Filipinos should learn about entrepreneurship

Alabang South Station Terminal. -"I was working for somebody else for years when I realized I was just making someone else rich," he said in Filipino. "Kaya naisipan naming magbukas ng negosyo (So we decided to start our own business)."
He now sells pancakes in one of the streets of Alabang, not too far from the fire station. Just to be sure "we have additional income, we also sell some beauty products and health and wellness stuff. Lahat na puwede pasukan, pasukin na (Everything that could be profitable, sell)," he laughed.

"Is it harder, working like this as opposed to working in the office?" he was asked.
"Minsan, oo (At times, yes). But I'm not complaining. Because this one is already mine. So everything I do is for me."

And then, while turning the pancakes after stuffing them with cheese and/or ube (purple yam), he added: "Sa Pilipinas kasi, hindi tayo tinuturuan mag-negosyo. Sinasabi sa atin na mag-aral ka para maging empleyado ka. Mali 'yan. Dapat matuto ang mga Pilipino paano magkaroon ng sarili nilang negosyo (In the Philippines, people are not taught how to start a business. We are told we should study to become good employees. This is wrong. Filipinos should learn about entrepreneurship)."
