For my first International TV Airing, I was very fortunate to have worked with Xoom (Paypal’s remittance provider) for their Filipinx Program. They have partnered with ABS-CBN’s Adobo Nation show to bring in four Filipinx financial experts for a special speaker series.

I could not have done this without the help and guidance of our Almighty God and of course, from my regular readers like you! Thank you again for being a TTP reader and for sticking around through every blog post I publish!

My segment was aired on April 18, 2021. Of course, this is one for the books!

NOW FOR OUR KABABAYANS ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO SEND MONEY TO LOVED ONES, ASK YOURSELF, HOW MUCH CAN YOU AFFORD TO SEND?

  • USING A MONEY TRANSFER SERVICE, LIKE XOOM, HELPS SO MUCH WITH BUDGETING BECAUSE IT ALLOWS YOU TO TRACK ALL OF THE AMOUNTS YOU SEND AND STORE ALL YOUR LOVED ONES’ INFORMATION IN ONE PLACE—WHETHER IT’S THEIR DEBIT CARD FOR A DIRECT BANK DEPOSIT, OR EVEN JUST THEIR NAME FOR CASH PICKUP.

  • I THINK A LOT OF FAMILIES DON’T EVEN REALIZE HOW EASY THE CASH PICKUP OPTION IS IN THE PHILIPPINES!
  • YOU LITERALLY ONLY NEED TO PROVIDE AN ID AND THE XOOM TRANSACTION NUMBER TO RETRIEVE THE FUNDS AT ONE OF THE PICK-UP LOCATIONS ACROSS THE PHILIPPINES.
  • IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT A BIG PART OF BUDGETING IS BUDGETING YOUR TIME, ALONG WITH YOUR MONEY

Here’s a link to the video. My part starts at 6:04…
