I have always dreamed of being a successful entrepreneur. In fact, I’ve ventured into so many small businesses since I left the corporate world in 2008. However, due to lack of serious planning (and funds!!!), I always end up losing so much: money and a part of me. Thankfully, I still have that dream inside me — to see myself up there with the badge “No. 1 EntrepreMom”. Sabi pa nila, wag mawawalan ng pag–asa.
With that dream hidden somewhere inside my heart and mine, I know that it’s never too late. So thank you ASUS for lifting my spirits! That one part of the three-leg workshop I’ve attended has helped fuel my dreams.
ASUS Philippines wraps up a three-part workshop series aimed at empowering people for their life’s passions.
ASUS Philippines successfully concluded the Incredible Workshop Series with the final session hosted by one of the country’s most sought-after wedding videographer and storyteller, Jason Magbanua, at Blue Leaf Filipinas in Macapagal Avenue, ASEANA Complex, Paranaque City.
The event was the last of three legs of the series that aimed to inspire and empower respective workshop attendees to take that big leap towards their life’s passions—particularly fashion and lifestyle blogging, starting a business, and video editing and wedding film making. All three legs were hosted by a luminary from fashion, business and wedding videography industry.
The first leg of the Incredible Workshop Series was held last May 24 at the Century Mall Events Center in Makati City and was hosted by premier actor, model, host and blogger Victor Basa who shared his journey to self-expression in fashion through his personal experience as a style blogger. Basa talked about finding the right inspiration towards personal style, and as well as the value of having the necessary and reliable tools to be used in his profession — particularly the ASUS Zenbook (UX305).
Basa believes that the ASUS Zenbook is integral to his true personal flair—the notebook’s sleek exterior, superior power and battery life, and breathtaking picture and video quality effortlessly compliments the fashion blogger’s mobile and stylish lifestyle.
Furthermore, the second leg, held last June 2 at the same venue, was hosted by entrepreneur, author and columnist RJ Ledesma. Ledesma, who founded the successful and pioneering food market Mercato Centrale and a host of other night food markets, plied the audience with insightful tips about finding the right recipe for a successful business start-up, and about his secret weapon, the Vivobook (TP301).
Ledesma swears by the Vivobook’s innovative flexibility—almost literally, as the notebook impressively rotates through a 360-degree hinge, allowing Ledesma to work, surf and present ideas to potential business partners however way and from whatever angle he needs and wants to.
Ending the three-leg ASUS Incredible Workshop Series is Jason Magbanua—who came fresh from documenting the weddings of celebrity “It Girls” Georgina Wilson and Solenn Heussaff—was an inspiring session on wedding video storytelling. In his presentation, Magbanua stressed the importance of timing, of always approaching from a fresh perspective, and of having the best tools, like the ever reliable ASUS Zenbook (UX305) and Vivobook (TP301).
The ASUS Zenbook and Vivobook is Magbanua’s answer to his on-the-go, active and high-powered lifestyle. The notebook’s powerful 8GB RAM and other key features allows Magbanua to breeze through the technological demands of his daily life.
On the successful reception of the Incredible Workshop Series, ASUS Philippines PR Head Anvey Factora shares that “at ASUS, we’d love to do more of this meaning engagements. Inspiring our partners is a role we take very seriously. We’d like more people to know that with the right tools and focused mindset, they can actually chase after what they’re most passionate about.”
