It is during these times that we need a friend who understands us, who’s been there and done that, who can offer us much needed hope and advice to face the challenges we are facing.
In this book, we find that friend. Techie is the friend we all need. Told through her sister Rose’s eyes, Techie shares the lessons she’s learned on how to overcome the struggles you are now facing.
She has hit rock bottom and rose up from the ashes victorious — turning around a bankrupt company into a thriving business in a male-dominated industry; going through a marriage breakdown yet still remaining friends with her ex- while raising responsible children; getting kicked out of primary school and ending up graduating on top of her class; gaining the American dream and giving it all up to become an entrepreneur and help her motherland.
We have a lot to learn from Techie. Fortunately, Rose Cabrera wrote it all down for us in her first book, "An Entrepreneurial Wonder Woman."
Read this book and discover that you, too, can overcome your challenges and live a life of purpose and significance wherever you are right now and whatever you’re going through.
There is hope. Listen to Techie.
The book, “An Entrepreneurial Wonder Woman” is an engaging, inspiring, and motivational biography of a much needed Asian role model in these trying times. The author provides an insightful and privileged look into her sister’s inspiring life.
Well known all over the world for being great nurses because of their caring nature, Filipinas rarely get recognized for their uniquely Filipino business acumen that mesh business with their nurturing nature. In this book, you will meet Techie (pronounced as Te-chee), an extraordinary Filipina who beat the odds in the Goliath male-dominated Philippine logistics industry, defied traditional norms of womanhood in a conservative Catholic country, led a successful career that brought her to America, all expenses paid, to live the American Dream, only to give it up to be an entrepreneur, and all these after growing up in a big family of 12 and getting “kicked out” of school.
Her story is engagingly related by her youngest sister through interwoven, light and heavy, real life stories that happened in Los Angeles, the Philippines, and Cambodia. You will see how Techie built a successful business without compromising her values in a life of significance.
Whoever you are and wherever you are, you will gain helpful insights on the universal values touched upon by Techie’s story:
- how to move on after serious setbacks
- how to handle a marriage break up
- how to raise responsible children
- how to keep your employees loyal and motivated
- how your hard earned money is put to better use if shared with loved ones
- how to deal with losing your business partner and best friend
- how it is better to love than to be right
- how to give up a seemingly attractive opportunity (like the American Dream) without feeling like a loser
- how wonderful it is to help your country of birth
- and even how to handle loans to friends and relatives that are never repaid!
Uncover your own gem and the gem in others as you pursue your life purpose and live a life of significance.
