You wanna know what’s buck? 🤯
Intentional rest lol. No but for real. As artists and dancers and creatives, we give OUR ALL to our craft. Our heart, spleen, ribs, lungs, and sometimes... we forget to give it back to ourselves.
But I learned a little secret that I’ve added to my arsenal of #FortressMentality. Step back and:
💆🏼♀️ Practice self care.
💍 Nurture thy marriage.
❤️ Quality time with friends and family.
♾ Align values back to purpose
🔑 Get back to the “why” and not the “what”
🔋 Check myself before I wreck myself
Because let’s face it, none of us have our shit together at any given time and if you do... it’s time to level up 😂
I’ve recharged after last month’s craziness and I have some projects coming up that has to do with empowering young ladies through Krump and supporting the Filipino-Canadian community.
Take this journey with me? 🌹
Thanks to @caringcup for sharing this picture during the 2019 Giving Journal launch event in SOS Children's Village in Alabang. It is one of the most challenging Caring Cup events I have attended but it's okay because the people from @woven.ph were really helpful and patient in teaching us how to weave. I can also see how interested the children were during the event. I am amazed how they grew up as good children especially to their elders. 💙❤️💙
What motivates us daily are the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. My bro @mtyaty and I had the opportunity to fly to the Philippines to work with and support one of the most inspiring young Filipina entrepreneurs. Her story has been turned into a movie and has captivated the hearts of millions worldwide.
@hershey_official was only 12 years old when she first faced death. Her father was murdered by her uncle, leaving her to co-parent her 7 siblings in extreme poverty in Iloilo, Philippines. Taking desperate measures, she dropped out of school and turned to notorious street gangs and petty theft just to put food on the table. She was arrested up to 6 times per month.
Today, at 25, she’s proudly founded multiple international clothing brands (rvmp.com.ph), invested and consulted a few dozen businesses worldwide and one of the most in-demand and youngest inspirational speakers. Her creative services and fashion products are sold globally in over 15 countries and she is continuously nominated for numerous Entrepreneurship awards.
From being homeless to creating a business empire that ranges from fashion to tech, she capitalized on her marketing expertise but also her grit to make things happen – she has punctuated her partnerships and resources with the world’s influential entrepreneurs that exist today and is now on the path to teaching others do the same through her mentorship programs.
It was a honour and pleasure spending time with her in the Philippines, talking business and planning for the future!
Her story was so powerful we had to create 2 episodes. Tune in to this week’s MMS podcast episodes 004 & 005 as we introduce our first guest/mentor/friend and highly influential entrepreneur Hershey Hilado as we learn about her untold hardships on her journey.

I’m always posting some funny shit or something positive and to be honest... I do it for you guys, but I do it mostly for myself. I’m human and as much as you guys think I’m probably this happy person, it’s not always unicorns and rainbows. Life is a struggle, and I do my best to learn from mistakes cause I don’t really have any other choice. I will not let negative thoughts or feelings consume me. I see this picture and I see genuine happiness. Doing what I love. Even though I’m tired and I have my moments where I really don’t feel inspired, I’ll always bounce back. I’ll never give up on this. Keep pushing. It’s ok to have off days, what’s important is you take care of your mental health first. It’s the only way to get back on your grind.
