McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson are joining the long list of celebrities who are preparing for their future by venturing into business.
McCoy was 25 years old when he started venturing into different investments and businesses. Now at age 27, a father to a 1-year-old baby named Felize, and a partner to Elisse, McCoy is more determined to become a successful entrepreneur.
In a virtual mediacon, the couple appeared to discuss their family life and investments. Elisse admitted that McCoy is always ‘stressed’ at finding other ways to earn aside from showbiz.
She was quoted on a report by Pep saying, “Yan ang ikinaka-stress ni McCoy. Laging kailangan mag-isip pa ng ibang mga gagawin para for safety din namin as a family.”
“Dapat meron kaming back-up plan. Palagi naming pinag-uusapan ang investments, starting a business,” she added.
Like other celebrities, Elisse shared that they understand that showbiz life isn’t permanent and they need to be prepared. Thus, they’re always trying out different businesses.
“Yung current business, dadagdagan, kasi nga alam namin, even if we are both actors at nandito kami sa showbiz industry, hindi naman laging magkakaroon ng opportunities,” Elisse said.
When the pandemic happened and their showbiz jobs stalled, the couple were truly grateful for their businesses. It helped them get through difficult times financially and kept them busy.
“So, habang may time na wala, at least, we have something to do. Yun nga, ang business namin, jewelry and investments sa properties,” Elisse said
The couple launched their jewelry store and named it after their daughter Feliz. On Instagram, Felizia Jewelry shares that its jewelry pieces are pawnable and made of real 18k gold with natural diamonds.
McCoy shared that they wanted to invest in a business that can help support the future of their daughter. He was quoted in a Philstar report saying, “Gusto namin magkaroon ng investement na someday makatulong sa amin at sa pamilya namin, in the future.”
According to McCoy, they learned their entrepreneurial mindset from their parents. He said that the lessons and learnings they got from their parents on how to handle money, savings, and investments kept them going, especially during the pandemic.
He said, “Lagi kong sinasabi, yung mga natutunan namin mula sa mga magulang namin. Ngayon, nag-iipon kami at lalo ngayong pandemic, yung mga natutunan namin sa parents namin, ina-apply namin. Awa ng Diyos, sobrang nakakatuwa.”
Jewelry pieces are also a great business idea if you find a great and trusted supplier. Many Pinoys are fond of jewelry and often consider them as investments that they can pass on to their children.
