Modern entrepreneurs share tips on how to live, work, succeed from home
Running a business remotely adds up to the myriad of challenges the modern entrepreneur faces. Some of the country’s most inspiring business persons who have transformed themselves and their businesses share their secrets to success. Rhoda Campos-Aldanese, Beauty Scout founder “[Managing a business from home] can be challenging as the work-and-home-life balance is disrupted. Aside from thinking about how to gain exponential growth, we now have to navigate that sense of imbalance as well. It is really important to think of wellness. You need to keep your mind sharp and your body fit as well. It’s good to be in an environment that enables you to live and work well.” Winston Llamas, Wilbros Entertainment Inc. president and Wholemart Philippines CEO “As an entertainment and concert company, our concerts and events got shut down when the pandemic hit. So we had to focus on other possible areas, such as international talents acquisition. Whatever the situation is, always look at the bright side. Instead of giving up and closing down, we were able to pivot and focus on other things.” Kris Lawrence, Champ Tailors Inc. co-founder
SMDC ICE Tower Residential-Offices (RESO) will offer “spaces for success” and will soon rise at the MOA Complex. It’s a modern development that promotes balance, according to Danny Juric, who was also part of the panel as director of Plus Architecture. The Australia-based firm handled several WeWork projects and was tapped to design ICE Tower RESO. SMDC ICE Tower RESO provides 844 units in two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio configurations. Each space is designed to meet the needs of a person working from home with fiber optic technology, 100%-backup power system and emphasis on natural light and ventilation. SMDC’s new residential-office development also comes with fully-equipped meeting rooms, board rooms and other collaborative corners. A spacious function hall can host a company event or a product launch. There are designated working spaces as well that are made comfortable yet professional.
SMDC ICE Tower RESO is the latest addition to the continuously growing MOA Complex, which remains one of the best areas for property investment in Metro Manila. This innovative property concept – the first of its kind in the MOA complex whose value has been experiencing tremendous growth will enjoy a widened market base with both the residential and office markets, said Roy Amado Golez Jr., director of Research & Consultancy at Leechiu Property Consultants Inc., who was part of the panel as well.
