Frequently Asked Questions
I started a personal finance blog in Singapore because I believe that many people could benefit from learning more about personal finance management. Singapore is a country where people have high standards of living, but also high costs of living, and I want to help people achieve financial stability and security through education and actionable advice. I am no where near financially stable but I hope to use this blog to document my financial journey. Besides that, I would like to use this blog to gauge my growth as a digital marketer. Working as a digital marketer in the day, I advise client on how to improve their SEO strategy but I never really got the chance to do SEO for myself.
I plan to cover a wide range of personal finance topics, including budgeting, saving, investing, retirement planning, debt management, insurance, and more. I will also provide insights and advice on how to navigate the unique challenges and opportunities of the Singaporean financial landscape. Angling it in a Singaporean context is extremely crucial for engagement and I hope to value-add by including my own opinions and thoughts on various issues.
My personal finance blog is designed to benefit anyone who wants to improve their financial literacy and make better financial decisions. Whether you’re just starting out in your career, a young family looking to save for the future, or a retiree looking to manage your investments, my blog will provide valuable insights and practical advice. Of course, all content expressed are my personal opinion and should not be taken as professional financial advice.
