Every month starting February 2013, will honor one outstanding member of the PMT Forum.

Our "Member of the Month" is chosen among members who are seen as consistently active, insightful, dependable and friendly in the forum. He or she can, therefore, be look up to as role model in the PMT community. For us to know better our "Member of the Month," we request our awardee to answer a few questions.

Our February 2013 Member of the Month is
Prospera. Here are her responses to our questions. Congratulations Prospera! :yehey:

1. Hi Prospera! How long have you been a PMT Forum member? Share to us how you discovered PinoyMoneyTalk.

Prospera: According to my PMT profile, I signed up in February, 2006. If I recall correctly, I think I got a private message at a forum I was active at (devoted to HYIPs and autosurfs, I now cringe to admit) inviting me to check out this new website. It wasn't till a few years later, though, that I became a regular visitor, hanging out mainly with members who shared my passion for forex-trading. Now, in contrast, I roam around the board freely and post wherever something strikes my fancy.

2. Why did you choose the username "Prospera"?

Prospera: I just thought it was apt for a forum calling itself PinoyMoneyTalk. Guess what,  I just googled the word and learned that Prospera, besides being the feminine form of the Italian/Spanish/Portuguese name "Prospero", is Latin for "prosperous, lucky, according to one's wishes."

3. What things do you like about the PMT Forum? What about the things that can still be improved on?

Prospera: It's wonderful, first of all, to be part of an online community where Filipinos anywhere can meet up and interact without barriers like age, location, social status, education, etc. standing in the way.(By the way, I like the freedom anonymity brings to reveal aspects of myself I don't get to show in real life--being silly, for one.) There's no question that  PMT fulfills a niche: by being a place where one is able to share financial knowledge with forum members, old and new ones alike; give and/or receive advice even about personal problems or simply to find support and encouragement while battling loneliness as an overseas worker. I've met many interesting people here, too. Who's to say friendships are less real when they're virtual?

As for suggestions to improve the forum, I support the call for putting the rep system back in place. Maybe, to make things less contentious, instead of giving a post a positive or a negative rating, a "thank you" button could be used to acknowledge its value or usefulness.

4. Describe who "Prospera" is, in real life, using only one (1) word.

Prospera: Stoic.

5. Tell us something interesting that we don't know about you.

Prospera: Once upon a time, in college at UP-D, I was the recipient of long, interesting, hand-written letters sent by mail by an anonymous person who used the infinity symbol as his signature (he said it stood for "a snake biting its own tail"). Long story short, I never learned who he was. Mananawagan sana ako na kung sakaling mabasa niya ito, ay lumantad siya at magpakilala...just so I could get this unsolved mystery off my bucket list. ;-)

6. What is your ultimate goal in life?

Prospera:To accrue wealth, fairly and squarely, and to pay it forward.

7. In which income opportunities are you involved in?

Prospera: Forex-trading (which I aim to do for a living one day); some stock-investing

8. Any tips you want to share about how to succeed financially?

Prospera: I don't think I'm there yet, honestly, but I like what pmtmember says in his sig: "Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise."

Also, whenever you're tempted to quit, remember this old Tagalog saying: Ang umaayaw ay di nagwawagi...ang nagwawagi ay di umaayaw.

Wait, there's more! Just for the heck of it...

a. Favorite movie? Romcoms; suspense/thrillers; anything set in New York
b. Favorite song or music genres? Really, really old standards
c. Cat or dog? Cat
d. Money or fame? Money (I prize my privacy)
e. To love or be loved? To love (because it's better to give than to receive)


Thanks and congrats again, Prospera!

PMT peeps, post your messages below to congratulate our Feb. 2013 Member of the Month! If you want, you can ask Prospera more questions and, who knows, she might share more than what she has already told us! ;)

You deserve the title, Prospera! Ikaw na! :hihi:

PMT peeps, pwede tayong magtanong kay Prospera kasi nasa hot seat din siya as part of being the Member of the Month. Eto dagdag kong questions:

1. Have you suffered huge losses from your past investing or trading experiences? How was it? How did you get back up?
2. Kung magiging hayop ka, anong klaseng hayop ang gusto mo at bakit?
3. Sinong iboboto mong Presidente ng Pilipinas sa 2016?
