Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income.

As a parent, the most valuable element for me is time. Every second wasted would mean lost memories, messy house and unhappy family. I cannot let things happen that way if only I have the ability to multi-task every second. Having to achieve such skill is no easy task. It entails minute detail that needs mastering.


Never a day that I would unleash the other side of me being a monster mom because two kids fighting while playing is just overwhelming. When things are already exhausting, I would always look forward to their sleeping time so that I can get a me-time and have a little break from all these mundane activities to regain that strength and keep ourselves going.

How about you? What ability would you like to have as a mom?
