I have been selling products on eBay and making money at it. I would like to upload more of our inventory to eBay but it is very time consuming to upload one at a time and then even more so to keep it updated. If I sell something on eBay but I am actually sold out, I have to cancel the order and that sometimes results in negative feedback and eBay lowers my DSR. Does that sound like you?

2 Filipinos named in Asia Society Summit Class of 2017

Asia Society has named two Filipinos as part of the Asia 21 Young Leaders Summit Class of 2017 to be held in Australia late this year. Cherrie Atalino and Eleanor Pinugu Agricultural Systems International Inc. (AGREA) founder and president/CEO Cherrie Atilano and Mano Amiga Academy founder Eleanor Rosa Pinugu will represent the Philippines in the Asia 21 core group of accomplished young leaders representing multiple countries and a wide range of fields to explore and propose positive actions to critical issues facing the Asia-Pacific region. Atilano and Pinugu were included in the 30-member Asia 21 Class of 2017 for being “change-makers, visionaries, and leaders in their own fields that have made significant contributions to society.” Atilano’s AGREA is an agro-social enterprise with a mission to help farming and fishing families in Marinduque island by bringing together local businesses, academia, communities and local and national governments and international partners towards its vision of “Ecology of Dignity,” with a vision to help eradicate poverty and help establish food security in the Philippines while helping alleviate effects of climate change. The AGREA leader defines her role in the social enterprise: “Leadership is leading the way you like to be led. It is about empowering and enabling people and having the humility to listen, learn and serve.” Atilano previously worked as a consultant for the Department of Agrarian Reform to establish 241 farmer cooperatives in the Philippines. Asia Society, founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd, recognizes Atilano as a World Economic Forum Global Read More …

UPLB researchers develop insect-resistant Biotech Talong

University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) researchers have developed the first bio technology crop in the Philippines, the Bt Talong (Eggplant). The bio tech eggplant is resistant against its chronic pest, the eggplant fruit and shoot borer (EFSB) which damages the regular eggplant and reportedly normally results to nearly 80% of yield loss especially during high incidence of infestation. The newly developed crop is seen as an important source of income for small farmers which accounts for more than 30% of the volume of vegetable production, according to the SEARCA report about the Institute of Plant Breeding at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (IPB-UPLB) project. The pest’s gut, similar to that of the corn borer, is affected by the toxin produced by the cry1a gene. Bt talong uses the gene from the soil borne bacteria Bacillus thuringensis to control EFSB, similar to the first commercialized biotech corn. Bt talong varieties developed by IPB-UPLB contained a transformation event developed by Mahyco in India and introgressed into local open-pollinated varieties through backcrossing.  The biotech eggplant is the first public-sector initiated research and the first biotech food crop developed in the Philippines. With the field trials of Bt talong already completed, confirming the efficacy of the technology against the fruit and shoot borer and its safety towards beneficial and non-target insects is the next step. Farmers are set to gain from the adoption of Bt talong with significant reduction in yield loss, lesser use of pesticides, and increased income.  Consumers are expected to benefit from pesticide-free eggplants that will be Read More …

SM keeps green with 8 more solar powered Supermalls

SM has completed 3 new solar panels projects in SM City Cauayan, Cabanatuan, and Iloilo with 5 more malls to be fitted with clean energy as part of its sustainable environment initiatives. SM City Cauayan recently launched its 342-panel solar power facility SM will next complete its solar power fitting for five more solar powered malls – SM City Dasmarinas SM City Trece Martires, SM City Olongapo, SM City Tuguegarao Downtown, and SM Seaside City Cebu. SM City Cauayan launched its 342-panel solar power facility capable of producing approximately 105,678kWh annually – enough to light up 9,700 10-watt light bulbs or fully charge 26,358 cellphones. SM Mall of Asia inaugurated in 2016 a 2.7-MW solar power facility almost twice the capacity of SM City North Edsa’s1.5-MW solar rooftop installation. SM launched its first solar rooftop project in the country in 2014 at SM City North Edsa, the first mall in the Philippines to become solar powered. SM estimates that by the end of this phase, “SM will have approximately 33,000 solar panels capable of producing 8.9 megawatts of electricity – enough to fully charge around 1.3 million cellphones, light up 890,000 10-watt LED lamps, run 297,000 30-watt electric fans, or provide power to almost 6000 households.” “SM Prime has always been committed to reduce greenhouse emissions and maximize energy efficiency in our malls. This is just one of the many renewable projects we have been doing and we will continue with finding ways on how to make our operations more Read More …

18 Tips to Create a Positive Mindset

If there is one thing I am grateful for, it’s my ability to see the beauty that life can offer instead of being disheartened by the obstacles that come my way.  Thomas A. Edison once said, “I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.”  In any kind of business, we will all inevitably come across failure. We will sometimes be disappointed with the results of our efforts.  But we need to realize that we can only do so much—that even with a seemingly perfect plan, things could go wrong halfway through the process.  So how do we deal with it? As a business mentor, I have met many that inspired me to continue my advocacy of helping Filipinos elevate their status by engaging in businesses, no matter how small.  Some of them almost gave up after struggling with the businesses they started. I asked these disheartened entrepreneurs: “What do you think is causing your business to fail?”  I was surprised with their reply. I was expecting them to tell me that they didn't know enough about the business they entered.  But the reason was: they lacked faith in themselves and had doubts that they could make the business work.  When I asked them why, they replied that each struggle with the business seemed to be pulling them down deeper. When a person has a positive attitude in life, trials and tribulations become a “gold mine of learning.” We never really know how much further we Read More …
