Why pursuing the company vision is the great and profitable way to go

What:  ABE on the importance of the company vision statement


1.  To have shared vision among the employees, staff and officers; and to increase the number of believers and BIDDA

2.  To ensure the future growth and profitability of the group

3.  To make sure that every body understands the priority, the right thing to do so that wrong moves are avoided.


1.  Many projects:  crematorium are in limbo, recruitment at Chapel Memorial Services do not happen, the Interment Services are neglected, (the funds are not processed at once, and inefficiency on this portion of the business remain.  Repairs of the equipment for the memorial services are unattended to 

2. Not to be outdone in this pursuit are two leading memorial parks aggressively investing huge sums for memorial park jv and /or purchase;  on the other hand SPLP are making it great.

3.  The future of memorialization as foreseen by this post is in the services:   cremation, memorial services (funeral and interment) Thus these three components are in its vision for the next five years:   cremation, chapel services, and columbarium

4.  Many just  pay lip service to the vision statement

     Why funeral services:

Image result for security guard turning off buyers

This morning I biked to a auto car display in the nearby town because I wanted, to own despite its steep and stiff price to acquire their SBU (no stock not even a brochure)  I wanted to see desperately if they have stock in display.  I was lured into buying one after riding in such a unit in the Visayas

However this party was turned off that I was not allowed by their SG  to park the bike nearby where it is visible. (as per order daw)  I would not like to lose a P100,000 bike. I lost the chance to talk to a marketing professional.  I would like to buy but not to shabbily treated.  The purchase could be worth 5 million

The company spends fortune on their displays, car rallies, brochures, launches only to be stymied by a lousy order that rubs the prospect the wrong way.   Of course they would not miss one lost sale... There are competitors and cars for sale with more bang for the bucks

The importance of goal setting and thinking of the future

Could we go back in time?

Many of us will scoff at goal setting or the thought become things.  . But this video at through the wormhole featuring Morgan Freeman says that time is a continuum and what happens now may be pulled by the future or the picture of the future.

There was an experiment about pigeons who will get out of the maze with or without hats on.  Nothing in the experiment in the input could explain the out come except the expectation of what would happen.

Is the present thus not affected by history but what would happen in the future?   Does this give credence

Do you agree?

If you have not planned nor set your goals, then it is time.

This Doctor Partner is an entrepreneur par excellence

                     The city hall site was donated by their family
                         to the city

I had a business trip with a partner for a real estate project and because of the long wait and the long conversation, I got to know more of the business sense of our JV partner in a real estate project.  We met for more than a decade with each meeting not lasting for more than an hour over breakfast at the Ortigas CBD.

These are his business ideas, some of which he has implemented.

1.  ATM machine in his home town.  He partnered with his classmate who owns a network and is duly licensed by BSP and funded by World Bank.  He services the employees of Decs and other government agencies.  The normal fee is Php 12/transaction plus a convenience fee of P40 to 60 which is justified since the travel to and from the city costs twice that much.  He has hefty income from this lone ATM machine (the machine is Diebold)   He has standby Genset to give power to the ATM machine

2.   Water refilling station.  It was born out of his desire to provide medicines for his parents.  It costs him P36,000  a month to provide meds for his parents.   Now he has a water refilling station which nets him P50,000 a month and on top of that he provides jobs to 3 staff.

3.  Investment in a memorial park

4.  Investment in two pharmas whose revenues run into hundreds of millions:   one a suture company, and the other provides staining agent for Cat Scan machine

Other interest:

5.   An oxygen generator which replaces the oxygen tanks now being used in hospitals.  His effort to launch this was thwarted by crooks at DOH   Oxygen concentrator generator

Inogen One G2 Oxygen Concentrator

6.   A cold storage plant for his kababayan.  His city is a vegetable basket of the island province.  He plans to partner with a cooperative so that the producers do not have rotten produce or fall prey to traders.

7.  A hospital and lying in center in the city

8.  Commercial complex

9.  Dormitories for students studying in the city from nearby towns

And then:

We are going to develop a memorial park in his city on a site adjacent to the municipal cemetery which he got only for x millions.  He will get 9x from his investment should the project become successful

                          Proposed site for hospital lying in

                          Property at the back of the church for
                            ossuary and or memorial chapel

Proposed site for memorial park
                           Flat rolling and good feng shui

                         Power is available at the site

                            At the back of the municipal cemetery
                             we will have apartments (body crypts)
                             We will provide one hectare for 5 year
                              rental only for P6,000

                            The municipal cemetery is filled up

                          Typical of the cemetery:  full and
                            helter skelter arrangement

                      My business partner walking down the
                      access road to the site;  about 150 meters
                      from the highway

Properties of Tito for subdivision

                          That is the plateau over there

                      Tito owns 800 hectares but were carped;
                      this one is 73 x 530 meters

                           Access road is near Caltex gas

                             Mostly planted to sugar cane

Abandoned 20 hectare project with
a major MM developer who lived luxuriously

                            Beautiful houses abound but
                           what you read in Lamudi is about
                            raw land between 100 to 300 php
                            per square meter

                          If we can sell at P3t per square meter
                          Tito B would be richer by P100 m
                            but that is a long shot

The veggie basket of the island province
                    Since the place is conducive for growing                           veggies, the price of cabbage is only P10 php per                   kg.  It is like being in Baguio.   Water is plenty
                and cost of agri production is cheap. It has                             something to do with food security

Leading Edge

Don't hide your failings, says Intuit CEO
Intuit CEO Brad Smith once tried to correct his father's spoken English but was rebuffed, saying that it was more important to him to be authentic. People appreciate a warts-and-all approach to leadership because they aren't perfect either, Smith's father told him. The New York Times (tiered subscription model) (4/12)

How to face up to your mistakes
Nobody's perfect, but leadership can be defined by how you handle mistakes and shortcomings, writes Paul LaRue. If you let your temper get the better of you, or are unduly harsh with an employee, it's important to step up, admit your mistakes and make amends. "Go to the issue, no matter how painful it may be. Only then can everyone start to move forward as a team," LaRue writes. (4/11)

Strategic Management

The problem with golden parachutes
Executive severance packages, or "golden parachutes," were originally intended to help leaders make decisions that were right for their companies even if it cost them their jobs. Over the years, however, payments have become inflated and detached from their original purpose, writes Sanjay Sanghoee. "From a pay-for-performance standpoint, parachutes actually offer a disincentive for executives to do their best for a company," he warns. CNNMoney/Fortune (4/11)

Can Coca-Cola rediscover its sparkle?
Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent Media Briefing

Coca-Cola's U.S. sales are waning, and CEO Muhtar Kent is focused on restoring soda sales through added advertising and marketing. Some predict that Coke will eventually have to focus on other categories, such as energy drinks, as consumers grow increasingly health-conscious. "Sugar water with bubbles is not the future of the world. There's an existential issue," warns industry consultant Tom Pirko.

Smarter Communication

A crash course in crisis communications
Communication is key for companies in turmoil, writes Andrea Lekushoff. Leaders should be activating planned crisis strategies, not trying to create one in real time, and should have management and communications teams informed about what's going on and what it could mean. "Don't try to stall people or avoid them outright -- they will simply look for information themselves which may be inaccurate," Lekushoff writes. (Canada)/The Blog (4/9)

Innovation and Creativity

A chicken sandwich? That'll be $50 million, please
Chick-fil-A is introducing a recipe for grilled chicken products after an innovation process that took seven years and cost more than $50 million. Creating the sandwich required developing ovens capable of grilling meat without drying it out, installing the equipment in 1,775 restaurants, and testing more than 1,000 recipe variations.

How to rediscover your appetite for risk
Too many companies get comfortable as they grow, writes Drew Marshall. The trick is finding ways to stay hungry without taking needless risks that could drag your company down. Marshall offers five benefits of "innovation messiness," as well as four ways to manage risk. SmartBrief/SmartBlog on Leadership (4/11)

Engage. Innovate. Discuss.

Want to give a good speech? Stop slouching
(YouTube/John Baldoni)
Your body language and posture affect how your public speeches are received, says John Baldoni in this blog post and video. "A speaker hunched over at the podium, or one who is furtively glancing sideways or upwards, but never at the audience, radiates discomfiture," Baldoni writes.

Daily Diversion

Do you have socks appeal?
Snazzy, brightly colored socks are considered by many the perfect complement to suits or sweatpants, to startups in Silicon Valley or executives on Wall Street and beyond. "Folks are showing their power, their bravado in the boardroom. The louder the socks, the bigger the wallet," says stylist Lauren Rothman. Quartz (4/13)
