Re-conceptualizing The Idea Of Hidden Wealth

An emergency fund is one of the most useful things we can have. It might not be something we get to use everyday, but when the time comes that we do need it, it's the most wonderful thing in the world.

But there are a lot of "small emergencies" that pop up from time to time.

How Stocks Can Be A Second Source of Income

How Stocks Can Be A Second Source of Income. Dividend investing is probably the least exciting way to invest in stocks. But what people sometimes don't consider, is that it's also a way to generate income.
I've been looking to start a second stream of income for a while now. I have already invested in mutual funds, but they are more for combating inflation and growing my savings, not really for generating income (or at least that is how I intend it to be).

Ideally I want to start my own business. But not having spotted a good business opportunity yet, I decided to practice dividend investing. I'm hoping this can help me get some income while looking for a business that I can get into.

So what's dividend investing?

Make Millions In Just Ten Years

Hi Everyone! I've been posting regularly for the last couple of months and decided to mix things up and give a "surprise" post for today.

You were most probably drawn in by the title. After all, who wouldn't want to make millions in just ten years? And if you're reading this blog, that's probably one of your goals too (or will be soon).

So how can we make millions in such a relatively short amount of time? Don't worry, I'm not selling you some magic beans here.

Taking Advantage of Low Inflation Rates

Taking Advantage of Low Inflation Rates. In a previous article, we looked at what the inflation rate is, why it's not so bad and why a low inflation rate is considered as "good news". However, most of us won't feel it directly. So in this article, we'll explore some ways we might benefit from it.

Explaining Inflation; And Why Small Price Increases Are Better Than Price Decreases

Explaining Inflation; And Why Small Price Increases Are Better Than Price Decreases.
Since a common objective when investing is to beat the inflation rate, it's become a topic that I've been quite curious about. So I've decided to do some research on this.

And for a year now, the inflation rate has either gone down or stayed relatively low. Since 2012 started, it hasn't hit 4% and has stayed around 3%.

And not surprisingly, it's been touted by the government and by the Bangko Sentral as good news. However, when people hear the news the common response goes something like this: "So why can't we feel it?"

And the simple answer is: because we're not supposed to.

What Does The GDP Really Mean To Us?

What Does The GDP Really Mean To Us?
Recently, we've been hearing good news about the GDP. At first, it's been higher than initially expected. And more recently, it's reached the ~7% range that some say means we are in a growth trajectory, and headed for better times.

And just like low inflation rates, it's being trumpeted as good news. But we can only scratch our heads and wonder why we don't seem to feel it.

So in this article, we'll try to figure out just what the GDP means to us and if it really is good news - and if so, how we can take advantage of it.
