It's Time To Change The Way You Invest!


October 8, 2023

There was a moment in my life where I found myself at a crossroad, unsure of whether to stay on my current path or take a bold leap into the unknown.

This is the story of my journey through such a pivotal season of change, where I had to decide whether to pump the brakes, pivot or embark on a total reroute.

I asked God questions.

Was I supposed to pump the brakes?
Why would you call me out of this?
I worked so hard to be in this position.
Why would you ask me to walk away at the top of my game?

I started to have this restlessness within my spirit that I was supposed to do this.

I was so scared.

People think I was crazy.
I pushed those feelings to the side.
And I dug it even harder.

I think God allowed a very trying season to happen to get my attention.
People say, "You're brave for walking away at the height of your career".

I wasn't brave.

I felt like Job. Within a short period of time I had some major things happen to me that got my attention.

I'm at this point like, "Life's fine. I'm sure God wants me to keep going at this pace or I was like there's a big white flag. God, you got my attention".

I kind of went kicking and screaming.
It's crazy!
Who does this?
Realizing my values were clashing with the choices that I made, I pumped the brakes in 2022.

Weeks later, I left my corporate job.

It was a moment filled with mixed emotions—anger, denial, and ultimately, a sense of freedom.
I took pride in the fact that I can walk away from what I do and still know who I am. But, when I had to walk away from what I did and I didn't have those fancy titles attached to my name, I didn't know who I was anymore.

It was a season of self-discovery and reckoning.
Everything I thought that I was and the way I thought I had built my career. There was a lot of self-reflection.
God just slowly started to heal my heart and showed me that my identity and worth were never supposed to come from a job and my value wasn't my vocation.

My worth wasn't work.
My calling wasn't just my career.

God gave me a lot of freedom and permission to try new things in new seasons.

I thought I had to work in the corporate forever.
He showed me, that I'm going to call you in many different things in many different seasons but your ultimate purpose is to love God and love people. And wherever your place vocationally, that's the conduit.
That's the way in which you will love God and love people.
It has honesty given me permission to try new things.

Which is why I'm dabbling my toes into this area which was in my heart for 7 years and that is to let Filipinos know how they can properly invest their money and be good stewards of the resources given to them.

I'm not a stock analyst, I do not know anything finance-related. But I know God gave me this passion that I had for a long time. So I'm just going for it and I continue to press in.

I'm realizing that my gifts and talents won't change. God gave me the ability to ask questions. I like to challenge people. I like to champion people. I like designing and creating and I just had to redirect that to this new space.

There are things that I don't know.
It's scary and it's very unknown.
But this is a space I DO know.

I do know how to challenge people and champion them.
I do know how to ask questions.
I do know how to design and create.
And I do know that I can trust God, in His faithfulness, I trust that all will bear its fruit.

This is #BeyondTrades. There is more to life than trading and investing. This is my way to never forget that.
