From Grit to Great with Jonathan Yabut at #LiveBrighterSession

11:17:00 AM

To be honest, whenever I get invited to talks, I tend to judge that it might be a long and boring talk. But ever since I tried Sunlife's seminars, I've been excited to join because the financial topics they provide are very informative and are "eye opener" for someone like me who has little idea when it comes to financial literacy. 

So when I got an invite from Sir Arnel to attend a #LiveBrighterSession entitled: From Grit to Great with Jonathan Yabut, I grabbed the opportunity to be there and participate in the talk.


For those who don't know who Jonathan Yabut is, he is the first ever winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia" hosted by Malaysian business mogul Tony Fernandez and as a prize, he became the Chief of Staff of Air Asia for a year. He currently runs his own company "JY Consultancy & Ventures" which operates in Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.


Through the #LiveBrighterSession, which was attended by bloggers and aspiring financial advisors, he shared with story of how he rose from humble beginnings to become a successful businessman and an in-demand motivational speaker. He also imparted the work principles that has brought him to where he is now and he gave emphasis to the importance of serving a social purpose which can give you the drive to keep improving work. Check out my Facebook Live during the session.


Another speaker that night was Sunlife Financial Advisor JP Cruz who gave the attendees an inside look at his own career and his personal journey. He shared how he was able to reach rock bottom in both his financial and love life and what he did to overcome these struggles. Now that he is a successful Sunlife Advisor, Cruz interestingly stressed a thought akin to what Yabut emphasized: that is to have a deeper reason for the work one pursues. In his case, Cruz finds it by helping people achieve lifetime financial security.


"There's so much inspiration to be had in this Live Brighter Session between Jonathan's and JP's stories. I'm sure that the bloggers who joined us in the venue and even those who tuned in via Facebook Live found motivation to continue pursuing their dreams and finding a purpose to serve," SunLife Financial Advisor Recruitment Manager Fin Bernardo said. "We hope that this also opens to them opportunities that they can enjoy if they become a financial advisor. It's a career that's definitely meaningful, and at the same time, financially rewarding."

For those interested to attend the #LiveBrighterSession, they will be in Cebu and Davao!
