Are you buying things you don't need?

Too many people spend money they buy things they don’t impress people that they don’t like.

Not Earning Enough Or Just Spending Too Much?

How To Determine if You Are Not Earning Enough or Just Spending Too Much.

5 Days before payday... tiningnan mo ang wallet mo ... patay! YAIKS!!! Wala nang laman!?! Saan napunta ang pera ko?

empty wallet, where did my salary go?
Where did my salary go?
I was like this for many years, specially on my early years as an employee.  I was always excited when I received my first salary. We celebrated that night, drank a case of Red Horse beer... dalawa lang kami. Dahil lasing na, nag-taxi na pauwi. A few days before the next payroll, my wallet is already empty and had enough money for the jeepney fare for a few days.
So, in order to have lunch, utang muna! Pagdating sa hapunan, punta sa suking karenderya at... syempre utang! 

Buti na lang kung minsan nagpapadala pa ng pera ang parents ko noon, at least hindi ako nabaon sa utang!

Do You Know Where You Have Spent Your Salary?

Do you know where you spent your salary?
Do you know where you have spent you salary? Or you are one of those who, after a week of receiving your salary, exclaims: "Hala! Ubos na ang sweldo ko?! Saan napunta pera ko?"

Then you would start thinking, what you have bought in the past week and how you spent on that night-out after getting your salary.

Where Is This Blog Going At?

I have been reviewing my blog posts for the past few days. I created this blog so I can share my journey to my financial freedom; however, I ended up jumping from one topic to another.

The Reasons I Started This Blog

Last month (August 7, 2015), the Truly Rich Club Caravan went to Roxas City. When I heard of it, I got so excited. I used to be a Gold member of Truly Rich Club for over a year. In all those time, I have learned a lot about handling personal finance. However, I have never taken any steps to put what I have learned into action. After sometime, when the amount in my virtual debit card was consumed, I did not bother to renew my Gold membership and got automatically downgraded to bronze membership.

Investing in the  Stock Market

Investing in the Philippine Stock Market for the First Time!

Who would have though that someone like me would invest in the Philippine stock market? I earn less that PHP 20.000.00 a month (that;s less than US$500.00) and knows very little about investing in the stock market. Yet, last Tuesday, On the 1st day of September (2015) I bought my first stocks! I realized then how exciting it is to invest in the Philippine stock market.

Be Truly Free!

Welcome to Be Truly Free

Welcome to Be Truly Free. This blog is about my journey to financial freedom. I originally, I intended to put up this blog on a free hosting server as a subdomain. Unfortunately, the server is just about 94% reliable (for this week anyway). I could not even view my site for  over 11 hours yesterday. When it's online, it's just too slow.
