Your Hosts

Kaibigan Connection Co-founder and Moderator Rigel Jones



Rigel Jones is a Business Systems Strategist and creator of the Make Your Bold Move™ Accountability Program. She is a mom of 3 girls who hustled her way to start a business, but eventually got burnt out… Now she helps people get from #teamnosleep to #imakebankwhileIsleep!


Like many families in the Philippines, Rigel grew up with one parent working abroad, while she understood the situation, she didn't realize how big that sacrifice was until she became a parent herself. She comes from a big family, her dad with 10 siblings from Cebu, and her mom with 9 siblings from Makati. She just recently found out that her late grandfather comes from a Native tribe, the Igorot.



Kaibigan Connection Co-founder/Co-Host


Karen Swyszcz is the founder and owner of Makinthebacon. It began as a blog in 2012 and she now provides 1:1 consulting and workshops for small business owners in blogging and social media. She is the instructor at Sheridan College for their blogging and social media courses.


Karen’s parents came from the Philippines separately to Canada and met in Toronto. Her mom and dad are both from Bohol and Leyte, respectively. Her mom is Filipino-Spanish and her dad is part Chinese. Growing up, Karen identified more with Canadian culture vs Filipino culture. A couple of years ago, she decided that it wasn’t too late to become more connected with her Filipino roots.
