On the one hand, it determines the socio-economic environment and its policies and regulations, and it also provides us with the macro-infrastructure and services that enable businesses to thrive and generate income for both owners and employees. It also provides direct income to many people. It is our duty to contribute to the national fund by sharing some of our profits. However, we should do this intelligently so that we pay.
In order to be able to take your financial future into your own hands, the subject of personal financial planning is a very serious topic that should not be overlooked. As typical Nigerians, we are not known for setting up a personal financial plan and adhering to it religiously. If we could have done this, many of us would not be under so much pressure to stay afloat during this difficult time in this nation’s life.
However, it is never too late to get started. As part of the Proshare Education, Enlightenment and Empowerment campaign, we would look at the various aspects of personal financial planning and how we can apply the core principles to our daily lives.
It is time to take responsibility for your financial future rather than blaming others (either the government for the guidelines you put in place, your family members for not helping when they should have helped, or your father for it that he did not position himself to set aside for inheritance for you – but when you look at it, what are you setting aside for your children or your friend for cheating on you or your spouse for failing She believes and gives up on your dreams.) There is enough blame on you walking around, but the key is that ONLY you are responsible for your life and financial future.
