I’ve spent almost an hour surfing online trying to find financial modeling classes either in the Philippines or in Taiwan. The former because am visiting there soon, and the latter because well, I live here.

After sharing with my boss and colleagues the good news of passing an all-important exam, I feel that I have to continue my momentum and try to learn even more about equity valuations, developing financial models and basically, understand more the industry I’m in.

It seems to be a good time to do so: the stock market’s extremely volatile and January’s usually the slowest month, so I’ve been spending the days looking for ways to increase my knowledge.

It’s hard though. The only financial modeling class available online is from these guys called Terrapinn, who offer 2 to 5-day classes worth a freaking USD 6,000!

My god. How many months shall I work before I can even get that type of cash?! Money doesn’t grow on trees!

However, without such knowledge, how can I grow at work? In the long-run, it should be worth it…

So here I am, home on a nice Friday evening, checking out financial courses available.

How boring can you get?! :0(

Woe is me…


About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    Money spent for one’s education is always good investment that will pay back many times over.

    There are quite a few good books on financial modeling — but probably hard to find in Taiwan. I always get mine when in bookstores in the States or Hong Kong or Singapore.
