Treading heavily, I arrived 30 minutes past 8 in the morning at PICC to have good seats (for my office mate and me) for Bo Sanchez’s Wealth Summit 2013.
The event was scheduled to start at 9 AM, and I was there catching my breath when suddenly Captain America, Superman, and Superwoman stood there at the entrance smiling and said, “Good morning, Sir!”

I was shocked! I responded and proceeded to the summit hall, smiling. My excitement rushed when I saw the banners and tarpaulins of the event with Bo Sanchez’s profile on it.
The stage had a wide LED screen that displayed the Superman logo with “Wanted: Superheroes of Abundance” text on it. Beside the stage stood there a live band tweaking their instruments to have a good mix, before the event started.
Can’t wait to see these real businessmen, I thought. A flock of more than 500 would-be superheroes marched down at PICC to see REAL entrepreneurs and investors in action for Wealth Summit 2013.

The speakers talked about valuable business lessons and thought-provoking experiences. And I loved it, with all my heart.
The majority of the attendees were all 30+ years old, I observed. Woah, am I the youngest here? I thought. But it didn’t matter anymore.
The fact that we were there gathered around for a purpose – to be the next superheroes of the church, was an awesome feeling that I felt and it made me realize. That no matter how old or young you are, as long as you are helping other people, you’re a superhero!
Bo is a superhero. He preaches financial education to his millions of followers. He helps them achieve their dreams and clears the confusion in their heads when it comes to money and investing.
Bo started the opening of the summit by talking about “How to Become a Superhero of Abundance”. He said that there are two ways to have abundance: produce wealth and reproduce wealth.
The former is about building a business that gives VALUE to customers to support one’s necessities and lifestyle while the latter is about replicating this business to have more and more passive income. Miriam Quiambao followed with a talk about her life: her struggles, downfalls, dilemmas, and her success.
She mentioned how she got into winning the Ms. Universe title, her married life, and how she returned to God which she left away when she already achieved her dreams in an instant. Her speech was entitled, “How I Found My True Wealth.”
The speeches were followed by the following speakers:
Network Marketing Business: “Help People Help People”
Benjie & Fely Santiago – International Marketing Group (IMG)
Ivy de la Cruz – USANA
Dr. Butch Mercado – Royale Club
Career: “How To Grow A Superhero Career”
Benedict Hernandez – Accenture
Real Estate: “Prospering Through Properties”
Larry Gamboa – CEO, Think Rich Pinoy
Ronald Cagape – Real Estate Investor, Larry’s Partner
Maves Angeles – Real Estate Investor, Larry’s Partner
Career Shift to Entrepreneur: “Your Job Prepares You For Your Business”
Steve Tamayo – Tamayo Catering
Charlie Fernando – CliXLogic
Stock Market: “Stocks Update Live with Edward Lee”
Edward Lee, Founder, and CEO, COL Financial
Stock Market: “How to Create Millions in the Stock Market using Strategic Averaging Method (SAM)”
Mike Vinas, Director, Stocks Update, COL Financial
The first day of Wealth Summit 2013 was really pumped out because of these superheroes. I have gained significant insights and their talks washed away my misconceptions and wrong thoughts about being an entrepreneur. To sum it up, these are the things that I liked on the first day of Wealth Summit 2013.
Wealth Summit Venue
Bo Sanchez (and the Mastermind Group) didn’t settle for less. PICC is nothing but second to none when it comes to events and special gatherings. The proximity of the place to business districts, accessibility to attendees, and the facility itself make PICC the best place for gatherings and seminars.

Bo Sanchez and Top Calibre Speakers
Most of the Wealth Summit 2013 speakers are the REAL authority in their field though there are some newbies invited to the Q&A portion. As cynical as I am (before), I tend not to believe individuals giving a speech when they are just a newbie and pretending to be a guru not even showing their credentials on such claims.
Just before the summit began, Mike Vinas popped out on the stage as the host and started the show with a series of praise songs and prayers. I really liked the idea of having the Lord in the event, that He is involved and not just people talking to people.
The speakers as well were not just financially rich, but also SPIRITUALLY RICH! They all have the common denominator: placing GOD at the center of their businesses. Likewise, we ended the day with praise songs and prayers. As a result, I felt so blessed and happy though I was not close to God. Now I’m learning to love Him.
Wealth Summit 2013 was indeed a successful event, and I strongly recommend this to all Filipinos. While I was in the course of listening to their speeches, a flash in my mind came.
It is good to see these people again at the next Wealth Summit. To double this number next year would be better too. The best is the majority of Filipinos are financially educated and no one is complaining about their finances anymore.
I don't see any hands. Who attended this one? :)
Indeed! Let us help one another influencing our fellow Juan :)
Hi Randy. It was my first time attending this seminar and I was really impressed. See you on Wealth Summit 2014!
Thanks for this article. At least I have a glimpse of what really happened coz I was not able to attend. I hope to do it next time. You are blessed. I'm sure all those who participated were blessed too.
If all Filipinos were open to learning and acting like you soon all of us we'll be God's hands Superheroes of Abundance.
