It was a beautiful Wednesday when I met with Jhet van Ruyven and interviewed her for the Write Conversations Podcast.
Jhet van Ruyven is the bestselling author of the book The Tale of Juliet. She was also received the People of the Year award in 2005.  
In this episode, Jhet and I talked about:
  • Her humble beginnings. They were squatters before. 
  • How she learned entrepreneurship at a young age 
  • how she would sell at Matabungkay Beach when she was a teenager, with heavy bilao on her head
  • She would see airplanes and big houses…and that inspired her to dream, pandesal, candies, 
  • What and who inspired her to write a book  
  • How one company bought 4,500 copies of her book for their employees! 
  • How she started as an entrepreneur in Canada 
  • How she hit rock bottom in her health and relationships, and how she bounced back
  • How she met Mother Teresa of Calcutta
  • She even gave tips on how to mend a broken heart and how to stay happily married.  
Inspiring Quotes from Jhet van Ruyven
  • “It’s the power of prayer that helped me.” 
  • When you have this message, the truly rich people, they go out of their way to help you.
  • God is using me to be a messenger.
  • You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.
  • Everything happens for a reason and the reason is to serve us well. Trust the process. 
  • When you donate your time and volunteer, you meet all these wonderful people. 
Listen to this episode. You will be blessed! 

I wish you success and happiness!
