Yep, it's a series, but you can opt to join just one or a few if that's all your helper needs to learn. This workshop is perfect for both Yaya and Amo especially when the latter relies on the other to do just about everything in the house, with work elsewhere constantly knocking.

Next up, it's about time that we get those financial knots straight and break free from debts, credits and the habit of leisurely spending. This workshop will help you enjoy money more without causing the rest of the budget to crumble and suffer.

One of the challenges of having a family is making both ends meet and saving for the future. Newly married couples and even couples who have been married for a longer time are always having the same struggle of managing family income on a regular basis, which most of the time, is a cause of marital problems between husband and wife. A solution for a harmonious marital relationship is having the right mindset and know-how on handling money wisely. Manila Workshops, in partnership with Best for Families and Insular Life, present "Managing Family Income and Budget", a finance workshop for couples who would like to know more about balancing family income and planning for the future.
