MANILA, Philippines – How do you see yourself 5 or 10 years from now?
It’s a question many of us have been asked at least once, and most of the time the answers come easy: traveling the world, having a stable job and being independent, living a comfortable life with the family, investing in a house or car… and so on and so forth.
Too often, though, and for one reason or another, many Filipinos do not take actual steps to achieve these goals, thereby creating a disconnect between what they want and what they are actually doing about it financially. (READ: Piolo, Judy Ann share practical financial advice)
