Who runs the world? 8 Pinaypreneurs take to IG to show you how to slay it

Published Mar 24, 2022 7:00 pm

On International Women’s Month, Globe celebrates the digital trailblazers who paved the way for women to step out of the confines of the limited roles assigned to them. Women can now choose the many interests they want to pursue, including entrepreneurship. 

Meet the eight Pinaypreneurs who worked hard to carve a path toward success, no matter what challenges they face. They have, as women often do, served as inspiration and helped guide other aspiring Pinaypreneurs to do the same.

Now, more than ever, the conditions are right for women to take that leap and launch a business—and be a badass at it!

These influencers have taken to Instagram to share how it is to be a PinayPreneur, the ups and downs of it all—but mostly, the big and small wins that reward them along the way. They also celebrate and encourage all empowered women to take that important first step to being Pinaypreneurs.

Put a finger down to say yes!

As these Pinaypreneurs take the Put a Finger Down challenge (put a finger down to say “yes”), they share honest answers about their experiences and the mistakes they learned from.

In what she calls the “Food Business Edition” of the challenge, Maxine Sanz, chief marketing officer of Raspberry Kitchen Group and Muchi Group, takes from her extensive experience in starting and nurturing several cloud kitchen concepts.

She talks about the reality of small business owners having to take on different roles to keep the business going, and having to contend with family and friends asking for discounts, or even influencers asking for freebies.

Rizza Lana-Sebastian, CEO of IO Innovative Outcomes Corp. (Lana PH, Mink PH, Talaala, Ambush Clothing, and Whim Manila), gets real for a “Business Mistakes Edition” of the IG challenge. She shares some of her own mistakes, and encourages other entrepreneurs to learn from them.

Rizza also emphasizes how useful it is to attend free webinars so they can listen to insights and advice from other entrepreneurs.

Having overcome the challenges of launching a food business during the pandemic, Shek Bangsil, managing director of 128 Shabuniku shares her “hugot” in her very own “F&B Edition.” Shek shares how others like her can get inspired by other Pinaypreneurs.

A day in the life of a Pinaypreneur

Other multi-hyphenate Pinaypreneurs on IG share a day in their lives to show just how much time management is involved in running their businesses.

Zara Carbonell, PR specialist, social media marketer, digital startup mentor, beauty queen, and author of Lost You, Found Me, contracts her full day's agenda into a few seconds to give us an idea of how busy she can get, but shows some self-love by signing up for a Globe Business webinar.

Online media personality Danah Gutierrez, who is also a plus-sized model, PR manager, body positivity advocate and speaker, has this to say through her day-in-the-life sneak peek: “Do the hustle, enjoy the bustle, and do something for your self-improvement, too.”

Real talk, good advice

When it comes to business tips and productivity hacks, Pinaypreneurs have the most clever advice.

Saudade shop owner Kat Toledo offers a glimpse of her journey and the passion that fuels the pursuit of her business goals. Being in constant touch with artisans and suppliers via various communication tools helps her close deals and share her product setups online.

Miakka Lim, media personality and a certified image consultant, seeks to inspire and empower fellow Pinaypreneurs by sharing some of the advice she has received (and which have proven helpful) along the way. Her own advice: be classy, sassy, and a bit badass-y!
