When life is too grinding, going to Boracay Island for a break is perhaps the wisest decision to make. That is just what top notch million dollar sales achiever Petite Abella-Maglasang does.
As one of the top tourist destinations of the world, Boracay must be in one’s bucket list. This western Visayan island in the Philippines is simply heaven, especially for Petite. The greatest challenge for a fulltime financial adviser like her is to be able to sell a bright future to her clients by securing their incomes. “I am selling hopes and dreams, not tangible products. Hence, it is a different kind of marketing pitch which is really challenging.”
Petite’s profession is enough to put anyone up on her toes all the time to meet her target sales. But she is hard working, charming, disarming, the recipe that is needed to get to the top.
While reaping her achievements as divisional rookie sales agent in 2010 and a million dollar round table awardee, the most prestigious award that the leading Philippine insurance company could give, Petite believes Boracay is the best place where she could reward herself with complete relaxation.
“I deserve this beautiful break in Boracay. The scenery and food are great here,” she beams.
Nobody can dispute her. All throughout the year, local and foreign guests visit the island like a pilgrimage of sorts.
Its powdery white sand beach which stretches four kilometers, is simply exhilarating. Boracay’s world-famous cool sand is composed of billions of crashed corals that have built up in the shores of the island, hence no matter how fiercely the tropical sun shines, your feet will continue to feel the cool sand.
From Boracay, one can see the magnificent sun rising and setting all throughout the year. It simply is magnificent. Petite feels like she has touched based with her soul when in Boracay, “I will come back here over and over again.”
