“Rich Real Radical”: An Awakening Book to Success

Unlocking Your Potential

I sat beside The Freeman Executive Lifestyle Editor Marlinda Angbetic Tan and Philippine Star’s Honey Jarque Loop as we interview the new Cebu authors.

It was the launching of a life changing book titled “Rich Real Radical: 40 Lessons from a Magna cum Laude and a College Drop Out“.

University of San Jose – Recoletos Magna Cum Laude Hanz Florentino confides, “this book is about us and our learnings which brought us to where we are now.”

Surely, Jan Mack Hilado (the college drop-out) needs no introduction to me. To those who don’t know him, he was the first Treasurer of Cebu Bloggers Society, whom I am presently the president. As one of the observers, Jan is not your ordinary student. He is always on the go with ideas outside and beyond the box.

Internet Marketing Guru Jomar Hilario calls Jan as one of his successful students. Jan joined one of Mr. Hilario’s training when he was just 17, and then the rest is history.

He sopped his Nursing course with the blessing of his equally radical and liberal minded father, Tony.

Hanz, on the other hand, is your typical yet top-of-the-class graduate. Yet, he is one of those few corporate guys who has crazy dreams. “Inspire 10,000 lives before he reaches 30.” Though he had worked as one of the mid-managers of the corporate world, he was only able to reach hundreds.


Hanz leaves his “secured” lifestyle and career and began hunting his dream. In one of the trainings held in Cebu, Jan and Hanz met and the rest is history.

Hanz is now one of the VP’s of a business incubation company in Cebu, while Jan has just been awarded as a member of the Millionaires Club of an multi-level marketing company.

Investing less than Php 400 (or around 10 US Dollars) is one of the tuition that you should take in reaching success. I agree that the RICH REAL RADICAL book is worth all its content, not just that I know personally the gentlemen behind the book, but the fact that these book is an outline and blueprint of their success.

If Bo Sanchez said praises to this book, among other self-help book authors and mentors, who are we not to check this out.

I think one of the mistakes you will be making now, is after reading this is you wont even bother to check their website here to check their book.

Opportunity comes to us in form of work. Most of the time we neglect to read one of the books that can enlighten us about success because we are too PRE-occupied with all other minute things.

Personally, this book is one of those few books worth reading. Maybe, your epifany to wealth starts when you read this book.
