Go Negosyo book launch

When I confirmed attendance to this dinner little did I know it would be a power-packed event. The invitation said 730pm but I arrived shortly before 7pm and surprisingly there were already throngs of people inside Joey Concepcions house where the affair was held.

The Book Negosyo, Joey Concepcion's entreprenuerial stories featured 50 prominent business people who made their first million and continue to do so from the brothers Jaime and
