Somebody asked me why I feature entrepreneurs and online stores in this blog as much as I share my life as a mom. Simple: to inspire. I believe that in order for you to be the person you want to be, you have to surround yourself with positive influence. And what's more positive than featuring them here, right? I do not have entrepreneur-friends so nobody could nudge me into going and taking a risk to open up my own biz. Yes momma, one of my many goals is to be a full-fledged mompreneur. I want to manage my own time so I could still be a wife and mom; but also earn money for our small family. My husband's salary could be enough, but it's always better to have extra. I would really be so happy to be the woman mentioned in Proverbs 31:16.
For this month's Nanaygosyante, I will unfold a story of a woman of God who chose to do what she really wanted, while completely being in-charge of taking care of her 10-month-old bouncing baby boy. Joy dela Fuente-Mendoza, the owner of Joyful Events Consulting, is married to his business partner, Raymond --- a youth pastor at Marikina Fundamental Baptist Bible Church (MFBBC). Raymond, having previously worked at the Center for Pop Philippines as a vocal coach, helps Joy in scouting for clients. Her husband also makes sure to attend to their son's needs, whenever she has to make client calls. And since Joy is a mommy with no nanny for 9 months already, they tag along Cadence with them during date nights! She doesn't complain as their growing little man is a happy baby --- always smiling, laughing and screaming in glee.
In Joy's own words, you will see that she clearly prioritizes her son above anything else, apart from God and her husband. She doesn't accept any work as long as Cadence needs her; that she wishes to stay in love with Raymond as long as they can, so that their son could see how his parents truly love each other.
Our Nanaygosyante of the Month also never forgets to give time for herself by going to her favorite coffee shop for a quick caffeine fix (I miss doing that, in fairness!), or watching movies --- such as at home when their bubbly tot's already sleeping.
Joyful Events Consulting offers events planning and coordination, supplier sourcing and souvenirs. Joy aims to handle 3-5 weddings this year, and that would just be a reality if she could also fulfill her other goal in aggressively marketing her services. I guess she would reach these in no time as she has strong faith to our Big Boss up there, surrendering her family's life to Him so they could be stronger Christians.
