Is it possible to start your business this year?

Live the life you’ve imagined.

This has been the mantra of The Wealthy Pinay since the beginning. For more than a year, I keep on telling you to dream, believe and take lots of actions.

For so many months, I consistently share blog posts and videos that hopefully will encourage and inspire you to figure out that ‘freedom’ that most people aspire.

By now, I’m expecting that there’s significant progress with your life. Either you got promoted, increased your savings or something great had happened. I won’t be surprised because I know how powerful it is to have someone cheering you on and keeping your spirit high.

In my high school yearbook, I mentioned that my dream is to be a teacher. After college, my first regular job is actually a college instructor. How amazing, right? 
But soon I realized, I don’t have a passion for teaching. It’s not what I’m called to do.

Fast forward to 15 years later, I am actually teaching again. But instead of data programming and information science, I’m teaching women on how they can be wealthy. I’m teaching about money mindset and business marketing because I realized this is what I’m good at. 

So yeah, my high school yearbook turned out to be true.

Do you know what else is true? That I wasn’t born an entrepreneur. I didn’t spend my childhood selling yema or candies in school. I’m shy to talk to people and no one will ever think that I’ll be doing what I’m doing right now.

I spent my adult life working just like what everybody is doing. This is what’s expected of us, right? Graduate from college, find a decent job, get married, have kids, send kids to college, and hope that our kids can support us when we’re old.

But after the ‘have kids’ part, I aspire for more. I want my children to have an option to start their business and not just assume the role of an employee. I wanted to have my own car, own house, and lots of savings in my bank account. I wanted my parents to experience travelling and give them a good life. I started dreaming.

Unfortunately, those dreams didn’t materialize. After more than 10 years of being an OFW, nothing happened. Sure, there might be few nice things here and there but you can’t consider that as being wealthy. 

Until in 2015.

I didn’t win the lottery. I didn’t join any networking. I didn’t become smarter or more ‘blessed’. 

The only thing that changed is I took ACTION. I wanted a lot of things to happen but I’m not actively working on achieving them. In my mind I’m thinking, “Once I’m less busy, I’ll do that.” “I’ll start saving once my income increases.” “I will start a business when I have enough money.”

Everybody wants MORE. More money, more success, more freedom. But how come when an opportunity or an idea to achieve this ‘MORE’ presented itself, we hesitate? 

I think we know what needs to be done. We know that we need to take action, we need to learn a few things, we need to have courage. WE ALL KNOW THAT.

The problem is we are overwhelmed. 
– I don’t know where to start
– Will the idea work?
– What if I fail?

Sabi nila entrepreneurs are born not made so most of the stories we hear are successful people who started doing their stuff since childhood. So parang naiisip natin, “Well, do I have it in me to run a highly profitable businessBaka delusional lang ako.

  • Lifestyle mogul Martha Stewart built her first business (catering) in her mid-thirties. She was nearly fifty before signing a deal to develop the Martha Stewart Living magazine. 
  • Vera Wang did not even begin designing clothes professionally until the age of 39. Before that age, Wang was a fashion journalist. 
  • Reid Hoffman founded LinkedIn at the ripe old age of 35. While Hoffman began his professional life in academia, he soon decided that entrepreneurship held up more opportunities to change the world.

I can give you more examples but you get the drift. Starting a business doesn’t need to start when you’re 20 or 30. You can do it in your 40s, 50s, heck even when you’re retired. I can imagine the wisdom of a 70-year-old and how I’ll pay attention once they share everything they’ve learned about life, their career, their business. A retired goldsmith can start a business by teaching newbie goldsmiths about the trade and tricks of the job. Can you imagine being a mentor and at the same time earning from it??

How I wish I can convince you right here and now that the life you want is within your reach. It’s so near that I can already smell it. But I know that the decision to make a change starts from you. 

You might have a best friend who keeps on making bad decisions with men and your advices are always just thrown out of the window. She said she’d learned her lesson but after a few months, she’s back with the same douche dude. I understand that you’re frustrated because you care and wants her to be truly happy but how can you do it when she’s not helping herself?

I can only tell you so much but in the end, it’s your decision. I only hope you’ll start sooner. I have mentees who now have their businesses and life has changed drastically 100x better (their words) and it’s because they took actions and followed my formula step-by-step.  

Enter your email and watch the final video of a 3-part series where I teach you how to have a business that earns 100k monthly.

It’s your time and you’re ready for the next step.

Live The Life and Business You Have Imagined!
