Been there, Learned that : From Entrep Summit to Blogger Fiesta

How's that for a newbie like me. Totally awesome!

Click! Technopreneur’s Secret Revealed!

August 28, Saturday – attended the 3rd Entrep Summit (Click! Technopreneur’s Secret Revealed) hosted by JCI Manila, at the SM Mall of Asia, Center Stage Cinema. Registration starts at 8:00 AM – but the program started a little later. Whew! (yes we were late - just a bit!)

Speakers were Lex Ledesma (Proprietor, Whistlestop Restaurant), Jay Fajardo (Founder & Former CEO, Airborne Access), Cesar Flores (President, Smartmatic Asia), Abe Olandres (Professional Blogger & Owner, YugaTech.com), Dustin Andaya (Chairman & Marketing Director, Island Rose), Ibba Bernardo (Founder & President, Mothercode), Martin Lichauco (Managing Partner, Global Gateway Venture Capital (G2VC)), Paco Sandejas (Managing Director, Narra Venture Capital) - and more.

I was there with my ate Jophen, Kuya Chi, Ria (who gave us the free invites btw! ♥), Ely, Weng and (new friend) Ryan.

Being able to attend this event, I learned: that successful businesses always start with an innovative idea and grows when you have the passion and perseverance to make it work. Although choosing your team is highly critical and motivation is a must, success also comes from the love of the craft (or learning to love the craft), then harnessing it along the way.

It's true that starting a business is not always easy, but there are people and organizations willing to help - especially with funding!

Most importantly, remember that once "up there", we must not forget to give back to the world. ♥

Oh. and yes of course, that it's pretty cool to be a geek!


Happy 11th Birthday Blogger.com!

August 31, TuesdayBlogger Fiesta!! Bloggers meet-up in celebration of Blogger.com’s 11th birthday. The event was open to all bloggers (including newbie’s), held at the 5th floor, Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig.

The event was sponsored by Fully Booked, Krispy Kreme, Greenwich,  Jollibee, cosmomanila.blogspot.com and Geiser Maclang Communications Inc.

Being a newbie blogger, I was hesitant to join – but I’m glad I did (thanks Ely and Ria for making kulit!), as there were also three speakers who shared tips on how to become a better blogger, increase subscribers and even earn money by harnessing the craft.

Did I mention that to top it all off - I won (thru raffle) on both events! A ticket for two to the Olivia Live concert at East Wood (Entrep Summit) and an Oreo gift pack from Geiser Maclang Communications Inc. (Blogger Fiesta)!

My experience on both event was just awesome. Not only did I learn new things, meet new friends and be inspired by them, I also get to win freebies and stuff!:P

So there, cheers to more events and articles to blog!
