The Truly Rich Club Entrepreneurship Seminar
I was very blessed to attend the two-day seminar for entrepreneurs conducted by Dean Pax Lapid through Bo Sanchez' Truly Rich Club. It was an enlightening experience to witness a synergy of different business mentoring ideas from the top business mentors.
A very good topic discussed was that if you are technically the expert in a field, it doesn't follow that you can make the business in that area. Being technical doesn't equate to being entrepreneurial, a concept that I know but was not very aware of prior to this seminar.
In PnC Phtography, we wanted to grow so that we could serve more clients. However, for the past few years we were focusing on the the technicalities, doing R&D's and product improvements, but didn't put much effort on approaching growth through an entrepreneur's eyes. Thus resulting to a minimal growth in terms of operations. By applying what I've learn in this seminar, it widen my horizon to take a step back and identify areas more than the technicalities of the business, so that we could pursue our dream for this company.
Our vision for PnC Photography was to let more people experience happiness in their events and partner with us so that we could capture those happy moments. Having been equipped with a lot of ideas and methodologies and frameworks through this entrepreneur seminar, hopefully we could develop and implement strategies into making this vision into reality.
Many thanks again to the business mentors of this TRC Entrepreneurship Seminar and for allowing me to meet other business-minded people so we could help each other and provide quality services and products to our nation. God bless everyone.
A very exciting day for the family as we're able to confirm that, yes! we're indeed having an addition to our family. We're in awe as we finally confirmed the heartbeat coming from Cali's tummy. What made it extra special was the fact that we're able to recover from our last year's tragedy of a failed pregnancy.
So after the good news as much as we wanted to celebrate, we rushed to Heirloom for our debutant's (Micah) pre event shoot. It was our first time to do the shoot in that venue with minimal information about the place. Good enough when we arrived, the owner, Mr. Juco was a member of Couples for Christ so we have something common to talk about. Based from our conversation, he's just into metalworks, designs and arts and wasn't intentionally making his place as a pre-event location shoot as a business. A good thing about the place was that if we're finding it hard to see a good location in other pre event venues, here, there's a lot of space to shoot from. I think there's too many angles and spots that you can't fit all of your planned shoots just in a day to capture everything.
One of the things I realized in this shoot was the importance of team work. With all the suppliers working in an event, for this example, a debut, every role is important and that everyone is equal in terms of the value they add to the shoot. I remember one photographer who was featured in Manila Bulletin that no one should feel above the other event suppliers. Meaning, even if you're the most expensive photographer, you can never put yourself on a pedestal and snob the other suppliers.
So for us, in order to produce a good photo, we need to work with: the Stylist, Make Up Artist, Models, Videographer and the Venue Owner and of course the subject.
Quite unusual for our debut shoot is that our model gets her energy from vodka which worked out well as she was able to overcome shyness when projecting in the camera.
We packed up by about ten in the evening already. As if the day wasn't long enough yet, we needed to rush back to Laguna to deliver the photos to one of our wedding clients.
