Building her brand

She fondly shares, “Inasmuch as I enjoy being around the youth, I also love talking to those who are older than me. I actually call them “Aunt” or “Tito” whenever I give business advice because I want them to feel very comfortable; as if I am a daughter to them whom they can turn to anytime.”

More projects are in store for this girl boss, including shows with V81 Radio Worldwide, webinars with TSA Global Crowdfest, and a stint with Carl Balita Review Center, as one of the rosters of resource speakers for the CPALE, as a Certified Management Accountant.”

She efficiently divides her days into hours and makes sure that she has the time for her projects, classes, hosting and writing stints, and even studying.

“I am not perfect as well,” she adds. “I have been through a lot of ups and downs this 2020. Still, I keep going because I know that I have employees, partners, students, and others whom I am fortunately able to guide and inspire. I know that I am being used as God’s instrument to inspire and share my knowledge, experiences, and even network of wonderful people, who also have the same values and purpose to serve.”
