As a mom of 3, singlehandedly raising them is no joke. Taking care of the financial needs is part of my role. Ever since I became a mom, I never rely on my parents when it comes to my kids’ needs; this became a more challenging on my part when the youngest arrived. And things got ever more interesting when I needed to move to a new home where only my kids and I live. I may have not blessed with someone whom I can rely in all means, I am still glad that I have a reliable job that help me a lot with all our financial needs. But just like how life works, I am a little bit skeptical about the idea of my job as online freelancing doesn’t provide the reliability one can get from working local.
Being financially secured is really essential especially if you have a growing family. This, on the other hand, means more to us, single parents. As I grow older, I learn that I should be financially prepared in all means knowing that kids have only me as their parent, and provider. And I am thankful for Sun Life for being part of my venture as a mom.
So without further ado, when I get the chance to join Sun Life’s event about Financial Literacy talk, I then didn’t hesitate to attend.
Live a Brighter Life
Before anything else, let’s talk about Sun Life and how they started.
