Many businesses and industries have ceased operations in the Philippines since the epidemic began in March 2020, in order to accommodate the country’s lockdown. It affects not only enterprises, but even celebrities, who are struggling to cope with the epidemic because some of them have no project to offer their businesses.
In this article, I’ll discuss several celebrities who have gone into business as a result of the pandemic and help those who have lost their employment as a result of the virus. As we deal with the pandemic at home, let us imitate their example and be more constructive rather than self-destructive.
5 media personalities who have started enterprises in the midst of the pandemic:
Aiko Melendez is a former politician and Filipina actress. The “Prima Donna” is her current endeavor. Aiko has been raising donations for various projects and hospitals since the pandemic began. That’s why she started an Instagram account called @gadgetsallinone to help people in her own unique way. She makes a small profit on her devices and sells them to frontline workers and OFWs. The antivirus necklace, according to Aiko, is her biggest seller. If her business takes off, she plans to give away free electronics to frontline employees.
She further notes that, while this business will not make her a billionaire, it will serve as a platform for her to aid others during this pandemic. She also has a new online selling website where you can shop for almost everything.
