If diligence is the mother of good luck, it makes sense that good karma succeeds right action. Accordingly, Jhett Tolentino personifies the insight of Benjamin Franklin's instructive aphorism.

His inspirational career (“behind the scenes,” as he likes to point out) anchors on the abiding tenet of managing opportunity with painstaking research.
