Eskapo! Do you remember that iconic 1990’s Chito Rono movie featuring Richard Gomez as Serge Osmena and Christopher de Leon as Geny Lopez? Well, if you are my age, you may remember it.
Set in the 1970’s, it’s the story of how two brave young men bravely escaped a prison camp during the Marcos regime and lived to tell about it. As we all know, Serge Osmena eventually became a senator while the late Geny Lopez became the partiarch of ABS-CBN.
Although we are very far from the Martial Law days, majority of Filipinos are still prisoners. Not political prisoners but cubicle prisoners.
Many still belong to the “rat race”, a vicious cycle in which one must continue to work at a “job” tirelessly to put food on the table.
Jon has been teaching thousands of Filipinos through his blog and courses about how to escape your day job to have a freedom business.
In fact, I am a graduate of his and Fitz Villafuerte’s – Blog Academy Philippines – an online course I attended that enabled me to build Freelance Blend.
In this episode, Jon will share with us his journey, how he started as an online entrepreneur while living abroad. Also, he will talk about his new online course – Internet Business Master Class (download this free ebook: “How To Start A Simple Internet Business Selling e-Books” or watch this video to learn more.) which will teach you how to escape your day job through an ebook business.
