Working Hard

One of my friends asked me, how do you secure your family financially? Do you depend on your income from your job alone?

Ever since I had a child, I really see to it that I save money from my job. And since I have two kids now, I always budget my money and see to it that I have separate money for my kids' security including their education and health and for my personal and family expenses.

But I don’t always depend on my job; instead I invest into something like gold coins and real estate that I know will be practical for us since the values are often high and there are lesser chances that it will depreciate even for a longer period of time.

I don’t usually do this before but as my family grows bigger, I finally realize that I should not risk our future and I should be ready for whatever circumstances that may happen.
