Personal Finance Education

I’ve been doing a lot of reading in the past few months.

I realized that my financial knowledge is not wide enough. I may know (or I think I know) about interest rates or minimizing debt, but I realize that there is so much more to learn.

From what I have read so far, one of the best investments we can make is investing in our minds. Investing in our financial education will help us make better financial decisions and filter out the scams.

If we are starting out in the world of investment and wealth building, we should ‘invest’ our time and money in financial education before we invest a single ringgit.

It really pays to know what you are doing. If you know what you are doing, investment becomes less risky. You can then maximize returns.

In the course of my reading frenzy, I have discovered that I have made some mistakes in my investments.

All that time wasted (although I didn’t lose money). But my returns could have been better.

It is with this frame of mind that I wish to share some of the wonderful resources that I have found. In the next few weeks I will begin a new series called Personal Finance Education.

I hope to share some important investment concepts that I’ve read about. I will also do some book reviews. Finally I will let you know some frugal ways to increase your personal finance knowledge.

    Adino: It’s not our anniversary yet, but thanks 🙂

    I did this post because I have removed the Wedding link from my blog menu, so I converted it into a post.

  2. My financial knowledge also no good. At least you go to study nia… I just know to save to bank.. but if you know investment le.. good le.. can earn extra money..

    Adino: Actually all it takes is reading a few books that are easy to understand, then you will get the basics.

    I highly recommend the books written by Azizi Ali, because they are down to earth, easy to understand and most important of all, written in a Malaysian context.

  3. Knowledge is Power!!

    So read alot. Besides that I read and learn alot by just GOOGLING..

    Knowledge is free, some cannot even be gained if you buy books or attended paid seminars 😛


    Adino: I read a lot, but sometimes I find a lot of authors talk about the same thing. It seems like they’re copying each other or something haha.
