Based on the research he conducted in 2020, which took data from 50% big cities and 50% small cities, he found five main problems in Indonesian people’s finances: debt, saving, investment, money management, and planning. He said that we could start anywhere as long as we are serious, our efforts are maximized, and we know where our potential is. And how do I start this, especially in terms of finances, including the first stage of checking our financial condition, such as studying our balance sheet and our income is still in balance or not and it must be reviewed regularly because if we don’t do a review, we don’t know our financial condition is healthy or sick. After the first stage, we will know our financial situation. If we are sick, we have to fix the problem. Secondly, we must understand the purpose of our lives. The third is a positive social environment because this has a significant influence on our lives and the last is charity. After the delivery of the material from the speakers, a question and answer session was held. The participants seemed very enthusiastic to ask several questions about investment, emergency money, and long-term finance. (By Fani-HRE)

Even though we have planned, we must still prepare alternative space when things get out of hand, so that we are ready to anticipate them (Dwita D, 2021)
