200 CAR entrepreneurs learn tips to be successful in ASENSO

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, Oct. 18 (PIA) -- Entrepreneurs should have the drive, vision, flexibility, and open mindedness to succeed.


Clarke Nebrao, chairman of the Association of Laguna Food Processors, inspired and motivated around 200 small, medium and micro entrepreneurs who attended the Annual Summit of Enterprising SETUP Clients and Opportunities (ASENSO) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) during the Regional Science and Technology Week held at the Kalinga Astrodome here last week.

A successful entrepreneur is willing to risk loss in order to make money; he is open to failures and fresh thinking, responsive and determined to pursue opportunities, Nebrao stressed.

Sharing how he became a thriving businessman, he pointed out certain personality traits or attitudes that should be developed.

First is the “I dream” - parating nangangarap, nag-iisip kung paano ba pagandahin ang kabuhayan. Quoting Dr. Abdul Karam’s motto of “Dreams are not the ones that you have in your sleep. True dreams are the ones that don’t let you sleep.” Nebrao said an entrepreneur should carefully think what he wants to achieve and how to achieve this.

The “I Love to Learn” attitude, on the other hand, means seeking adventure, trying new things and being creative.

The “I Survive that is” behavior is developing the ability to overcome barriers and bouncing back from failures and discouragement, Nebrao said.

He said entrepreneurship has a fruit. One is innovation that is driven by willingness to create and how to improve oneself. Under innovation, it makes a difference in lifestyles.

‘If we have innovation, we should also have a passion to achieve the goal, and a passion to share our goal,” he added.

Nebrao defines IMSMES as Innovator, Market, Self, Master, Escalate, and Serve.

“Gusto mo mapagaan ang iyong buhay? Make business, apply under SETUP of the DOST, Nebrao enjoined the participants. (JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
