Diana Limjoco has won Most Inspiring Entrepreneur for Micro Business for the Province of Batangas, award will be given by Governor Vilma Santos and Mayor Dimacuha at the Batangas Provincial auditorium on Nov. 7th, 2008.  Sponsored by www.gonegosyo.net  here is a little about the organization http://www.gonegosyo.info/content/view/1/6/

Online entrepreneur Diana Limjoco-Pollard was just learning how to make websites in 1998. She started with the www.batangasnow.com website as a form of public service to her home province. Since that start, she has kept the website running. www.batangasnow.com serves to showcase the beauty of Batangas and its people.

Diana is a Filipina American who was raised in the city of Batangas. The Limjoco family and clan is deeply-rooted and well-known in the province of Batangas. Diana's values were also formed by the Batangas culture through her parents and ancestors.

As she developed her skills in website-development, Diana continued to construct multiple websites which she manages and maintains. She has established an online entrepreneurship that was born out of a combination of skills, talents and willingness to work with others in making a successful business over the internet.

Diana, together with her partner and husband Dave Dewbre, has also established Digital Web Group Inc, a corporation of well researched and marketable products, innovative technology, and a flexible work environment. Digital Web Group is now in the process of establishing partnership with a Filipino entrepreneur who sells environment-friendly Electric motor bikes. www.environmentfriendlystore.com

At present, she has recently started www.powerlinked.net , which features different entrepreneurs. As part of her public service, aside from www.batangasnow.com, she also runs a website for Subic.

Diana considers herself as a late bloomer in engaging into her chosen field of business. She started being an online entrepreneur when she was in her 50's. At 60, she is going strong, radiant, and successful in her business endeavors. Thankful for her blessings, she would also like to mentor other potential entrepreneurs.

This entrepreneur is also currently in the process of creating a mentor program for the Digital Web Group. Diana plans to pave the way for young entrepreneurs online.

As a successful online entrepreneur, she has some tips for the young and aspiring: "The best advice I can give is not to give up, to believe in what you are doing. If you can make money doing something you love, all the better. Get the right team together, in which you do not have to micromanage to help with your growth. The idea of "if you want something done right, do it yourself" is perhaps for carpenters, not for trying to grow a sustainable business venture that will last beyond you. If you create an organization and it folds after you are gone, then you have failed to empower people to carry on after you, which is of course my goal in all things I do."
