He founded (and leads) a number of organizations and businesses. He has a weekly show, a daily radio program, and a daily internet TV show. He is an author of 30 best-selling books and publisher of eight periodicals. He is a loving husband to his wife Marowe and a devoted father to his sons Benedict and Francis.
My favorite part? He is my mentor and friend. And Bo Sanchez is a mentor and friend to thousands (or even millions) of people as well.
You can have him as your mentor and friend, too!
There are three ways by which you can get Bo Sanchez as your mentor and friend.
1. Read his books.
Two weeks ago, I went on a silent retreat — by myself — to a really quiet place in Tagaytay. It’s so quiet and peaceful I think I was the only guest that day. Guess who facilitated my retreat? It was none other than Bro. Bo Sanchez himself!
Nope, he was not with me physically. I brought with me his book Don’t Worry, Be Happy. That was what I read for the day. I followed the Action Steps he mentioned at the end of each chapter. My retreat blew away the stress that was eating me up the past days and I came back to Manila energized, refreshed, and armed with a 14-page Creative Ideas, Plans, and Dreams which I wrote down during my retreat.
I love Bo Sanchez’ books — they’re light, funny, and insightful. They’re also very easy-to-read. I bet you could read his book in one sitting.
When I travel, I would usually fill my luggage with his books. His books are also my default “gifts” to my family and friends during special occasions. I think I’ve read all of his books at least once. While reading his books, I would usually laugh, smile, nod in agreement or pick up my idea bank and write something down.
I believe his books greatly influenced my writing style. I used to write in an oh-so-formal way. Now, I do try my best to make my blogs and book easy-to-read, short, and insightful. 🙂
If you’re looking for gifts to give your friends or yourself this Christmas, you may want to consider getting a copy (or copies) of his books. 🙂
2. Listen to His Talks “live”
Bo charges an arm-and-a-leg when he gives talks to corporations. Guess what? You can hear his talks “live” without paying a penny.
Every Sunday, Bo Sanchez gives a talk twice at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City during the weekly gathering of the Light of Jesus Community called The Feast PICC.
If you live in Manila (or near Manila), you can just go to PICC on Sundays and attend either the first session which is at 8am-10am or the second session which is at 10:45am-12:45pm. The gathering includes the Holy Mass, singing and worship, and the 45-minute talk of Bro. Bo Sanchez. If you love concerts and you want to have clean, holy, and insightful fun on a Sunday, The Feast PICC is the perfect place to go to. Bring your friends and families.
I just attended the Feast in PICC this morning and as usual, I was rejuvenated and energized. I felt that Bo Sanchez was talking to me personally. His message hit me to the core.
He said people have dreams but their dreams remain dreams because they don’t act on them. They don’t act on their dreams because of fear — fear of being laughed at, fear of making mistakes, fear of failing.
And here’s his message. To overcome fear,
“Your goal is to launch an imperfect product and let people laugh at you.” – Bo Sanchez
His message every Sunday keeps on getting better and better. No wonder, thousands of people flock to PICC every Sunday to attend the Feast and listen to his talk as was beautifully captured in the above photo.
3. Join his Truly Rich Club (affiliate link)
If you’re not residing in Manila (or near Manila) and you would like to hear Bo Sanchez’ talks in the comforts of your own homes, you may check out his Truly Rich Club.
I’ve been a member of Bo Sanchez’ Truly Rich Club for almost three years now and this is is one of my best learning investments at a very friendly price.
There are a number of things that I really like about Truly Rich Club.
a. *God Whispers. As a member of his Truly Rich Club, I get to receive personalized, inspiring, and encouraging notes like this:
Imagine receiving positive and encouraging words everyday? Wouldn’t that make you happier and a little more positive each day? 🙂
b. Power Talks. I always look forward to downloading two digital audio Power Talks every month. I would save these talks in my phone and play them every morning while I’m preparing for work or while I’m having my breakfast.
Here are the sample topics from Bo Sanchez’ Power Talks:
- Find Your Emotional Why
- Create Your Wealth Beliefs
- Be Consistently Aggressive
- How to Love Your Body
- How to Grow Your Finances
c. Interview with Bo Sanchez’ Mentors. Yes! Bo Sanchez has mentors, too! He keeps on learning and growing. I believe that I also keep on learning and growing with him as I read his books and listen to his talks.
From time to time, he would interview his mentors and the recording of his interviews with his mentors could be downloaded online as part of what you can get as a member of Truly Rich Club.
d. Stocks Updates. I love this! I thought that investing in stocks is complicated.. Well, not when you’re properly guided in a simple, easy-to-understand terms.
Here’s a sample of what I receive bi-monthly. 🙂
Choosing which stocks to buy, when to buy, and when to sell became simple.
I’m a very busy person (or maybe I’m just “feeling” busy sometimes, hehe!). I don’t have time to monitor the market. Yet, my stocks grew by about 20% last year. I sold my stocks, and voila, I was able to fulfill my dream of touring Paris, France, and Italy and participate in World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid, Spain. I credit this to the stocks update I got from Truly Rich Club.

I am sharing this with you because I’ve been blessed through all these means — Bo Sanchez’ books, The Feast, and the Truly Rich Club. I’ve become a happier and more positive person. I’ve become more aggressive towards my dreams and remain gentle and loving as a person. I’ve learned to laugh at my mistakes. I love the fact that I am a work-in-progress and that I keep on learning and growing…And many more! 🙂
I don’t want you to miss out on these great learning opportunities.
How have you been blessed by Bo Sanchez’ books or talks? Please share in the comments.
I wish you success and happiness! Merry Christmas! 🙂
