JUST A THOUGHT: Haters don’t hate us, they hate themselves. Because we are a reflection of what they wish to be. – Paulo Coelho.
MIRACLE, MUSIC AND LOVE: His full name is Neo de Padua, but he is known in certain showbiz circles as Kuya E.
A supporter of up and coming singers and actors through his own production company, Big Eyes, the 48-year old entrepreneur turns the other cheek this time by mounting the stage himself in a concert that he owns.
Neo takes centerstage in a concert called “Miracle, Music and Love” at the Music Museum on Dec. 14.
His guests include artists that he supports: E4 Band, Ani Pearl, Rapido, and Himig Handog 2017 awardee Aikee.
Neo promises his audience will not only be entertained, they will also be inspired by what he’s going to share.
“‘Ma-inspire ka at marami pang matututunan na makakatulong at magpapabago sa iyong buhay,” he says.
CANCER SURVIVOR: Where does it all come from, this inspirational speaker bit for which Neo has been known for?
A full-fledged networking executive on top of his own agency, Neo survived cancer (of the colon) some years back. He says he has learned so much from the humbling experience that he wants to help enrich the lives of others by sharing with them what he has learned about life. Put in also lessons on love, relationships and business.
Neo is tagged by his peers in the multi-level marketing industry as “The Millionaire Maker of MLM Industry in the Philippines.”
His own agency has a 350,000 membership engaged in the promotion and distribution of M-Global (health and wellness) products.
“I want to help people enrich themselves not just materially but also deep inside them,’ he states.
NANGANGARAP: In an interview, Neo also announced that he’s launching a new, inspirational talk show on Net 25 in early 2018.
Aimed at giving hope to dreamers, the one-hour show is to be called “RYTS” (Rule Yourself to Success).
He has also just wrapped up an album, with Vehnee Saturno as producer.
His carrier single is “Akoy Nangarap,” which is now available on iTunes worldwide.
The album, his first, is produced by Neo’s very own Big Eyes Events and Productions.
