A Divine Financial Awakening Away From Home

Today, I will be featuring a guest blogger at My Saving Money Tips and a fellow financial advocate at OFW UsapangPiso, Anna “Jing” Santos, to tell her experience as a Filipino who left the Philippines to find better opportunities in Canada. She also shares her quest for financial independence and how she was able to overcome her personal financial struggles.

My Divine Financial Awakening Away From Home

Who does not want a greener pasture? Of course, everyone does! Even animals themselves scout for a new site where they can benefit more. The same thing is true with us humans. We search for a better place to stay and experience life fruitfully and financially prosperous.

One specific example is us, Filipinos. The one great reason why we leave our beloved country, Philippines, is to find better future for ourselves and loved ones. It is also a common practice from all over the world that people go out of their respective countries, either temporarily or permanently, believing they can find a better status somewhere else.

“Thou Shalt Not Be Poor” – The 11th Commandment

Ms. Rosalind Wee of Marine Resources Development Corp. was the one who coined that 11th Commandment tagline, FYI. :)

It’s the first phrase that you will read upon opening the first pages of the new book of Bro. Bo Sanchez and Dean Pax Lapid called “How To Turn Your Passion Into Profit – 8 Keys to Build a Truly Rich Business”.

This morning, our office Admin boys entered my room and handed me this dark brown/black box which I first thought was a box of chocolates. I was hallucinating and famished so please forgive me. Continue reading “Thou Shalt Not Be Poor” – The 11th Commandment

But before I do that, let me just emphasize once more the difference between an investor and a trader, as defined so clearly by Fitz like the crystal pristine waters of the South Pacific Ocean.

According to Fitz,

We Don’t Die. We Just Change Addresses

I was just about to read the blog post of Bro. Bo Sanchez this morning entitled “How To Start Living In Heaven Now” when I saw an email notification from kumare and former colleague Claire with the subject “Ruth”.

Ruth is a good friend and a former colleague as well in a Japanese company I used to work for. Both Claire and Ruth worked as Accounting professionals under me.

Claire’s email message was straightforward. Ruth succumbed to a 4th stage ovarian cancer.
I remember sending Ruth a Christmas email early December 2012 but did not get a return email greeting. I assumed she just filed a month long leave of absence as she used to do. Continue reading We Don’t Die. We Just Change Addresses
