Michelle GUINTO ENTREPRENEUR
53 Michelle Guinto’s journey in the business world is as colourful, as her dreams. Once a factory worker and a sari-sari store owner, she decided to leave for Dubai to work for her family. Her jobs were storied: a telephone operator, a caterer, a receptionist, a tourist clerk, a freelancer, and finally started her own small commercial brokerage company. That company has steadily grown in the last couple of years to also include a business in Dubai. “In August 2016, I was able to secure a five year contract signed deal between CMG Global Cargo Inc Philippines and Allied Pickfords Singapore with an estimated additional revenue of around 5 Million USD covering around 5,00010,000 shipments of Import & Export of Household Goods, among others,” she says. Along the way, Michelle has learned some valuable lessons. “Do not grab all the opportunities knocking on your door. Learn to do due diligence, evaluate the risk and stay focused. Give time for yourself, family, socialize with friends and always talk to God for He will never forsake you nor leave you.”
When greatness comes to the fore, it brings the rest of us with it.
