Hello, and welcome to my blog!
My name is Rommel Faunillan. I am a critical care nurse by profession, a husband, father, entrepreneur, and blogger as a hobby.
I have been thinking of starting my own blog for quite some time, but I just didn’t have the courage to start one. I was doubtful, skeptical, and very anxious.
What else that I can still offer if everyone is already doing it? The topics that I will share, for sure, would already have been covered.
However, talking to family, friends, and colleagues – many have been working hard but considered financial literacy – is not a priority as long as they still have active stable jobs. In short, this has led to my desire to share my knowledge with anyone who is interested in improving their financial literacy, just like myself.
I believe learning is a two way process. Sharing what you learn and getting feedback through asking questions and comments, in essence, we are both educating ourselves.
So, here I am – writing my very first post on my blog.
There are a few things that inspired me the most: serving the community and advocating financial literacy to my family, friends, and co-workers.
My passion lies in personal finance, saving, and investing. Whatever I am going to share is a combination of personal life experiences and my dedicated research on these topics.
Additionally, I am no expert in personal finance, nor a financial planner/adviser or have a degree in business and accounting. In fact, far from it, as I am a Registered Nurse by profession.
Above all, I am very fortunate to be in this profession. Together with my wife, we have worked and traveled to four continents. We started our nursing career in the Philippines, our home in Southeast Asia, then worked in Saudi Arabia in the Middle East for 5 years where I met my beautiful wife. Few years later we were on the move again and secured a job in the United Kingdom in Europe and worked for 10 years. Again, opportunity arose and we moved to North America in 2009. Finally, we now call Canada our home and very grateful to live in this welcoming and one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Furthermore, I truly find value in taking different perspectives throughout my life’s existence into account which is why I would like to share what my journey was like and the impact it has had on my personal life!
Lastly, It will be my greatest inspiration if readers will find value in the content of my blog. Thank you all, very much.
