Reflections

Holy week seems to have started early. As I attended Palm Sunday mass, I noticed that what normally is a full attendance in our village, this Sunday’s mass was about 70 percent full. The priest and lay ministers had their dinner early having to eat the remaining host not given out.

We’re headed to the beach but my parents decided to spend quiet time at their place in Tagaytay and at home, away from all the fun and distractions that happen when you are on the beach. On our end, my wife is quite strict about Good Friday: we’ll all have to fast. As the priest noted, Catholics have to fast only twice a year, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, while the Muslims fast for 45 days. So it’s not asking much of Catholics to fast on these two days, and if we don’t comply, it’s a mortal sin, with the exceptions of course of those who are sick and elderly. (more…)

Wonder Women

This June, it will be seven years since the Go Negosyo advocacy started. For four years now, we have been holding the Women Entrepreneurship Summit, and without fail, it always has the highest attendance among our summits, caravans and various events. I love working with women since they are so committed. There are so many of them, and you must have seen some of the most successful women in our ads and press releases over the past weeks.

It was my first time to meet Sara Soliven de Guzman, who represented Philippine Star as a major sponsor for the Women STARpreneurs. Sara is the daughter of Max Soliven, and a columnist of Star and an entrepreneur herself. Rosalind Wee, a Go Negosyo trustee and very successful entrepreneur, who will also be featured in our TV show this Saturday, helped in the selection of Women STARpreneurs and stayed practically the whole day helping out. She and Echostore founder Chit Juan were the judges for this year’s STARpreneurs. (more…)
