Pursuing Your Passion and Defining Your Personal Brand

So hey! It’s the middle of the year already! Can you believe it?

Let’s all take a moment to pause and just breathe…

*deep breaths in and out*

So for the past month, I’ve been busy with some workshops and a couple of projects, and it has been a wonderful experience! Thank you Lianne ( for capturing these moments.

My firstĀ ever speaking engagement was for the Boss Bellas workshop by Manila Workshops, where I got to talk about my life as a working mom and also about branding your business. I never really thought about it, but I guess sharing information is also a passion of mine, and might as well be my purpose.

I enjoyed the fulfillment it brought me, that I decided – more like a spur of the moment decision – to be a sponsor for the #GetBlisstified3 workshop too. I wasn’t physically present, but I sent the participants some inspo cards, and Martine also talked about my branding, along with the rest of the sponsors.

(By the way, you can also get your inspo cards when you sign up for the Passion+Purpose mailing list)

SoĀ I’d like to share a couple of takeaways and insider information from those workshops, mainly to talk about Pursuing Passions and Defining your Personal Brand.


How Get Blisstified Got Me Started

Sometimes you just need to be with the right people at the right time.

They say when you’re somewhere you need to be or you’re destined to do something, chances are the Universe will conspire to put you in that place and time or give you the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.

That’s exactly what happened when I joined the Get Blisstified workshop.

Hi there! I’m glad you found me here! Really, I’m excited you dropped by….

You see, I’m kind of turning over a new leaf. After years of accepting small graphic design projects here and there just as a sideline, I’ve finally decided to make my graphic design work into a full time passion project and creative pursuit!

So please, stay a while, and browse through my site. It’s still a work in progress, but I’m very proud of it so far!

A little backstory…


I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture and then worked for a design firm for 4 years. Until I decided to become a full time mom to my first born child. I tried working from home, to keep me busy whilst helping with our expenses. I tried entrepreneurship, virtual assistance, and blogging. But none of those seemed sustainable enough, becauseĀ my real passion rooted in the Arts. (more…)
