I'm a serial entrepreneur. I used to be a banker, striving through all the challenges that the corporate world brings.

In 2012, I kicked off those heels and decided to carry on different roles --- mommy, entrepreneur, blogger, biz coach, writer and yoga instructor, with my flipflops on!

I graduated MA in Communications Major in Integrated Marketing Communications from the University of Asia and the Pacific. I worked as an account executive for a popular ad agency handling skin care products for men and women and other consumer products. After a year, I was given the opportunity to manage a well-known Chinese food franchise store as Managing Director. After two years, I went back to advertising and became an account executive for one of the leading mobile phone brands in the industry.

It was then I wanted to shift gears again and try out working in a corporate environment. I was taken in by one of the leading banks in the country as a Cash Solutions Manager (sales officer handling Corporate Clients). After two years, I was given the chance to head a team of product managers as a Team head for Corporate Product Banking. After a couple of years, I was again moved to the Retail Product Banking group to become a Product Development Manager. I really enjoyed being a banker and built my knowledge and character in this institution.

But in October 2012, I had to let go of my corporate life since I wanted to prioritize my pregnancy and eventually, prioritize raising my daughter. Currently, I am a full time entrepreneur — business and marketing coach, co-founder of a tech start-up and the GM of my own business, Manila Workshops, which provides a venue for people to continuously learn and aspire for their professional or personal goals in life.


Over the years, I have developed skills and gained experiences as an entrepreneur. These led me to taste both successes and failures, and this, I consider to be my strength. I have experienced handling a food franchise business. I have experienced putting up a fashion retail business and being a social entrepreneur. I have experienced earning from social media and blogs. I have experienced earning from online businesses and from an offline events management company.



GTV is one of the platforms that I intend to use to help turn your entrepreneurial dreams into reality. Each video will focus on a topic relevant to people in their own entrepreneurial journey: topics such as branding, building communities, starting a retail business, managing finances, working things out with your spouse, and a whole lot more. Through these videos, I hope that people would learn practical tips and draw enough confidence from the experiences that I and my guests in the future have gone through.



I have designed a program that will help entrepreneurs analyze and set the path for them in decision making and in building their own businesses. The program is designed for individuals who are interested in putting up their own businesses, but do not know where to start. To fully achieve the benefits of the program, an individual will go through 3 sessions of business and marketing classes with me. The program includes worksheets and assignments, feedback and discussion of ideas, and continuous email communication for 2 months after the sessions end. Mentoring sessions are at $47 (Php 2,000) per session. Output that we need to strive to achieve will be your own business plan.



I have been blogging since 2005 and I don’t know if we’ve already met online through these blogs listed below. If we have, I would like to thank you for dropping by and for being part of my life in one way or another. I invite those of you who have not been to my sites to visit and take a peek. I appreciate comments and I would love to hear your thoughts, ideas and your own personal stories.

Please feel free to contact me for a quotation.



I also get invited to speak as a guest at seminars and conferences. Catch me in one of up and coming events!
