Rising Above Adversity: A Story of Strength, Growth, and Entrepreneurial Success

“Naku! Wala pa akong work experience, pa’no na ‘to?!” “Cellphone lang ang gamit ko, pa’no ako makakapag-trabaho nang maayos?”

Meet our heroine for this episode, a former Starbucks employee, na cellphone lang ang gamit, walang work experience (on the niche that she’s in), when she started freelancing. At kung paano at bakit siya nagsimulang magfreelancing? Tara na at alamin.

From being fresh na fresh from college as a business administration graduate, at ready na sumabak sa corporate, she suddenly became a single mom, which she has eventually turned into an opportunity. She then discovered freelancing, which has been her stepping stone to being the entrepreneur that she is today.

From being a freelancer, and then agency owner, earning more than enough for herself and her daughter, an entrepreneur was born out of… boredom! And can you imagine that all of her experiences happened in just 5 years??
