I always love to see a very successful entrepreneurial couple. They’re the best role models I have for my wife and I. Establishments run by a couple are referred to as “mom and pop” stores. I’ve seen several stores run by a couple but they usually are eateries, diners,...

Chocolate Lovers QC Love

For me its Fully Booked, ANY FREAKIN’ BRANCH. My siblings and I are big book lovers. Come to think of it, if it were common then, my mother didn’t need a baby sitter.

My wife and I were introduced to Chocolate Lovers...

Along my journey to building this empire I truly wish to possess and pass on (to my kids), I know that I would meet people that will help propel me to that position. I’ve met some of them over the past few years but never have I met that one person that I would want to be in the future. I want to be like Kiyosaki, Trump, Gates, Jobs, Gokongwei and many others. These guys...

I have never been a fan of self doubt. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t always confident but I was raised not to say CAN’T before trying something challenging. Suffice to say I was brought up to challenge myself. My parents relentlessly pushed me to do good in school and pointed...
