Learn Financial Peace While It’s Not Too Late

leave a comment »

I’ve attended a few seminars of Randell Tiongson, including one or two that presented Paulo Tibig and Francis Kong as speakers. I even wrote a piece in my blog How Can You Possess “Financial Freedom?” after attending Randell’s short seminar on financial planning, espousing the benefits of financial freedom.

I encourage you to spend some time and a little of your cash to educate yourself on financial planning, fnancial freedom and, this time, financial peace. Attend this one-day seminar for a “wake-upper” on how you spend (and save) your money.

Philippines Need Not Borrow Money – For Now

leave a comment »

The Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (or Central Bank of the Philippins) told various news media that the country does not have to resort to borrowing more money because of its “healthy position” regarding its balance of payments (BOP). This is strengthened by the robust influx of currency remittances to the country. Last year, the country hit a little less than $90 million in BOP surplus; the first four months of 2009 has also posted a moderate surplus.
