Reseller's Corner: Jumpstart your Business!

Finding your Business and Gifts: From the Start (Part 7)
by Patricia Alejandro Paterno

I can say that Papemelroti is an expression of who we are individually and as a family.  Weíre all different but we have common values and ideals - and thatís the advantage of being a family.  One of the underlying principles for a business to succeed, for a Filipino brand to succeed, is it should have a personality, it should stand out and have its own unique identity. 

How do you do that? By knowing that being in business is not just about making money but it is more an expression of yourself - what you believe in, what you want to share with others, what you are, your values and your ideas.  Ideally it should express the best of you.  For us, our business reflects our commitment to God, family, home, country, caring for the environment, our respect for craftsmanship and appreciation of traditions.

Iíve said several things about what I believe makes for success for a family business.  But I know the most important is to make sure God is a working partner in the business.  From the start, even before we had a business, my mom prayed to God to have a business.  We believe the key to a successful business, indeed a successful life, is to have God as a partner in everything you do.  In Psalm 127:1 it says: Unless the Lord builds the house, he labours in vain who build it.

And so we may dream, make plans and work hard.  However we should be sure that what we do is in line with Godís intents and purposes for our life.  For each one of you, for each one of your businesses, God has a dream, God has a plan.  And it is really exciting to find out what that is, to work with God and make it come true.

Food for Thought: What do you think is God's dream for you and your business?
