What is your background like?
My dream of becoming a policeman–to serve and protect my beloved Philippines–was fulfilled in 2011 up to the present. I thought achieving my dream would be enough, until I started to raise my own family and it suddenly changed my perspective. I realised that I want freedom; time, and financial freedom for my family.
What is your motivation in life?
My greatest motivation in life is time. We can’t control the ticking of time, but I am very sure that we can control and determine our destiny. Destiny lies in our hands, and it depends on how we use our time. I will never let the years pass without changes in my life. I am unstoppable in achieving my goals.
“I will never let the years pass without changes in my life.”
What have been the biggest challenges?
Work stability is not a guarantee for financial success. I was in debt to a lot of lending companies, and, as a policeman, it has been hard for me to achieve my goals. But I always find ways to make ends meet. Doing Crowd1 part- time but full-time at heart, whatever it takes, I do because I am 100% sure I will succeed.
If you could coach your younger self, what would you tell them?
Compensate against your time, and you will regret it. Invest your time wisely in achieving your goals.
Choose a superpower, and why?
I want to have the power of time travel. Time passed, and there were so many things we wanted to do but didn’t. This causes regret and disappointment. But with time travel, we are able to go back to the past and do what we wanted, and there will be no regrets or disappointment. That is why, because there is no time travel, we must make the most of the time now. Whatever it takes, just do it now!
