I was able to attend the Money Summit & Wealth Expo last week as a blog partner. I had to fly from Bacolod the day before and took two days of leave from work. But it was all worth it. Never had I see so many people wanting to learn more on investing and personal financial in one venue. Their energy and enthusiasm were very inspiring. There were many of us also who came from the province just to attend the event.
Learning Curve has chosen their speakers well. They are not only successful in their field but are also good speakers and can convey the message to the audience without using too much financial jargon. I was glad to finally meet in person Heinz Bulos of Moneysense Magazine. I got acquainted to Heinz when he was doing an article on the Best Places to Live in the Philippines in 2008 where he interviewed me in that article. Little did I know that after two years, he will contact me to be a blog partner for the Money Summit & Wealth Expo. Oh boy, and I’m so glad he did!
When I started this blog, it was with the intention of getting connected to those who want to be financially independent. My money habits were so bad that I am still reeling from the mistakes made in the past (read: credit card debt). The summit inspired me to try harder in achieving my financial goals.
The speakers were very inspiring. Some were so young when they made their first million. Others experienced a tragedy in their life yet survived and became financially independent. Others help their fellow Filipinos through employment and mentoring.
Maricar, a friend who was with me at the summit, told me that there are no coincidences. The people we meet and those around us are there for a reason. I guess she’s right. God knows I still need more efforts for my financial makeover that’s why He brought me to the Money Summit and Wealth Expo. I hope those whom I gave the tickets to get to learn as much as I did. There are so many money making opportunities presented and we just have to choose which path to take.
Here are some of their testimonials:
The Money Summit and Wealth Expo 2010 was an event that was both informative and inspiring. The speakers were highly effective in sharing their knowledge and experience with money. I believe that The Money Summit and Wealth Expo 2010 was very successful and should be continued every year so as to educate people on the different creative ways to earn big from something small. – John Lopez
All I can say after attending the Money Summit, is that the event was life-changing. I was surprised that the event was able to alter my perceptions when it comes to making investments. Initially, I had no idea how investing works (stock, forex, real estate… etc), and I thought that these topics were boring (not to mention, complicated!). However, the speakers presented it in such a way that it was easy to understand, which really made me excited about all their topics (there were 16 speakers with 16 different topics to learn). This event was really worth it, I can now see a brighter future ahead of me. I hope to attend again next year! – Louie Albert Sioco
