The seminar started with a Financial Literacy Course presented by an IMG Financial Educator, Marie Kris Mendoza. Her topic shed some light on Building a Strong Financial Foundation, How Money Works and Growing Wealth. This was an activity that made the families realize the importance of investments.
The next course that the participants embarked, was an Online Selling Course by a Full-Time Online Seller, Roselyn Montes. One of her topics emphasized on choosing a strategy and what works best for her is when she shares her personal experiences while using the product. This talk opened their eyes to the opportunity of making extra income at the comfort of their homes.
Finally, the participants got to enjoy an exciting workshop on Social Graces by Mary Kay representative, Minerva Dorado. This workshop included Behavior during Meetings, Table Etiquette and the awaited Proper Skin Care Product Applications. The participants definitely took pleasure in this hands-on activity.
