We have witnessed the rise of the start-up scene drastically taking the Philippines by storm for the last 4-5 years. Question is, are you taking advantage of the wave?
Filipino are all educated to go to school, get good grades, get a good job and go always for security; this has been with the Filipino culture for centuries and has never left our homes. But very recently, Filipinos (especially the young ones) have been starting doing business online and as the e-commerce ecosystem come to life in our country, these online entrepreneurs are pushing the business economy. Some have jobs on the side and some become entrepreneurs full-time and whenever I look at them, watch them… I feel so proud because we are slowly becoming our own bosses instead of employees who would always seek jobs from the foreigners. These online entrepreneurs are slowly changing the way Filipino shop thus making changes in our country’s retail industry.
I remember when I was in high school, my friends would give me and odd stare and would call me crazy whenever I’d talk about business, selling and other things related to entrepreneurship. Nobody understood me. I had bills to pay at a really early age. But now at 2018, if you’re young and you’re not doing business… you are definitely missing out!
