Our second week class for CSS (Certified Securities Specialist) has just ended earlier. For me, it provided a lot of learning and refreshes my mind about financial statistics and math investment. I was a little excited in attending yesterday (Friday) for the start of our second week. I ask myself, why I felt such an excitement. My mind just shut out, then I tried to rationalize, probably it is because it is my desire to learn more about the field I am interested in (Financial Planning). After the class earlier, I found the real answer; the topic was an amazing one. Expecting the best to happen really provides such excitement.

PostHeaderIcon How I got to Financial Planning Service (12 steps to Build Wealth) – Part 1

First part of the book is entitled “True wealth and Savings”.In the book, it asks what it means to be wealthy? The author simply stated on how we can identify a rich man from a poor man. A rich man, is it the one who wear fine clothes, expensive jewellery, do travel and have vacation often, have a beautiful house and car, or eat every night to a fancy restaurant? If you have those attributes, then you are rich. But to be
truly wealthy you can ask these questions, what would happen if my income would stop today? How long can I live without my income? You are “truly wealthy” only if you can continue to live comfortably the lifestyle you desire even if you never work another day in your life.

PostHeaderIcon How I got to Financial Planning Service (12 steps to Build Wealth On Any Income, A book review and personal reflection) – Introduction

build wealthThis is the first book that I bought out of my pocket. Sounds silly, but yes its true. I can still remember the year but not the exact date; it was the summer of 2008. At that time, there was always a question in my mind, a question that I can’t really answer. The question is, why do other people is so called rich and others are not? With that question, there would be some branches of questions that came out of my mind like; if they spend on luxurious things, going out to the mall, and eating in a fancy restaurant do they need to budget?

And many more questions that prompt me to search for the answers why.

PostHeaderIcon Important Lessons From The Millionaire Next Door

When we think of the rich, we often picture the affluent living in mansions, driving expensive foreign cars and lavish vacations as portrayed by the media, but our perception of the affluent has been distorted by high consumption driven advertisements and Hollywood. Based on years of extensive research, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley and Dr. William D. Danko, discovered that people who live in expensive neighborhoods across the United States have actually very little wealth. Their book, The Millionaire Next Door, surprisingly reveals that those with great wealth, the multi-millionaires, could be one of your neighbors who lives in the same modest house for years and drives an old sedan. How could this be? Well, looks can be deceiving and it’s unfortunate that our society associates wealth and success with appearance, but this is an ineffective indicator of a person’s net worth (assets minus liabilities).
