Relationships are built on promises: the promise to love, to care, to secure, to protect, and to provide. This is something that Piolo Pascual knows all too well, committed as he is to the promises he has made to his family as a son, a sibling, and a father.
But when financial troubles arise, bringing such promises to life becomes a challenge.
“Like any other person, I want to give my family the best life possible. I am a man of my word, that’s why I work hard and seize every opportunity that comes my way,” Piolo said. “But more than just earning money, it’s how you manage your finances that makes a difference. Fortunately, I have the guidance and help of one very special lady: my very own sister, Chiqui Pascual-Gonzales, who also happens to be my Sun Life Advisor.”

I’ve just recently attended a Sunlife #LiveBrighter Forum wherein they have discussed the how to, benefits and history of Sunlife. Sunlife has been the first and oldest insurance company in the Philippines where it chartered in 1895. With SunLife, they aimed that every Filipinos should live a brighter life i.e. financial secure. Financial security comes in 4 stages which are the following:
- Getting Started – Independence is central for this period. Their careers are taking off along with the desire to experience everything that life has to offer. And this ambitious mind-set also shows in their financial goals such as investing and saving for life milestones such as buying a house or creating a wedding fund.
- Moving Up – Family is a top priority! They are concerned about health after working hard to achieve their goals. With their family’s future in mind, they need to sustain the household’s future income while saving and investing for education funds.
- Planning Ahead – Supporting both their parents and their own family, these added responsibilities highlight the need to ensure continuous support for their dependents. All while looking after their own financial concerns such as healthcare and retirement funding.
- Leaving a Legacy –Though they still keep up with the young ones, they simply want to give a better life for the next generation. Their priorities include spending time with loved ones and preserving wealth so they can pass it on without any burden.

I grew up in a family of 5 where I am the youngest among my sisters. It is like any typical families where we, my sisters and I, were given chores, disciplined, and taught to be independent by our parents. I remember that we even have scheduling or we take turns on who will cook rice, do the dishes, the washing and other household chores. We even fought about the schedules if not properly followed.

A famous quote from Benjamin Franklin, the father of time management. This quote caught me because nowadays I’ve learned how important and omnipresent planning is. Whether it can be a list of activities to be done during your weekends, in its sense I am already planning.
