Advertising executive turned book author Michael “Myke” P. Celis finally launched his first book entitled “100 Life Lessons for Success: Shout outs for one’s sensibilities. A compilation of his favorite personal shout outs on his Facebook page, the book aims to give anyone (and everyone) who needs positivity a daily dose of good vibes through feel good and highly amusing (and sometimes controversial) quotes. Perfect for those who want to start their day right, those who want a change in their perspective or simply for those who need a breather from their daily routine. A must-have for people always on the go to serve as a gentle reminder that with positive thinking, life gets better.
Myke Celis never did imagine himself having his own book published. Even though he used to be a full-time shoe blogger (pairfectaffair.blogspot.com) and a contributing writer for Code Red Magazine, coming out with his own book was far from his original plan.
He was already happy doing a bunch of things which keep his day (and sometimes night) schedules full to the brim: Crafting integrated marketing campaigns while handling his own advertising, events and casting agency called PerCX (www.percx.com.ph), teaching advertising subjects on the side for the Masters in Marketing Communications in De La Salle University Manila, running his own toy dog breeding business (ToyPups) and his trading business focusing on selling collectible toys and other items (Mykreativbiz). When he has free time, he also engages in hosting and training and obliges to speaking engagements concerning advertising, marketing or self-improvement.
Amidst his busy schedule though, being the always optimistic guy that he is, he continued to post feel-good thoughts on his Facebook page. Gaining a lot of followers who look forward to his daily inspirational posts, he got convinced to come up with his own compilation after much prodding from his subscribers. So when his current publisher, Lifebooks , took interest in his posts, the rest they say, is history.
Published by Lifebooks, “100 Life Lessons for Success” is now available in all branches of National Bookstore (under self-help and inspirational), Powerbooks, and Fully Booked nationwide.
