A different kind of altruism

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

We are about to end the year 2010. I can’t that believe I have been writing a column in the PhilStar for five years now, which is equivalent to more or less 200 columns. I do get compliments from readers who follow what I write. Sometimes, I find myself wondering how I end up with the topics I discuss.

The nature of my role in the Go Negosyo advocacy brings me to encounter success stories that give me the fuel to continue in everything that I do. For every column that I write, I always hope that it inspires someone out there to become an entrepreneur or a Mr. Mang Inasal someday.

Despite my role in the PGMA administration in helping promote entrepreneurship, I am glad that as of today, the Department of Trade and Industry has adopted and continued the Go Negosyo theme. Go Negosyo is a non-government organization. It is a private sector advocacy, which was embraced by the previous administration and has been continuously supported by the present administration. It takes many years to build a brand. If we are to inculcate entrepreneurship in the minds of our youth, the joint efforts of the private sectors and the government for awareness programs must continue.

Be the next Bossing

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Being an entrepreneur is being the “Bossing” in your place of work or business. This is one of the best parts about living the life of a negosyante. But, just like what the movie says, with great power comes great responsibility. The Bossing is accountable for everything and everyone in his negosyo. It is a privilege and a blessing that should be balanced with responsibility and hard work.

Victory

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

In terms of size, the Pacman vs. Margarito fight seemed like a David and Goliath fight. The odds for Pacman were like 80-20. This means that for every 10 pesos you bet on Manny, you get to win two pesos. Experts did project that the fight will go Manny’s way, but I am sure many have doubts somehow due to the disparity in size. But, regardless of the outcome, the fight showed the heart of a true fighter.

Pacman has been an endorser of one of our products, Vitwater, for about two years now. He is definitely the first Filipino athlete who has crossed the one-billion-peso mark. He can even easily double this, with the fight he had just won and more to come. With his humble beginnings in General Santos, which every Filipino knows by heart, Pacquiao truly has a rags to riches story. He is an inspiration to the many Filipinos who are struggling against poverty. His story gives hope to many Filipinos who are barely coping just to survive and win over poverty. Pacman’s journey gives us all HOPE, and make us look forward to a brighter future for us and for our country.
