Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!
“The listed items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.”
It is indeed a booster to our sense of belonging every time we reminisce how our mere workmates from the very first day of work become an extended family after how many met deadlines, resolved conflicts and released paychecks with performance bonuses.
But how can you say if the people inside the office really treat you like a family?There are perhaps several ways. The most I am sure of though is when the office people do not just coach you plainly about your corporate responsibilities. It is when these same people also teach you health tips and wellness advisories, “persistently”.
In the list below are wellness essentials I recommend to my family at work. These are my must-have items when I visit my only trusted health retailer, Watsons. These are all inside my work bag per shift.
The work schedule makes it hard for us to consistently buy the natural food source of vitamins and minerals. This fails us to achieve the enough daily nutritional requirement to be healthy. Thus, having handy tablets at your work pouch makes it easier for a hard working person like you to maintain strong immunity.
This is indeed the most specific item in the list for the corporate persons who are tasked to talk almost entirely in their work hours like the sales and marketing team. Apart from the daily work demand on your throat, the varying room temperatures among several sales venues makes your throat dry and more vulnerable to pathogens. Ascertain that you have a healthy URT daily to deliver your persuasive spiels. Guard it with an Antibacterial “candy”.
Brushing your teeth is not enough to deter the growth of bacteria in your mouth that might predispose you to more serious health concerns. An antiseptic gargle both disinfects your mouth and gets rid of unpleasant smell – a plus point when networking.
The product in this list which I am the most thankful of. This is my portable and economical “aroma therapy and sleep-inducing scent”. It simply works like an instant drug for me. It relaxes, soothes and brings me to a sound sleep like magic. Roll that stress away!
6. (Elective) Facial Mask (DEOPROCE COLOR SYNERGY EFFECT MASK YELLOW SHEET – Snail and Honey, PhP 65)
Skin care products which contain Snail extract had helped me a lot in maintaining a pleasant complexion for two years now. The agent in the Snail slime which repairs damaged tissues and restores hydration made my skin look more well-nourished and highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.
When we start looking after each other’s health, not just because we value the contribution of that person to the department’s success, but more importantly because we care for the life aspirations of that person, we do not plainly see the structure as an organizational chart anymore. Now, it is a family tree. A new normal in the workplace. May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home

Christmas parties, may it be hosted by your company, your clan or a comrade, turn out to be merrier (and more Instagam-worthy) when guests join the fun of dressing up according to the prescribed party outfit. Equally significant to the merriment, following the dress code is a social manner.
What if this year, the invitation states “Safari Night”, “Christmas in the Wild”, or “African Christmas”? Here is a three-look style guide to mingle!
SAFARI LOOK 1
Wear the Palette|The SM Lanang Premier “Christmas Wonders in the Wild” Christmas Tree Lighting 2019
The colors in the safari style palette are easy to mix and match. These colors exude both manliness and the flora and fauna of the wilderness. Before going to shops just to buy a new piece for the party, skim through your closet first. You might already own one or even all the pieces with the safari colors that you can work on in achieving a fitting look for the party.
ABOUT THE LOOK: This is a Preppy Metro-Casual outfit. A smart casual look consists of a golden brown knitted polo and a green chino with light brown plaid pattern. Plaid suggests both the preppy and yuletide vibe. Knit is an opportune fabric for the Christmas breeze. Complete the look with a black tasseled leather loafer.
You are going to a party to mingle, right? Then start “mingling” by dressing up with such reason.
Wear the Persona | The Davao Bloggers Society “Let’s Get Wild” Safari Night Christmas Party 2018
True to all other dress codes, identify a celebrity or influencer, a movie/ TV series character who looks good at wearing it. Or an occupation who is associated to the theme. Identify and wear not just the outfit but as well as the persona. Treat your look as a costume and strut it with the associated attitude.
ABOUT THE LOOK : This is a “Lux Tent Safari Dinner” attire. A semi-formal safari dinner look inspired from both a hunter and an affluent safari tourist. The all-white monochrome of the pair is accessorized with safari-colored scarf and a safari hat with plaid pattern. Fabric for the undershirt and polo is light cotton while the pants’ is made out from linen. Finish the look with a brown tasseled leather loafer and a just-came-from-the-safari-trip vibe of satisfaction.
Equally significant to the merriment, following the dress code is a social manner.
SAFARI LOOK 3
Wear the Print | The Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao “Bold and Bright Holidays” Christmas Tree Lighting 2019
Prints (and patterns) are loud details to show how good are you at following the prescribed party attire. There are prints which are synonymous to the motif. These can be considered as safe, easy and predictable choices. Just be that wearer who gives an extraordinary bearing to such prints. Stand out as you own it “not” the way everyone wearing the same print is doing.
ABOUT THE LOOK : Here is a “Classique Leopard” garb. A cocktail night look with the classic animal print long sleeve. The shirt is purposely unbuttoned for a seductive play of the print. The pair is a complementing light brown pants with a high waist cut for a more dapper stand. Climax the ensemble with a well-polished black tassel loafer.
The 15-foot Christmas tree of Waterfront Davao is festooned with over 50 Moroccan lamps like these!
Explore also other animal prints like cheetah, snow leopard, jaguar, zebra, tiger, clouded leopard, margay, ocelot, spotted hyena, striped hyena, African wild dog, constrictor snake, giraffe or monkey.
There are ways to pull off a “de rigueur“ outfit without spending much. Know the elements of the motif. These are the palettes, prints and persons associated to the theme. Be creative. Strut your look as it is your own style. Ultimately, enjoy being a true merrymaker with a substance and social manner as you party!
You are going to a party to mingle, right? Then start “mingling” by dressing up with such reason. And remember, Christmas socials should get wilder every year. Merry Christmas!
The syllabus of the Selling profession warrants more than just the art (and science) of closing deals. It includes elective subjects which are helpful for both before and after signing the purchase contract.
Learning about these subjects does not require admission to any university though. You can use some of the 7% of your income which you allotted for continuous education, to own books which help you earn more commissions. Get more value of such budget when you shop 50% – 90% cheaper books at the biggest book sale in the world.
The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale specializes in providing the widest selection of books at the lowest possible prices. The Sale offers brand new English books at 50% – 90% off recommended retail price, with the primary aim to instill reading habits by providing readers access to affordable quality books.
With over 150,000 people in attendance last year, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is coming back to Davao:
21 November – 2 December 2019 | 24 hours Open | Admission is FREE | Enderun Tent, Azuela Cove, Lanang | Books at 50% – 90% OFF
The Sale has toured across cities in Malaysia and abroad to South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Myanmar, Pakistan, and the Philippines, with no plans to stop spreading the love of reading and changing the world one book at a time.
Here are 5 types of books you can own cheaper aside from Sales and Marketing Books, when the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale visits your sales territory:
*Sales and Marketing books are found at the “Businesses and Economics” section of the Non-Fiction corner inside the venue.
1. CRIME NOVELS. When you sell, you convince the prospect, right? How about reading how a killer “convinces” everybody else that he is innocent?
2. FINANCE.The acme of a successful Closer is being the CEO of their own company. That journey mandates mastery in handling money and resources. This subject also helps you when facilitating your prospect’s buying decision.
3. SELF-HELP/ MOTIVATIONAL. Closers are self-starters who love instructions. Own books that you can revisit when a crisis haunts. Hoard these genres.
4. PSYCHOLOGY. Buying is a tricky human behavior. It is powerful when you know how to dissect a prospect, neurons by neurons from the moment you meet them to the moment of their final decision. And at rare but real instances, when they change their mind post-sales.
5. LEGAL/ HISTORY. Every purchase requires documentation. Legal terminologies, phraseologies and exemplary cases of law interpretation are not harmful to be knowledgeable at.
Knowing enough about subjects relevant to the Selling profession enhances confidence. This then makes your prospect confident to own a purchase with you. Books are your confidence pills. And just a reminder, never ever judge any book by its price.
With over 150,000 people in attendance last year, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is coming back to Davao:

We are in a highly data-interacting life. Level up!
The corporate operations from the entire enterprise level down to the individual personnel, relentlessly gather, create new, bank and recover data. In the sales team for example, the account man gathers the prospect’s contact information, stores the contact data whether or not an offer is purchased or adds an entry to the database of owners when a purchase is made. Then, revisits these data for performance evaluation and after sales needs.
Office desktops and company-issued or personally-bought laptops and USBs have their respective storage limitations. Online storage options have their own connectivity requirements. As a matter of fact, during the past half of the year, our office desktop was reformatted three times already due to limited storage capacity. These episodes have massively clogged the operations. The staff from the corporate information technology group advised us to delete some data. But those data are all significant.
Tangent from data pertinent to work, the photos and videos for the exciting online life on social media, saved-for-later watchlist, playlist, games and ebooks, share the storage space. These are of equal values because these neutralize us for sanity. These data are significant. These data, your digitized work files and personal contents warrant you to level-up how they are being handled in this highly data-interacting life.

Whether or not you have that “ideal” relationship with your father, it is undeniable that we are greatly influenced with their qualities. As an idiom stresses, like father, like son.
For almost a decade in Selling, I was able to capitalize these three traits which resemble that of Dad’s. These made me thrive gracefully in the Selling industry.
Dad is an advocate that alcohol is a social lubricant.
In my father’s words, “Dili gd nimo matag-na ang kaugmaun sa isa ka tawo”. I find this trait very useful in prospecting, banking leads and in creating business linkages. My father has always proved to me that letting a person feel important does not need any condition. I never saw my dad change his social treatment when talking to someone, may that be a friend from college who is now well-paid in his job or an acquaintance from the neighborhood he believes who is going to be big in time.
I saw him cry. I heard him say sorry. I witnessed him reprimanded by Mom of being rowdy when drunk. I even beheld him off-guarded when a friend proved his argument as weak during a boozing session. These all made him appear tough as a father to me. These made me respect him even more. His being human. His being vulnerable, transgressing both the social machismo and the omnipotent-omniscient father image.
This trait helps me a lot during the entire Selling process. That it is ok to let the prospect see how you get disappointed and hurt. That it is ok to be sorry. That it is alright to be wrong (to recognize what is the correct) and that does not make you less of a respectable and competent professional. Be “You” on the sales table. Be more of a Sales Human than a Salesman.
Telling stories made me close a lot of accounts.
Know a Lot of Anecdotes
Dad never runs out of real stories. This has influenced me so much that I even use his anecdotes in every pre-pitch talk. It always feels that those stories are mine that it always warms up my prospect everytime. Humans just love being hooked in a storyline. This made me realize how persuasive one can become when people crave for the next part of your narration. Telling stories made me close a lot of accounts.
Just if you are asking, my father is not a salesman. Dad is a seafarer. A thoughtful father who catches up from the 9 long months of being away from us, every time he is signed-off from his nautical contract. Happy Father’s Day also to your dad, may you be so like him or just a little bit.
