Whether you’re a business guru or not, you probably know the importance of finding a good location for your business. An ideal location should be able to satisfy certain criteria such as a steady populace, accessibility, good infrastructure, a well-developed community, availability of basic services and resources, safety, and many others which are all advantageous for business.

Recently, I saw the documentary of a Filipino family living in the U.S. making $1,000,000 per year online.
Yes, that’s not a typo. Isang Milyong Dolyar kada taon.
That’s roughly over P46 Million pesos. It depends on currency exchange.

There’s a myth going around.
Ask anyone the best way to get noticed online, chances are they’ll say: “Just produce more content!”
Or, “Just write more books!”
Or, “Start a podcast! Shoot some videos! Write more blog posts!”
Somehow it’s as if flinging out random content into the world will somehow magically help you grow your audience and find more readers.
If you’ve ever tried that approach, I’m betting you burned out pretty quick. Continue reading The 3 Step Formula to Grow Your Audience
One of the most respected investing icons in this generation is Warren Buffet. You may have heard from experienced traders and investors that Warren isn’t actually investing in stocks. But that he is actually buying companies.
In a way, if you buy shares of a good company, you are indeed buying a portion of it. You become a part owner.

A couple of days ago, I wrote a Facebook status about how many Pinoy parents put a lot of pressure on their kids to pursue awards, honor medals, and a diploma. As of this writing, the post has received over 7,000 Likes and has been shared by more than 3,000 readers. That’s just in less than 2 days. (26,000+ likes and 14,400+ shares on the 3rd day)
It’s a very long article but many say that they have read every word that was written. Probably because it was something that they can relate to.
It’s about a culture of being entitled and not being left behind by peers and the community. A culture that has caused many Filipino families a lot of unpaid debts, selling of most precious treasures and assets, and anxieties both among parents and children.

Two things in this world hardly ever get discussed on the same conversation: artistic passions and personal finances. Why? Both lie on the extreme sides of the mind: the creative and logical. But truth is, they’re not as unrelated as most people think.
Most of the things in life won’t be possible without money. We can’t eat without money – unless we scavenge trash bins of restaurants and make “pagpag”. We can’t spend quality time with our loved ones without money – unless we just stay home, watch TV, or play board games (all of which still need money by the way). And we can’t indulge in our artistic passions without moolah – unless our idea of art is drawing stuff on other people’s walls.
