Do you think entrepreneurial spirit can be taught or it’s an innate skill?
As for me, even though I started at an early age, I think it can always be taught and developed.
It was my first time having a mobile phone when I was still in my fourth year in high school. Most of my classmates already have theirs at that time. I feel I was a bit late and missed out a lot but I think it was the best opportunity for me to start a business.
I already have my prospects so I started my loading business, my first business. My parents also own a sari-sari store at that time so I told them that I will sell mobile loads in our neighborhood.

My business is doing well and I was able to save up thousands of pesos. I purchased a new mobile phone and a brand new laptop out of my profit. Doing projects and assignments became easier because of this. I don’t even have to ask for money from my parents to buy materials from my projects and for photocopies of our lectures.
Since buying a book is expensive we just rely on photocopies for our lectures. However, most of our budget goes there. I thought it would be a good opportunity to start a new business. I bought a printer with copier and start a printing and copier business.
Why did I do all this?
Aside from the fact that I see everything as an opportunity for me to do something I always have a deep why. I was born poor and I don’t want to die poor as well.
