Leaving an Amazing Career for Passion and Finding Success Doing That - Boris Joaquin
Boris and I talk about how he went from successfully launching what practically was a completely untouched category in the form of Downy Fabric Conditioners to falling in love with discipling (conceptually from his religion) and adapting that to be able to build a successful consultancy and training business. We discuss how he started his business as a side-hustle, how being young and having insight should be respected, helping MSME’s with building and growing, his overall thought processes around adapting frameworks and principles to be able to craft structured learning experiences and how other nations are beginning to look at Filipinos as great communicators.
Hope you enjoy the episode!
Ari Lim - Owner, Pawdel - From Php5,000.00 to Exporting to Australia and New Zealand
Extra long episode for extra juicy business insight!
Donn and I uncover how Ari went from losing his car, self teaching digital advertising, creating his own website, having 1 sale a month and onwards to getting organic calls and emails from prospects for him to export his product.
Paulo Cruz - Suds Masters Laundry
This has probably got to be one of the best episodes we've done so far! Paulo talks about how we went door to door looking for customers to servicing major hotels around the metro. He talks agility, opening up new revenue streams and taking risks. If you want to get a sneak peak into a real deal 7 ton laundry business is -- this podcast is for you!!
Luigi De Guzman - The Drop Collective
Hi Diskarte Fam! It's been a while!
In this episode, I introduce Donn Alicante (Nutty Selections, Owner) as my co-host! We deep dive on how Luigi was able to break out of the 9 to 5 last year by clinging on to equipment he invested in 6 years ago but never really maximized. Luigi's entrepreneurial story is certainly amazing and one that we all wish to call our own. Listen in as we find out how he goes from a couple of tshirts to now having offices with orders by the hundreds of thousands!
Also, I'm really sorry for not being consistent with this but with Donn taking over, I'm pretty sure we will keep it consistent this time. At the end of the day, the diskarte never stops!
Aaron Halili - Co-Owner, PetMe BGC
Having known Aaron for a couple of years now, I (and pretty much all his social media network) know for a fact that he absolutely loves his doggos, having landed several gigs including a movie with Maja Salvador and Mon Confiado. And now, that same love has led him and his partner Kevin Bigander to begin building a business in the pet industry. We talk:
- Hunter and his journey from condo pup to acting
- The current state of the pet hotel industry
- How they constructed the idea of building a paw park and hotel
- Their on going process of building the business
- Choosing BGC as the area to build it
- Adapting for the shifting pandemic climate
