Make Wealth Flow Towards You!

How To Make Money Run After You (Part 1)

Posted by on Aug 3, 2011 in Money Management | 407 comments

Wealth is never destroyed, only transferred


Today, I want to share a very special topic — How to make money run after you. This is a topic that I have never shared with the public before now. It is I believe something that anyone and everyone can and should benefit from, especially those who have been looking but could not yet to find a job. For those working very hard but still not having enough to make ends meet. For those who are stressed out with not having enough money, and are becoming desperate, this article is for you.

Don’t think for one second that because the world is in financial crisis that there is no more money going around, the truth is far from it. The fact is, the world is literally overflowing with money.  It may not seem like it to you right now my dear reader but read on and let me enlighten you.

Always remember this: Money is never destroyed, only transferred.

Wealth, on a daily basis is constantly being transferred from those who do not know how to handle money to those who know how. Even, and most especially, during financial crisis, does what I just said hold its truest meaning. My goal in this article is to make you one of those people where wealth is transferred to and not taken from.

First let me take the most recent financial crisis, break it down for you and explain how wealth was transferred in relatively simple terms, then let me show you the steps to take today so that we begin the process of “wealth flow”.  This article will be the first of a series, and after each article I will give you an activity or task to do. If you seriously want money to run after you, I strongly recommend that you follow the assignments for every article and give me feedback every step of the way.

In the most recent financial crisis in the US that started June of 2007 and reached its peak in October of 2008, the US stock market and consequently the Philippine Stock market had lost more than 50% of its value. Most people panicked and took out their money, or whatever that was left of it for fear of losing even more. When they did that, they lost half of their wealth in just a few short days, which took almost a lifetime to build. As of September 29, 2008 according to CNN money, approximately $1.2 Trillion dollars was wiped out in the US alone.

Let me repeat: The money was not lost. It was merely transferred.

During the same crisis, there were a few, very few brave souls who bought those stocks at extremely low prices. They held on to it, and became a whole lot richer overnight.

**Warning: Do not get overwhelmed with what I’m going to share next; Even if my examples are in Billions of US dollars, the principles that I want you to pick up, will and can be applied to your situation. Also, and more importantly, do not put in everything you have in any investment vehicle because of this. This is not the point of my example**

In the US, the most notable figure to do this of course was Warren Buffet who at the time bought a significant chunk of shares of Goldman Sachs in September 2008. Despite the odds and the panic, Buffet bought those shares at basement bargain prices, He invested $5 billion, held on to it during the worst of the crisis (which was October 2008), and turned it into $8.7billion just recently. Another similar story, although he did not buy stocks but rather bet against them (a.k.a. short trading), John Paulson of Paulson and Co. made a killing betting against the US subprime mortgage market. He made $4 Billion after the worst of the crisis was over. Although Buffet and Paulson were the few covered by the media, there were more who made a killing as well, the public at large just didn’t know it.

Okay, you might be thinking well those guys are professional investors, how can I ever come close to doing that myself? Well, first let me explain that this is just one of many, many examples of “wealth flow transference”. You don’t have to be in stocks or investments to apply what I will be teaching you in the next few articles. And for those of you who know me and have been following my many articles, you know that I will teach you how to do it in a very practical and “anybody-can-do-it” way, so please, read on.

Also, I will not be saying that you cannot be a billionaire, I will leave that option wide open for anybody willing to try, but before we think about billions, or even millions, let’s first come back down to earth and start with the basics.

How and where do I begin?

I’m designing this and the succeeding articles to be very thorough and slow so that you not just understand it but experience it by applying it into your life, article by article. Of course you can go faster if you wish and I will inform you how to do that in the very, very near future.

In the meantime, this should be your first “realization” for this article– Running after money if you do not know how to manage it will result in forever chasing after money. Get your house in order first, build a strong foundation for money management first and you will see that the money will start running towards you and staying with you!

Now to learn and apply this lesson, here are your first assignment(s)

        • Jerwin

          Hello Sir So,

          I really appreciate the information being shared. I was interested in the fact that even in a crisis money can still be made, really it is a testament that even a misfortune can be turned into an opportunity. Hope to learn more in the future.

    • Lilia


      Thank you very much for sharing knowledge for free w/ us. More power & I expect more inspiring articles from you. Little by littel I apply it to myself & I share it also my brother’s & sisters.

  4. Mark Arevalo

    Hi mark thanks for the inspiration, motivation, experiences that you shared to us, you really gods gift to us, keep it up! Happy monster pips to you godblessed:-)

  5. precius david

    hi mark, it’s my first time to ‘really’ read through your article and i sure am bent on applying the learnings. i have been in constant struggle to make ends meet, where income is never equated with expenses (there’s always a negative variance!). i watched mr. colayco and a few financial advisors say that it’s all about money management, and though i find it quite a challenge, i do agree it’s not how much you earn but how you handle it that matters. one point mentioned that i would like to keep is this – income less savings equals expenses, and not income less expenses equals savings. hard but practical. looking forward to more tips mark, kudos to you for sharing your expertise =)

    • markso

      Hi Precius, everything worth doing in life is never easy as it takes real effort. So if you really want to make ends meet, it is worth the effort of not just reading what you must do. You really must do it. Take the hard road and you will see results soon enough. The hardest part is always the first few steps. After that, it becomes easier as you progress. Keep reading, keep applying so that you keep learning.

  6. marivic

    Hi Mark! thank you very much for sharing this wonderful article. Actually all of your articles are very inspirational and advantageous. Thank you for keeping us motivated and encouraged. God Bless you and your family. Be safe always.

    “Running after money if you do not know how to manage it will result in forever chasing after money”…I guess I am one of those always running after the money. I am 5 years now working here in the Middle East and still no savings, no house in the Philippines, etc….I’m glad to found this site and will look forward to receive more inspiring articles!

  12. Boikhutso

    Money management is critical for me right now, I’ve been married 11 months now, with a 1 month old beautiful daughter, and really want to stop chasing “making ends meet” for my ladies. I work as a health researcher and have always dreamed of starting a mushroom farming enterprise. Just this friday (09/09/11) I was afforded the opportunity to make this a reality when I was allocated a plot of agricultural land that I had been trying to aquire for the past 4 years. You articles are a great source of information, inspiration and motivation, as I face the challenge of running my own business. God bless.

    PS My wife loves them to (your articles),so they facilitate our discussions on the business we are about to start.

    • markso

      Congratulations! Children always bring luck to their parents. I am glad that you and your wife discuss my lessons. If you and your wife have not yet done so, please subscribe to the wealth plan to make the most out of the project. Talk soon!

  13. Noel De Leon

    Hi Sir Mark! Thank you for sharing this wonderful article. I now realize that money is never destroyed, only transferred. I also learned that one will be forever chasing after money if he or she doesn’t know how to manage it. Thank you for keeping us motivated and inspired. I like the way you simplify money matters for us so that we can easily understand and put the learnings into action. God Bless and more power!

  20. Pia

    I guess I am one of those highly skeptical people. But I have made up my mind to take a chance on you and I hope you can steer me in the right direction. It seems that no matter what I do, how hard I work, how much I earn… I can’t even start paying for the house I dream about. I’ve read so many articles, invested in a lot of business, but I still end up at the bottom of the period. I am curious and I look forward to learn your secrets about “how to may money run after ME.” =)

  23. Jomel O. Villanueva

    Gud day sir,

    Actually I started money management already last year, and was able to finish all my financial obligation, pay off my debts..etc…and suddenly one of my family members had some serious illness and had to share some amount money for the hospitalization. And my finances, again went back to the bottom…Sometimes luck is not on my side.

    Thank You


    • markso

      Hi Jomel, I understand how you feel, but you see, I thought that way too. But I was wrong, there is a way to turn your “luck” around. There is a way to safe guard your family and yourself from financial catastrophe. If you haven’t done so, please continue reading part 2, 3, and 4 of the series as I start talking about that.

  24. Josephine Yu

    The tendency to panick is always a human reaction in times of financial crises. Even in stock trading, whenever the stock marekt begins to drop, people start to sell. One thing that puzzles me is how to determine when is the bottomline. Like Warren Buffet, he has the guts and he knows when to buy at the bargain price. Is that an art that can be learned?

  25. Romeo Teodoro

    I never thought of money management before. I lost a lot of money because of my ignorance in money management. I am in my late 40’s and still running a lot of money. I really wasted a lot of time and money.

  26. Romeo Teodoro

    Sorry, I should have said “… running after money instead of running a lot of money.

    • markso

      Hi Romeo, it is never too late. This is why the wealth flow project exists. If you haven’t done so, please sign up for the wealth plan so that our articles can be read in the proper sequence and so we can guide you and help you stop running after money.

  27. Geraldine


    thanks for the insight. Now, I have learned that whenever there is a crisis, the money is not destroyed but merely transferred. I hope that you continue to impart your knowledge to us so we can improve our financial aspect of our lives. more power!

    • markso

      Hi Geraldine, not just during times of crisis is money and wealth transferred, it happens every single day. A person who is financially smarter will always make money and wealth flow towards them, while those who are not (yet) financially smart will make money and wealth flow away from them. As a result, the latter will always be running after money and not the other way around. Talk soon!

  28. Gayel S. Mabango

    Hi, Mark. thanks for all the good sharing of your wealth ideas here. I’ve got so much learning from your article and helping me a lot even in my day to day activities.

  29. herald

    Great Article and Program! I squeezed in reading the first article and doing my assignment in the middle of encoding manus of a book we are working on. Your reminder to focus on the “Important” things rather than the “Urgent’ ones motivated me a lot to finish my work after almost a week of sleepless nights so that i could start working on this program. Thanks a lot! and looking forward for more!

  30. Eric

    I chance upon your article at Manila Bulletin while taking care of my mother at the hospital (She died last August 24 due to heart failure). I’m still running after money up to this time. Hope to learn the proper money management through your program. Thanks for having people like you and your wife. Best regards.

  31. Mamy

  32. Mars

    Just started reading your articles. I do agree money managment is the key I have been chasing money quite often and i would like to reverse the situation. I enjoy or articles and it makes a lot o sense. But its really hard to really get started on the right track. Hope this will help me and my family. Thanks.

    Hi Sir Mark, First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your amazing website. I am really proud to have you as one of my respected mentors. I believe this site will help a lot of people. On this article, The most important thing I realized is that “Wealth is never destroyed, only TRANSFERRED”, now it is up to us on how we can think of ways to take a chunk of this wealth that is available for all. Also, I also realized the importance of having an abundant mindset because as you said wealth is never destroyed and wealth is always available to us. It is now up to us to take action, invest in ourselves and think of ways on how to make money run after us. Looking forward on more inspiring articles sir. Regards to your wife and your baby daughter.

  43. Robert Rafson Chua

    Dear mark,

    first, I would like to say thank for taking the time to help people who are willing to learn about money and how to manage it, there’s so much information now a days its confusing which one to follow and some seemed too complicated. I know that money is out there if you get the right mindset but i seem to not be able to cross the bridge from thinking it and applying it i life. i can earn the money but its keeping it that i find hard to do, so i hope by reading your articles i get to be those people that makes wealth flow to them, thank you again for your motivating and inspiring articles.

  44. rickie soliman

  45. tes di

    yes, just like ENERGY (Newton’s Law of Physics) money can never be destroyed or is just transformed into some other states or format…same with money, when you use it smartly it comes back in form of good income and good karma..conversely if youre intention is good karma (like creating more jobs thru your business) you gain more money.

  60. Elena Azurin

    Hi Mr. Mark,

    It’s been 2 years since my resignation and became a full time mom to my 2 kids only to realize that I should have not done it in a rush. The idea of resigning flash to my mind when what I earn is insufficient for my transportation and food as well. Being a housewife now I want to at least have a knowldege about how money are transferred not only to mine hands (hehehe) but also when I achieve it, I can inspire all my neighbors and share how to make money run after us. Thank you that in all the things that you have done and achieved, you still have the courage to share your knowledge about money…. It is something that I remember about “SHARING” when you have already much.

    Hi Mark and Jhoanna,

    This is really an amazing thing to do for the Filipinos. Investing has never been popular here and many people would really benefit from this. I just hope this reaches those people who would opt to invest, go into business and improve their careers. God bless you more! Mabuhay kayo!

  68. jay jay sycip

    I still believe in the biblical principle that Love of Money is the root of all evil…I’m always reminded by what my father always tell me…”Son, don’t let your money be your master, instead your money should be your servant.”

    Hi Sir Mark, I’m just a a fresh college graduate and I’m just starting to earn salary…I hope this could really help me in building my future… Thanks and more power to you…God bless!

  72. TJ

    I am just starting to read your articles and got interested actually because someone here in the Philippines, and a Filipino, is sharing principles applicable also in the Philippines. I used to buy books about finances, but the authors, being Americans, the advice I would get does not apply to the economics in the Philippines. I’m hardworking but can’t earn enough, while the lazy ones, those who get up late, I noticed, are already rich. They even work less but have most of the profits. Just not fair. Well, I hope I can learn something from your project series. Thanks for even sharing and teaching in plain language.

  73. Bertie Salomon

    I truly appreciate this post. I have been looking all over for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thank you again

  74. Johnson G. Panolino

    thank you MARK for the article. Very helpful and practical. Continue your desire to help other by sharing the knowledge you have. may GOD continue to bless you and keep you.

  75. Rodolfo . Guerrero

    Hi Mark,

    Today is a nice blessing to me because i was able to read your column that gave me leads to your site. I feel God gave me a gift because he knows I have problems handling money. There is a money flow but it seems I couldn’t make it grow. Reading your articles will be part of day regularly starting tomorrow. God bless.

    Best regards,


  76. Racs

    Hi Mark,

    I was very fortunate to stumble upon your article in Manila Bulletin last night.
    This was the first thing in my mind today and I told myself that I will sign up to your website no matter what happens. And I believe I found a fountain of knowledge on how to build wealth.
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and may God bless you more for being a guide and beacon of light to other people. I look forward to reading more great articles from you and applying the lessons to my financial affairs. 🙂

    Best regards,

  77. DON

    Hi, Mark
    I have been trying to educate myself about finances but have not been successful in managing my finances. It is indeed a blessing that at the beginning of this year, I came across your article. More power to you.

  78. titus

    the more you share, the m0re will return many times over

  79. Andy Ty

    For starters Mark, I like the phrase “WEALTH IS NEVER DESTROYED, IT IS ONLY TRANSFERED” sounds somewhat like a law of Physics that states, Matter is never destroyed it is merely transformed into energy & vice versa . It,s a law of nature & scientific. I hope the brass tacs will not be to complex & will be attainable . Thanks.


    gudam sir mark!!!

    Hi Mark! Thanks for all these shared wisdom by experience. I am so glad I encountered your site (via your write-ups in Manila Bulletin). These are encouraging views that charges me to act on what I am currently swimming in – loads of debts… thanks for giving me the needed thud to start kicking. I hope to share my success – debt free at last – moment soon. Super thanks and God bless.

  82. Michael Navidad

    This is very inspiring… I am excited to learn more 😀 God bless us…

  85. Sigrid Mcclaskey

    I still can’t quite think I could often be one of those studying the important tips found on your blog. My family and I are really thankful for your generosity and for offering me the chance to pursue my chosen career path. Thanks for the important information I got from your web site.

  86. Jerson Berdos

    wow i enjoyed reading that. a great idea, if i didnt sign up i would know this. thanks mark!!!

  87. Dennis

    Hi Mark and Jhoanna,

    Although there is some source of income (salary), I always find myself transferring them to others (credit card bills, etc.) in a snap. It’s about time to let the wealth stay and grow with me.

    Thanks for the wisdom and keep it up!

  88. cherry

    thanks for the article… better days are coming my way!!!

  89. MDL

    It’s so true that behind every great man is a woman! I admire your wife and how she influenced you. I also admire how you let her! Not many members of the male species can admit that their better half is really the better half 🙂
    Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading more .
    Thanks so much for inspiring people like me who are clueless about money matters.
    I do have so many ideas and when I read your article in the Bulletin and went to your site,
    I gained hope that these ideas may soon come to life.
    Thanks again!

    • markso

      It takes a lot of tough love and honesty, but when you break through and really talk to each other, your marriage will be one of the best things in life that keep you happy and motivated. It is our hope that you do find what it is you are looking for Rita and may it indeed soon come to life.

  90. neilo

    • markso

  103. aldwin

    gud pm sir! just scrolling the bulletin this afternoon and searching for sport column. but things are different right at the moment. magically, i got interested in business section when i read your bizmaker. as of today, im chasing for that running money bcos a have no personal money in my pocket. so recently got your bulletin page and look to the internet.

    talagang may tama po kayo and now i really realize that when im losing money, someone is gaining it.

      Wecome to the project Aldwin. It is our hope that you realize what you need to do to start turning your life around. Keep reading and keep commenting. Best!

  104. James

    Hi! This is much better than a book on wealth management since we can actually talk to the author (you). I’ve yet to finish everything and this is just the start. However, from this first article I’ve read I feel that this is going to be more “custom-made” for us (the Philippine setting) because of Mr So, even though some examples are of foreign markets.

  105. Michael

    Good day sir Mark.
    Thanks for sharing your financial knowledge with us. Have been trying to regularly catch your column at the Manila Bulletin. But sometimes just missed them. That’s why l’m thankful for catching your latest column this week so l can start improving my financial status finally. Thanks and more power.

    • markso

      Welcome to the project Michael. I hope you read all the articles here and then some.keep reading, keep sharing, and keep learning.

  106. das dee


    For 10 years in my working life i was looking for a mentor to lead me to put my life in order, spiritually and financially, i am saddened to realized that it took me that long, maybe i am just slow or im looking in the wrong places, today i understand it more clearly, im still confused then and failed to asked myslef the improtant question, what i really want from life, what i want to accomplish in my lifetime. With your guidance and your “gentle nudge” which i believe i also prayed to get when i am straying from the goal i have set for myself. You are really the One! and for that, from the bottom of my heart and in behalf of my family and friends to whom i would love to share this wisdom, thank you.
    PS. I have read all the articles and im on my way to applying it inot my life until it becomes a second nature.

    • markso

      Awesome Das. Jhoanna and I wish you all the best in your journey, it is because of people like you that make us want to share more. God bless you, your family, and your endeavors.

  107. CJ

    I read a lot of Personal Finance books and the words of Mark So is incomparable to what I have read. Thank you Sir Mark for sharing as I gained additional knowledge.

  108. Nelly Y. Rosario

    Hi Mark! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the project.I just discovered your website in the newspaper this morning and I believe that your articles will be a great help to me.I am now excited to learn from you.Thank you for sharing.God bless you and your family!

  109. german mandia

    i cant wait to start learning again, i mean i know im a good learner, i was in school, until it tapered off somewhere when i started working, i hope i can finish this, pls help me all the way..

  110. Jeffrey


    I’ve been working in a call center for 6 years and I hope that your articles will empower me to earn and save for my future. I saw your article in Manila Bulletin yesterday and this is my first time to visit your site. Well, let’s see how you can change my life. God Bless.


  111. Nelly Y. Rosario

    Thank you for sharing!

  112. Alquin

    Wow! this is it..finally, i found an article that will help me unders tand why i’d always struggling with my finances. Thank you so much Mr. Mark So. hope it will change me.

  113. jose s. magoncia, jr

    dear mark so… truly i have a lot of things to look into cause i oversee a mini grocery and a bakery.
    its not because i have no time but i have to bring my laptop to the store to be able to response/comments on your article… have to close the store at nine in the pam… exhausted to open the internet. Anyway thanks for reminder. its an eye opener. i sure know you mean well to all your readers…

  114. Virginia Y Guzman

    I found you sincere and honest, I hope and pray that this time somebody can help me progress, I don’t know anything about money management and I’m exited to learn, thank you!

  115. Corinne

    I am only 15. Is this applicable to my life?

  116. Rogelio M. de Leon, Jr.

    Good day Mr. So. First, allow me to thank you by being part of your wonderful vision “how to make money run after me?” I simply discerned that one run the risk of losing money if they dont have guts to take the risk.”


    Hope to hear from you..

    • markso

      Having guts and taking risks does not always equate to losing money. There are ways to take risks and still be risk free, so keep on reading and I will teach you and the rest of the readers more. All the best to you Rogelio!

  117. Rogelio M. de Leon, Jr.

    I believe that God has more in mind for us than just money. I came to realize that while my view of making money run after me will happen if I believe that even a penny i had came from God and only be entrusted for me to share with others who needed it most.


    Hope to see you someday!!

  118. karen

    thank you sir for making this site possible for people like me who wanted to learn how to manage money. You are a blessing to many. God Bless you and more power.

    Hi Mark, I never thought of money being transferred. In my mind, money spent money loss. I’m glad I kept the newspaper article where i read your column.

  121. June

    Hi Mark ,
    I saw your column in the news paper and read your article. I never thought of money being transferred , not lost. I’m looking forward to your wealth flow project.

  126. Francis

    thank you sir Mark..first i learned that money was not lost but rather its only transfer from one person to another. the one who handled it properly is more advantage to the who can’t. im excited to read and learn from you sir. thanks a lot

  127. wendy

    Hi Sir mark, actually I know that money is just being transferred but never destroyed. I had saved a little from my previous job but I’m just worried becasue I am not saving as musch as i had compared before…


  128. Grace Lee

    I have always believed that to have extra money, one must not spend on unimportant things. Only spend when it is REALLY IMPORTANT!!! But recently, after having read some of your articles at the manila bulletin, i realized that this isn’t really the way… I am looking forward to reading all your articles and really make wealth/money run after me… More power to you!!! 😀

  129. Aze

    Brilliant,Mark! after months of a search, this what I’ve been looking for. I believe that this is what every Filipino should have. Financial Literacy. I am so excited about this project. Now, I am taking my first step to reach my goal.Financial Freedom. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom.

    I am having a hard time managing my money. I have tried different ways to save and prioritize my needs however, in the end, still no savings. I need more education and “smarts” in money management in order to reach my goal. Thank you, Mark for sharing your expertise.

    I will read article by article and apply what I will learn. I will share this to my family too.

    More power, Mark!

  152. Danilo Mier Imperio

    I Knew your website because of Manila Bulletin, August 22, 2012 issue; “How to Trade Forex on-line”

    It’s true that money is never been destroyed but only transferred. I’m a civil engineer and business man and your statement in not contradictory to the Law of Physics i.e. Law of Conservation of Mass. It state that mass can not be destroyed but only transform from state to another. It does not go anywhere , it is just around you.

    I hope someday you can teach me how to become financially prosperous so that I can generate more jobs and opportunities for our fellowmen.

    My name is Danny and i am from Davao.

    I hope to read of your works Sir Mark So.

    Thank you very much.

  153. Robert

    Hi Mark,

    This is the first article I read from your site and I just want to stop by and comment. I can already sense more inspiring, practical and actionable articles from you as I read through.

    It was only recently I learned about the concept of ”Wealth is never destroyed, only transferred.’ It was indeed an eye-opener for me. It inspired me to improve my financial literacy, which was almost zero at that time.

    I’m in a similar situation as you before, where I earn more than average, but still struggled in my finances. I’m in my early 40s now. I wished someone taught me about financial education in my earlier days. But it’s never too late as long as we have the desire to learn and apply what we’ve learned.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge.


  154. nieves

    Hi Mark,
    I am truly grateful to have found your site accidentally. This early I can sense that I will learn a lot from you as the first article that I read is truly uplifting and educational. Thanks for sharing. I do hope that I can follow through. God bless you and your family.

  165. Ruel A.

    Hi S’Mark,

    You know what? I forgot how I encounter this site. hehe!! But what one thing for sure, I’m very hungry to learn on something that would help me to achieve my dreams, financial freedom. Probably our Creator listen to my prayers and He find ways for me to know a person that can help me. And I think the law of attraction really exist. I’m glad that I encounter you and your sites/blog. Your right Mark, I observe in my life, that no matter how busy I am in my career/job/work, I still, and always, chasing on the money to support my family basic and everyday needs. I hope you can be my mentor. I believe you can help me. Thank you and regards to your wife 🙂

  166. Gigi

    First of all, thank you for finding time to share your expertise. I agree with you that money is not destroyed but just transferred. It is transferred to people who know how to manage their money and know where to put their savings.

    Thanks Mark .

  167. faye

    Hi mr. mark,

    At first, I was just curious what is this all about. After reading your first article, I got interested..
    Honestly, we spend already millions of pesos, just like that. I am broke and I wanted to invest
    whatever peso left in my pocket. I am glad and thank my Dean who showed me one of your article and I immediately got your webssite.

    I am positive that you will be there for us who needs your advises. Hope to hear from you again and very soon. God bless you..

  173. Marlito

    Hi Sir Mark!

    I found out about this site while I was browsing the discussion board section of forexclubasia. I was actually waiting for your trading signal when I realized that it is only monday, so I decided to browse the site and read your article “Can you trade forex for a living?”. I am glad I did because your articles here are very educational and will help me to manage the money I would earn from forex trading (with your help also). Thank you so much for doing this. You are blessing so many people by helping us to become financially intelligent. God bless you even more!

  174. tata

    whenever i get a chance to read Manila Bulletin , i read your column first . I’m always interested in money management and how to grow it . Once i read the paper beside the computer and here I am …thanks for these active online lessons i know it will bear me fruit .

  175. Nicanor

    Mark, I am one of those that lost a fortune during the market runaway of the nineties by being short. Lesson learned: timing is better than being right.

  176. Anthony D. Ang

    First, I would like to thank you for unselfishly sharing your knowledge and wisdom to us.
    Your advise are very valuable. I’ve lost some of my savings making wrong investment choices and I am still not confident whether I’m doing the right investment now.
    I am looking forward to find out and learn more from your lessons.
    God bless!!!

    Good evening Sir Mark,
    Thank you for the above article, it pays to be liquid when crisis abounds if and only if you have the cash to buy the stocks, it reminded me of the first coup de etat where the price of PLDT was so dirt cheap, unmanindful of the uncertainties – I can only afford to gape ( having no cash to spare ) because I firmly believe that businesses has to go on and so must every people continue to earn their living as a matter of survival.
    Thank you again for sharing your wisdom.

  182. Myra

    Hi Mark and Jhoanna! Thank you for your article. I have admired you both since I read your profile. Thank you for sharing this with us. I am also one of those who can’t hold on to money long. The lot seem to be just passing my hand and transferring to another in a short time. Hmmm… I’ve always thought that money is just there. I seem to work just to spend it. Now you’ve enlightened me otherwise. Hope to learn loads from your next articles! Keep up the good work!

    Hi Mark,

    Thank God that I have found you and your site as well.
    Probably, right now I should say that i am an average
    Income earner. As an OFW, my salary is far well off
    From my previous job but how long does this last?
    That’s the question. That’s why i want to learn from
    You and from your experience on how to handle money
    Matters and be financially stable. I have tried FOREX last time
    But it did’nt work out. My investment goes down the drain.
    Anyway, i’ll keep on reading your articles because i know
    I have a lot to learn. Thank you.

  192. Jurdan Escobedo

    Hi Mark,

    This is the second article that i read in this site and this is once again my “aha” moment. I realized that you are definitely right, money is only transferred, i now come to the conclusion that since money is overflowing, i might have a chance to have a chunk of it.
    I am a newbie here, but im really looking forward to reading more articles from you. Thanks

    The mind is willing, but the body is not. How can you help me with that?

    • markso

      If your body is unwilling no one in the world will be able to help you. So if you want help from others, you must first help yourself

  205. william p. ma

    good day, mark.

    Hi! Mark. This article is the answer that I’ve been searching for so long to answer my money problems. Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m very excited to check review the succeeding articles. You and your wife’s work is truly a blessing.

  207. Katrina Valdez

    Hi, Mark!

    This article definitely piqued my interest. I’m excited with what’s in store for me on this project. I’ve been learning about financial management because of the desire to provide well for my family especially my (future) children (I have 1 child at the moment). I wish now that I’ve been more responsible with my money when I was still single. But, hey, it’s not too late.

    I’m looking forward to read the rest of your articles.

  208. Jem Castro

    Hi Sir Mark. I was in the hospital (as I need to rush my mother for some complications) when I read your article in Manila Bulletin while waiting on the result for her laboratory tests. I was so broke that night as I wanted to help our family (my sister and brother) for all the expenses in the hospital but I honestly don’t have any savings at all. I would always ask myself if why am I always on the bottom of my financial life where I have a very decent and good job as a marketing manager in a dental company and I am running a small business with my wife which is web development and designing.

    I intently searched this website of yours because I know that the Lord is bringing in help for me. At times I would prefer “cash” help from the Lord but he would give me “ways” to acquire it. This is where I know where you are right now, one of the “ways” help from Him.

    Thank you for this article. I am getting excited to finish this commenting “assignment” that you have stated above (Just kidding!). Clicking on the next article now.

    Godbless Sir Mark!

  249. John Dela Pena

    Hi Mark,

    Your article is an eye opener for me. Actually I am one of your student sa forex. When I was your student you are still developing the unlitrade nun kaya free pa ang pagenrol nun. Parang you are still trying it pa nun. I stopped muna sa forex trading for the unlitrade kasi hindi ko sinunod yung turo mo na if you will be trading using unlitrade ganito dapat yung amount of money na ipapasok mo. I got greedy na gusto ko kumita agad in a short span of time kaya medyo naubusan ako but actually I still have some money left and for starter will first use the single trades that you are offering. Kaya sabi kong eye opener para sa akin yung article mo kasi my problem is money management. I will keep on reading your articles and hoping can inspire me.

  250. Clint Imperial
