Sunlife #Live Brighter Session with Jonathan Yabut and JP Cruz

Jonathan Yabut the first winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia" shares his "GRIT" for becoming successful


The first ever winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia/' Jonathan Yabut, graced Sun Life
Financial's "Live Brighter Session," a gathering for bloggers and aspiring financial advisors, to share the story of how he rose from humble beginnings to become a successful businessman and an in-demand motivational speaker.

Yabut, who served as Chief of Staff for AirAsia for a year after winning in the reality show hosted by Malaysian business mogul Tony Fernandes, now runs his very own JY Consultancy & Ventures, which operates in Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. Addressing the bloggers and aspiring advisors, he talked about the work principles that has brought him to where he is now, and also emphasized the importance of serving a social purpose. According to Yabut, the latter is what will keep one inspired to keep improving his work.


Apart from Yabut, Sun Life Financial advisor JP Cruz also spoke, giving the bloggers an inside look at his own career, as well as his personal journey. He spoke about how he reached rock bottom in both his finances and his love life, and what he did to overcome the struggle. Now a successful Sun Life advisor, Cruz interestingly stressed a thought akin to what Yabut emphasized: that is to have a deeper reason for the work one pursues. In his case, Cruz finds it by helping people achieve lifetime financial security.

"There's so much inspiration to be had in this Live Brighter Session, between Jonathan's and JP's stories. I'm sure that the bloggers who joined us in the venue and even those who tuned in via Facebook Live found motivation to continue pursuing their dreams and finding a purpose to serve," Sun Life Financial Advisor Recruitment Manager Fin Bernardo said. "We hope that this also opens to them opportunities that they can enjoy if they become a financial advisor. It's a career that's definitely meaningful, and at the same time financially rewarding."


This session of SunLife supposedly for millennials only yet we are fortunate to be invited again by Mr. Arnel Bautista- one of the financial adviser assigned to the bloggers.

Question is Why for Millennials only? 

Well, millennials now are talking of the century because of their huge number in our population and its increasingly every year. Millennials describes to be "more civically and politically disengaged, more focused on materialistic values, and less concerned about helping the larger community.

Some of the youth today, have no clear goals about their future. The common term with this is "happy go lucky".

This #Live Brighter Session will really helps the youth to plan for their better future. I learn a lot of new things with this two speaker and I hope they continuously share their success to all people.

The word of Mr. Jonathan Yabut was truly inspiring and powerful. "Goose bumps" I feel at the time of listening to his story. He is very determined to achieve his goals. I'm sure lots of attendees have gained valuable information. Now, it will depend on how they will apply to their own.
