Metron in the Philippines
Metron Helps Entrepreneurs
With the success of Metron and the virtual nature of the online marketing business, Owners, Mike and Becky Newhook have been able to put their hands to more charitable endeavors. Having lived in the Philippines when they were first married, they returned to find their friends owning businesses, longing to start businesses or battling with businesses that lacked much planning and training for success. It was with this knowledge that they began to explore the opportunities to use their expertise and train, partner and launch local Filipinos into business and GIVE BACK!
There are two common mindsets that occur in the Philippines culture. The first is Hand to Mouth Syndrom. It is small thinking that creates a thought pattern that causes one to think day to day and never to think bigger or plan ahead. The second is crab mentality. This is the most common mindset we see in the area we serve in. When one friend or family begins to succeed, you try to discourage or create thoughts that would bring doubt that succeeding is ever possible. If they do succeed there is much jealousy. Both mindsets keep the poverty cycle looping over and over in families.
In order to think bigger and break off these mindsets, it is essential to open their thoughts to see what is possible for them and others. Dreaming, planning, discipline, and practical business training can allow anyone to succeed and make a difference for their families.
Currently, their projects are as follows:
- Commercial Aquaponics Farm – partnering with local farmers to teach and create a sustainable farming solution and all things business and family balance.
- Online Grocery Store – helping grow an online business of a young Filipina this coming 2019 with email marketing, website development, and business coaching.
