Four years ago, I migrated from the Philippines to Canada..and starting a new life in a foreign country was really tough. Working double jobs, going to school at the same time – that’s how I managed to establish myself on my first year. But I think I got pretty lucky to have read your book “Smart Women Finish Rich.”
On that same year that I was working really hard, I started to pay myself first for $137.00 a month (Automatic bank withdrawal), and little did I know of, I have $5,000 in my account, three years later.
With the portion of that money, I was able to invite my parents to come over and visit Canada. We have celebrated Christmas together and right now, we are cherishing our happy moments together. Without that extra money, I wouldn’t be able to pay for their plane fares/tickets – $2,800.
That money may seem to be so small amount but it has a significant effect in my life and my parents. I am so happy whenever I see them enjoy the beauty of “snow” (sounds funny but we never had snow back home. My parents are 62 and 60 years of age, and it’s their first time to see the snow.
Thank you David for sharing your knowledge and experience to all people, no matter who they are or where they come from…
More power to you.
