One of the rising women entrepreneurs in the country is Dore Villanueva Dimaunahan, a multi-talented millennial who believes that success can be attained with the right attitude, hunger for adventure, and the willingness to learn.
A business graduate whose passion evolved from cars, advocacies, and business, Dimaunahan merged her interests and formed a distinct brand of her own.
Dubbed as a millennial girl boss, Dimaunahan juggles her time in different hats. She is a host and mentor of Go Negosyo’s KMME-MME Online, founder and editor-in-chief of the 2020 advocacy COVID Diaries: A Millennial Collaboration, and the project head of last year’s 18-Day Campaign Violence Against Women, an initiative with the ASEAN Youth Organization. All these were done during the pandemic, which proves how she can still be on top of her game even when in a time of crisis.
Aside from these, Dimaunahan is also a professor of the country’s top universities, such as De La Salle University, Ateneo De Manila University, University of Asia and the Pacific, and most recently, the University of the Philippines.
An open-minded leader that she is, Dimaunahan is best described as transformational and focused, balancing her growth in both personal and professional aspects of life.
Proving that she knows how to expand her knowledge and skills, Dimaunahan also explores other interests outside her work as a business coach. She is a co-host of Mr. Kalakal, a platform on motorcycle content, where she features and learns about riding, road safety, and many others.
When asked by Let’s Ride Philippines, Dore says, “Driving is my relaxation. I love cars, I want to ride a motorcycle and I have plans of restoring more cars.”
Building her brand
On top of all her endeavors, Dimaunahan is honing her craft in the business coaching industry. She uses her educational degree to reach out to more people not only for their businesses but also for their overall personal and professional growth.
She says, “I am in the process of building a brand where I will inspire many through masterclasses, creative videos, flipbooks, and many more exciting digital products for the general public and professionals too.”
Dimaunahan gives consultations and 1:1 coaching, which led to building relationships with former students and many other people who trust the work that she does. She says that her work is a two-way thing—people learn from her and she learns from them in return.
More projects are in store for this girl boss, including shows with V81 Radio Worldwide, webinars with TSA Global Crowdfest, and a stint with Carl Balita Review Center, as one of the rosters of resource speakers for the CPALE, as a Certified Management Accountant.”
On work, life, and faith
Despite juggling different things at once, Dimaunahan knows the key to stay on top of her game—work-life balance.
“If you want to accomplish something, you will make time for it, most especially during work-from-home,” she says.
She efficiently divides her days into hours and makes sure that she has the time for her projects, classes, hosting and writing stints, and even studying.
