Money according to dictionary.com has been defined as any circulating medium of exchange, including coins, paper money, and demand deposits.
When I was a child, I thought of money as some kind of reward. I remember getting plenty of it during Christmas from my parents and god parents. Until I grew up a little more and noticed that you have to work hard in order for you to earn some money, that I saw from my parents how they came to earn it.
I vividly remember being taught about money in school during our elementary days on how to identify coins and paper bills from a single centavo up to 500 pesos then. We even brought along with us some play money then.
I only get to have a full grasp of understanding about money when I was in college. Being a Banking and Finance major have made me informed about money and all. But sadly, most were just by the books or I was just too stubborn to put all those knowledge in practice. 😛
This book, “ I Wish They Taught Money In High School” (2-in-1 Book) is an enlightenment on how one can properly manage one’s money.

Again, I was enlightened by the many instances on how she clearly illustrates from her own experiences on we can be able to have a passive income without giving up our day jobs and used our salary to augment our income more.

Again, in this part the author was also able to clearly convey the message and importance of Money in terms of Business.

I love reading the book.
