REDISCOVER money-smart women


As 2008 comes to a close, you – a mother, daughter, sister, wife – maybe mulling over how you handled the year’s household budget, maintained your own financial independence, worked with your significant other as a team, have had a healthy relationship with money, took more investment risks, educated yourself financially, or sought help from the experts.

If you think you didn’t do well in those areas, let MoneySense help you with its November-December 2008 issue focusing on money-smart women, and learn their practices, and also how to be like former Management Association of the Philippines president Evelyn Singson, Landbank president Gilda Pico, Philippine National Bank president Flor Tarriela, and Figaro Coffee owner Chit Juan.

To help you further financially plan your 2009, read how Dr. Vicki Belo, the “celebrity doctor to the stars,” and her heir apparent, daughter Cristalle Henares, work as a mother-daughter team in the booming beauty business, and how they are complementing each other’s money habits.

Also packed in this issue are stories on eight reasons to get a debit card; how would you know if you need an accident insurance; planning a wedding without breaking the bank; bag as a luxury, and choosing between SUV and a crossover.

Currently available in over 200 outlets nationwide, MoneySense is founded by veteran business and finance journalists with a combined 50 years of publishing experience. To learn more about the MoneySense, visit For subscriptions, contact 339-3361, 728-1073 or email
