Roundtable: How to succeed in a local business
MANILA, Philippines – So you’re an entrepreneur, or an aspiring one, who dreams of putting up a successful business – something you can be proud of; that runs itself, that hits all targets and goals, or makes a positive impact on society. You’re not alone.
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) make up over 90% of registered businesses in the Philippines today. With tech-savvy, purpose-driven millennials being dubbed by Forbes as the most entrepreneurial generation today, emerging business owners are often young, and they all dream of combining work with passion.

They all face the same big question: how does one create success as an entrepreneur?
Unlike in traditional corporate settings, an entrepreneur's success is not set. In fact, even the very definition of success is subjective. Every entrepreneur will go through his or her own set of triumphs and failures, challenges, opportunities, and risks. How then can you overcome these obstacles and thrive?
It’s scary not having a formula, but with the right tools, each entrepreneur has the power to create success in his or her own terms.
On Wednesday, December 7, we hosted a roundtable discussion with a group of local business owners who shared their personal tales of passion, failure, and success.
Our guests were:
- Jourdan Sebastian, co-founder of Taclob
- Andrea Arancon, owner of Craft Carrot
- Kendrick Co, founder of Antidote Brand Divergence, Inc.
This roundtable was hosted by fellow entrepreneur, RJ Ledesma.
Be inspired to follow your own entrepreneurial dreams by tuning in on the discussion. – Rappler.com
