My Personal Financial Plan Diary 2013

I believe that investing should not be a "nosebleeding" activity.

I believe that every Filipino should engage in a rewarding personal finance life. I believe that investing and saving money should be fun, cool, happy, easy! It should be consistently done - not imposed but out of personal desire to live an abundant, rich life!

My Personal Financial Plan Diary 2013
My goal is to shift from being a low risk investor to a medium risk investor in 2013.

Low
• Savings • Checking • Time Deposits • Bonds

Medium
• Mutual Funds • UITFs • Insurances*

High
• Stocks • Real Estate • Forex • Commodities

Investment Shifts
Categorized above are investments according to risk. Take time to categorize your current investments and identify what kind of investor you are today and what kind of investor you want to be in 2013. This diagram will help you recognize where you want to shift your money, that is shifting your investor profile as well. You can stay as is if you want to, and you can move from one trapezoid to another. Qualify also by age: Low (40s and up) Medium (30s-40s) High (20s-30s) Choice is yours to make.
* Insurances I place in medium since though guaranteed by insurance provider, we will not be sure if the provider will not default. At this time insurance companies are now being regulated.

Objective Setting
I want you to list down 3 objectives this year. You can add more as you go on. But for now, list down 3 big dreams for your personal financial life this year. If in the middle of the year you are done with the 3 big dreams, congratulations! Why not set one (1) more special objective to boot. Good luck! Example: I’ll attend a personal finance seminar by end of 2013. As a reward, I’ll treat myself for a relaxing spa and massage.

AMDG+ 1cor1614 PS1 As much as I wanted to print a hard copy of this diary to be freely shared with you, printing (as I inquired) would cost me significant amount given the number of subscribers and the print quality I want to achieve. Hence, this diary is for download for FREE. You can opt to print a colored hard copy of this diary as it looks nice that way, but you can also opt to keep it as soft copy in your computer/laptop/tablet. PS2 Next year, my big dream is to be able to publish a hard copy of this diary for distribution. I hope you can help me fulfill my dream by supporting the blog throughout 2013. Join our charity activities too! PS3 I am a charity blogger, a pet lover, a curious person and a God-fearing person.
