Book Review: My Key Takeaway from Money Grows on Trees

It's amazing how a simple book can have a big impact, how a change in mindset can bring tremendous results. Thanks to Clarissa Seriña-de la Paz and Sharon Que's latest book Money Grows on Trees, I finally realized what can be improved in my investment and business strategies — my money mindset.

Money Grows on Trees by Clarissa Seriña-de la Paz and Sharon Que

Honestly, when I attended the book launch of Money Grows on Trees (special thanks to Ms. Ace Gapuz and Ms. Maddie Cruz of Blogapalooza for the invite), my only intention was to experience attending one and have something to post on my blog. In fact, I thought that being inspired by the experiences of the authors (plus the opportunity to meet Ms. Alice Dixson in person) was already a bonus. :P Little did I know that the book will change how I condition my mind to have an abundant mindset, something I never really paid attention to in the past 11 years, to achieve my current goals and set more grandiose ones. (I started my journey to financial freedom in 2006, and since then, I've read a lot of finance books, got into mutual funds, UITFs, stocks, bonds, and other investments. I've become a financial literacy advocate, and in 2015, I started a finance blog called Make Your Peso Grow.)

Product Review: ZappLight - LED Light and Bug Zapper in One

Last month, I received an interesting device from Clean Concept LLC, an LED light bulb combined with bug zapper, which they aptly called ZappLight. It's an easy to install, easy to operate device; ZappLight fits perfectly on existing light bulb sockets and utilizes the same switch to go through its 2 modes of operation (light + zapper, zapper only mode).
