The founders of JC Premiere, President & CEO Jonathan So and Vice President & CFO Carlito Macadangdang

“Everybody be man enough to stand your ground and make a choice.”

This statement embodies the humble beginnings of JC Premiere’s founders, President & CEO Jonathan So and Vice President & CFO Carlito Macadangdang. The two franchise leaders spearheaded the company's first ONE% Masterclass last June 8 at the Samsung Hall in SM Aura, Taguig City. They imparted lessons to JC Premiere’s leaders, coaches, and authorized wholesalers. 

Macadangdang recalled how they were ignored by the people to whom they first introduced their siomai. He said they turned this setback as a a motivation to succeed and grow their business. The CFO also shared that he used to work at his father’s motorcycle business. Being young and aggressive, he knew that he wanted something big. With hard work and perseverance, the two longtime friends were able to grow JC Premiere and the House of Franchise.

In his speech, Macadangdang shared the struggles of working for his father's motorcycle business.

As this does not happen overnight, Macadangdang said that getting into this success took 18 years or half of their lifetime and it’s a continuous process. “Ang lahat ng mahirap pag paulit ulit mo ginagawa magiging mabilis.” From nobody to somebody, he imparts how the business evolved and was able to help a lot of people.

Leaders, coaches, and authorized wholesalers cheered for the speakers at the ONE% Masterclass.

Meanwhile, So started his speech with, “Good night and let’s go home,” an uncanny quip that easily captured the audience’s attention. JC Premiere’s CEO imparted the importance of the proper handling of finances for both business and the future — to know how to differentiate needs from wants. Having dogs during his younger years, he realized the responsibility of being a dog owner. So decided to let go of his dogs. “Kapag nagkasakit, masakit din sa bulsa,” he jokingly said.

So imparted his insights on how to prioritize savings for the business and the future.

This was one of his practices on how to get focused and identify his needs, always putting his resources into business as there will always be a profit to look forward to. Through proper savings and financial management, the success of JC Premiere was attained.

The night was a success and audience are grateful for being a part of the One% Masterclass

One of the event highlights was when Macadangdang sold a bag for a certain amount. Jean Batcho Urquiolo, an Eralista Leader, was able to buy it and, to her surprise, a special gift was inside. It was a lesson that taking a risk will always have incredible results as long as you persevere and trust in your decisions.

For audiences who have been a part of ONE% Masterclass, they have nothing but gratitude to their real-life superheroes, the franchise kings, So and Macadangdang who always have their backs since day one.
