2018 is where I started facilitating Ca$hflow game again after 2 year's break. Not only it's fun to play, it also allows making many financial mistakes without losing real money, and trains one's mind to seek multiple sources of passive income.

There are people who try to convince how successful they are so they can meet up with individual and get them to trust them and pass their hard earned money to them to copy trade or "invest" to reach their "successful" level.
There are people who are out there to help out those who are willing to help themselves by pointing them to the right legit resources to learn how to fish and progress from there.
They don't wanna meet people or "show off" to gain publicity or "trust" so they can use other people money to make their own money.

At every start of the year, we set our goals to achieve, and review it at the end of it.
Relishing our goals may seem hard, however focusing on them is harder.
The unspoken attention that it yearns slows you down.
The flowers around distracts you, with its honey-coated petals.
The trees calling out your name for a rest stop.
The rain drowns out the sounds you should hear.
The rocks eager to descend you groundwards.
The sun showers you into a mental war.
The bees misdirect you in a heartbeat.
This is to all.
Life changes pretty fast. I thought I would have continued as a Financial Advisor, but going through proper training and seeing the culture, its easier to educate by being out of it.
There are also lots of ways to earn for a living, not necessarily selling products.
If I can summarise the year 2018 in two words.
I should've done this earlier, but I've finally settled and set a personal budget overview, and also got some important insurance policies for myself.
