Pinoy Millionaire Series: Success Story of A Nurse

I want to share with you real-life stories of people that I got to know personally last year. With all the negativity we can watch, see, and hear on various media, it is really a breather to find stories that can motivate us to be a better person. 

I have been bugging these people for so many months into having a quick "interview" on how they got to be where they are. 

So, here is the first of my Pinoy Millionaire Series. :)

3. What used to be your perspective in life when it comes to becoming successful financially

10. What are some tips that you can give to aspiring millionaires?

End of Interview.

  1. Being a nurse is not easy. You really have to be passionate with the job and call yourself successful when you are happy with the working environment every day amidst the struggles.

  2. Wow I am so inspired by her success! What an amazing lady!

  3. I have the highest, utmost respect for nurses. I have three cousins who joined the nursing professions and I have not seen them for more than a decade. I am glad that you started this blog and let the world know how lucky people are to have nurses like you to take care of us.

  4. Well, I think having "plenty of ambition" is just one of the things to have to be successful. There should also be plenty of drive and plenty of action. Otherwise, it will just be building castles in the air.

  5. I've tried MLM before and my cousin is a member of AIM Global. Heard he's doing good,too. Nice story!

  6. Thanks for sharing her story! Indeed very inspiring to everyone and to women out there. I've tried a lot of MLM companies before and she's right, not all people get to be successful in the industry. Maybe I will do great in other things :)

    1. Hi Genzel :) Thanks for visiting this post. Glad you got inspired with her story. It takes courage, persistence, and determination to succeed in any endeavor. We get to become successful in blogging because of persistence. If we do not get successful at first, we can always find help through a mentor :)
