Hello everyone. Thank you very much for watching. Today, I’m very grateful and excited to be able to share with all of you the book that I have just written. It is called “Money Wisdom – Simple Truths For Financial Wellness”.
I’m excited because the idea of this book came about some five years ago but I only managed to complete it today. It is really a labour of love. And I really have a lot of people to thank, to help me with this project.
You see, this book is really a compendium of articles that I have written across different publications such as The Sunday Times, The Straits Times, The Business Times so on and so forth. And it has been written over the past eighteen years.
Read this article published on The Business Times as a recognition for our ethical practices on financial planning and strict adherence to the fee-only model.
There are three themes in this book. The first one is on money. I believe that in the area of personal finance, this is probably one of the most comprehensively written book in the area of our personal financial planning.
It covers practice areas such as insurance, investments, will writing, cash flow, budgeting and even something for the business owners, as well as on topics that oftentimes, Singaporeans are confused with such as our CPF schemes. If you read this book, I believe that you’ll be better prepared to plan for yourself financially.
The second theme of this book is on wisdom. You see, over the last almost two decades, not only I have spent time in this industry but I’ve lived through life. And it’s my conviction that money should not be a goal. Rather it’s an enabler to our goals.
And that is why in all my previous videos and articles, I’ve always talked about first making a life decision and then let our financial decisions support that life decision. I elaborate a lot more about this in this book.
The third theme is about truths. I believe that as an end consumer, you need to know many of the practices that are in this industry. Because once you know it, it will help you better work with an adviser, or even on your own, to plan for yourself financially.
When I first wrote all these articles over the past two decades, the industry was actually upset with me. And I don’t blame them. Because while I stand by the truths and the believes and the principles and conviction of this book, I think that my tone at the time was wrong. I could have adopted a better posture.
By buying expensive whole life plans, not only you cannot cover yourself sufficiently, you are paying for what you do not need. Find out more here.
So, in this book, I’ve rewritten those articles. Keeping to the truths and principles that I still believe in but I’ve kept the tone neutral with a better posture.
So, if you are interested to read this book, I invite you to click the link below to pre-order this book before it hit the bookstores.
Thank you very much for watching and I hope you’ll enjoy this book.
