It's December 2020 wow, 2020 has been a curve year for all of us. Back in December of 2019 we all have a great and amazing plan on what we want to accomplish for 2020 long and behold 2020 said Nah!

To say that 2020 has been a crazy year for everyone across the globe will be an understatement. It has been definitely roller a roller coaster ride for all of us, with some derailment and slingshots out of the ride. 

But life moves forward even when we don't want to, life naturally will move forward even when you don't move at all :) 

The only option is to move with head up high, sometimes you have to step back then step forward but keep moving and living life to the fullest!

Wow, that was a lot, but do you have any fun great amazing memories of Christmas? Growing I had some great ones back home. Watch the following video to have a sneak peek & have a fun holiday season spend it with great memories with your family.

The proportion of Poor Filipinos was Estimated at 16.6 Percent in 2018 based on the Philippine Statistics Office.  The countries population of the Philippines is at 106.7 million in 2018, that means about  17.7 million Filipinos are under the poverty line :(

Let that statement marinate on your mind for a while. How can we help and be not be part of that statistic? First, we can individually educate ourselves in terms of finance, saving money, and investments. Second, we can share our earned knowledge to push our country forward, and possibly in the future, we will have a more financially healthy country. 

Check out my video on how to start and save for unforeseen expenses.

Hola Friends!

I hope your November is going well even with these trying times in human history we call 2020. With most of us being cooped up inside by ourselves, significant others, kids, or relatives it's been interesting, fun, challenging, and might be eye-opening for most of us.

It's Thanksgiving week here in the US with the current restrictions for gatherings most will opt out of the big gatherings and keep everyone safe (I hope so). And back home in the Philippines, it will be a different December all together or Christmas that is. 

Mga inaanak pass muna sa pasko ;). In all seriousness, if you can and want to share some of your blessings to inaanaks, relatives and friends there are some quick, easy, and safe ways to send money to the Philippines, 

Just stumble upon Cebuana's Quikz app you can sign up over at Send Money via Cebuana and use code LOOA0323 we both earn $15 on your first transfer, and thank you.

You can also use promo code 3FREE, to get a free transfer fee for your next 3 transfers. I don't think you can stack them up though, so do your calculations as to which route to go :) 

Happy Holidays!
