An introduction to MyPF and what we are out to accomplish.
Welcome to MyPF!
Warmest greetings and welcome to MyPF which was launched in April 2013.
Some of you may have come here from a search engine result or through clicking on an article shared on social media.
Well now that you’re here, what is MyPF?
MyPF is short for My Personal Finances. “My” refers to both me (or rather, you) and also Malaysia as our readers’ focus. Personal Finances refers to financial management for yourself as an individual or family.
Our objective here at MyPF is to help people simplify and grow personal finances. While most topics (and humor) are from a Malaysian perspective, many topics are applicable wherever you may be in the world.
We thoroughly hope you enjoy the articles written that hopefully give you food for thought on simplifying and improving your personal finances towards financial freedom.
Our Purpose: simplifying Personal Finances
Today, the world we live in is one where debt is a norm. Living below your means is increasingly difficult, and income barely keeps up with inflation. The rich seem to be getting richer while the gap between the rich and the middle class is widening.
For you and I, financial education is the single, most powerful driver that makes the most significant difference in our lives. Sadly, financial education is sorely lacking in our schools and homes.
Thus, we need to invest in ourselves to learn, plan and take action for our financial well-being, while avoiding the pitfalls of greed and deceitful gains. The true worth of financial freedom is a life focused not on money but on true freedom in time, wealth, and meaningful relationships.
Our Mission: Helping people grow
We hope you will join us on this journey towards financial freedom.
What Topics are Covered?
