How was your week? Last week was a busy and happy one for me. I gave three talks on Productivity, Gratitude, and Money to two corporate clients and one public seminar.
On October 19, I also celebrated my birthday. Again, I was so blessed and happy with all the greetings and surprises from my family and friends. My 5-year old and 7-year old siblings, who are based in the province, made birthday cards for me. My Papa scanned them and emailed to me. Haha! Then my best friend Trix gathered video greeting from my family and friends here and abroad and showed the video to me during our group dinner. Thank you! Thank you!
On Saturday, we also had the Money&Me Conference-for-a cause. We donated 100% of the net proceeds to one-year old Baby Kier who was diagnosed with rare cancer of the eye. Baby Kier was there in our event and he was such a happy and bouncy baby! Were you there? Thank you for your support and love! 🙂 I’d like to specially mention Ms. Rebecca V for donating a significant amount for Baby Kier and Zeppelin Coworking Space located at 11 Brixton Street, Kapitolyo, Pasig City as our venue partner.
Our theme at the Money&Me Conference-for-a cause was “How to Make Extra Money without Quitting Your Job…Yet!” I invited panelists who talked about how they make money using their talents and how they make money using the internet.
The key word is VALUE. If you want to make money, give value. Today, money is no longer equated to the number of hours you render. Today, more than ever, money is equated to VALUE. For example, as a professional speaker, I now earn in one hour what I used to earn in one month when I was a bank employee.
You get paid for the value you give. So how do you give more value? You need to keep investing in yourself. Read books. Attend seminars. Enrol in courses. Seek mentors. The more value you can give, the more you get paid.
This is the reason why I love our community at Write University. We keep learning, we keep giving value, and we keep growing.
