In the middle of my MBA program, I realized that I was more interested in running a small business, not the study of corporations. They still tickle my interest and that's the reason they're the backdrop of my first novel. I had traveled and stayed in many countries, learned to speak a few of their languages and lived among the locals long enough to be their friends. One thing I found is that human decency is alive and well except not for the unlucky few. Here's hoping it's not too late for them. Call me - 'Pollyanna' or 'one who wears rose-colored glasses' - none of it matters cause that's how I interpret my short time in this world.
The future lies in giving the full force of our existence and creating a world that's fair for humans and maybe, non-humans too. I used to believe in the 'win-win' motto of big corporations and trust them to practice 'what's good for their business would be good for society'; however, recent events have shown that too much wealth changes people especially for those at the top. The need for material niceties tend to grab everyone without realizing they're being grabbed. Greed Is Not A Friend, But An Enemy - all I have to do now is cross-stitch that reminder on a pillow and sleep on a bed stuffed with stacks upon stacks of freshly minted cash. . . jk :)
May there be peace for all of us in our one and only beloved planet EARTH!!
KICKSTARTER campaign for my first book is on hold. I'm hoping to restart it soon. Meanwhile, follow all updates on my Facebook or Twitter.
A BETTER WORLD
After the cosmic explosion of 2045 (CE45) devastated the Earth, corporations ruled the world. Their noble philosophy of serving the common good worked. However, after two centuries, the new generation of wealthy elites created a division between themselves and the other citizens.
One woman was caught in the grip of their power struggle and found herself fighting not only for her own freedom but also for the rest of the world.
