve their financial lives. We are truly blessed that we have the internet to aid us in our education and for spreading financial literacy to all Filipinos all over the world.

So if you are an OFW, a member of the OFW UsapangPiso forum, or a dependent of one who’s working overseas, then register now for this FREE webinar on how to improve your finances.

Here’s the webinar details as provided by Fitz Villafuerte.

Who should sign-up and attend?

I’ll share with you personal stories on how I began my journey towards financial freedom; as well as a whole bunch of simple and doable tips on how you can start your own journey.

How much is this webinar?

It’s FREE! Yes, that’s right… you don’t have to pay anything and your only learning investment will be your time.

What are the technical requirements?

For PC-based attendees, you need to run Windows 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server. For the Mac-based people, you’ll need to have at least Mac OS X 10.5.

Lastly, a webcam is NOT required, but you’ll of course, need audio. Using computer speakers are okay but a headset would be better so you can hear my voice more clearly with less background noise.
