How My Country, Indonesia Can Prosper & Improve Much Further

When I was young, I spent most of my childhood time in countries such as Singapore and the United States. After finishing my education studying abroad, I returned to my home country, Indonesia. I have been living in Indonesia after finishing my education. I'm not a Politician or someone with power; I'm just a simple businessman working as a freelance in my father's company. Despite my country not being perfect, I still love my country. I want my country to prosper and become a nation respected by others worldwide. I believe there is much room for improvement in my country. I know this topic has nothing to do with investing or personal finance; however, I firmly believe a tremendously prosperous nation correlates with citizens' wealth and better living standards. As a stock investor in Indonesia, I believe if my country can improve much further, it will automatically make me and my family wealthier as well.
Indonesia is a country with enormous economic potential, which has not gone unnoticed by the international community. Indonesia's largest economy in Southeast Asia possesses various qualities that position the country well for advanced economic development. Furthermore, the central government has recently expressed significant support for reducing Indonesia's traditional reliance on (raw) commodity exports and increasing the importance of the manufacturing industry in the economy. Infrastructure development is also a top priority for the administration, and it should have a positive impact on the economy. I believe more foreign investment from the entire world, improving the nation's infrastructure, and ending corruption are vital requirements to grow Indonesia's economy. This article will share my opinion and views on how my country, Indonesia, can prosper much further. Moreover, I will explain why I have so much respect for my current president, Jokowi Widodo.

My View on Relationship, Family, & Wealth

This article is very random. It's more of my personal life, but it might be an important lesson for others. My first love was with my first girlfriend that occurs in the United States when I was still studying abroad. The relationship happened from 2010 to 2012. However, sadly the relationship failed. And since the breakup, I have been single for almost 10 years till now.
The reason why the relationship fell apart was that I was not strong enough mentally and financially. I was still depending on my parents, and I was confused about my own identity. I was traumatized from my first relationship, which resulted in me being very picky when it comes to choosing the partner in my life. I don't want to make the same mistake again. Going through a breakup is really harsh; it almost made me go insane.
I met a lot of girls after my breakup; however, I never had chemistry with them. I am always looking for the one to be my soul mate. Furthermore, I was very strict with my personal finance, making it harder to make the spark. It is a turn-off when you are frugal towards someone you like. I know readers who had been following my blog understand my ambition to be financially independent. However, readers would probably understand more after finishing reading this article. In this blog post, I'm going to talk about the reason why I'm still single. Moreover, I will talk about my secret crush and why I am so obsessed with becoming financially independent.
