Making life better: The many faces of a hardworking Pinoy

We all look forward to making our lives better regardless of what 'better' means for us. We all strive at our own pace, focusing on working hard in order to reach our personal end goals. This is why some of us also look forward to a deserving relaxation time alone or with family, friends and loved ones, especially on Labour Day. It is, after all, the day for the hardworking ones, a holiday meant to honour the efforts and contributions made to have a better life and a community.

But while Labour Day provides the hardworking Pinoys to get a day off, many still do not have the luxury of celebrating the day on their own terms.

How saving money now can help you gain a financially-secure future

Apart from being hospitable, Filipinos are inherently hard working. We have no qualms about doing multiple jobs, taking a lot of workloads, and working in faraway places to earn more for the family. But many of us still find ourselves struggling with money whenever we need it the most such as when medical need arises or car and home repairs are needed.  Why?

The answer actually lies on our spending habits and what we do with the money we worked so hard for. A lot of Filipinos spend impulsively without any thought for saving for the future. Some spend their money on unnecessary luxuries or things they do not really need. There are also those we call the “one-day millionaires,” who spend to the point of ending up with little or no cash way before the next payday. Such habits usually get us into financial trouble and consequently hinder our financial growth.
