If I’m earning a reasonable income, why am I not becoming wealthy?
I once read this question from a financial planning book titled The Wealthy Barber by Canadian author David Chilton. The book is an excellent read, giving readers personal finance advice. And what makes it more interesting is the concept the one giving the finance tips is a barber. The fictitious characters on the book are quite intrigued by how the millionaire barber accumulated his wealth on a barber’s salary.
A Brighter Tomorrow for The Wealthy Barber
The Wealthy Barber is what pushed me to look into mutual funds and get a servicing advisor to help me watch the ups and downs of the markets. More so, the book taught me to get a mix of stocks from different investments. This strategy helps me not to feel the sudden drop in shares of my investment because there are still other assets I have.

Do you have a bonding moment with your mom? Funny ours is every Saturday when we do the laundry. Despite technology’s promise of convenience, we still do the usual hand wash. My mom prefers the old method she’s been used to though there are high tech devices that allow us to clean clothes speedily and accurately.
Mothers are known to bring life to the world. They are our source of warmth when everything feels cold, our light when the road seems dark, and our shelter when all else turn against us. All their hardships that molded us into what we are today are indeed a gift that we should always be thankful for.
Take the case of these millennial mothers. When it comes to dealing with their children, there’s no denying that parenting can sometimes be challenging. But with the right approach in resolving issues, being a mother can also come with sweet, motivating rewards.
My mother is like most moms who would think of her child more than herself. She would let her daughter take the best part of the chicken, pretty much like to enroll her to the best schools.
Now that I am mom, she still gives everything she could to my boys and me. Nothing changed; only that I begin to understand her more now that I have my children.
