I woke up today filled with GRATITUDE and APPRECIATION for all that I have in my life… When I woke up this morning, I prayed for a “birthday message”. Every year, I do major introspection […]

Living A Secret Life of Quiet Desperation…

Henry David Thoreau, in his book Walden, said this very famous quote: “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” As entrepreneurs, I know that most of us have moments to ourselves, when the world is not watching, when we go through our own quiet […]

By Staying Small… Who Are You Shortchanging?

I took our 10-year old son Garrett to Chinatown, Los Angeles this weekend.   Garrett, “The Martial Arts Kid”,  loves going there on a rather consistent basis as he is really committed to collecting martial arts memorabilia as he is about to make video reviews of them and share on his own blog.  My beloved Mentor […]

You Are Worthy of Belonging…

This morning, I received an email from my good friend Amy Schuber and it was a TED Video by a lady named Brene Brown.  I listened to her video and it validated even more why I have always been an advocate of Relationship Marketing – marketing that encourages COMPASSION, COURAGE and ultimately CONNECTION. I resonated […]

Inspiration From A Homeless Man

A couple of days ago, I felt so harried as I ran errands and diligently crossed out my “To-Do” LIst. In between errands, I was able to sneak in an hour of pampering with eyebrow threading and mini-facial. From the spa, I went to do some light grocery shopping at Pavillions. Funny how I went […]

I Am My Father’s Daughter… My Loving Tribute

March 19, 2012… I spent all day in bed… mourning the passing of my beloved father, Amado Yambao, Jr.  I debated whether to fly to Manila, Philippines or stay here and spend time to honor a man who has helped shape who I am today.  I chose the latter. Yesterday, came home from a very […]

Dreams Come True… When You Have One!

Have you ever had a dream that is so clear and so vivid that you just know that no matter how long it takes, that dream is bound to come true? I have many dreams and I’ll let you in on a secret – before I go to bed, I live one of my dreams […]

Clarity Begins With Your Core Message

  I just got back from Passion2Profit – a 2-day live event my by beloved mentor, Joel Bauer.  As always, the quality of people in attendance was very impressive.  The “Who’s Who” of major industries were represented there and I had the pleasure to meet most of them! I also had the opportunity to speak […]

How I Went From Newbie To Expert

Three years ago, I wouldn’t even dream of writing a blog post with this title.  I was an absolute online marketing newbie and yes, I was barely learning how to Cut and Paste! Today, I came home from my son’s 10th birthday lunch, I was pleasantly surprised with an email from a community I am […]

Why Do You – Or Don’t You – Blog?

This weekend, it was so nice to catch up with friends either bumping into them while shopping at the mall or at holiday parties and neighborhood mixers.  Of course with the usual, “What are you up to these days?” sort of question, I couldn’t help but notice that there are still a lot of business […]

My Aunt Emilia… My Heroine

Three weeks ago, we received news that my Mom’s older sister, my dearest Aunt Emilia (Tiya Milya to us nieces and nephews) came down with pneumonia.  At 91 years old, she truly was spunky and energetic despite the fact that she literally stopped eating for weeks on and the doctor just gave her a few […]

Grateful for Gratitude

The table is set, turkey is in the oven,  Emma’s “World Famous” stuffing ingredients are chopped up, Cranberry Orange Relish is simmering, and everything is a go with my Baked Yam, Green Bean Casserole, Creamed Corn and bottles of wine and champagne is chilling nicely. It’s my 22nd Thanksgiving in the US… Funny, there were […]

Connection Through ESP vs. USP

If you’re an entrepreneur, you are probably know your USP – UNIQUE SELLING PROPOSITION Why is a USP important?  It’s because it’s where it all starts.  It’s your first point of response when someone asks you “What do you do?”  It’s essentially your “elevator pitch”. Simply put, it’s what separates you from the rest of […]

The Gold Is There All Along…

I had a great client session this morning… I am so proud of my client who’s moving forward so rapidly and is so gung-ho and passionate about the clarity of the direction her branding and her business is going. She said to me: “Emma… I am doing this and that and I am becoming more […]

The Power To Create Your Life… NOW

In 2001, my husband and I attended our very first live 2-day Personal Development seminar at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas and it was called “Passion, Profit and Power” by a highly celebrated Speaker and Trainer.  What made this a milestone event was the fact that this was the first time we actually paid thousands […]

Make 9/11 Count For Something

At 5:30 am on September 11, 2001, I was in a very deep sleep when our home phone rang. It was my husband’s friend, Tim calling us looking for Gary, hoping that he hasn’t left for work just yet. I remember feeling exceptionally tired that morning… Perhaps it’s because at that time, I was 5 […]

My Birthday Wish… Is About YOU!

I am about to celebrate my “21st” birthday – (again)  in a few days and the days leading to my birthday is filled with highs and lows… Amazing how it has been a year since we’ve moved out of our home and moved into the new… I remember last year, I was unpacking our moving […]

Celebrating… The Fearless Coach

Yesterday, as I contemplated on the many Mentors who have guided and continue to guide me in my path to master my specialized skills, I realized that one of my passions is to create “Success Stories“.  There is no greater joy than for me to witness the metamorphosis of someone I absolutely believe in, care […]

Lessons From A Chinese Bamboo Tree…

As I sit here in bed enjoying a peaceful sunrise from my bedroom window (after supervising a sleep over last night),  I reviewed past entries from my journal and came across a time when I wrote about the Lessons from a Chinese Bamboo Tree… I remember about 3 years ago, as I wondered why things […]

How to Connect With V.I.Ps on Facebook

I have been on Facebook for a little over two years now and I have to say, I have seen most strategies people try to pull off when they are connecting online. Sure, when you’re in a platform as vast and as huge as Facebook, you are bound to meet all kinds of people from […]

Can You Really Become the Bank?

About 2 years ago, I met my friends Jorge Bueno and MaryAnne Morcos.  They were introduced to me by a friend I absolutely trust, Jerry Chen and a year later, we have become really great friends and peers and they even invited my husband and I at the recent Grammy Awards Ceremony as their special […]

Do You Really Need to Be Liked?

Over the weekend, my husband and I sat quietly watching Denzel Washington’s movie, “Unstoppable” through Netflix.   There was a scene there where there was this massive unmanned runaway train and Denzel was going to risk his life to stop the train and save the town from all the toxic cargo it had.  The owner of […]

Creativity… The Answer to Frustration

Yesterday I spent half a day filming and editing 15 short videos.  Ten of those videos are for my new “How To Use Relational Marketing To Grow Your Business” video training give away to my subscribers.  It’s actually a very good video series and I could easily charge for them but I really like to […]

Pavlov’s Theory and Accountability

My husband and I love listening to this song entitled “Brian Wilson” by a group called Barenaked Ladies. A section of the lyrics got my attention: “It’s a matter of instinct, it’s a matter of conditioning, It’s a matter of fact. You can call me Pavlov’s dog Ring a bell and I’ll salivate- how’d you […]

HOPE Is A Strategy, Only When…

Here in beautiful Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, truly savoring the beauty of this great nation.  As I immerse myself in the omnipotence of the moment, I am overcome with joy and gratitude that I was given the opportunity to come here and create a magnificent life. I wish you and your families a […]

Your Best Summer Ever!

Happy Summer! I trust you are enjoying this amazing time of the year with family and friends! I don’t know about you but summer has always been a time when I am tempted to slow down, kick back and cut back on my productivity.  However, every time I do this, I find myself playing struggling […]

Happy “Dada” Gary Day, 2011!

I awoke at 1:30 am today and created this photo slideshow for “Dada” Gary… Looking back at the snapshot of our past two years, this truly has captured the profound father and son relationship he and Garrett have. I told him that anytime he’s feeling… Overwhelm Disappointed Doubtful Sad Frustrated Uncertain And whatever “icky” feeling […]

Cleansing Tears… Refining… Refreshing

Whew what a week it was!  So many amazing breakthroughs happening here!  So much excitement yet with much excitement also comes ambivalence about the proverbial “unknown” and stepping things up a notch, up leveling ones game and braving through fears and frustrations. Today, I found myself shedding “Cleansing Tears…” No, they are not tears of […]

Getting Personal… My Perfect Day

My ideal day starts off really early at dawn when the birds are slowly waking up, when my family is still asleep, the morning is very peaceful and the sun is not up just yet. I start my morning in fervent and intense prayer – prayers of gratitude, adoration, intercession and yes, some supplication.  I […]
