For The Love Of Local Music

My sister and our friends had this pet project of promoting local music. We didn’t have much. It started out as a internet magazine and interviewed a few musicians. We started out having no money, no staff, no support. It was really a labor of love for us that bloomed into this community of music lovers and musicians. We didn’t really expect much but without realizing it, the work that we did gave a small, stagnant industry hope and helped struggling musicians realize that it is possible to reach for the stars.

I was so surprised when my sister reminded me that our magazine, DavaoMusicNation.com is now a year old. I almost can’t believe we made it this far. Considering how Davao Music Nation ¬†started, it’s easy to see why nobody would make it. But we fought back and we thrived because we loved what we were doing and we believed in Filipino talent.

Now, we have partnerships with major music websites, artists, production outfits and regular contributors. We’re still not making any cash from it but we have the respect and support of the local music industry. We achieved what we wanted to do. We put Davao Music on the map and we survived. We did what everyone told us was impossible to do. And the crazy thing about this is we’re still gearing up for more!

MyFlex’Office In Davao City

If you’re a Davao-based WAHM and you want to work outside the house but you don’t want to hang out in a coffee, there’s usually not a lot of options. But did you know that Davao City now has it’s own co-working space right in the middle of the city?

I discovered MyFlex’Office earlier this year along Sta Ana Avenue when I was supposed to cover an event there. I wasn’t able to stay long because of a family emergency but I was able to stay long enough to get a good look of the place and what it had to offer.

It’s a really simple office, with a small conference room, a couch that could serve as a lobby, and open, shared work desks with multiple outlets. They have WiFi, fax machine, copier and a mini pantry with limitless coffee for workers.

I find the P200/day rental fee a little steep but if you’re going to spend that much for coffee anyway, I think this place can be a good alternative since it does come with unlimited coffee, Wifi, and use of office equipment for that day. They have cheaper rates for those who want to rent by the week or monthly but I’m not ready to make that kind of commitment yet (and I can’t afford it).

But overall, I really liked their concept and I’m actually looking forward to working there when my daughter goes to school nearby.

For more information about this place and how to get there, you can visit their website: http://www.myflexoffice.biz/

If you guys know of any alternative workspaces that WAHMs can use, please let me know! If it’s in Davao, I can check it out and feature it here. If not, I’d be more than happy to let you guys write a guest blog here. Until next time!!
