Some of you may know that one of the reasons this blog is called “Truly Rich Mom” is because I was inspired by Kuya/Bro. Bo Sanchez’s book, 8 Secrets of the Truly Rich. Prior to choosing this name, I had blogs of different names both on WordPress and Blogger. Around the same time I was thinking of a blog name, my husband and I were able to attend seminars on financial literacy.
We have since
struggled tried to abide by all the principles and strategies that we learned from those seminars, plus Kuya/Bro. Bo’s books and teachings. We are not 100% financially free yet (meaning we still have debts to pay and are still building up our emergency and retirement funds, savings, and investments), but we hope to get there soon, by God’s grace! 😉
If — like me and my husband — you want to increase your financial literacy, learn how to budget for your family and plan financially for the future, among other things, you’ll definitely want to attend the latest workshop by Manila Workshops and Fitz Villafuerte of Ready To Be Rich, entitled READY TO BE RICH: FAMILY FINANCES.
Ready To Be Rich: Family Finances – This innovative workshop involves hands-on and interactive activities on how attendees can properly manage and balance a family budget, plan for their kids’ education or their parents’ retirement while ensuring that they still have money left to invest for them to achieve their financial goals.
Some of the topics that will be discussed include the zero-based budget system for households, money lessons for kids, personal finance strategies for married couples, sandwich generation survival tips and many others.
Who can attend the Ready To Be Rich: Family Finances workshop?
While anyone can join the workshop, it is designed for
- Couples who are finding it hard to budget their income to sustain the needs of their family
- Breadwinners who are taking care of their parents, or involved in elder care at home
- Single parents who are finding it hard to achieve work-life balance
- People who have relatives who depend on them financially
- Newlyweds who would like to know how to become financially independent from their parents.
(Do you see yourself in any of the descriptions listed above? I do! 😉 )
This workshop will be held on November 9, 2013 (Saturday) from 10am to 4pm. The venue will be at Studio SnR, 3/F Millenium Plaza Building, Meralco Avenue, Ortigas CBD, Pasig City.
