#LiveBrighter Session with "Apprentice Asia" winner Jonathan Yabut a must learn session for Millennials

"There's so much inspiration to be had in this Live Brighter Session, between Jonathan's and JP's stories. I'm sure that the bloggers who joined us in the venue and even those who tuned in via Facebook Live found motivation to continue pursuing their dreams and finding a purpose to serve. We hope that this also opens to them opportunities that they can enjoy if they become a financial advisor. It's a career that's definitely meaningful, and at the same time financially rewarding." ~Fin Bernardo, Sun Life Financial Advisor Recruitment Manager

Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates for when this cohort starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use the early 1980's as starting birth years and the mid-1990's to early 2000's as ending birth years. Millennials, who are generally the children of baby boomers and older Gen Xers, are sometimes referred to as "Echo Boomers" due to a major surge in birth rates in the 1980's and 1990's. 

Jonathan Yabut, the first winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia," graced Sun Life Financial's "Live Brighter Session," a gathering of bloggers and aspiring financial advisors, he shared how he rose from humble beginnings to become a successful businessman and an in-demand motivational speaker as well as aspiring of becoming a president in the future....

Sun Life's Financial Sessions always surprises me with their talks and inspirational speakers, since the first time i attended their event till now it lead me to understanding my financial status as well as my future financial stability together with my partner in life.

Mr. Yabut, talked about the work principles that has brought him to where he is right now, and also emphasized the importance of serving a social purpose which will keep improving his work. After winning the reality show hosted by Malaysian business mogul Tony Fernandes he had served as Chief of Staff for AirAsia for a year.

Now Mr. Yabut runs his very own JY Consultancy & Ventures, which operates in Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. He is also today's one of Asia's Leading Motivational Speakers from topics such as Leadership, Office Productivity and Workforce....

Well i was once a millennial during my days I am such an ambitious one i have more than 1 job and yes it was hard maybe because being the breadwinner makes me want to earn more for my family's sake. But when i reach my 30's i realized i am missing a lot... so much. Until now when i look back i realized i had missed a lot of points and lessons which made me realized its never too late to change some future plans and principles in my life.

Jonathan Yabut's Principles of formula
1. Success is when preparation meets opportunity.

2. You don’t need to say “YES” to every opportunity of success.
Success also requires saying, "NO".

"I am as proud of what we don't do, as I am with what we do. Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do." ~Steve Jobs
3. In order to stand out, you also need to “Stand Back”
Leadership is pullership not pushership.

4. The secret to success is out there: it's called, GRIT

5. The secret of success is out there: GRIT

Apart from Yabut, Sun Life Financial advisor Mr. JP Cruz also spoke, giving an inside look at his own career, as well as his personal journey. He spoke about how he reached rock bottom in both his finances and his love life, and what he did to overcome the struggle. Now a successful Sun Life advisor, Cruz interestingly stressed a thought to what Yabut emphasized: that is to have a deeper reason for the work one pursues. In his case, Cruz finds it by helping people achieve lifetime financial security.

Points to ponder during the Q&A portion from the speakers....

I am always looking forward of Sun Life next session, gaining knowledge and inspirations from different successful people who achieved their goals in life are worth following their footsteps to financial freedom.
