Last July, we, Manila Workshops and Ready to be Rich Workshops had conducted a Family Finances Workshop. The workshops is actually pretty beneficial for those who are trying to figure out how to handle, manage, and build the finances of their own families.

What is the Family Finances Workshop?
If you want a clear and simple financial plan for your family that you can follow, this is the workshop for you. The event is filled with interactive activities and together, we’ll figure out how you and your family can achieve financial freedom. The facilitator/instructor for this workshop is Mr. Fitz Villafuerte.

Fmaily Finances Workshop

I have worked with Fitz for quite sometime, almost 1 year already, and I can honestly say that I have learned a lot from this guy. He has a blog, entitled, Ready To Be Rich, which has already received several recognition including the Best Business and Finance Blog at the Philippine Blog Awards for two years in a row. Moreover, an international finance publication, Wise Bread, has likewise ranked his website as among the Top 100 Personal Finance blogs in the world. Fitz has also been recognized by Moneysense Magazine as among the top 12 most influential people in Personal Finance in the Philippines.

There are a lot of things that I learned from him that I am now (together with my husband) applying. We have been doing great in managing our household finances. Yes, there are difficulties, but we have managed to keep at it and stick to our plan. What’s good about this workshop is that you are expected to have something tangible to work with when you go home — a concrete work plan on how to achieve your dreams and goals for your family.
