Entrepreneurship has been within me since I was a kid. I sell and repair toys for my friends, and I used to buy and sell things that can help me double my money.
Growing up. I started working since I was 12—I was coding websites and offering graphic design services to whoever needs it. It was fun especially when people pay me money for a free slice of pizza and a bottle of Coke.
Fast forward. When my mom died, I held the responsibility to send my siblings to school. I’ve worked on a nine-to-five job when I turned 18 as a data encoder in a government agency in the Philippines. The money I was earning wasn’t enough to sustain my siblings’ tuition fee.
So, I decided to move to another job as a customer service representative. A few months later, I realized that I was unhappy, and there was no opportunity for me to grow. Thus, I tried to find another work.
After few weeks, I managed to get a new job. This time, I worked on a small business as a sales and marketing consultant. It was one of the most amazing work experiences in my life.
