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!
