July-Aug 2009 cover artHow to be a money-smart couple

Assigning money responsibilities, discussing money issues, planning for your retirement early, falling and getting back on your feet, working together as a team, and resolving differences quickly – these are the money lessons that six, model couples shared in this July-August 2009 issue of MoneySense.

Couples Eduardo and Filamie Aguillon, Alex and Elaine Araneta, Toots and Myrna Cortez, Sonny and Lyne Dilag, Michael and Monette Hamlin, and Lito and Ces Melendres share their ups and downs and how they become happy and contented as married couples.

TV personalities Julius and Christine Bersola-Babao also share how two heads are better than one, and how they are using well the opportunities and blessings they are receiving, and how they work together when it comes to business and their investments, particularly into arts.

This July-August issue of the Philippines’ only personal finance magazine also carries the “money stories” of matinee idol Carlos Agassi, Active Fun owner Tony Butler, and Casa San Pablo owner Boots Alcantara. Leadership guru, John Maxwell, meanwhile, shares how to lead in these challenging times.

Articles on global investing for beginners, toy collection as investments, bonds vs. bond funds, buyer’s guide to art, eating out on a budget, and things to do if you encounter bad customer service.
