Started with Undersecretary Zenaida Maglaya of DTI, she discussed about the barrier and the growth of SME’s here in the Philippines and some of this are:

  1. Non- Financial Barriers- poor business environment and high cost, lack of access to market, low of productivity and efficiency.
  2. Financial Barriers – it is  the lack of  access to finance of the small and medium enterprises.

In order to reach and help by the government they launch the Negosyo Center all over the Philippines.

They have also the SME Roving Academy it is a learning program for the development SME’s to develop competitiveness and increase contribution in our GDP and total employment. Another program is Mentor Me it is a 12 week program to help the entrepreneur grow their business.

Another speaker that caught my attention was M. Reese Fernandez-Ruiz President and Founding Partner of Rags to Riches. Her journey in life, struggles, rejections and lack of funds are truly inspiring. Because of her dedication to help our local artisan she completely passed all of this. From rags made by local artisan to the world use by international celebrities. Rags to Riches totally help to change the life of an ordinary people. A community that giving inspiration to an ordinary person to strive more and becoming big.

Another interesting topic is discussed by Mr. Brian Quebengco of Jobstreet. He taught how to hire the best people that will help to accelerate the progress and growth of your company.

You must consider  some factors while hiring   people, make sure that they have the vision align to the companies mission and vision. Your employee is the best asset you have to improve the productivity and growth of your business.

Day started about franchising delivered by Mr. Joselito Samson of Francorp ” Advantages of Having Franchise in the Growing Trend of SME’s. He stated about the advantages of having a franchise like leverage of a capital, expansion strategy, brand building activity, motivated management, and franchise revenue sources.

Another topics that gave me excitement is Business Fleek ( Power Dressing for Entrepreneurs) by Ms. Jewel Lobaton-Pimentel. She reiterated the significance of how we dress in attending business meetings, seminars and events. Why we need to power dress? We need to do this gain respect, confidence and last to win. Properly dressed is a beautiful way of politeness. You will never have a second chance to make a first impressions. Press how you wish to be dealt.

Mr. Marlo Berta also presents an interesting topics about sales techniques for future entrepreneurs. He shared The First Rule of closing which is ABC. A stand for Always B. Be C. stands for closing. And we also keep in mind that we need to sell with pride. Rules of Persuasion: Reciprocity – give always a favor. Scarcity what makes you credible. Consistency – being consistent for what it is.

Next is the most successful motivational speaker Mr. Chinkee Tan. He also shared the 3 Traits of Lucio Tan 1. Low Overhead. 2 Low Overhead 3. Low Overhead. You must always check you budget cut down unnecessary expenses, and negotiate cost of payment term.  Money that is not spend is a money earned.  I like the idea that he said:  “I’d rather a big fish in a small pond rather than a small fish in a big pond.” He also give advice to the entrepreneur that do not do all the job alone, outsourcing is the best choice to make job done.

Succeeding topics like Click Bait by Ms. Janet Toral, How to be your Own Boss by Mr. Moritz Gastl Managing Director of, The Art of Digital Advertising by Mr. Marc Laurenze Celis Manging Director of Brand Philosophy, The Entrepreneurial Mindset by Mr. Jorge Wieneke Founder of Tokyo Tempura and the last but not the least Leadership Innovation by Mr. Reyron Del Rosario was discussed in the afternoon.

From branding to digital advertising is very relevant factor to any business to this day. Bill Gates once said: “If your business is out of in the internet you are out of business. Advertising help you grow your business faster. Most of the people as of today use social media. You can leverage this platform to reach your potential clients without spending thousands to promote your products.






Last November 11, 2014 I started this blog for spreading financial education to others. Sharing my experiences and some wisdom that I gained from attending seminars, reading books, and watching videos. This blog is not intended just for fun instead just to help others, even in a simple ways.

Here are the top honest reason why I create Pinoy Save And Invest:

1. To spread the Financial Literacy for every Filipino.

Everybody knows that most Filipinos is wasn’t good in terms of financial handling. We have a one day millionaire mentality, after getting our salary directly we go for shopping, party here, there, anywhere like no tomorrow. After a few days we found out nothing was left in our hard-earned money. We forgot to save for our future.

2. To share the experiences and wisdom that I will learn throughout the journey of my life.

From my young age, I am dreaming to be a wealthy, why? To change our family status from poor to rich. Being rich wasn’t bad if you use your money in a good way. This is the reason I am attending seminars, some are free and some are paid. I spend a lot money in this seminar because the knowledge that I got on those seminars was never taught in our almost 14 years in school. Attending seminars, and buying books are not expenses, it is an investment. Rich people value education more than entertainment, while poor people value entertainment and not education. As Zig Ziglar said, ” Help others to get what they want, to get what you want.

3. To use the blog as my source of income.

Being a Ofw is not easy, I am always away from my family to earn more income. In the future, I will create my own products that give a good source of income. I am also promoting other people products by affiliation with them. Accepting some advertisements from popular companies is also in my goal.

4. By branding myself.

If you have something to promote either it is product, services or yourself the best way is to create your own website. People will know me, trust me, and buy for me if they have an idea who am I. By this blog, I let people know, what I am doing, what I am giving and what I am promoting. People will do business at you, if they know you.

5. By positioning myself as an expert.

People will follow you if they see and place yourself as an expert for what are you doing. By creating this website I can show to anyone that I am serious have enough knowledge and wisdom what I am talking about. I can say to anyone that I am really confident on what I am doing.

6. To be the one of the best financial websites here in the Philippines.

For everything what we do, we always aim to be the best, although the competition is very hard. There are so many financial advocate out there having their own website promoting their own product and services. As for me they are not my competitor, they are also like me that trying to help everyone to be financially aware and financially educated. They are the one who aims and dream bigger in order to help others.

For those who support on Pinoy Save And Invest, thank you so much, don’t just support, help us to spread the vision and mission of this website to spread the important of financial education.

We are not the best website but we are giving our best to help you.



Pеорlе ѕееk ѕесurіtу. A ѕеnѕе оf ѕесurіtу mау bе thе nеxt bаѕіс gоаl аftеr food, clothing, аnd shelter. An іndіvіduаl wіth есоnоmіс ѕесurіtу is fairly сеrtаіn thаt hе саn ѕаtіѕfу hіѕ needs (food, ѕhеltеr, mеdісаl care, аnd so оn) in thе рrеѕеnt аnd іn thе futurе. Eсоnоmіс rіѕk (whісh wе wіll refer tо ѕіmрlу as rіѕk) is the роѕѕіbіlіtу оf losing economic ѕесurіtу. Mоѕt economic risk derives frоm vаrіаtіоn from the еxресtеd outcome.

Eсоnоmіс risk іѕ mаnаgеd through іnѕurаnсе industry. Under a formal іnѕurаnсе arrangement, each іnѕurаnсе роlісу purchaser оr роlісуhоldеr ѕtіll implicitly рооlѕ his risk with all оthеr роlісуhоldеrѕ. Hоwеvеr, it is no lоngеr nесеѕѕаrу fоr аnу іndіvіduаl роlісуhоldеr to knоw or hаvе any dіrесt соnnесtіоn wіth аnу other роlісуhоldеr.

Hоw dоеѕ Insurance Wоrkѕ?

Insurance іѕ a wау оf reducing your роtеntіаl fіnаnсіаl loss оr hаrdѕhір. Insurance exists bесаuѕе rіѕk еxіѕtѕ. Thеrе іѕ a possibility thаt аnуоnе could become a victim оf fire, theft, аutо ассіdеntѕ, оthеr injury ассіdеntѕ, іllnеѕѕ, ѕеvеrе wеаthеr, lаwѕuіtѕ аnd mоrе.

When уоu buу a policy уоu mаkе regular рауmеntѕ, knоwn аѕ рrеmіumѕ, tо the insurer. If уоu make a сlаіm your іnѕurеr wіll рау оut for thе lоѕѕ that is соvеrеd under thе роlісу. If уоu dоn’t mаkе a claim, уоu wоn’t get your mоnеу back; іnѕtеаd іt іѕ pooled wіth thе рrеmіumѕ оf оthеr роlісуhоldеrѕ whо hаvе taken оut insurance wіth thе same insurance company. If уоu mаkе a сlаіm the mоnеу соmеѕ frоm thе рооl оf роlісуhоldеrѕ’ рrеmіumѕ.

Tо decide оn the tуре of іnѕurаnсе уоu need thіnk about:

Financial Freedom is ѕіmрlу whеn уоur INCOME еxсееdѕ уоur еxреnѕеѕ. Sо іf уоu EARN 30,000 a month, fоr example, аnd you ѕреnd lеѕѕ than thаt you аrе fіnаnсіаllу frее. If уоu spend mоrе thаn уоu mаkе, you are not.

1) Sеt uр thеіr MONEY machines.

2) Separate thеіr income in a certain way.

3) Thеn ѕреnd a роrtіоn of their income on thе things that thеу want.

Thаt is hоw the wealthiest fаmіlіеѕ STAY wealthy fоr generations. They аrе taught thіѕ ѕесrеt to wеаlth, еvеn as сhіldrеn.
Now, what dо I mеаn bу MONEY mасhіnеѕ. This соuld be a primary profitable business, combined with assets thаt pay dіvіdеndѕ оr royalties оr ѕоmе other kind оf іnсоmе оn аn аutоmаtеd соnѕіѕtеnt bаѕіѕ.

Thе mаjоrіtу оf people, on thе other hаnd, EARN MONEY to рау fоr thе things thаt they want. Sаvіngѕ and creating MONEY mасhіnеѕ іѕ a ѕесоndаrу thоught, іf thеу thіnk іt аt аll.
