Know more about Jonathan Tinoco

          Hello, my name is Jonathan Tinoco. I was Born on October 19, 1991. I am the eldest of 4 in our family. My father died when I was 6. Being the eldest in our family, I was brought up that I should be the next father in our family despite that my mother is a single mom.


          My mom was a ver clever woman. Knowing that she need to support 2 sons and 2 daughters, she opened up a buy and sell clothing shop way back year 2001. She also started to sell food supplements like organic coffees, juices and other health products. I didn’t know that she’s good in selling until I saw her doing it. She’s a very persuasive woman and she can instantly attract customers within a 3-minute conversation. I saw all her selling skills and abilities. She can sell everything that she got with her.


          The same year, I asked my mom if I can also sell so I can buy my toys and foods. That was my only motivation that’s why I wanted to sell. So my mom gave me a box of coffees. It was my first product that Im going to sell. I didn’t know how I’m going to sell it but all I know is that I know its a coffee, and the price of it. I first approached my relatives and luckily, they’re all buying not because of the product, but because I’m a cute little boy. I started knocking all the doors in our neighbors and they’re also buying not because of the product, but because of me. The box of coffee cost P300 and for every box, my profit is P100. Then eventually I realized that if this will going to happen everyday and If sell 10boxes a day, I’m going to be one of the riches kid in the world. That’s a P1000 profit a day! Way back then, it was a huge money.


          A company doctor, which is also part  of that company noticed what I’m doing. He’s very active participating in radio guesting so he featured me at RMN Manila Radio Station as the “Youngest Entrepreneur”.


          Moving forward, when I was an elementary student, I need to stop selling cos I need to focus on my schooling since my Auntie from Japan who supports all my needs want me to become an honor student. I graduated in elementary way back 2005 and I graduated in high school in 2008 and got into college the same year.


          Year 2009, i stopped schooling due to the 2008-09 financial crisis. So I worked as an employee at McDonalds. While working, one of my co-worker invited me to a network marketing seminar. I was inspired by the speakers specially by those top achievers and thinking that Im going to achieve the same reward. So I joined the company and few months after, I decided to quit my job knowing that I’m not going achieve the dreams that I wanted.


          From 2009 - 2011, I worked so hard, attended the team buildings and all the trainings and seminars traveling from San Pedro Laguna to Ortigas Pasig weekly, and unluckily, for 2 years, nothing happened. I didn’t stop, and quitting is not my option. I continued my journey talking to more people, doing prospecting day and night, giving flyers wherever I go and approaching strangers to sell my products and recruiting them to join my team. Rejection is my breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was a hard-worker salesman. My Dreams are my motivation. I work damn hard day and night every single day just to survive without knowing what is going to happen in my life the following day. I trained myself that I’m not gonna eat and sleep until i reach my daily target, talking, presenting my business to a minimum of 3 strangers a day and selling my products a day.


          For almost 2 years, my result was suck, my sales income was only P1,500 a week (thats around $30). Most of the time, I need to walk 10 kilometers just to meet my clients. I will also never forget those years that my daily budget is only P10 - P15. Sometimes, I asked myself if am I doing things right. Few months after, our company shut down not knowing that I’m going to do next. But the skills and habits that I developed are still inside of me. I need to look for another income opportunity.


          July of 2011, I joined another networking marketing company. I applied all the skills and knowledge that I’ve learned from the past. I committed myself that whatever it takes, I will push myself beyond the limitations and I committed myself that I WILL SUCCEED!


          Finally, December of 2011, after 5 months of hard work, everything started to change. All my efforts has been rewarded. I started to earn P20,000 a week, P50,000 a week to even P200,000 a week. I was very proud back then. I proved to myself that all things are possible. But another storm has arrived. March of 2012, our company shut down. All my dreams disappeared. Its like a bubble. I was devastated. My income stop. I spend all my savings. I have nothing left in my bank account. I am broke and have debts to pay.


          I need to look for another opportunity. 2013, I entered another network marketing company. I did the same thing, applied the same skills, succeeded. But 2015, the company shut down again. “What a miserable life I had.”, I said. The same year, I realized that nothing is happening to what I am doing so I decided to end my business and entrepreneurship career.


          March of 2015, me and my family decided to move abroad to find our luck. My mom sold her house and use the money as our starting fund to start a new life outside the Philippines knowing that we could easily recover from downfalls. It wasn’t easy for us since we don’t know what are we going to do next exactly and we don’t know how to start. I applied a job, started to submit resumes from one establishment to another establishment, but no one’s calling me for a job interview. 


          Then one night, while my mom and my sisters were outside our hotel room looking for a restaurant, suddenly there were two guys who accidentally asked my mom for a restaurant location. My mom said that she don’t know since its her first time in Hong Kong and they are also looking for a place to dine. So they’ve decided to look together. Moving forward, they started talk a lot of things and when my mom started to ask, “What are you doing here in Hong Kong?” They responded that they have a cryptocurrency and exchange launching there the same day. And guest what, they are one of the big boss of that company. 


          When my mom returned in the hotel where we are staying, she asked me if I know about cryptocurrency. It’s my first time to heard that. Out of curiosity, i started to search about it. That was the first day I gathered informations about crypto. But honestly, when I first heard about bitcoin or cryptocurrency, I have a doubt about it specially when I heard that this is a kind of money called “VIRTUAL CURRENCY”, a currency that you cannot hold to your hands. But because I want to learn more about it, me and my mom joined a network marketing company who’s into cryptocurrency to learn the foundation of this technology. While I’m on that company, I also look for those people on social media who knew about this.


          Searching the exact informations about Blockchain and Cryptocurrency was very challenging. During those years that I’m searching for right answers, I’ve encountered a lot of difficulties. My first challenge was that no one teach this stuff in my own language which is Tagalog. Most of them are foreigners. The second challenge was some of these people who understand how it works don’t have a SYSTEM. When I asked them some questions, they are just giving a lot of informations that makes my mind overloaded. And the third worst experience was, I found some people who totally understand about it but the problem is that most of them are geeks. They are not socially oriented individuals. They don’t want to share what they knew about it because they don’t really care. That day, I told myself that if no one wants to help me and to guide me, I will do it myself.


But I knew one thing, that time will come, people will easily understand the benefit of this and they will engage to it.


          To share with you my experience, 2015-16 are my worst years. I’ve lost a lot by doing so many mistakes in my trading activities. I remembered the time I created my first bitcoin wallet and transferred coins from a wrong wallet address. I also remembered the first time I created my first crypto trading account because I wanted to learn how the crypto trading works. But It didn’t stops me on reaching my goals. My failures pushes me to do more and to learn more.


          The same year, because I am very excited to learn more about it, I also organized small talks to share the beauty of cryptocurrency to my relatives and friends. I believe that in order for you to deepen your knowledge, you should share what you know to others. But those years, no one believes on what I’m sharing to them because its something new to the public.


          I didn’t stop to what I am teaching and to what I am doing. I look for the best mentors in the same filed. Because of this technology in combination of commitment, courage, determination and my passion, I was able to give myself a time freedom and a financial freedom that everyone dreamed about.


          January of 2017, when I finally understand and succeeded creating successful profitable results because of the methodologies that I learned through a lot of trial and errors, I asked my girlfriend if she will support my advocacy to share my knowledge to others to a bigger mission and vision, to create well-trained discipline long term consistent profitable traders and investors in the volatile world of cryptocurrency and to create new breed of successful entrepreneurs using the power of internet that will contribute to economic growth and development.


          Being an educator, a trainer, a public speaker and an entrepreneur, it wasn’t very easy but because its my passion to share what I’ve learned through my experience, I am very excited to become as an instrument to change peoples lives.


          As a blockchain and cryptocurrency advocate, February of 2017, we created a training company in the Philippines where which people can learn a simple method on how to monetize cryptocurrency. We’ve created different training programs, basic and advance courses so that we can teach and share our knowledge and experience in cryptocurrency trading and investing. We started our seminars from few attendees, from 5 attendees, to hundreds and even thousands of attendees. I have been also invited to local and international conventions as one of the keynote speaker. One of our challenge is that people has a different point of views when it comes to the topic about Money. But those challenges didn’t stops us from getting where we are today. Philippines is a late bloomer country when it comes to technology compare to Japan, US and other countries. But because of the people who trusted us and who became part of our journey, our advocacy have successfully reach thousands of people across the globe.


          Now, we know that we have just started. We have just reached our first year and we are looking forward for a bigger goals. Alone I cannot make it but because of the people who keep supporting and believing us, we can make things bigger and we can achieve things together.
