BRANDING: I keep talking about how important branding is and here’s what I learned being so brand conscious myself as a kid growing up due to 3 things: 1. Family influence 2. Peer Pressure studying in a private school and 3. Marketing. So many people tend to buy brand names no matter if it’s good quality or not, good looking or not. So much relies on branding for a brand to be successful and it’s sale pricing has a lot to do with, yes, branding. People may look at it as funny, but shouldn’t it be the other way around, that brands pay you to wear a large bold logo of their brand rather paying outrageous amounts to wear it for “exclusivity”?
A brand is psychological, it makes a lot of people feel good about themselves when using something that’s 20-50x of what it’s really worth. While a brand sometimes does portray quality, some brands just portray someone’s status quo or how much someone is really spending to keep that short sense of fulfillment going. 💯

Read first before anything else – 5 movies every young big dreamer should watch at least twice:
5. FYRE – Learn social media and how NOT to plan events. LOL
4. Catch Me If You Can – Discover the essential entrepreneur skillsets here. These are still spot on to this day.
3. 12 Angry Men – A classic film. Lessons on negotiation and persuasion secrets you might not know yet.
2. The Devil Wears Prada – All about people and branding skills plus how to master those uncomfortable situations with the people you work with.
1. The Founder – Important lessons on starting a scalable business from scratch.
Notice that I didn’t add “The Wolf of Wallstreet” here. I watched it a lot of times already, I stopped counting, but I’d rather read Jordan Belfort’s book “Way of the wolf” instead. I just don’t like the idea of selling people a “lifestyle” and not a real system to lure people in. Besides, Leonardo DiCaprio is already on this list.
PS. I didn’t take into consideration the entertainment value of the movies/documentaries here, hence no “feel good” or award winning movies like Wolf of Wall Street, Pursuit of Happyness or The Social Network. I’ll make another Top 10-12 list for movies every Entrepreneur should watch.

In case you lived under a rock, E-Sports is now the biggest marketing draw globally for entertainment. It overtook television last year and already takes in double the amount of digital music and box office films combined. The amount of attention that this type of entertainment gets is huge.
In the Philippines alone, there are over 40 million gamers and about 80% of them spend money on games, a total of almost $600M USD last year, something brands should be taking note of.

When you are asked: What exactly do you want? And your answer is close to this phrase below in parenthesis, your answer is WRONG.
You’re paid for the value you provide, not for what you want. What problem or gap can you solve? What can you create to help others? What you can offer will provide VALUE to others so they in turn, they will pay you for what you give to them. Find your niche and your product/service. Then screw the common excuses like “I have no talent. I have no skills. I’m not passionate about something.”, because if that’s the case, stick to your JOB. This is not for everybody.
When you start to realize that life is not a picnic, that if you want something, you have to do something significant with value. Stop thinking the next person who is more successful than you is just “lucky”. We make our own luck with work that we put in consistenly.

I stumbled upon this Podcaster that posted on his Twitter that Podcast listenership has dropped down significantly during this pandemic, and that’s why he’s slowed down on creating episodes that he normally does. Which actually proves my point, not that what he said was true (yes, audience consumption has gone down because there are less commuters now), but because of the attitude he just displayed towards it.
The reason why you should create content like Podcasts or YouTube videos with CONSISTENCY is NOT primarily to gain a massive audience or monetize it, it’s because you love what you’re doing and you share your thoughts regardless if you have 1 audience or 1 million audience. If your primary intent to create or start one is because you want to gain massive audience or monetize it quickly, you’re most likely going to fail miserably and fall flat on your face. You do things that you love to do consistently because it makes you happy, not because it is your job or you wanna make money. I’m gonna repeat it for those who need to understand it again, DO THINGS THAT YOU LOVE TO DO WITH PASSION AND CONSISTENCY EVEN IF YOU ENCOUNTER TOUGH TIMES IN BETWEEN.

You can always start by helping ONE person. The problem is that people want to help MANY people right away, and that’s where it gets difficult to begin with. You don’t have to help many right away. You just start with 1, then another 1, and another 1.
You already get my point…

“Ningas Cogon” or “Ningas Kugon” – an attitude when someone starts something with interest and enthusiasm, then after a very short time, loses interest and stops whatever it is he/she is doing. Leaving things incomplete. Just like a wild fire burning out quickly.
The lack of commitment with today’s generation is mind boggling. So many people asking for support for something that they want to start doing instead of just actually doing it consistently so they don’t need to ask for support because they’re already putting in the work required. And when it gets tough, they just stop because it’s “hard”.
Everyone wants it “easy” always because they think they’re entitled to their dreams. 💯 … See MoreSee Less
