1Heart Caregiver Services Participated at the 19th Bi-National Convention of the Federation of Philippine American Chambers of Commerce in Las Vegas
1Heart Caregiver Services’ Executive Team actively participated in all the programs of the 19th Bi-National Convention of the Federation of Philippine American Chambers of Commerce held from November 6-8, 2015 at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
1Heart Caregiver Services, as an active delegate from the Philippine American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles, signified its full support of the FPACC’s mission in forging cooperation among Philippine business entities, both public and private, here in the US and in the Philippines, and facilitating economic goodwill between the US and the Philippines. 1Heart Caregiver Services set up a booth that showcased the 1Heart Caregiver Services brand, along with the 1Heart Advantage franchising opportunity it has come to be known for.
On Friday noon, 1Heart’s CEO Belina Nernberg gave a very insightful speech, describing her humble beginnings, expounding on her foray into entrepreneurship and into the home care industry, and encouraging other women to give entrepreneurship a try. “It has been an amazing and fulfilling journey thus far. I have to admit that it has been very challenging though – being a female CEO and running a company that employs an average of 80 people at any given time. You wear different hats every day and you have to know when to take off the CEO hat and be a mom, a wife or a friend. Every one of us are always presented with opportunities. Most of us are afraid to take the risk. I took mine and I’m fortunate I am in a business where the industry is just taking off and will continue to do so in the next 25 years.”
After her talk, people came to her to congratulate her not only for her success as a woman entrepreneur, but also for 1Heart Caregiver Services as a premier brand of in the caregiving industry. Attendees were one in admiring and congratulating 1Heart for the brand that 1Heart Caregiver Services has become. 1Heart Caregiver Services takes pride in its excellence in the home care industry as it aims to stay true to its core values of Professionalism, Reliability and Responsibility.
The 1Heart Executive team headed by CEO Belina Nernberg, Director of Business and Franchise Development Randolph Clarito, Franchise Field Consultant and Senior Client Care Manager Arnold Navarro, Client Care Manager Michelle Quilala and Business Development Executive Kat Pacis participated in the round table discussion and individual meetings with Chamber members who would love to form alliances and network with 1Heart. Other Federation Chamber members all across USA invited 1Heart to visit and meet with their local business communities to forge alliances with healthcare professionals and engage entrepreneurs into the 1Heart business opportunity.
