If you're still thinking or waiting for the right time to build your own business, here's the answer: The right time is when you start taking action—that is the first step. Think of your business as a car: Your passion acts as fuel, but the vehicle won't start until you actually step on the gas pedal and control the steering wheel! 

A good example of one who takes massive action is Happy Skin's co-founder, Rissa Mananquil Trillo. She never stopped until she came out with a local beauty brand that caters to the specific needs of Pinays.

She also came out with a book, Read My Lips, where she discussed her journey of building the now successful beauty brand Happy Skin. She detailed the initial challenges, plus she shared tips on how you can be your own boss. From the business processes to good leadership, the book has got everything an entrepreneur needs to know. Consider it your starter pack in building your biz!


"The starting point is always the hardest for most people—when to get that business idea going. Sometimes it takes a leap of faith and you just need to do it. You have to be a confident person to throw your brand out there. Makeup was second nature to me because of my many years in the beauty industry. I’ve also always loved writing," Rissa explained.

You can purchase the book at the Manila International Online Book Fair. The best part is by purchasing this book, you can get a chance to win an Asian Institute of Management (AIM) Online Business Course "Transitioning to Digital & How to Get Started Online Program: Making Your Business Just a Few Clicks Away". This is worth P25,000, BTW! Stephanie B. Guerrero, a faculty member at AIM who earned her MBA from Harvard Business School, will teach the course.

Head to the Manila International Online Book Fair to order the book. You are eligible for the giveaway when you purchase it from November 24 to November 30 (6 p.m.). The winner will be announced on November 30 (8 p.m.). on Summit Books' and Rissa's social media accounts. The winner will also be notified via email.
