As an avid reader of his blog, I’ve learned a lot from this guy. I wandered during my first few days in blogging how this ordinary guy made such a huge impact in the world of blogging especially on his niche as a programmer.
Personally speaking I’ve never learned programming on my own way but what surprised me with this government employee is his determination to help those fellow bloggers who have no background in computer related courses.

I am grateful that finally the teachings and the experienced he learned during his blogging days will be imparted to all of us, especially for Filipinos who have been looking for a part time job but never find one.

From a measly P7,000 starting capital in 2003, she was able to enhance and develop her agriculture-based endeavor into a multi-million business today.
Not only that Rebecca C. Tubongbanua, a 39-year old entrepreneur of San Isidro, Buenavista, Guimaras, was selected as a Magsasakang Siyentista (Farmer Scientist) in 2007 and became the national secretary general of the Farmer Scientists Association and included in the book written by former Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap as among the 200 agri-entrepreneurs in the country.
A national nominee for Gawad Saka Award and president of the Guimaras Producers and Processors Association, Tubongbanua toiled for several years in experimenting and is finally able to perfect her processed products made of indigenous fruits of Guimaras, especially mango, calamansi, casuy nuts and pineapple.
She put up her firm, McNester, and soon became the byword of processed commodities fit not only for the local table but for national and international markets.
Guimaras mangoes are known as the sweetest mango in the world and command a better price in the markets.
Her processed commodities include mango jam, mango calamansi concentrate, dried mango, mango chutney, calamansi juice, mango calamansi juice, flavored polvoron, mango sauce, mango ketchup-regular, pineapple ketchup-hot and spicy, Indian mango pickles and pineapple marmalade.
Tubongbanua focused on high value commercial crop processing technology and her dried mangos are known for low sugar content and sulfite-free by using science and technology based farm experience.
Her S&T based farm village level processing in mango in San Isidro, Buenavista, is starting to become a tourist attraction in the municipality as many visitors come to see and want to know her secret in processing.
Trainings for her and her 10 employees are provided by the Philippine Center for Agriculture Resources Research and Development (PCARRD) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Agriculture, National Mango Research and Development Center and the Farmer Information and Technology Service (FITS), WESVARRDEC and the provincial agriculture office of Guimaras.

The co-founder of the Rags2Riches social enterprise, which assists women who recycle scrap materials to make rugs for sale in Payatas, was chosen by the Rolex Awards for Enterprise-Young Laureates Programme as one of its five awardees for 2010.
Reese Fernandez was proclaimed winner under the Environment category “in strong recognition of her social involvement that is transforming the lives of many impoverished women in the Philippines.”
The project started in the Payatas dumpsite and is currently helping women convert trash into “eco-ethical, elegant” products and sell these products directly to retailers.
Fernandez and her team of young professionals sought advice from designers, who demonstrated how the rugs could be transformed into fashion handbags, eyeglass cases and wine bottle, holders, all for sale in top-end shops. About 300 women now work for Rags2Riches.
It not only provides decent wages to these women, but also provides them with training in personal finance, health, and nutrition.
The Rolex Awards provides financial support in the amount of US$50,000 over two years to advance each person’s project.
Rolex will also promote the winners through international media coverage.
The Young Laureates will become active members in the Rolex community of innovators, taking advice from former Laureates and Associate Laureates, and, in turn, passing on their knowledge to other young people.
The Rolex Awards for Enterprise-Young Laureates Programme was launched in 2009. It aims to foster innovation in the next generation.
It supports visionary young men and women in implementing their inventive ideas that tackle pressing concerns and issues in five areas: science and health, applied technology, exploration, the environment and cultural preservation.
The four other awardees are from America, Nigeria, Ethiopia and India. They were chosen from among the 189 applicants from 60 countries around the world.
Joey Concepcion III is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RFM Corporation, the Presidential Consultant on Entrepreneurship and one of the founders of the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship.
Joey Concepcion came from a middle-class family who did not have all the luxuries in life. He was taught to achieve things in life with patience. He grew up in Pasay City where there was always flood and fire. However, he has grandparents who are known for being great entrepreneurs: Jose Concepcion Sr., was the founder of Concepcion Industries; and his grandmother (from the mother side), Victoria Lopez- Araneta, is the founder of many businesses (FEATI University, Araneta University, RFM Corporation, etc.). The environment he grew up with and his grandparents were what he considers his inspirations to venture in business and be successful in it.
Joey as an entrepreneur is self-confident. At the age of 28, he is already the Chief-Executive-Officer of RFM Corporation, the second largest food and beverage conglomerate in the Philippines generating P10 billion in net sales for the year 2001. He bought the brands Selecta and Cosmos and challenged its two giant competitors: Coke and Magnolia. In 13 years, he made Cosmos a market leader with Pop Cola.
He considers business not only as a way of making money but as well as a way to show love for the country. He wants to help others, already-entrepreneurs and budding entrepreneurs alike, that, together with other eight colleagues, they founded Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship. They aim to encourage and mentor entrepreneurs. They form a movement to achieve their goal of making Filipinos optimistic rather than pessimistic, named it “Go Negosyo”, a brand they hope would create Philippines as a country of millionaires.
Alfredo Macam Yao, 64, also known as “Mr. Zest-O”, established a record of excellence in diversified fields of business. He began in the printing business before moving on to packaging, food and beverage manufacturing, chemicals, toiletries, real-estate development and banking.
He created and produced the “Zest-O” fruit juice brand and introduced a packaging technology known as doy pack, now widely used in beverages and liquid seasonings. His canned dalandan and calamsi sodas are often served in parties and receptions. The ensuing demand for the fruits has helped revitalize the local dalandan and calamansi citrus-growing country.
Other product lines Yao has developed are Beam toothpaste and Quickchow noodles. He holds the local franchise for the RC Cola softdrink, which will soon be exported to China.
In 1997, he went into banking, opening two Manila-based banks almost simultaneously: Philippine Business Bank Bank, a thrift bank of which he is the chairman and president; and Export & Industry Bank, a commercial bank where he sits as a director. PBB has 18 branches; Exportbank has 31 branches after its recent merger with Urban Bank. In 2003, he established the AMY Foundation to provide scholarships to students from poor families.
Feliciano Juarez (was born on May 19, 1958 at Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat) is the President and founder of Copylandia Office Systems Corporation, the leading provider of advanced copying and printing solutions in the Philippines.
Feliciano is the second of the family with 5 children. He has an elder brother and three younger sisters. His father is an engineer and his mother is a businesswoman (runs a grocery in Davao).
Nonoy, as he is fondly called, was primarily unsure of what course to take in college. He enrolled at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, College of Engineering so as to follow his father’s footsteps. However, he stopped and cross-enrolled at the University of the Philippines, Baguio. There he met his wife, Bernadette. When Bernadette enrolled at the University of the Philippines, College of Law, Diliman, Nonoy followed suit and enrolled there.
It started out with the scarcity of photocopiers at the university which was really a necessity since there were only limited books available at the college library. He passed a proposal to supply the photocopying services of the new library and was approved. From one machine, he has now copy centers to other schools and provinces like Davao, Cebu, and Iloilo. They eventually ventured into printshop business in Makati’s Central Business District. This business led to their eventual distribution of office machine systems. In 1993, he established Copylandia Office Systems Corporation which distributes Risograph copying machines and other products like paper cutters, booklet makers, shredders, baling presses, offset presses, plate makers, and bindery machines.
Now, Coplylandia’s machines can be seen in every print shops. It has 40 printshops nationwide and growi
Orlando Vea is one of the country’s leading technology entrepreneurs by being the co-founder of Smart Communications, and Chief Executive Officer of Mediaquest.
Orlando’s father was a civil servant and his mother is a retired schoolteacher. He was raised in a simple family but with perfect moral strength and values. He was taught to have community awareness and work ethics (which he is apllying now in his telecommunications business).
He was always curious about science and technology as a child that he had been a scholar in Physics. This was not the course he took, though, in college but Economics which he finished at the University of the Philippines as a cum laude.
Together with Dave Fernando, they founded Smart Communications in 1991. They made cellular phones more affordable and more available to the people. They put cell sites in remote areas providing coverage to everybody anywhere in the country. They aim not only to give mobile devices available for all but also the basic telephone service which they think the people really need. To be able to make this happen, they partner with First Pacific Group and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) which were then the biggest telco in the world in terms of market capitalization.
Smart Communications is the Philippines’ leading wireless services provider now with 27 million subscribers on its GSM network as of end-June 2007.
Orlando Vea is also the chief executive officer of Media Quest, a company that delivers news, entertainment, education, and other information through the use of satellite, cable, fiber, wire or wireless networks to a television, mobile phone, PDA, PC, movie screen or any digital broadcast receiver.
“ My greatest high now comes from seeing the cellphone in the hands of little people like market vendors, farmers, fishermen, tricycle drivers, household help and many others…
Josie Natori didn’t set out to revolutionize the lingerie industry. She might easily have ended up with another business: McDonald’s franchises (“They wouldn’t let me open in Manhattan,” Natori recalls) or antique furniture reproduction (“The chairs weighed more than I did”) or even a car wash (“We would park and count the cars that went into them”). In her search, Natori, 60, who was born and raised in the Philippines but moved to New York City in 1964, was merely trying to satisfy an entrepreneurial urge that she traces back to her grandmother, who owned several businesses, including an ice factory.
Finally, in 1977 she settled on apparel when a friend in the Philippines sent her a suitcase of embroidered shirts that echoed the peasant blouses YSL was doing at the time. After cold-calling a buying agency, she was sent to Bloomingdale’s—to the lingerie buyer, as it happened. The buyer suggested Natori make the blouses longer so they could be sold as nightshirts. “Everyone thinks I am obsessed with lingerie,” says Natori, “but it was a complete accident.”
Natori quit her job as a vice president at Merrill Lynch and set to work creating her first collection. Thirty years later, the woman who gave us the seamless bra and modern, chic camisoles that can be worn either to bed or out on the town has four lingerie lines available everywhere, from Saks to Dillard’s. She is also expanding into menswear and home, with a bedding collection and, down the road, rugs, tableware and lighting.
A former concert pianist, Natori still looks forward to reading the sales reports every week. “There’s no better high than seeing something you’ve designed fly out of the stores.”
Heny Sison, the country’s premier cake designer and pastry chef, probably did not forsee her success in the field when she started out in her work. She was once an economic researcher and finance analyst, and only later found herself pulled to the art of baking.
It was in 1985 that she put up the Heny Sison School of Cake Decorating and Baking and started teaching baking and cake decorating to an initial class of five students in an informal condo setting. The number of students grew, and by 1987, she renamed the school to Heny Sison Culinary School and branched out to include cooking in the courses offered, with cuisines such as Italian, French and Thai becoming part of the menu.
And Heny is certainly very well qualified for her role. Her culinary training background includes the Wilton School of Cake Decorating in Illinois; L’Academie de Cuisine in Bethesda, Maryland; Maid of Scandinavia in Minneapolis (under Rland Winbeckler, Marsha Winbeckler and Marie Grainger); the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, in Napa Valley; and Draeger’s Culinary Center in California.
With years of extensive experience and training, Heny Sison remains a big name in the culinary arts. Apart from teaching, she is also a Director of Petal Craft International and of Cake Art International, and a member of the International Cake Exploration Society and the Bread Bakers Guild of America. Moreover, she assists in promoting San Miguel Pure Foods to the people through cooking demonstrations held in public venues.
As for the Heny Sison Culinary School, she has activities lined up to celebrate its 20th anniversary, which will coincide with the opening of its Makati branch. She also wishes to build a one-stop shop for chefs, which will include a café, school and store.
Heny’s success in teaching lies in not only being an expert on the subject, but also inspiring her students. She warns young chefs that cooking and baking are not all glamour, and that passion for the art plays a big role in achieving success. She also cites the importance of sharing knowledge, motivating students, honesty, dedication and a good relationship with the people you work with.
These words of wisdom summarize Heny’s own road to success. It is not difficult to see why this humble and personable woman is not only successful but also well-loved.
A motivational speaker can inspire many to achieve their goals. But what is it in turn that motivates them? Author and motivational speaker Lloyd Luna came from humble beginnings but he has gone a long way from the days when he used to help his father sell bread in his home town of Gumaca, Quezon.
Even early on, Luna learned that it takes hard work to make it in life. Also key in his youth were good nutritional habits, which included drinking milk regularly. He used to get up at 4:30 AM to prepare the items for his father’s rounds. When Luna didn’t have classes, he’d go along with his father selling bread around town.
His early years encouraged him to become an achiever, and he graduated with honors from the Gumaca National High School. He went on to Manila to get a degree in Electronics Communications Engineering from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. There he wrote for Spectrum, which led him to be cited as the Most Outstanding Campus Journalist two years in a row. The student paper became one of the finalists for Best Student Organization at the 2002 Catholic Mass Media Awards. Soon after, Luna started working as a correspondent at the Department of Labor and Employment. He was then hired by Malacañang to be an events organizer for the Office of the President, where he met several successful business people who later became some of his inspirations in writing “Is there a career waiting for me?”
Luna’s experiences led him to write the book that was to become a bestseller. He knew how difficult the road to success was, and he wanted to help others overcome their uncertainties and to let them know what it takes to have a successful career. But even that goal of his was littered with obstacles. Because he lacked the funds, he almost wasn’t able to publish “Is there a career waiting for me?” He was determined to get the the book out however, believing a lot of people would benefit from it. He then became a self-taught web designer, earning a respectable income that enabled him to publish ten copies of his book. These he personally delivered to several National Bookstore branches. Through the book’s website, Luna found his market and the copies sold out quickly, prompting the bookstore to call asking for more copies.
“Is there a career waiting for me?” eventually became a hit, receiving praises from a readership ranging from journalists to businessmen. It changed not only his readers’ careers, but his own as well. He is now the president and CEO of LLOYDLUNA Communications, which aims to promote motivational and inspirational books, seminars and coaching programs in the country. But even as traveling for his work takes its toll on his body, Luna still falls back on the good nutritional habits he developed as a child. A reminder of his beginnings, drinking two glasses of milk remains a valuable part of his daily routine.
