Rest & Recuperate from Trading

I’ve been trading for quite some time now. Paper trading as well as REAL trading since I was probably 19? “Play-play” trading for even way before that.

I’ve decided recently to take an R&R for a little while. Situations have changed and will change even further in the next few months. Hence, I need to re-evaluate my position and make a few changes to my trading plan and objectives.

Blogging Your Way to Financial Freedom

Blogging your way to financial freedom. Is it really possible? Personally, I’m rather sceptical. Unless you’re giving full-time attention to it and have a vast network of blogs and websites, then it’s hard I reckon. It’s possible, but it’s hard.

Being a blogger is just another job. You can create some side income with it like what Kenny Sia and a few others have done but I doubt that one can classify that as a passive income. It’s not really an investment-like venture. The reason is that if one neglects his blog, not much money can be made. Also, a lot of efforts need to be put to market your blog. Blogging professionally is more business-like I think.

Why do I like to blog about money?

Why do I like to blog about money? Because it has been an interesting journey in itself!

Here are some other reasons:

1. I want to be financially free and wealthy one day.

2. Learn from people. For example, about ASB’s maximum amount. I didn’t know about this before.

3. Improve my writings. Even if my writings may be construed as a little informal, it does give me some practice.

4.Get inputs from people. People might not agree with me but if everything is kept civilised, I’m fine with it. After all, it was said that “Perbezaan pendapat adalah satu rahmat.” Sometimes, before I write, it forces me to do more research (through the net, through the books, through people) to improve the accuracy of my writings (although sometimes, I have to admit that accuracy is a tad compromised).

5. My arguments may be weak but I believe by writing more and more about it, I will be able to improve.

6. Share my ideas with the world (even though sometimes people may not agree and can viciously attack me through e-mails and comments).

7. Perhaps blogging could boost my confidence a little bit? Give me the courage to share ideas with people?

Retirement: Nadlique’s Point of View

You see, the main aim of this blog is to document my journey towards financial freedom.

The thing is, what is financial freedom to me? Does it mean that once I’m financially free, I can retire, quit my job, and spend my days relaxing on the beach? Well, no.

You’ve got to make life choices sooner or later

Choices that I’ll be making and pathways that I’ll choose in the next 6 months will lead me to either two ofΒ  these situations:

My life will go into a spiral dive…

or…

my life will be a successful and happy one.

And I’m really afraid that it’ll be the former… If I fail, I’ll fail big time…

But hey, that’s life! Think positive πŸ˜€

How to become a financial planner in Malaysia?

I’ve always wondered what is it like to become a financial planner in Malaysia? How do you become one anyway?

Here in Australia, you need to hold the Australian Financial Services License (AFSL) or be an authorised representative of that licensee to be able to give out financial advice.

How about in Malaysia? What are the procedures? Do you need to get a green light from the Securities Commission?

Also, is the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) qualification from the Financial Planning Association of Malaysia (FPAM) qualification imperative? How about wanting to become an Islamic Financial Planner?

Is there such thing as a part-time financial planner? Perhaps, on a freelance basis/work at home sort of thing?

For those in the know, please share your knowledge so the rest of us could benefit. Thanks guys!

Who reads my blog?

Sometimes, I wonder how many people actually pay attention to my blog and who are these people.

It also scares me to death that there are a lot of professionals and intellectual people out there who may have stumbled upon this blog πŸ˜›

Entah apa dia orang fikir agaknya.

Apparently, after my blog came out in The Malay Mail (link), my dad also reads my blog now. Adoi.. sekarang kena banyak censorship la πŸ˜€

Pa, if you are reading this, may I redirect you to this entry here. << tekan sini πŸ˜‰

One thing for sure is that I try my best to voice out my ideas and thoughts. Kalau korang tak suka, peduli apa. Bukannya korang kenal aku pun πŸ˜‰

Anyway, just out of curiosity, do write in the comments section about who you are and where you come from.
