About the Journey to Financial Freedom

This blog is brought by the ambition to become financial free before hitting 30. A small girl with big goals as people describe me, SavingsPinay continues to provide personal finance lessons, experience, opinion and inputs that people can freely refer to. 

Before I started SavingsPinay I was a one day millionaire. I spend a lot more than what I earn. I am stubborn and impulsive almost to the point that my wallet (even my ATM) will have zero money three days before the pay day. I was surrounded by workmates whose lifestyle was very different to me. And in my own desire to be part of the group, I became the person I never wanted to be. 

In 2014 I started a new job and drift my attention to the internet. I learned a lot of new things from how blogging works to how you can earn money online etc. I also started reading business and personal finance books on bookstores. All the added knowledge made me confident to start a blog just to share my journey towards financial freedom. 

Soon I received messages, requests and questions from others. The blog have grow so fast from a short span of time making it part of the Top 50 Personal Finance Blog in the Philippines. I can’t thank every SavingsPinay reader enough for supporting this humble personal finance blog and patronizing each and every post published. 

I’ve spent the last two years of my life learning more about personal finance, practicing what I preach and sharing what works for me and what not. It has been a continuous improvement to be honest but I will never ever get tired of it. You know what I realize? The Journey to Financial Freedom Begins with a Single Step. Read just one post on the blog, apply the lesson your learned in your life and feel the difference it could make. 

I am in no way near from retiring at 30 but with my current age (23) the financial lessons I’ve embraced exactly two years ago and the grace of God I know I am an extra step closer to my goal.

What’s Next?
