Call To Purpose

I was 12 years old and about to graduate from elementary school when I became aware of the world around me and wanted to make a bigger impact in the world. Being the youngest in the family without responsibilities yet, up until then, everything was just child's play for me. The instant I learned that I was a medalist was the same moment I learned to take responsibility for my future - to own the outcome of my actions. That was a transformational moment for me. It came at the right time as I was about to enter high school the following year.


Although I excelled in a Catholic girls' high school, it was painfully clear I was different from most girls. I've always known that I was gay - a transgender male. Yet, my upbringing, school, and religion said my homosexuality was wrong. This was always a source of tension and point of oppression for me. I suppressed my homosexuality and conformed to societal norms. Entrepreneurial since Grade 4, yet I became an employee at my parents' advice. While rising the corporate ladder, I was dabbling in real estate and side business. I settled for mediocrity and I felt I didn't fully belong.

Moment of Change

The game-changer for me happened in September 2014, after my third secret same-sex relationship ended and I went through my 46th birthday the previous month all alone. I felt so down, miserable, and utterly lonely for over a month, realizing that I was well into mid-life, yet, still living this big lie and the mediocrity that I settled for. I wanted to be free of the shackles and limiting beliefs I was trapped in so I can be the best I can possibly be. I only have one life to live and half of it is already gone. I vowed to live the rest of my life on my own terms and make it the best of my life!

...that will outlast and outlive me on this Planet Earth


I first opened up to my niece about my homosexuality on the night I decided enough was enough. She was very accepting and my revelation felt so liberating! It led to more transformation - my hair cut, men's shoes, then formal wear - all unmistakably masculine. I gradually grew more comfortable shopping for clothes at the men's section, and to be confident about showing my real self to the world even during corporate events. I learned to live life not needing anybody's approval or to conform to what society finds acceptable. In June 2015, I opened up about my homosexuality to my closest friend at work, who was very accepting and encouraged me to be my real self always.

Gaining Skills

I focused on my personal development and attended trainings locally and abroad - Robert Kiyosaki Live in Manila in 2015, Peng Joon's Internet Income Intensive, T. Harv Eker's Millionaire Mind Intensive, and Paul O'Mahony's Online Business Mastery in 2016. I became a T. Harv Eker certified trainer and completed his Quantum Leap program in 2017. I learned new skills and reinvented myself. In July 2016, while still working in Metro Manila, I joined 3 business partners and opened up a bakery/cafe/resto in Bohol, where my family is deeply-rooted. I left my corporate cubicle in March 2017 and moved to Bohol.

Return To Purpose

In 2017, I became a Consultant for the Local Government Unit of Loon, Bohol. In 2018, I wrote the lyrics for its tourism jingle, co-founded 2 home-based startup t-shirt businesses, my tourism project went viral in social and mainstream media and got featured on TV twice! I guided our town to win multiple awards for its digital initiatives from 2017 to 2020. In 2018, I launched my eBook and website in January, my audiobook in February, was a speaker in the Cashflow 101 Workshop in March, certified for Digital Marketing in July, and launched Smart Money 101 in October. I became the Financial Literacy Trainer of the Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) in February 2020.
