I am an intelligent OFW. Way back before I started working abroad, I already have my life goals ruled out. I want to have a savings account that I can use not just for emergencies.

Practical and Wise: I Am That Type of OFW
I Am an OFW – Practical and Wise

I am a practical OFW. I do not send all of my income to my family as I have my own savings and investments. I always talk to my family on how to handle money wisely. I do not restrict them from enjoying the things money can buy, but I teach them to make use of money in the things they really need and to always save as this will be very useful when it comes to emergencies.

Pasalubongs, bilins and balikbayan boxes all have limits. I also do not give in easily to demands like financial assistance especially if they are not really necessary and my budget won’t allow it. I know I am not a millionaire and that I cannot please everybody.

I Am an OFW – A Financially Intelligent One

I Am an OFW – A Financially Intelligent One

I am an OFW and consider myself as financially intelligent. My goal is to attain a certain phase of my life where I can live comfortably without the need to work abroad away from my family and let my money work for me. I use three main assets to be successful in achieving financial freedom – Knowledge, Money and Time.

Time is a resource that can never be replenished, taken back or paused. Money can affect relationships, your way of living, feelings, quality of life and etc. It is a renewable resource – something you can lose and get back. Knowledge is used, reused and recycled. It is widely available at any medium at any given time. Using all three resources wisely and with care makes my future a brighter one.

How do I utilize these three resources?

I set goals and use my money on things that will make money for me in return. I save first before I spend. I refrain from reckless spending and do not indulge in goods that do not offer returns. I use my money in saving and investing because I know I will benefit from this greatly in the future. I would rather save and invest my money rather than indulge in temporary happiness. I treat saving and investing as part of my expenses and maintain consistency when it comes to both.

I don’t waste my time in social medias because I want to focus in investing my time towards something productive. Social Media is already a part of our everyday life but I never let myself get sucked up to it or waste too much of my valuable time on it unless I can learn a valuable lesson through it. I only use it to follow successful people with the same interests as mine which is building wealth and those who share positivity and wisdom.

I invest my time making relationships with people who have a rich and successful mindset. I always find inspiration among successful investors and try to learn something from their experiences. Building great relationships with people who have the same interests as mine and those who have positive mindset is always a healthy habit.

I invest my time in reading and studying webpages about investing in the stock market niche. I know and understand that learning is a never-ending process. I never stop educating myself as there will always be new knowledge available for me to read and study. I want to always be up to date on the latest tips and tricks so I can make better decisions in the future.

I invest my time in viewing and studying YouTube videos about investing in the stock market rather than waste my time in watching TV or playing video games. Knowledge cannot only be found in books or written materials, but visual aids as well.

I use and invest my time in getting things done rather than procrastinating. I find satisfaction in accomplishing tasks the soonest time possible. Notice how most includes investing in time? The reason is because time is limited. Knowledge is readily available while money can be replenished. By making use of my time wisely and using available knowledge in building wealth, I am confident that I am able to retire comfortably and all hard work will surely pay off.
