Introduction to Pesobility

This site is still under construction. For now, allow me introduce myself. I'm Manny. As of writing, I'm 27 years old and I'm working as a software developer in the Philippines for 6 years. I enjoyed the money I earned during my first years, mostly spending it to travel, having fun and drinking beer.Now that I'm starting to settle down, I need to be more responsible with my finances. Let's equip ourselves with knowledge and increase financial literacy so instead of working hard for money, you make your money work for you.

I will try to build this website up from research to help fellow Filipinos who are newbies in this area to be more aware that there are resources out there (free and paid) that you can take advantage of in learning how to invest your money wisely.

I got interested in investment because I didn't know about these things before. And now that I know something about, I want to share the knowledge and continue my research. Makes me wonder why these things aren't taught in schools; it should be, it makes people wiser about their money.

To get started, research first about the various investment options available in the Philippines plus their corresponding risks.  There's UITF, Mutual Funds, Stocks, Bonds, etc. Also research why putting all your money into a savings account of a bank is a dead investment.
