Be Money-smart with Praxis Financial Gym


Praxis Financial Gym

Making smart money decisions is a skill every person should possess and should start even at a young age. Sadly, only 2% of the Philippine population are financially literate. In a 2012 Financial Literacy Study conducted by VISA, the youngest and the oldest are the least prepared for financial setbacks.

Can you afford the life you want?

There was a time in my life when I was spending more than I was earning. It was so easy to swipe the credit card and then hope I'll save enough money to pay for the purchases I made. Although I never skipped payment, my bank savings suffered. 

Last week, I was invited to participate in an exclusive Praxis media event at the newly built Praxis Financial Gym to experience the Praxis Gameplay. It was a fun and interactive learning experience I didn't notice I was already playing for 2 hours and still felt I need more hours to make up with my "wrong" financial decisions.

What is Praxis?

Praxis is an activity that serves as both an entertaining and learning experience to teach people how to effectively manage their money to prepare for their own financial freedom.

My thoughts about Praxis Gameplay

I noticed that my financial decisions during the gameplay reflected how I would act in real life. I am conservative and feel comfortable putting my money in low-risk investments.

Cash liquidity, savings, insurance and retirement are non-negotiable for me. My only regret during the game was not being able to buy at least one property. I passed up the opportunity to upgrade my career and focused too much on saving money to buy a property. I would have saved sooner if I invested money on "education and training" for my career and earn more. (deja vu!!!)
