Our May 2014 Member of the Month is
GIG! Congratulations! :yehey:

Here are GIG's responses to our questions.



May 2014 Member of the Month: GIG

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

A quick check shows that I have been a member of PMT since August of 2009. I was looking for anything about the stockmarket and I just gravitate to PMT.


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

It's hip because all we talk now is in terms of gigabyte, but I choose this, GreedIsGood, because I really do believe that to be successful you have to be a bit greedy and take care of yourself. You have to have the self attitude like this is mine, I deserve this etc.


3. What are your hobbies or special interests?

Stocks, books, science, computer games, food . . . and a lot more
 

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

I used to race cars and motorcycles in the street . . . with traffic . . . those were the days.


5. How is GIG in PMT different from GIG in real life?

Pretty much the same


6. How do you make money? Share to us your sources of income so we can be inspired as well.

Well I'm still stuck with my day job cause they wont let go of me yet. My wife runs her own business, and we have rental properties. Stocks is what I like to do until the foreseeable future.


7. Can you tell us tips or suggestions that guide you in order to succeed financially?

Know what you really like to do in your life. Then work on it. A lot of us wants to enjoy the good life but few of us are willing to put in the effort.


8. What is your ultimate personal goal that you want to achieve?

Free time to do what I want every second of everyday.


9. If there is one thing you can change about the Philippines, what would it be and why?

Confidence in our new economic vigor. I think this is the start of our golden age. Lets believe,  be productive and be part of it.


10.Your motto or guiding principle in life?

At the onset, find your happiness.


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

a. Favorite movie?

recent lang para di halata edad hehehe: series True detective


b. Favorite song or music genres?

alternative rock : gin blossoms . . . and John Mayer


c. Favorite actor/actress?

paul walker, matthew mcconaughey


d. Favorite sports?

running and swimming


e. Beach or Mountain?

beach definitely


f.  Kapuso, Kapamilya or Kapatid?

Kapatid only because of interaksyon business news hehehehe


g. Mar Roxas or Jejomar Binay?

I dont like them both but I go with Binay


h. Money or fame?

love most of all. Then down there . . . money comes first than fame.


i. Marry intelligent but ugly person or marry stupid but beautiful person?

As usual never compromise on these things. Beautiful and intelligent of course.


j.  To love or be loved?

To love and be loved. Don't ever compromise on that


==========

Thanks and congrats again, GIG! :clap:

PMTers, now's your time to congratulate our May 2014 Member of the Month! :applause:

23, the night I decided to pursue my future wife. She was with a close male friend at that time and I know that I just had to get her for myself.

Bravo!!!  :D

As for the other aspects of your life (career, wealth, political ambitions  :watchuthink:, etc.), did you have help from any counseling or did you DIY everything yourself because you are a know-it-all-by-my-way kind (I kid I kid  :hihi: but, you know what I mean)

The month is not yet over. Say congrats to our May Member of the Month, GIG! Ask him questions while he's still in the hot seat and willing to respond to your questions! :)

To GIG: what is that one thing that you want to do or want to achieve this year 2014?

Sorry Guys hindi ko madalas makita ang thread na to.

@FutureGizmo

2014 Goal: Close in on my target investment fund. Im at 50% of my goal and I hope to bring it to near    75%.

@INDO

You should have an investment vehicle in mind before you get that. You see when you have money or in this case a loan, you get to be too quick on your judgement and prudence is somewhat sacrificed making you prone to do bad decisions leading to bad deals. Look for good investment first, then reconsider the offer. I don't do leverage on my stock trading so right now I would probably put that in rental properties, the thing is I did not find any bargain plays in that area ... but Im still searching.
