Philippines Part 1 – Baguio!
After Hong Kong and China, I went to the Philippines to support my business partners there. After 1 day in Manila, we went on a memorable trip to Baguio with my partners Mel Clarion, Arnel Domasian and Ed Miguel. This trip was fun because I had one of my upcoming superstars, Suren Sabadi fly in from Malaysia to spend a few days with me. I wanted him to come and follow me around and learn first hand on how to build a successful business; I guess you can say it was an apprenticeship. Suren reminds me a lot of myself and Scott McGee; we were all young and hungry and incredible desire to be successful. And I could see that desire from the way Suren devours self development books and audios. It's impressive. I enjoyed helping and teaching him and it reminded me of something I learned when I was at Suren's stage; successful people always enjoy helping mentoring someone that is hungry and willing to work hard?! And why do successful people do that? Cause they were in their shoes not long ago!
So the lesson here is… if you are willing to “give it your all” and make the sacrifices, then someone successful will come and help you. It may take you some time to hunt that person down, but that person does exist. It did for me and now I return the favor by mentoring others.
Here are some highlights of our trip.
Next stop… to Manila and then to Bacolod!
See you in Bacolod!
