A number of business persons have been featured in our list of inspiring and successful Filipino entrepreneurs. While the story of business success, in itself, may be considered as inspiring by many, there’s a special ring to rags-to-riches stories.
We (hopefully) learn from our own experience. We also learn from the experience of others, both from those who failed and from successful Pinoy Entrepreneurs. Let’s see what we can pick up from the awardees in the recently-concluded search for the Entrepreneur of the Year Philippines 2012, organized and presented by Ernst & Young, which was announced on 18 October 2012 at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
In business and entrepreneurship, just like in any aspect of life, those who are inspired are among the successful lot. Of course, some say it’s better to be smart that being inspired (or that success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration), but, all things being equal, an inspired person persists through challenges and gets ahead of the rest.
