Mentors and Learning Curves


2 decades ago

I had my first shock  from the food industry not knowing a thing about it and having myself in the middle of the fast-paced world.  My first mentor was a guy named Jeri. He taught me the very basics of financial statements and people  & marketing management.  Yeah, I learned a great deal from the old management of Chowking.

A decade ago

I shifted from a food industry top management level to an entry-level position in the BPO industry.  I had to learn from scratch and work my way up.  I thought I was customer oriented already having been in the food industry for so long, but it didn’t quite hit the mark in the BPO. I had to learn and understand the concept of service level management and yes, I had to adjust a great deal my management style since I was dealing with an entirely different environment.


I had a skype call with Ka Ruthy and Mike and for the nth time in my life, I found myself learning how to walk. Small steps, they call it. Unfortunately, i don’t have the luxury of time to take these little steps.  I have to learn the fastest but remain grounded.

To all my mentors

Thank  you for teaching me.  It’s nice to know that I have a lot of room to improve on and more roads to travel.

Life for me after all is a constant learning curve.
