Here’s another good read, I wish they Taught Me Money in High School: So I can Start my Own Business Right Away. It’s also part of the first book I reviewed (they’re two books in one! Cool isn’t it?) Anyway this books tackles more about businesses. Do you own a business or planning one? Then, this book is perfect for you.


I’ve never really ran any “serious” business. Although I’m currently doing web hosting as my “sideline”. I too had plans on running a serious one and still planning it, maybe I can make it happen.

I was inspired of the stories Ms. Sharon W. Que shared. She comes from a family that already owned business, but she didn’t pursue her career in running business out of the fact that her parents owned business. She wanted to have one simply because she knew it was what she wanted. Not all people are really brave enough and they just go with the flow.

In the book, you will understand more about how businesses work. Sure, you can own or start one with good capital. But are you really sure you’re going to get good results? There are so many things you need to think about first for that:

  • Who is the target of your business?
  • What are the important things you need to run this?

I know a family who has ran so many businesses yet they always fail. Other than the fact there is not much interest, they seem to not know the right way of handling the money that’s going in. And that’s bad.


  • A Clear & Vivid Picture
  • Burning Passion
  • Exceptional Persistence

I truly believe these are what you need to reach your goal. You should also think that when running a business, you’re not just after the money. Think of the people you will be doing your business for too!

It is truly funny how they seem to always make us solve crazy math problems yet they never explain importance of using it. Thanks to this book I’ve become more aware and I became inspired to still push through my dream business!

When I was younger, I remember being given 100 php every payday (my mom’s payday) then she would let me buy whatever I wanted with that 100 php. I always spent it mostly on magazines such as (Kzone) because I was into reading back then or maybe school supplies.

Looking back, it made me realise, “what if, I did something else with that 100 php?”. When I read this good book sent to me last month titled “I wish they Taught Me Money in High School: So I’m Not Dependent on my Paycheck” by Ms. Clarissa Seriña-De La Paz the more I probably have done better. I probably made mistakes on not saving it or doing something about it other than spent it…but maybe, it’s not too late to change for the better :)


Although I’m not a fan of books like this, I must say I really enjoyed reading it. Ms. Clarissa shares in this book not only tips and lessons about how you can be better financially but also how you can be a better person – learning to discipline and be creative.

In this book, you get to learn financial terms in a way you won’t get too much headache. For example, “mutual funds”. Although I don’t exactly understand how it fully works, I got interested as to how it can be a way you can make your money grow. After all, money does not grows on trees. You have to find ways.

The art in this book is also really fun unlike the books of its same topic. Usually, they full of text and it will bore you but this one has many cute drawings. At the end part, you even get a paper where you can write your goals so you can accomplish your life and what your aim is if you want to become better financially.


As someone who works 8 hours a day in front of the computer, it’s never enough to just stop at that. This book inspires me that maybe I can pursue my other dreams with my other talents! Then maybe, I can live more freely financially. I just hope to keep up with the pact..hehe.

Learning is a step by step process and if you want to cope up with your finance problems or at least learn better on how you can manage it – this book is perfect for you.

I’d hate to admit it but no matter what I do, I somehow reserve weekend for sleep and rest. I didn’t understand these things when I was still not employed. I thought, people who had jobs always wanted to make excuses and all. Then I was wrong. So wrong!


I understand now why certain people would rather sleep on a weekend – especially for the likes who have to wake up 4 am in the morning. I get home really early but sometimes I just really feel sleepy and tired knowing it’s a work day.  Needless to say, happy weekend! I really need some sleep now.
