Mentor Me on Wheels arrived at its sixth stop at Ayala Malls Legazpi – Activity Center, Albay last August 11, 2018.
The mentoring session was participated by The French Baker Founder and CEO Johnlu Koa, Albay Congressman Joey Salceda, PBN Broadcasting Network Inc. President Brenda Locsin, Albay Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Rose Quinto-Rey, 1st Colonial Grill Owner Bong Aspe, and more than 50 entrep-mentors.
More than 300 mentees joined and were fueled with knowledge on mind-setting and marketing on the free one-on-one mentorship.
“Mentor Me On Wheels is a commitment, it’s an effort but at the same time for business people it is an opportunity also to open up to many possibilities especially to retails,” shared Johnlu Koa. He also added that one should identify the opportunity by finding the need in the market and having the ability to create products and services to satisfy the customers’ needs. Also, he shared that one must not be afraid to take risks — plunging to it and then finding the best way to achieve his purpose.
Marife Severo, an aspiring business woman who was mentored by Koa, said that “Bilang nagsisimula pa lang sa negosyo, ang laking tulong ng natutunan ko sa Mentor Me dahil pinupush po talaga kami kung paano kami makaangat hindi lang sa negosyo kundi sa buhay din.”
Mentor Me Online simultaneously ran along with MMOW Legazpi. The program aims to connect mentees with online mentors through the recently launched Mentor Me Mobile Application.
Through MMOW and Mentor Me Online, Go Negosyo and its partner, the Department of Trade and Industry introduce mentors to micro and small entrepreneurs, offering technical and practical know-how on entrepreneurship through events in more convenient and accessible locations. These programs are in line with the current administration’s vision to capacitate micro and small businesses in boosting the Philippine economy.
