AT MANILA – Vice Ganda is the classic example of someone who did everything to help his family rise financially.
Coming from humble beginnings, the comedian grabbed every opportunity to make money for his family.
And now, he is one of the highest paid celebrities in the country, appearing on top-rating shows and box office hits.
In the latest video blog of host Bianca Gonzalez, Vice Ganda shared some tips on how people can more effectively help their families in terms of finances.
He stressed the importance of building up one’s own savings before extending a helping hand: “I built myself first before I was able to build my own family. Kasi kung wala akong strength, hindi ko maishe-share ‘yung strength na ‘yun.”
“Pinalakas ko ‘yung sarili ko para mapalakas ko din ‘yung ibang tao. Kasi kung pare-pareho kaming mahihina, hindi rin kami magtatagumpay,” he added. “Kasi kung wala ka namang isha-share, wala, wala talaga.”
He also advised people to “work doubly hard,” saying that money will not come to those who do nothing but complain about their situation.
“Ginawa ko ‘yun. Ang dami kong ginawa… Kasi ‘yung iba talaga wala namang ginagawa, nagrereklamo lang,” he said. “Kailangan mas matalino ka. Humanap ka ng maraming, maraming oportunidad at kunin mo lahat ‘yun.”
“Hindi puwedeng ito lang naman ang in-exert mo, tapos nagtatanong ka kung bakit ito lang ang meron ka.”
“I want to save money but I want to help my family, too.” Masaya si Miss Breadwinner na nakakatulong siya sa gastusin ng pamilya, pero nag-aalala din siya sa future niya dahil wala pa siyang ipon. The phenomenal human being that is Vice Ganda, who worked hard and long for everything he has achieved now, shares one quotable quote after another that we can all learn from.
