It’s so influential to see many celebrities venturing into the business world despite their hectic schedules. Although they are already thriving in the field of acting, seeing them explore a new path that involves investments is inspiring, especially when the celebrity is young. For example, one of the country's top actresses, Andrea Brillantes, is the youngest Filipino celebrity CEO.
In her YouTube vlog, Andrea gave a tour of her soon-to-be office. Although it’s still unfinished, the young actress was excited to show her office space.
Andrea expressed how having her own personal space matters to her when working: “I will try my best na makapunta dito every day kung kaya ng schedule, siyempre kailangan ko din ng parang office na kaya ko talagang magtrabaho at magiging at peace ako.”
She felt that her office location is so convenient. Andrea shared, “Yung office namin malapit lang siya sa ABS, so tingin ko after ko mag ABS didiretso ako dito. Like mas kaya ko siya ma-squeeze in sa aking schedule. Mga five minutes away lang siya. Sa traffic, I think eight.”
Despite her busy schedules, she’s very hands-on with her business, especially with the progress of construction. “Kasi ayoko like yung brand ko sabihin lang na nilagyan lang ng pangalan ko or something, kasi sobrang hands-on po talaga ako dito guys, ‘di lang ganito yung makikita niyong clips na nandito ako ngayon. Makikita niyo pa kahit nag-wowork ako sa ibang bansa, very focused pa’rin ako sa brand ko," she said.
The actress admits that part of the reason we see less of her these days is that she’s preparing for the launch. Although Andrea hasn't confirmed what exactly her business will be, we're guessing it will most likely be in line with beauty based on the previous teaser she posted.
Andrea hinted, “Kasi nung sinabi na magiging CEO ako parang ang daming tao na nacurious kung ano kaya ibebenta ko or ano kaya yung business ko. Guys, sobrang lapit na po ng release nito.”
For those who are waiting for the release, Andrea asks for their continuous support. Andrea said: “So ayun nga, ang daming nag-aabang at hintayin niyo lang po.”
She added:“Kahit nasa Thailand ako as in pinapa-travel ko yung ate ko para lang ma-check ko kung kamusta na yung product. Wag kayo mag-alala malapit na tayo.”
Andrea requests for support as she embarks her new business journey to be launched soon. “Hindi ko pa po kasi pwede sabihin, pero please po i-support niyo itong business kong ito at pinaghirapan ko po ito at nung buong team ko ng napakatagal parang more than a year na po ito in the making," she said.
Yay! We *can’t wait* for the launch!
