Today is Important!

A few days ago I read in Oswald Chamber’s devotional about “God’s purpose or Mine?” That day made me realize that what is important is today… and I can accomplish God’s purpose today. I get caught up getting so involved in a “purpose driven destination” but I miss the “purpose driven moment.” Whatever vision I have for myself, for my artists, for the Philippines.. or “whatever it may be.. God’s purpose for me is to DEPEND ON HIM and on HIS power now. If I can stay clam, faithful and unconfused while in the middle of the turmoil of life, the goal and purpose of God is being accomplished in me.” Oswald Chambers. Apart from Him everything is meaningless anyways… I am glad to be reminded that today is always important. The decisions I make today will eventually become my destiny. I don’t know how to get to my destiny now but I know how to get through today. Why should I worry and feel inadequate with what I see in the future. Again .. today is today. Tomorrow is in God’s hands.

open doors

Opportunities are opening for me internationally. I believe the 2nd and 3rd generation Overseas Filipinos (immigrants) who are more foreign than Filipino are hungry for identity. Entertainers/Artist will probably help them understand who they are and will create a connection to home…. Also Overseas Contract Workers who are out there and everywhere want to see “kababayans” perform to satisfy curiosity to know “what’s new”, “who is new”, etc. in the Philippines. One such artist is Kitchie Nadal who is booked to perform in Dubai and Abu Dhabi on August 24, 25 and 26. She has tentative bookings also in Guam (pending visa approval) on August 31, September 1 and 2, Kuwait September 15 and in the US from October 19 to Nov 4 all on 2006.. and all during her term breaks. Her classes will not be affected : ) Another is a newbie..Aimee Villarico who was chosen to be a part of the cast in a Canadian independent documentary film. The budget is minimal but the experience is priceless … There are man

Exciting day!!

Today was an exciting day!! 1. Rode a jeepney to my appointments.. Save gas! 2. I met up with my old friend for lunch.. her name is Josephine Turalba. She is a jewelry designer and painter. We went to UP Diliman together back in the 80’s and we’ve been best friends since… I would eat "galungong" the fish in her house always and would scuba dive almost every weekend during college. We talked about her up coming painting show (probably next year) and she wanted a manager to be able to put direction and focus to her art. I was thrilled and privilege to do it because I’ve always known that jingjing is a great artist!!! I believe that her paintings and other artworks will been seen around the world. She won an international jewelry competition in Italy last year so.. why not manage this woman.. hehe. I’ll play it by ear… http://www.josephineturalba.com/ Royal Brush Oil Color Brush Kit 3. After I met up with Aimee for a VTR in √©lan. I met international models like Ingrid s

pointers on artist management

I receive allot of demos, emails, and text messages from artists who need management. I would decline since I will not be able to fulfill the obligations it will take to fully manage an artist. I believe there are many out there who would love to learn how to be one … Here are some tips on being and artists manager: 1. Character is no. 1 “It is not about the manager but about the artist.. (if you’re like me.. its really about God!)” Ask yourself: Will this please God? Will my artists benefit? Am I greedy? Am I thinking long term? There are many character issues that will surface. It’s always better to talk about it and be honest 1st with God, 2nd with the artist and 3rd with yourself. If you are willing to be open and honest with everything .. let’s proceed to no. 2. 2. Pray!! Hey be ready for God’s open doors. It only takes 1 anointed idea or connection to make it to the top. It is best that it comes from God. Every gift from God He adds no trouble into it. 3. You need to be administ

i am a child of God

I grew up in a family of six children four girls ( i being the youngest girl ) and two boys. My mom was the one who brought us up.. single-parent, super hard working mommy! Bringing us up was a big deal and i honor my mother by doing her very best to raise us up alone! By my mom's sheer determination and focus...all of us finished college and we are all doing our "own thing." One went to the "health" thing. The other went to the "corporate" thing, two went to the "family" business thing and the other two went to the "arts" thing... I guess with the influence of my mommy, i felt that i need to be very sherwd with finances. Spending was hard for me but saving and earning money was easy.. I would get a job easy, find a bussiness, etc. Money is not the issue but the "love of money" was.. Growing up and watching my mother worked so hard made me afraid of not having enough..I wanted to become rich and famous so i won't have
