Yesterday, we wrote about a financial education DVD movie by the Colayco foundation entitled: “Pisobilities: Bak Por Gud!” I got a copy of the DVD at Astrovision in Greenhills.

In fact, Mike Bolos’ financial freedom is evident by this statement: “(Mike Bolos’) life is now focused on uplifting the lives of overseas Filipino workers and their families through business projects.”
