Profit Mastery Seminar, 27th September 2015

On the 17th January this year, I attended the personal financial investment seminar and was blown away by the richness of content by the speakers which were mainly bloggers in the finance community. I thought I would be bombarded by alot of ego driven bloggers each trying to outspeak each other about how much they have outshone each other’s record in terms of portfolio and investment style. This perception was based on the free training seminars that I’ve attended previously where the trainer will either flash their car or condo keys or make comments like “Follow me, limpxx will...

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish Series : He QUIT to travel the world with only $16K savings

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition … Stay hungry, Stay foolish.”  This is what Steve Job shared with the Stanford students in his commencement speech. I have always believed that we should always go after what we are passionate about in the process of accumulating wealth. Recently, I came across many Singaporeans who...

What is the price of your dream?

How much money will you need to be financially secure, independent, or free ? Is it $1 million ? $5 million ? $ 500 million? This was a question that Tony Robbins asked in his recent book “Money, Master the Game”. He shared that dreams may not be as unreachable as it seemed, but because we are constantly seeking significance, comparing ourselves with someone else so we never feel fulfilled. There’s always someone bigger, taller, stronger, faster, richer, funnier, younger, more handsome, more beautiful , with a bigger yacht, a nicer car, a nicer home. He gave an example of...

As shared in my earlier post, money has always been a sensitive topic within my family. Thus, I needed a way to broach this topic in the least destructive way so that I could get the information I need to build my buffer. Else, I would never dare to retire. This is what I did to get started which...

Breadwinner Series : If I could turn back the clock…

Having to take over the “Bringing the Bacon Home” responsibility since graduation has never been easy for me. Although I have always been earning my own pocket money (teaching piano, tuition, part time jobs) since young, I didn’t have a clue how much I really need to bring in to feed a family of four when I first started. I remembered juggling between 3 jobs after graduation (full time job, teaching piano/tuition, weekend job). My friends were always complaining that I had no time to join them for social gatherings and that I am too obsessed with earning money....
