One measure of being a true friend is building each other up towards success. In the recent episode of the digital talk show I Feel U hosted by Toni Gonzaga, four friends share how they put up and manage their quarantine-born business.
Rose Ann Alipio, Paula Hernandez, Princess Lapena, Yvette Buenaventura have been friends since their high school days. They met by joining the same chorale organization. After graduation, the group continued to sing for the choir, thus they sustained the friendship.
Over the years, the four ladies got to know each other deeper. They openly express their sentiments and even secrets, and just tell each other anything under the sun. Their bond crystallized into a solid sisterhood, so much so they started to put up their own business.
They work as call center agents, banking personnel, and catering service owner. But since the lockdown affected their jobs, the bunch thought of ways to recover their income. The sudden changes spawned the friends’ mini business. They sell food products like nuts, watermelon seeds, and chicharon.
They might have different personalities and approach to problems but their friendship serves as the foundation of their new venture. There’s no pressure since they are all friends. Besides, they share the same goal of helping their families survive during this period of crisis.
