My key takeaways? Flyers. Lots of flyers. Kidding.
Dropped by the Franchise and Business Expo held last Oct 14 to 16 at the World Trade Center with the charitable Ilocana and couple of friends. Attended a similar one 3 years ago (has it been 3 years?!?). The event, just like the previous one, was organized by Association of Filipino Franchisers Inc (AFFI).
Despite the rainy weather, I would say the event was well attended, with many participating businesses open for franchising and many Pinoys wanting to have their own business, or just looking around, testing the waters. Many Filipinos want to be their own bosses. Filipinos are generally entrepreneurial. Here are some key takeaways and realizations.
