I’m Janice. I’m a work at home mom and a blogger.
I’m a Personal Finance advocate and I’m also known as “The Pinay Investor”.
Saving and investing money was something that I didn’t learn in school.
Growing up, money was always tight and it was never a topic of discussion in the family, but it usually was the cause of misunderstanding between my parents.
My parents could not afford to send me to college, but I did my best to become a scholar and I graduated with honors.
I was determined to have a job after graduation because I wanted to move out from my relatives’ house and I wanted to send my siblings to college.
I was very happy when I received my first salary and that’s when I started to learn how to save and manage my money wisely.
Back in 2007, I was only earning Php 15,000 a month. I was paying everything including rent, food and groceries, my siblings’ tuition fees, and I was also sending money to my family in the province.
Money was really tight, but I managed to save a little for myself. I put it in a savings account in the bank.
Some of my colleagues earn double or triple my salary, but usually had nothing left before the next pay day.
So it’s really not how much you make, but how much you keep.
Fast forward to 2013, I gave birth to my daughter, Macey. I fell in love with her so much, that I wanted to just stay at home to be with her all the time. So I resigned from my company (where I stayed for 7 years) and took the leap of becoming a work-at-home mom.
I learned about the stock market and started investing and trading. I learned about personal finance and other investments.
Then I learned how to create a blog, where I could write down my journey in personal finance and stock market investing. That’s when my first blog, PinayInvestor.com came to existence.
