Alden Richards is known for being an actor and a businessman at the same time.
the Kapuso heartthrob is currently a franchise owner of a McDonald's branch and a co-partner of Concha's Garden Cafe.
Despite these achievements, Alden openly revealed that he also experienced struggles, particularly in the financial aspect, when he was just starting his business.
As reported by GMA News, authored by Felix Ilaya, Alden said that he took risk in investing almost all of his money into his food business.
"Since hindi pa ganoon kalaki 'yung capital ko in terms of money, talagang binuhos ko lahat, so medyo I almost went to zero when I entered the food business. Pero you just have to be patient and work hard for it."
“Mahirap 'yon especially sa mga tao na nasanay na may pera--you have to get used to your bank account na walang laman when you start a business.
"That's what happened to me before, anxieties, paano kung walang trabaho, paano kung hindi mag-work 'yung restaurant?"
On the other hand, Alden just remained faithful and determined to make his ventures successful.
"But you just really have to be faithful to the Lord, to your business, to your skills, and to the people that you trust."
He also shared some tips such as trusting the right people who could help him especially when he is busy with his acting career.
"The key is [having] good people behind your back, people you can trust, people you can leave everything to them, na kahit iwan mo sa kanila, mababalik at mababalikan mo pa rin."
