Toni and Alex’s business manifesto

Sure, it’s fun for sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga growing their business together but it comes with a disadvantage as well.

Toni shared that on “Magandang Buhay” today, September 18, revealing that they debate and discuss a lot of things regarding their business as sisters.

“We get too personal which is not good when it comes to business.” She explained, “Because business should be full business talaga. Personal, because magkapatid kami. Iba ‘yung approach namin, mas iba kami mag-away, magdiskusyon.”

But the good side of that is: “There’s always someone to look after you.”

Putting up a business is always risky. So for everyone else planning to take this path, Toni has this friendly reminder:

“Ang simple lang natutunan ko. Tiyaga, perseverance, and the concept of never giving up. Kasi naalala ko marami akong na-host na anniversary, ng mga big companies, ang laging sinasabi nila, ang key to success nila hindi sila tumigil. Maraming haharaping challenges, maraming failures, pero ‘pag hindi ka tumigil, kahit anong gawin mo, hindi ka nag-give up, sooner or later maabot mo ‘yung pangarap mo. Basta naniniwala ka sa isang bagay, alam mong ito ‘yung destiny mo, alam mong ito ang binigay ng Diyos para sa’yo, ‘wag mong susukuan ‘yung pangarap mo.”

Alex, on the other hand, wants people to realize why starting small isn’t a bad thing.

“It’s okay na to start small. Kasi mas maganda na papalaki gradual, kesa doon sa malaki tapos biglang ‘di mo alam. Mas maganda ‘yung gradual ‘yung ano sa’yo, by the merit, kahit sa pag-aartista. Para nalalaman mo ‘yung nava-value mo, para ‘pag na-bless ka na ng malaki, alam mo na kung paano i-handle,” she said.

Toni and Alex have a milk tea business with their partners and friends from their hometown Taytay, Rizal.
