Energy Family on Full Alert as Amang Heads for the Visayas


Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Department of Energy (DOE) is leading energy resiliency preparations as Tropical Depression (TD) Amang heads toward the Samar and Leyte islands. The DOE called on the members of the Task Force on Energy Resiliency (TFER) yesterday (21 January) for the close monitoring of TD Amang’s movements, the commencement of precautionary measures, the provision of updates on the status of energy facilities in the areas to be affected, and coordinate with the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), residents within the Visayas and Bicol regions should anticipate moderate to heavy downpour as TD Amang is projected to move northwest at 10 kilometers per hour (km/h) with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h near the center. Amang is expected to be within 75 kilometers west of Tacloban City at 8:00 A.M. tomorrow morning (22 January).

DOE Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said, “The entire energy family is maintaining round-the-clock communications, especially with NDRRMC, to ensure that our people are given fair warning and ample time to prepare and keep their families safe. We urge our kababayans to promptly heed safety warnings and cooperate with the Local Government Unit if there is a need to evacuate.”

On generation, the latest report of the National Power Corporation (NPC) indicates that all NPC dams are undergoing normal operations, as of 8:14 A.M. with no spilling operations under effect.

For transmission, Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative, Inc. was affected by a brief power outage reported within the Puerto-Lunocan 34.5kV Transmission Line at 4:57 A.M. today, but was swiftly restored by 5:08 A.M.

The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) likewise implemented necessary preparations and precautions to minimize the impact of TD Amang on its transmission operations and facilities, including the provision of reliable communications equipment, hardware materials and supplies for damage repairs, as well as the strategic positioning of line crews for immediate restoration work when needed. As of 1:00 P.M. today, they have reported normal operations for all NGCP transmission lines and facilities.

Meanwhile, the National Electrification Administration has advised electric cooperatives to take the appropriate contingency measures to mitigate the impact of potential threats that might affect electricity services and prepare for the possible activation of an Emergency Restoration Organization to immediately carry out power restoration plans.

“It is crucial for hospitals and key government structures to have continuous access to energy services in the face of disasters. The energy family will provide timely updates to our people,” Sec. Cusi concluded.

10 Steps to Becoming a Better Entrepreneur in 2019



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Becoming a better entrepreneur and earning more Pesos in 2019 should be one of your top priorities. Many workers, businesses and enterprises have resumed for the year hoping to be bigger, better and stronger. So should you.

But as they say, hope (alone) is not a strategy. Becoming a better entrepreneur, business owner or person in many cases requires hard work, change of approach etc. Following a clearly mapped strategy makes achieving your entrepreneurship dreams easier in the new year.

Perhaps you’re doing just fine or fantastic as an entrepreneur and wondering why bother? Here’re

5 Reasons to Become a Better Entrepreneur

You can and should become a better entrepreneur going forward for the following reasons

Still enough room for improvement

Competitors are getting better

Customers are becoming better and demanding better

Bigger, better patronage equals bigger, better revenue

Better revenue drives reinvestment, expansion.

Whereas some entrepreneurs fared well in 2018 some others fared worse and are fearing for the worst come 2019. In this post we’ll be sharing 10 key steps to becoming a (much) better entrepreneur in 2019 irrespective of where you currently stand on the entrepreneurial success spectrum.

1.   Take Stock
Navigation systems rely on your current location to get you to your concurrent location. To become a better entrepreneur in 2019 you need to know just how you performed in 2018. To do this effectively you might need a more objective external auditor to take an impassioned look at your books, business practices and methods.

This will reveal your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, thereby helping you make smarter business decisions like other successful entrepreneurs.


2.   Go Digital
Perhaps not going digital yet is one of the findings from your stock taking above. Learning what you’re missing out on by ignoring digital options versus what you stand to gain by going online can spur you to act.

There are over 1.5 billion websites out there many of which are businesses just as over 2 million businesses have or use an Instagram account. Many more are on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks where modern customers hang out. You should try digital marketing in 2019.

3.   Use Data
One setback of staying analogue is relying on guesswork and gut feeling, which aren’t the best for entrepreneurship in the 21st century. Data on the other hand eliminates guesswork and gives you precision helping you make more informed business decisions.

Automating much or all of your business practices and processes will help you generate more concise data which will help you plan and prepare better. Accurate customer information for instance can inform product design and development which could result in happier repeat customers.

4.   Try Social Media
Social media is huge. Reports suggest that over 2.6 billion people and counting are active on social media each day. That’s massive considering most markets are small depending on your niche, industry or vertical.

Social media posts can go viral in minutes reaching people and places you’d probably never reach in three lifetimes times three. Social media marketing should form a core part of your 2019 marketing strategy if you hope to become a better entrepreneur.

5.   And Email Marketing
Email marketing is another inexpensive way smart entrepreneurs and marketers keep their businesses running profitably. ROI per dollar spent is said to be over $38.  There are free and paid email marketing tools that can help automate your entire email marketing moves.

This way you can keep in constant touch with your customers, announce new arrivals, special offers, discounts, rebates, sales, etc. With email marketing you can upsell and also retarget cold or even dead leads thereby reducing cart abandonment.

6.   Bulk SMS Too
Bulk SMS is another inexpensive way entrepreneurs can get their messages across to customers, especially if such customers live in countries or areas with limited internet access. Irrespective of location, bulk sms has been reported to have an open rate of over 90%. Impressive, plus more and more people now use phones.

You could include links in your message body to direct customers to your website where you can better engage them and increase your chances of conversion or closing a sale.

7.   Study Competitors
In this digital era (see why you should go digital?), it is far easier for entrepreneurs to study, monitor or keep an eye on competitors. You can discreetly follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other such digital hangouts.

Chances are you’re also being cyber stalked, studied or monitored by other entrepreneurs especially if you’re doing well in business. By studying their social media habits for instance you can see how they succeed on social and try to implement or modify that to your taste.

8.   Subscribe to Successful Blogs
Successful blogs in many industries are a dime a dozen, if you find any in your niche or vertical do well to subscribe to their newsletters and read their blogs for latest happenings in your industry. Sites like Business Insider, Entrepreneur and Forbes, Neil Patel, etc often feature content most entrepreneurs will fall in love with.

With such information entrepreneurs and business owners are greatly empowered to improve their businesses by copying and pasting proven best practices. Someday you may be down and then find inspiration by reading another entrepreneur’s success story.

9.   Keep Fit
Keeping fit has physical, emotional and psychological benefits especially for entrepreneurs who are generally known to be workaholics. Taking breaks, resting, walking and working out can help you relax, refresh and reset your mind. As your body releases endorphins you’re at your best and can make better business decisions.

Plus working out at the gym can be a means of networking with other like minded entrepreneurs who can introduce you to a new business or tool that can increase your income or revenue or share rare tips about entrepreneurship you may never read in a book.

10. Hire and Fire Fair
Be fair and firm when it comes to hiring and firing staff or workers. By carefully selecting employees you save yourself and business a lot of stress down the road. Most entrepreneurs have discovered that hiring close family members may tie their hands and hurt their business, none of which you want.

Hiring and managing the right talent takes work, if you have them let them know you value their contributions to make the business grow and reward them as much as you can. Continuously redundant workers should be shown the exit or else your business may soon exit the market.

New Mobile App Allows Users Easier Processing and Payment of Real Property Tax


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Tech company Togetech, Inc. teams up with Pinnacle Real Estate Consulting Services, Inc. to deliver real property tax payments through the Moneygment app

In its abiding commitment in providing tech-enabled financial solutions for Filipino consumers, Togetech, Inc. has partnered with Pinnacle Real Estate Consulting Services, Inc. to offer property owners assessment and payment of their real property taxes (RPT) or amilyar as part of the former’s Moneygment mobile application.

This service—made possible through the partnership between Togetech and Pinnacle—makes processing and payment of RPT seamless and convenient. Property owners won’t have to queue in the city or municipal treasurer’s office of the local government unit (LGU) where their property is located, making sure that payment is made on time. In the long-run, the Moneygment app promotes regularity of RPT payments thus making Filipinos more responsible and tax-abiding citizens.





The initial roll-out of the Moneygment app’s RPT service covers Metro Manila and Cebu. Service to other areas, such as the northern and southern parts of Luzon and Davao, are slated for release later in 2019.

The partnership comes as part of Togetech’s wide array of finance-related offerings and services made possible through the Moneygment app.

How it works

Users can download the Moneygment app from the Apple Store and Google Play. Once installed, they can create an account using their Facebook, Gmail, or any other email account, after which they can choose from a wide range of finance-related and payment services available: Pag-IBIG, PhilHealth, and SSS contributions; bills and other utilities; loan application and payment; and personal income and real property taxes, among others.

To pay for RPT, users need to have their properties assessed first. To do this, they will be asked to fill in needed information, such as title number, full name of the owner as stated in the title, and the local government unit. Afterwards, they will be asked to fill in the tax declaration number. Upon confirmation and payment of the processing fee, users will then be asked to email copies of pertinent documents to customercare@moneygment.ph. They can track the progress of the assessment by tapping the History tab.

Users will receive an email once property assessment is complete. Once the amount has been carefully reviewed, they can then proceed with payment via the different options available. Once paid, they will receive an update that Pinnacle is processing the filing of their RPT. They will then receive their official receipt (OR) and statement of account (SOA) upon completion. All of this can be done without going to the city or municipal treasurer’s office of the LGU where the property is located.
