It all began when she began her catering she was asked to serve breakfast for hundreds of workers who report early and not having anything to eat. Her instinct made her wake up early morning and head on to the nearest bakery. With her old rickety car she bought all the bread the baker would display. The baker finally asked her what she was doing as he would be in trouble with his regular customers as everything is sold? Julie explained it was for her catering business as a breakfast line. The baker then uttered a joke "If you want, get me as a partner and will start a bakery!"

John Calub The Filipino with a Mighty Dream To Uplift Everybody
John Calub grew up in extreme poverty in his early childhood years after his parent’s house, which was situated in a remote province in the Philippines, got burned.  After this awful situation, his parent’s migrated to the city of Manila hoping to find a way to get back up financially.  However, years passed and their economic status barely improved.  This was the time that John started dreaming of transforming his life to help his parents get out of poverty.   John learned selling at a young age and was able to send himself to University of the Philippines from selling different household products to his classmates during breaks.  From there, he graduated with two degrees namely Bachelor of Science in Economics and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. After graduation, he worked as an entry-level executive for several years until he found himself becoming a part-time writer for the biggest newspaper company in the Philippines. His assignment was to interview successful people as how they reached the top and kept themselves at top.  This led to John’s turning point, where he got a chance to meet Jack Canfield, who at that time was doing an international book signing for his best-seller entitled The Success Principles.  John interviewed Jack and was invited to attend his one-day seminar about success. After applying the principles he learned from Jack’s book and his live seminar, John went on to becoming a sought after sales consultant to top corporations in his country and immediately rose from being broke to becoming a multi-millionaire in less than one year.     Today, John Calub, is recognized by the biggest media companies in his country as the Philippines’ number one success coach and persuasion guru.  He is the founder of John Calub Training International, an academy for personal development.  His workshops have already produced thousands of success stories and multi-millionaires in Asia.  He is the founder of Success Community, the fastest growing online mastermind group in the world with membership growing at an exponential rate.  He has been quoted in publications like Forbes Magazine, Entrepreneur, et al.  His amazing life story has been featured in two New York Times best-selling books of Jack Canfield namely the Success Prinicples (10th Anniversary Edition) and Living The Success Priniciples. He has been personally mentored by top global business gurus the likes of John Maxwell, Robert Kiyosaki, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy and billionaire’s Donald Trump and Richard Branson. His book Abundance Factor, which he co-authored with Dr. Joe Vitale, made it to number one best-selling book in Amazon in one category.  Lastly, he co-hosted Success Secrets, a nationwide TV show viewed by millions. On the lighter side, John is now happily married and blessed with two kids.  He loves travelling the globe with his family every year.  On his spare time, he collects gold toys from all over the world and dreams of making his toy collection part of the Guinness Book of World Records.
