Putting Up a Business Without Funds But With Skills and Dedication

It is so difficult to put up a business without enough fund but I know the most difficult in having a business is with right amount of capital (or even too much) but without your heart on it. Since I cannot stand up on my own yet I partnered with one of the well-known local companies in IT industry that operates nationwide in our country. I am glad that the course I took up when I was in college is related on what I am doing right now. I am the master of my time unlike those 5x8  employees. Being a business developer and technical consultants would not be enough for me to fulfill my dreams that is why I also do marketing, and act as a salesman as well.

My family has no interest in business maybe because the risk is very high. Failure is always part of life and we cannot avoid it. As the time goes by we are becoming more cautious. I had failed many times because the previous endeavors that I gone through were not really in the list of my interests. I never calculated the risk before, now I know my path although there are many hindrances and struggles along the way I am now seeing the right direction.

I thank God for giving me the strength and courage to face the challenges in life.

My Business Trips

I had been to many places in the past days. During my absence in Manila I was so busy in out-of-town events and technical trainings to our business partners. There are lots of things or I would say great spots within our country that yet to be discovered instead of thinking of going to other countries. I am glad that I am a natural-born Filipino citizen that can enjoy travels within the Philippines  without worrying too much such as travel documents or passports (of course I don't need that).

I enjoyed local foods in Cebu, Davao, and my next destination will be in Cagayan de Oro City in Mindanao next week. In the places that I had been to I could say that the people there were very accommodating and I love the convenience of transportation at very low cost. We are targeting to have business event in Palawan Island to enjoy of course their local delicacies and hot spots there. I guess next time the venue for the business event should be in beach resorts and not in hotels that we used to have it in function rooms.

Manny Pacquiao Won The Fight Against Clottey!

Before I proceed with another topic I want to tell my readers here that my favorite boxer has won and has defended his championship belt against Clottey. I was so happy that Manny was declared winner but personally I did not enjoy the fight--NO MATCH! I had seen the nervousness of Clottey before the fight. He was not too responsive on the thrown punches of Manny. I was expecting a knockout but Clottey had ensured his safety by blocking with the help of his wrists to protect his head from the bullet punches of Manny.

I did not see fatigue from Manny. Even on the last round he was still punching like a speed of light. I guess that's why Floyd Mayweather, Jr. resist to fight the real pound-for-pound boxer of all times.

Manny has already proven that he is really the pound-for-pound king. The whole world was really amazed on the strength and endurance he had shown in the last fight. Would it be the last bout of Manny in boxing ring? He is now ready to retire if Mayweather, Jr. will not fight him.

Too Excited on Pacquiao-Clottey Fight

In few hours the clock will stop for every Filipino anywhere in the world. Many people will certainly go again to movie houses, coliseums, or in other places (sometimes free of charge) just to see Manny Pacquiao via live-feed (PPV) for the much-awaited fight. Normally the tickets are being sold for PHP500 (USD 10) per pax. I am planning to watch it in Araneta Coliseum for only just about PHP 150 (USD 3) just like in previous fight of Manny Pacquiao against the Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto.

If I would be going to watch it in local television it would take long period of time before I would know who won the fight due to many commercials and advertisements.

Good luck to both fighters and of course I want Manny to win on this boxing fight. This would be my first time to see Manny exchanging punches with Ghanaian contender.

In separate interviews both fighters respect each other. There has no trash-talk heard from both camps.

Poker Addiction

These past days I had been busy with poker. No, it's not what you think. I lost only chips and not really big bucks. Actually what I have lost is time. But anyway, I enjoyed playing it, thanks to poker in Facebook. I started with 2,000 chips and reached up to 1,030,000 then it turned me down to I am still recovering from my BIG loss.

I have realized that life is just like poker or any games we knew. Sometimes you reach the top and sometimes you go down. It is how you manage your life. I do not consider myself a loser, I always find the reason why every time I lose in a game of life.

I am glad that in online poker I only lose chips unlike in the real game I could lose time, money, and perhaps future. I do not encourage the real game in life if a person is not ready to lose everything. Thanks to the lesson I have learned from playing it without practically paying money to understand the game of poker!

Tricky Phrase! In One Word

I am featuring the blog of Kaja. He is one of my mates in one of the social networking sites that had been designed for bloggers. Well, what can I say about this cowboy is nothing much aside from being a winner in the contest in a thread that I created. There were many answers but they did not get it right until this witty guy had gotten it correctly.
Perhaps you may wonder what game was that so to tell you further let me start with a game called “Tricky Phrase, In One Word”. There were many dumb asses around and I almost fell off the chair when I began to read their posts. Okay, it would be unfair if I will not tell you what phrase all about.
Here it is:
“If you are in IT you are E” --- simplify in one word.
That was a very simple phrase and I asked them to simplify in one word just like breaking the codes. All of a sudden there were answers like “E”, “Engineer”, "TIE" and some funny answers. Perhaps they were dying to get the reward that I had promised. Well, the reward was not about money neither for me to become their slave for a year nor anything about providing household services but to promote their blog. Blog promotion for the lucky bastard winner was really a difficult task. I made my words to feature their blog in the social net communities that I have joined. Actually by generating this post to my own blog as promised made me sick and tired. In addition to my solemn commitment I told them that whoever got it first I will praise him!
Getting back to the answers made by many of my followers in that thread entitled “Tricky Phrase, It's Just A Game", there was actually one guy who firstly got the correct answer. His name is DeadRooster. The only problem with this rooster was that I had a follow up instruction on the game before he posted his answer.
If DeadRooster had been wise enough his answer should be placed on top of the thread but instead he just posted his answer at the bottom. By checking the time of his post he really got it first!

The right answer by the way is FURNITURE please see below answer made by Cowboy Kaja:

Reunion with My High School Friends

I have met my high school friends recently after not seeing them for 14 years. Actually I have only met four of my classmates and two of them have already children. Most of them have their own families and I feel that I need to have my own as well. It was nice to have bottles of beer with them while sharing stories of past and present. Most of the impressions were about our new looks and body built. They have noticed that I gained weight and that's one of the reasons that I needed to take diet. I had tried to have a 30-day diet but unfortunately I have lost days instead of weight I cannot resist to eat plenty of foods especially this Christmas and the coming new year.

How I wish we could have high school reunion that everyone could attend but I know it is not possible since some of them have already their own lives abroad and the chance for having such party for the entire batch is very low.

I would consider one of the happiest moments in my life was during high school although I had many regrets--sorry but for those regrets it's a bit personal and I cannot disclose here. I had lost many opportunities when I was still a teenager but I am still delighted every time I reminisce the past years.

It is so nice to know that nowadays we have social media sites that you can keep in touch again with your long lost former classmates and friends but what really excites me most if I could meet them personally. Well, thanks to Facebook, Friendster, etc that at least I could get a chance to see them by looking at their published photos and what they are heading to. The communication is still there because of the technology that we know today.

Most of my high school classmates do not know that I am fond of blogging. If ever they get a chance to look at this article I would like to tell them that there will come a time that we could have regular gathering even just yearly. Those who are unable to go I think there will be no hindrance even just through video conferencing! That's the beauty of internet!

Now that it's Christmas time I hope they are in good shape and happy with their respective family.
