New year, new venture.

One of my new year resolutions is to start a new venture. I am looking into opening a small business, possibly a food cart business somewhere in the city. I am targeting a spot in a public school nearby. I am already talking to an aunt who will become my business partner, a former colleague who will act as my external accountant and auditor, and a younger cousin who will be the one to man my food cart. It is not an easy process because there are permits to secure while sticking to the budget I made but I am doing my best to make it happen as soon as possible.

I am actually very inspired by a neighbor’s story. He was online checking some supplies at and it hit him that he wanted to open his own hardware store. He started small, very much like a sari-sari store but stocked with hardware supplies. And then slowly he expanded as income poured in.

I would like to do the same. Slowly expand this new venture into a mini empire of my own.
