Some celebrities do not only rely on their acting gigs for earnings. Some of them invest in farming, land, and even business. Take Zeus Collins, for example; he and his fiancee now own Japanese food kiosks with over 43 branches. And guess what? They only started with ₱50,000 capital.
The hashtag member was one of the many affected by the pandemic. On a local news and lifestyle blog, Zeus shared that he only had ₱50,000 left from his savings. He didn’t think that the pandemic would last for a few years. He also expressed how he had mouths to feed, such as his mom and siblings.
Zeus told himself that he needed to do something about his money. That’s when his fiancee, Pauline Redondo, suggested starting a food business. Zeus and Pauline decided to launch two Japanese food businesses such as Ta Ramen Na, last April 2021. They then found Le Katsu MNL after three months.
Zeus and his fiancee felt very blessed to be able to start two Japanese business concepts. Now, they have over 43 branches in different locations, such as Fairview, Araneta Farmers Cubao, and Puregold Balintawak, by January 2023.
Zeus and his fiancee prove that venturing into the business goes a long way. With only ₱50,000 investment, they could turn their lives around. They also demonstrate that everyone can become an entrepreneur if they are hands-on with their business and projects.
