About + Contact


This is a blog about business, investments, and personal finance.

I created this site to share what I have learned in my research and experiments on how to reach financial freedom.

I am neither an accountant nor a finance analyst. I am just sharing my knowledge and experience here as I figure out how to be financially independent.


If you have any questions, suggestions, or random trivia you want to share, I’m all ears.

Send me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Please note that I do not accept unsolicited guest posts or sponsored posts.

You can message me through the "Got Questions" form at the bottom of this page and at the sidebar.

You will need to click on the triple bar icon at the rightmost corner of your screen to navigate the sidebar menu.

I'll be glad to hear from you.

Please bear in mind that you’re allowing me to share it publicly for future posts (with your name withheld) by submitting a message.

Thank you!

SSS Pension is not enough to cover your cost of living during your senior years. Take that lesson from your SSS pensioner elders.
