I went to the US and worked for 10 years. For me, there’s no other place more beautiful than the Philippines. I worked as an engineer for 20 years. Starting with buying slot machines in Vegas and doing further training there. At first, I thought there is money in electronics. Yes, If you do manufacturing! That’s when I got into doing traffic lights and remote controls. I was a consultant for security alarm systems. When the bombing incidents happened in the early 2000s, I closed that business. I shifted from hardware to software after that. I found out how marketing is so important. I’m specializing now in internet marketing. It is very technical. Shifting from one field to another takes so much time. I’m still learning myself. Life is a continuous journey of learning.
