Featuring Binalot on Kabuhayan Swak na Swak

Posted by Manny on May 23rd, 2007

binalotI have posted the success story of Rommel Juan before, the owner of Binalot but it is better if you can see him on video (see below). Kabuhayang Swak na Swak featured him and his business and I have noted some of his advise and story about binalot. Although he attributed his success to hard work, he still believe in luck like most true entrepreneurs. He said his concept of binalot was immediately accepted by the market probably due to luck and he have made it in the right time. It’s being in the right place at the right time.

And his advise to budding entrepreneur, you should look for your passion. “What is passion?” he asked ” When you wake up in the morning and really excited to go to your work or venture, that is passion and then when you decided to start the business, go for it!

    Hi to all, it was brought on to my attention that your show kabuhayan swak na swak has featured a internet cafe business that one control processing unit can run ten monitors. I really don’t know the exact details of the business but its somewhat like that. I’m just interested in the idea of the creator of this business and would like to ask your help if you can give me the proprietor of the business and his contact numbers.

  39. My family owns huge estate and I am the principal. Now, I have plans to start Community Supported Agriculture, integrating aqua-culture, hydroponics, greenhouse, fruits, vegetables, cut flowers production combine mix of bio-char soil amendments to improve plant growth and yields under bamboo sanctuary habitat for migratory birds and bamboo production (handicrafts). Also free range chickens, ducks, goats, cattles, pig production will be added to the many component parts in symbiotic linkage…. Workshop and short courses on sustainable farming practices and system training will also be held.
    The agro business and industry plans will be a life style vacation retreat resort with amenities-swimming pool, pavilion, rest area, kubotel, log-cabintel, picnic grove with water falls, fishing lagoon will be available.
    This is a centrifuge to create many employment, career opportunities, entrepreneural abilities, many health benefits, alleviation of poverty, economic developments, rduction of global warming, prevent soil erosion, more government revenues, eco-tourism and many more….
    To realize the pool potential of such enormous project, this is about pooling of assets to form financial consortium. An invitation for creating an atmoshere to unite individuals into groups or membership to leverage substantial financial resources for common purpose of structuring the many components in building the business in an integrated economy in a way to support initiatives.
    I am a Filipino OFW-USA visiting Manila, Phils soon to assess the project. If you can help me expedite the matters lets talk and I will meet you right away.
