I recommend to anyone who is planning to start a business or already has a business up and running to go to your favorite bookstore and pick up a copy of GoNegosyo. Inside you will find inspirational stories on how some of our country biggest names in business started. I was fortunate enough to have bough mine at the National Book store in SM mall of Asia where there was a book-signing event where I was able to meet face to face with our countries top entrepreneurs. Needless to say, the feeling of meeting the industry leaders of established brands and businesses in the Philippines made me instantly daydream of joining their ranks someday I asked for their autograph.
This book is what the entrepreneurial spirit within all of us needs to be inspired to go out there and start our own business despite pessimistic views and comments you might hear from your friends or even family members that is usually associated when one is bold enough to venture into business. You will hear the usual negativity when starting a business like its already crowded, competition is fierce and cutthroat or madami na meron yan wag kana makisawsaw pa. But all this criticism should serve to inspire us more rather than to discourage us from achieving our dreams. The Philippines needs more entrepreneurs to help create more jobs and to be more competitive in the global market. Go Negosyo, Go Pinoy!
