I’d be the first to admit that we are not the most financially secure family. However, we’d like to be and that’s one of our ultimate goals. We believe that we owe it to ourselves, most especially to our kids, to make sure that we are financially secure so that we won’t need to worry about very important things such as our health, our home, our kids’ education, our future and even some of the not so important things that we’d like to have.
Admittedly though, it’s a little nerve-wracking for me to even think about it. I feel like I don’t really know how and where to start. Thankfully, there are a lot of sources now that we can tap in order to learn how to properly manage our family’s finances, such as the upcoming Ready to be Rich: Family Finances Workshop.
This workshop is already actually a re-run. It is organized by Manila Workshops together with no less than finance expert, Fitz Villafuerte of Ready to be Rich. It will be held on November 9, 2013 at Studio SnR, 3/F Millenium Plaza Building, Meralco Avenue, Ortigas CBD, Pasig City from 10am to 4pm.
Here’s more info about the workshop:
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.
