p/s: During the coming school holiday, I plan to revise all what I get from the 1st to 4th TAIB Financial Talk. I hope TAIB will extend their community services to students at primary and secondary schools, i.e in promoting smart financial planning.

I guess financial planning is about knowledge, skills, commitment, and discipline. The difficult parts are the commitment and discipline.
