There used to be a time when I lived happy for each day, yet I feared the future and “prepared for the worst and hoped for the best.”
Attended the third and final SunTalks and it made me realized a lot of things. Life wasn’t always like this! As a mom, I am very thankful that I had this kind of opportunity to learn more about the financial. Thanks to Sunlife for having this kind of seminar/ talk where learned a lot of practical and relevant financial tips from their Agency Strategy & Digital Transformation Head Jenny del Mundo and Sun Life Advisor Josh Jayzzer de Leon.
First thing on the list, start Young. Ms. Jenny shared her personal experience and tips on how she achieve the financial freedom and how good when you start as early as you can. Even you start with the small one you can add on later. It also important to have separate savings or account for health and wellness issue to avoid borrowing and begging for others to help you.

It used as the basic concept, we should cover the foundation which means the emergency funds 3 to 6 times of our monthly expenses. We should start from the bottom Liquidity – emergency fund, Protect – Life / health insurance, Accumulate – save and save for the coming milestones , Transfer – estate planning.
“I must be financially ready for the unexpected so that my spouse will not bear the burden of 2 breadwinners while trying to maintain living standard and pursuing future milestones.”
