Mr. Oliveros answered, “All government agencies are accountable for businesses that are in need of assistance, however most of the Filipinos are reprimanding and demanding. Sometimes we don’t have to depend on them only; we also have to do our part.”

He discussed the preliminary Alphabet of Business that answered the question, “Why create a business?”.At first, he showed a short video clip entitled, “Brilliant Compensation,” where it says that whenever the young population grows; the more market expands and demand rises.Mr. De Oro discussed the basic Alphabet of Business by emphasizing the attitude where there was no coincident that if you add the equivalents of the alphabet in the word “attitude” is equal to 100. It only means that attitude is quite very important for it made us who we are.“To be able to have a good learning, you need to have a good listening attitude, because if you listen, you’ll have knowledge, and knowledge is what we learn.” Mr. De Oro advised.Second is belief, for in dreaming or setting goals in life, you need to believe first. He showed an example of a two building where one of it has a small foundation while the other one has a big foundation. He said that, “the shorter the foundation, the weak it is because it is not deeply rooted and cannot survived an earthquake.”Third is commitment. There are three Commitment principles; first, I’ll try; second, I’ll do my best; and third, I’ll do whatever it takes. Fourth is discouragement.

But remember, life is not about what you achieve, it’s about the lives of the people you touch”.
