3rd Mompreneur Summit


I was recently invited to attend my first Mompreneur Summit and have to say that it was more than worth it to spend a Saturday afternoon listening to inspiring stories and advice shared by a selected number of speakers. The snap above was taken while I was asking a question during the Q&A portion of the event.

Here are some quotes from the speakers of this year’s summit that stuck with me:

Hindy Weber Tantoco“Giving our children quality experiences is a priority for my husband and I. Not things they can buy or watch.” – Hindy Weber-Tantoco, Founder Holy Carabao Farms & The Fun Farm

Rose Fausto“Buy luxury items only if you can afford to buy at least ten pieces of it.” Rose Fres-Fausto, Financial Expert/ FQ advocate

Mia Fausto-Cruz“Invest in amazing packaging (for your brand). You’d be surprised how many products we’ve been unable to feature because of this.” – Mia Fausto-Cruz, editor-in-chief of Smart Parenting

Eileen Juan 1“You can never teach values. But you can always teach skills.” (tips on choosing her team), Eileen Juan, Founder & CEO of The Picture Company

Rissa Mananquil-Trillo“You will never feel successful in your business, if you’re not successful at home.” Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, owner of Happy Skin Cosmetics

Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez“If you want to get into entrepeneurship, you have to make the jump, do it wholeheartedly 100%.” – Jacque Yuenchian-Guttierrez, owner of Happy Skin Cosmetics

Mutya Laxa-Buensuceso“Eliminate your guilt (for being a working mom), guilt will just make you stay stuck in a middle ground. When you spend time with your children choose quality over quantity. You know it’s quality when even you’re having fun and the kids fondly remember it. ” – Mutya Laxa-Buensuceso, Country Manager of Luxasia Philippines
