Fun and exciting gathering like this was an awesome experience. Entrepreneurs were so motivated and sincere in how they respond to the queries of the attendees mostly would-be entrepreneurs and those who would like to improve their businesses.

At first, she was excited to do all the plans, all the targets, all the calculations to reach the quantities they need, but in the end she said, "mahirap pala" (not that easy executing your goals). Being positive and having supportive husband and family helped them sustain the momentum of their business since its inception back in October 2008.
Her family support was her inspiration. “We love it, so they should love it! (Human Nature products),” her husband’s remarks to push her to go on with their venture.
