President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo formally launched the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship-Go Negosyo’s third book focusing on women entrepreneurship at the National Bookstore in Rockwell, Makati City, Feb. 26, 2009. I am honored and humbled to be in Joey Conception's Gonegosyo book called- 55 Inspiring Stories of Women Entrepreneurs.

The book got prominent display at the National bookstore
at the Power Plant Mall at Rockwell. It became the #1 Best Selling
book in the non-fiction category that year!
The book was launched at National
Bookstore at Rockwell Power Plant
Mall, in Makati, Feb. 26th, 2009.
President Gloria Macapal Arroyo graced the event and signed all of our books.

So many people behind any success I had.  In the book I mentioned my friend as one of my mentors, Dennis Patterson. He taught me how to make websites and use photoshop. He literally forced them upon me, because he wanted me to be able to do something with my photos and experiences. He gave me two programs, Photoshop and Net Objects Fusion, which was a WTWYG program, or basically what you see is what you get, website making programs. Without him, I wouldn't have been able to build this business with Dave.  I can't forget, and did mention in the book, my first cousin Joel Limjoco Pastor who was instrumental in putting up my first websites. He had his own server, and said, "Let me know what website you want and I will host your files.". He hosted our family site www.limjoco.net and all other sites I decided to make up along the way. I had no idea what it took to  have your own web server. Joel,  maybe it was nothing to you, but you allowed me to explore this new entire adventure on the internet! I will never forget you and I will always be so grateful. We now have our own dedicated server for our websites, but Joel make it all happen for me.

Of course for our business, husband Dave Dewbre, was the perfect, and equal partner.  It was our combined skills and talents that amalgamated into the perfect fusion to sustain the business.  I must give credit to our most excellent team of web designers, warehouse staff and tech support people for a job well done in keeping the daily chores going smoothly and the corporation growing
annually. It's been an interesting ride.

I didn't have an easy time learning all of this web stuff. I had to force myself most of the time. But perseverance has paid off. Now blogging is my passion.
