EDI­TOR’S NOTE

Cebu Living - - Contents - Jude A. Ba­calso Cebu Liv­ing Edi­tor at Large

Money makes the world go round, and dur­ing no other sea­son does it prove truer than now. The end of the year frenzy is pal­pa­ble, and it is both a wel­come tra­di­tion as well as a night­mare.

To help you nav­i­gate the com­ing year is our Money Is­sue, be­cause mag­a­zines also have to an­swer the ques­tion “How does one make money?” We’ve gath­ered a most di­verse group of Cebu’s en­trepreneurs, from the day­walk­ers to the night shifters, to dis­pense tricks of the trade that a bud­ding busi­nessper­son can ap­ply to their own star­tups. Chris­tian Buhisan is shak­ing up the af­ter-hours with a steady stream of par­ties aimed at the mil­lenial and Gen Edge crowds while Shanna Lopez is bring­ing her youth­ful vibe to the whirl­wind world of real es­tate.

But it’s time for that other ques­tion about money: What does one make of it? Our cover boy Clay­ton Tugonon, the spank­ing new ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of CITEM, knows that af­ter you’ve made enough from a suc­cess­ful foray into a busi­ness, the next step is the busi­ness of mak­ing other peo­ples’ lives bet­ter. You’ll love his can­did re­flec­tions on money mat­ters, and why what re­ally mat­ters has truly changed for him. Happy New Year, ev­ery­one!
