Free Seminars

We offer FREE FINANCIAL PLANNING SEMINAR ( Mutual Funds, VUL, Insurance, Investments) on the topics of Personal Finance. This will teach you how to build wealth and become Financially FREE. Ideas such as the following will be discussed:

  • What is Financial Independence?
  • People’s behavior on Money
  • Why are most Filipinos Poor?
  • Fundamental of Investments
  • How to Plan for your Retirement?
  • How to Plan for your Children’s Education?
  • How to Plan for your Health (Critical Illness)?
  • How Mutual Funds work?
  • How to Open a Mutual Fund Account?
  • Is Insurance a Good Investment?
  • What are the Different Types of Insurance and which one is the best for me?

At the end of the  seminar you will be able to know:

  • How to build a solid financial foundation regardless of your age or income level?
  • How to make money work for you instead of you working for money?
  • How to get the highest potential of your money?
  • How much Life Insurance do you really need?
  • And many many more…

As they say, No One Plans to Fail. But A Lot of Us Simply Fail to Plan.

Getting rich is not through luck or working hard. You just have to know what to do with your hard-earned money regardless of the amount to make it work for you.

If you think financial education is a waste of time, try ignorance!

Perhaps you could conduct it by that time. Our members will surely be glad!Thank you!

  • Imjessmer

    sir may i ask, when and where will you conduct this seminar 
    Secrets to Financial Greatness?. Because we are financial management students from Cavite state University and we are searching for seminars. 

    • Hi lmjessmer, the seminar is conducted on random venue. We can even do it on your school if you want to.

      • Imjessmer

        may i ask about your upcomming seminars?..

        • Lmjessmer, just check the dates and venue above. This page is constantly updated from time to time.

          • Imjessmer

            ok sir. Thank you. Hope to have a seminar with you sir.

  • Financial seminars DO work and there are thousands of financial advisors and insurance agents gaining new clients at a rapid pace making boatloads of money.  The reason that your financial seminar did not work is that there is a winning formula which you did not possess.

  • Rob
