On July 22, about a hundred participants filled the D’Cup Coffee Republic in Mandaluyong City to attend the event “Ignite Your Dreams.” This whole-day event was organized by Pinoy Save and Invest, and featured business and finance coaches to teach the participants how to start their path towards financial freedom. The event also gave them an inspirational boost from Filipino motivational speaker Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales.
The first speaker of the event was Allan Mantaring, founder of Pinoy Save and Invest. He shared his humble beginnings as a young man who started with nothing but his dream to become successful. His perseverance and determination to succeed fuelled him to become the author, speaker and infopreneur that he is today.
Allan was followed by fellow coaches who also shared their experience and expertise in the topic of business and finance – lifestyle coach RD Cedro, financial coach Jet Semilla and business coach Elmar Nabisa. While each have their own businesses, they all inspired the audience with the shared message of believing in the power of their dreams.
The last speaker for the day was Filipino motivational speaker Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales. In a short talk, Pocholo also shared his own journey towards building a business around what he calls the most powerful human instrument – the VOICE. He told the story of how his simple dream of hearing his voice on the radio greeting his nanay on air turned into something bigger than what he could have ever hoped for himself, which is to become the country’s most recognized Filipino voice artist. Pocholo livened up the crowd by giving a sample of the several character voices he can make. In the end, he shifted the mind of the participants from being motivated to get into business for the purpose of making money, to getting into business to find meaning and purpose in life.
