Happy new year to all readers! On this first day of 2014, I would like to pen down some thoughts with regard to how the previous year had panned out for me, as well as my new year resolutions for 2014.
2013 had been an incredibly good year for both my career and my blog as well. Readership for my blog, SG Wealth Builder, has soared from 50,000 page views in 2012 to 440,000 page views in 2013. The dramatic increase was due to my commitment to blog more often, surge in my blog’s email subscription and also due to the expansion of my blog network. These factors had contributed steady flow of readers to my blog and spiked up the traffic.
Invest in myself
Many people, myself included, tends to chase the money and invest in everything under the sun (stocks, ETF, property,gold, unit trust, etc). Everything, except themselves. We all failed to realize that our knowledge, ability and skills are the most important asset that help us to generate recurring income through jobs, sales, investment and business activities. Henceforth, most of us tend to neglect investments on acquiring new knowledge or skill.
Invest in health
As cliché as it may sound, health is really wealth. Many Singaporeans slog hard in their younger days, but often neglect their health and end up suffering in poor health in old age. Most of them rely on their family members to help them cope with the hefty hospitalization bills and medical fees. I want to take action and prevent this from happening to me. So my new year resolution for this year is to eat healthier food and exercise at least twice a week.
Making money is important but spending quality times with family is even more important. I have been traveling too frequently for the past one year because of my job. This had reduced the amount of time I could spend with my wife and baby daughter.
