I have to admit that I did pray and wish that my latest book, The Happy Entrepreneur, would find its way to the Top 10 Best Seller list again like my two last books (Real Men are POGI, #5 and Ang Pera na Hindi Bitin, #1).
But I had some doubts whether people would appreciate the new format and genre that I chose for The Happy Entrep… A fictional story of a young desperate entrepreneur, Eddie, who finds a God sent mentor, Timmy, who guides Eddie and introduces him to real life, non fictional, entrepreneurs like John Gokongwei Jr, social entrep Illac Diaz, Dylan Wilk of Human Nature, Entrep Champ Paolo Tibig, farmer Dodong Cacanando and more.
But then, readers kept on sending me good reviews–quite a number said the book made them laugh and cry and that God was speaking to them through the book.
I figured my job was done, whether or not my book got to the best seller list.
So I was hopping for joy while holding Elijah when my editor vibered me the picture of National’s Top 10 Best Sellers list for February and encircled number 2: The Happy Entrepreneur!
This was last last Sunday, the day after baby Elijah was born… So medyo anti climactic the news, but my heart was happy and praising God from whom all blessings come from.
I am so grateful to God and overwhelmed. Truly, truly
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
James 1:17 NIV
To God be all the glory!

The Happy Entrepreneur, by award winning author Ardy Roberto, tells the story of a struggling young entrepreneur named Eddie, who is mentored by a kind hearted billionaire businessman named Tim. Together they go through an entrep mindset adventure and meet different real life hero entrepreneurs (including Dylan Wilk of Human Nature, Illac Diaz of Liter of Light, John Gokongwei Jr, Richard Branson and more).
It was written to encourage both young and old to trust God and not to give up on their dreams. The Happy Entrepreneur will make you smile, laugh and cry. A reader says it is “beyond inspiring!”
