    This is how progress in any society is done… by starting your own
    business.

    Then as the market matures and gets saturated with thousands fighting for
    the reducing pie share, someone will evolve with a niche to win the
    saturated market and rise above the rest. Everyone follows and repeats the
    process until its too saturated again and then, once again, a few will
    evolve and rise above the rest.

    So, the process repeats and evolves until it becomes a part of the
    society’s thinking. As the population gets really evolved, people out
    thinking one another is bound to create a highly evolved product and that
    soon becomes the most sought after product in the world.

    Most industrialized countries evolved this way. South Korea’s phones are
    super evolved obviously, China’s manufacturing system are highly evolved
    and unmatchable in any part of the world, USA comes out with new niche all
    the time like Facebook, Youtube, Google, etc.. And USA’s movies are
    undoubtedly highly evolved and seen all over the world that rake in
    billions of dollars per movie back into the country. Japan’s high end
    technology are unmatchable by any society in the world. Germany’s luxury
    cars are a niche by this country only and sought after by any person in the
    world. Italy’s supercars are 2nd to none of any country. The USA, Japan,
    South Korea, etc.. are competing fiercely in the automobile market.

    Needless to say, all this highly evolved products from these countries make
    billions of dollars for their home country and creates jobs and indirectly
    sustains families of millions from the bottom ground employees up to the
    executive upstairs and all the way to the corporate heads.

    Then, here’s where the Philippines play in this world game… Dried
    mangoes? Banana chips? Domestic helper?

    That’s why Philippines need to stop sending out its population and start
    making market within and evolve and arise and win the global game. That
    dried mangoes and banana chips can evolve into unthinkable products.

    Besides , is there any wealthy country that has arised from sending out its
    population to wipe its bosses’ kid’s cracks?

  25. usacyrano says:

    Thanks for posting such a positive story. I’m an American married to a
    filipina from Negros and I’ve heard many stories of OFW coming home broke
    because the salary went to the family and no one saved anything. Many have
    to work past retirement or come home to nothing. Glad to see a success
    story. Maybe we’ll stay next time we’re in Phil. Peace!
