What is FQ?
Financial Intelligence Quotient is the ability to make sound decisions 
and ACTIONS in handling one's personal finances.

The Basic Laws of Money:
1. Pay yourself first.
2. Get into a business you understand. Seek advice only from competent people.
3. Make your gold work for you. Make an army of gold before you buy luxury.

Remember to:
Step 1: Open your child's Bank Account
Step 2: Save regularly no matter what!
Step 3: Go beyond Saving. Invest for growth.
Step 5: Cut their financial umbilical cord once they graduate.

FQ Mom Guideline: "Buy luxury ONLY IF you can afford to buy 10 pieces of it."

"Every child needs a head start on the Basic Laws of Money.
Every adult needs to remember how simple the laws are." ~ Rose Fres Fausto

I have a lot of learnings from this event. I'm really inspired to raise money smart kids and be intentional in teaching them about finances especially that I have two boys who will become future leaders. I just can't wait for my son's first investment! I'm more confident now because I have a better idea on where to jump start his investment. 

I never knew that kids should have their own savings account as early as the day they were born. My two boys doesn't have their own accounts yet but this is something that we will consider and pray about. I also like the idea of cutting their financial umbilical cord once they graduate. This will help them to become independent and responsible individuals. "Raising your children with HIGH FQ is arming them with Economic self-defense!".

I'm glad it's never too late to learn all these things. I'm so blessed to be in this event. Many thanks to Aina Marie De Roxas and Eugene Sugian of Lancaster New City for having me.
