Masigasig, Go Negosyo on TV

For people trying to start their own businesses, I suggest you set an alarm in your cellphones to sound at 6:30 pm of every Saturday to remind you of Masigasig, a television show on entrepreneurship at QTV Channel 11. The show, sponsored by Globe, provides advice from leading business experts, money-make overs, and the latest on Globe products and services. Not sure, but I think the show is sometimes hosted by Arnel Ignacio, sometimes by Jolina Magdangal, both entrepreneurs themselves.

Although I haven't watched the show at full length, I have seen some pretty interesting stuff so far. I remember one segment about an upcoming meat-processing business in Pampanga named "Royal Deli". The owner/entrepreneur who wanted to enter the Metro Manila market got some useful advice from the owner (I think) of Mekeni Food Corporation, a more accomplished meat-processing company also from Pampanga. That's something considering they are to certain extent competitors.

Another segment I remember was the one on Fruits in Ice Cream, a company which has set its eyes at producing ice cream for such discriminating markets like Japan. And the people behind a company, a small group who knows exactly what they are doing, have been successful so far. They now supply ice cream for Japan Airlines, really good models for new entrepreneurs.

Of course, you should also take note of the Joey Concepcion's Go Negosyo television show which runs from 11:00 to 11:30 pm every Monday and replays at 3:00 to 3:30 pm every Saturday at RPN 9. The show also showcases very inspiring stories of the most successful entrepreneurs in our country. Happy watching, happy learning.
