The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
Two separate violent occurrences shook our world in the past week. The first was political while the second was natural. On July 24, 2022, a shooting incident marred what should have been a joyous occasion, the graduation ceremonies of the Ateneo de Manila University School of Law. A gunman shot former mayor Rosita Furigay, of Lamitan City, Basilan; her assistant Victor George Capistrano; and, security guard Jeneven Bandiola. All died because of the shooting.
A SONA for All
The State of the Nation Address (SONA) is always imbued with optimism, lofty goals and aspirations for the nation. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. did not disappoint—he inspired Filipinos with a dream of a better country.
The President unveiled a six-year economic agenda in his first SONA on July 25 with defined targets that can be measured annually. The speech earned the respect of economists, businessmen and ordinary Filipinos, who hope the President will accomplish his noble intentions.
Full Speed Ahead
President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. won an overwhelming majority of the votes during the May 2022 national elections. He won almost 59 percent of the total votes cast in a 10-way presidential race. But now that he has been sworn in as President, he becomes the president of all Filipinos and the leader who will face 100 percent of the problems our country is facing.
