#TiburcioTipidTips on UNTV

So far, it’s always a “Yes” for me when it comes to invitations for TV interviews.

For live TV, I’ve been invited to CNN Philippines, DZMM Teleradyo, and TV Patrol to share about personal finance and money management tips.

Spreading financial literacy gives me joy and fulfillment because it’s one of the struggles of our beloved country.

(By the way, comment below or contact me if you want to join me in my advocacy of financial wellness for Pinoys!)

When UNTV contacted me to do a live interview to share #TiburcioTipidTips for rising inflation, I cleared my schedule and agreed to do it.

To better serve the audience, I asked for the guide questions for the segment. I’ll share it with you here because our segment was too short and I wanted to share more, haha!

If you want to watch my segment, you can watch it beginning at the 10-minute mark:
