At a very early age, my mother taught me to value money, she explained to me the importance of prioritizing our needs and think less of that is not a necessity. I may be an only child, but never did they spoil me with things that are dubbed as “luxuries”. Instead, my mother instilled to me that “If you want something so badly, you got to earn and save for it.” that’s when I learned.
So when there was an opportunity to do a book review, which is actually my first, I grabbed the chance right away. A book that I badly need just in time!
I both tried earning money through business and paycheck. In business, I was happy with what I’m doing. I earned, I am my own boss, and I own my time. When I was working, I was financially secured in a sense that in every two weeks I will get paid no matter what, as long as I go to work 9 hours a day, 5 days a week. What I liked about having a business and working is I was able to save money. However, what I didn’t do that time was to invest so I can have a passive income.
But it’s never too late, right?! It’s about time for us to be financially wise. I am highly recommending this book to get tips on how to start it right.
