A Personal Invitation to Become a Maven!

Primary Logo Colored

Congratulations to Lord for winning the Maven Secrets Scholarship Contest! His "Fresh Buko ala Ube Ice Cream" blog post stood out from all the entries. Why did I choose his entry? 

First, I've never been to the Balatoc Gold Mine in Baguio. 
Second, his entire post is entertaining for someone who is just starting to blog. 
Third, I like his advocacy and I want to help him launch it effectively. 
Fourth, I would have entitled the entire post as Fresh Buko ala Ube Ice Cream as a headline. 
Fifth, it was a toss up between his entry and the Artful Hooker's entry. But I promise only one.
Sixth, he had me at the Buko ala Ube Ice Cream -- I'm craving for one now.
Seventh, the photos he used with his ballerina gf were eye catching.
Eight, I like his natural passion of living life to the fullest.
Ninth, If someone was to surpass OAP, I would like him/her to be coming from Maven Secrets :)

I'm giving a 40% off discount to the 2nd and 3rd prize winner.

Maven Secrets Register NOW:

You'll get the 9 videos (worth $147.00 or P7,000.00) of the original Meet-a-Maven series about the top 9 Internet Mavens in the Philippines that the pilot Maven group is raving about! . 

For the first 25 People: ($396.00 or P20,000.00 Worth of Bonus) 
You'll get a complimentary enrollment into The Definitive Guide to Professional Photo-Blogging Hands-On Workshop, consisting of four whole day sessions held on Saturdays. This is a total of 24 workshop hours worth $396.00 or P20,000.00 in value! The scheduled sessions are:

One-on-one coaching and consultation sessions on your Maven Strategy, on your blog or e-commerce site, or brainstorming on what profitable niche you want to get into. I only extended this to my pilot class and the first 15 people who will enroll in Maven Secrets. I usually charge at a starting rate of $997.00 or P50,000.00 per month for internet marketing business consultations. Over the course of 90 days, I expect to provide two months' worth of personalized coaching and consultation. 

I cannot extend this to all participants because I don't want to sacrifice time set aside for my family.

The Education Investment for Maven Secrets Program ($495 or P25,000 only)

The total investment for the Maven Secrets 90-day Program – Internet Marketing and Professional Blogging Training is just $495 (or P25,000 only).  

The value of the program is MUCH higher, but if you register for the program during this launch, you'll get the entire training for the amazingly low price of only $495. This is already for 78 hours of face to face training/coaching, and unlimited online interaction plus bonuses!

Congratulations to the winner... Sayang, so near yet so far! I hope there will be a next time, and that I'll have better luck. =D Thanks so much again, Anton, for this great opportunity. =)

Congrats to Lord!

Hi Anton,

Good morning.

Thank you for considering my entry for a scholarship slot. I wish to extend my congratulations to the winner. I got the third place (An Apprentice Wants to be a Master - ) and is grateful for the very generous 20 percent discount offer. I will have to postpone my investment on the program though because I still have other financial obligations that are more of a priority at this point in time. I still have not reached the point of financial freedom yet but I am not giving up. I already have a plan. I just need to allocate some of my resources specifically for this purpose and hopefully join the next batch. For now, I will need to work doubly hard and continue learning the art of blogging on my own. The “brickwalls” are there for a reason.

I hope you will still extend the 20 percent discount for me when I enroll in the Maven Secrets program later. Hehehe.

Have a nice day and more power to you. God bless!

Congrats to the winners! Hopefully I can join the next batch too.

Congratulations! Ako rin, parang kakain ng buko ala ube ice cream!

Dear Anton,

Thank you for granting me the scholarship to the Maven Secrets Program! I am still quite overwhelmed with your response as this is an endeavor that I have always wanted to do, but did not have the time and background to even consider until last week when you mentioned the opportunity to learn the essential tools to succeed in professional blogging coming from your own proven business model, insight, and passion. How could I possibly pass up such a rare and priceless opportunity?

I would also like to thank my fellow competitors and aspiring bloggers as it has been such a tough and nerve racking competition due to the high caliber and professionalism of the candidates.

We look forward to finally meeting you in person as we have a ton of questions and ideas to run by you. Have an awesome day ahead!!! :-)

Kind Regards,


Congratulations to Lord, Artful Hooker, and ed!


Go and join you guys! It is a worthwhile investment :) I joined on a whim but I think it was one of the best financial risks i took during that time :)
