I earned mine from a combination of running a home-based dot com and playing the stock market.

local stocks lang. Yung lang drawback ng stock market natin. Limited lang issues na pwede mo trade actively. Some stocks are illiquid (meaning low volume, or not traded at all).

WOW! My hats off to you, young padouan! All my life I have been in and out fo businesses but nothing really gave me signifcant successes and eventually, they jsut died down. Frankly, because they are something I don't really like doing. I'm more inclined to e-commerce type of biz but at this point I don't know where to start. Do you know of any trainings or seminars online or per country basis where I can avail of this learning sessions?

I read something about it a couple of years ago about a very sucessful e-commerce entrepreneur in Singapore but soemhow I can't find his website anymore. What do you trade by the way?

your adviswe will be deeply valued.. :) :)

Well it's really simple... I noticed that alot of Kiwis are obese and overweight. Having gained weight myself when I moved to New Zealand, I tried sooo many diets to lose weight but none of them were effective enough. After alot of trials, I finally managed to formulate the perfect one and now I'm selling it :)

There's no tips I can give you, only that you have to see everything as an opportunity. I started with buying second hand goods and sellign them on ebay (of course the people know its second hand as well).. now im making mega bucks :P just earned 400 bucks today.. which is like 18,000 pesos :P

Can you live off less than US$20,000 a year in New Zealand? But since you're only 18, you probably live with your parents so that would make good spending money.

1st million? I got it in one shot: saved all of my stock options while i was working for a big tech company (hence the mtc handle) then, fortunately, exercised all of it just before the tech bust of 2000.

i now invest in the US stock market, although on a much conservative scale. playing the market now involves being a jack of all trades: war watcher, weather man, all that bullshit. but every now and then i still venture on yummy tech stock. like, i got google during its IPO. :)

Hi again!

I'm just posting to let you know that I have earned 400k pesos in just 2 months :) My parents are very proud (especially my mum coz I'm earning the same amount she earned back in the Phils and to think I'm just 19 lang)!! :) Just bought them a huge Plasma TV and other luxuries of life. Anyhow, anyone who can help me by buying stuffs from the Phils and export it here in NZ? I would like to buy clothes, and stuffs like that. Kasi mahal dito sa NZ and I'm thinking of setting up my own online shop :)

Cheers and goodluck satin lahat :) FILIPINO RULES :D

a month and a half ago, you said you were earning $600 -$1500 per week. now you're saying you earned 400K pesos in just two months. seems to me like your math is a bit off :blink:
how long have you been in business? have you actually earned that million or was it a projection? nevertheless, hope your business prospers :)

just curious, but did you also mean that your mom was making 200K pesos per month when she worked in the philippines? with that amount (and assuming your dad also worked) your family income looked to be a lot more than that of the average filipino family. what compelled you to move to NZ?

Good catch Eagleyes..FUZZY MATH Maybe? You have a very sharp eyes..just fitting with your name.
200K a month is more than what an average white collar worker makes in the U.S.. If I was making 200K a month in PI, I don't think I would have left the Philippines. Peace..have a good one shipmate.

well that 400K pesos for 2 months is still within her $600 - $1500 per week range; another thing to consider is if she's speaking in terms of US$ or NZ$. whatever the case may be, i hope her business ventures continue to grow :)

Hi guys, the income my business gets isnt always the same. There were weeks that it says I earned 1500, while sometimes I earn 2000 sometimes 800... so it's not really constant. However, here's how much money went in my bank account (serious savers acct) - $6919.58 (round about 240 diets sold) (262,944 pesos)

and for my checking access account (teriary package that I was using before opening my serious savers account for all business transactions)-
$4503.45(round about 160 diets sold) (166,627.65 pesos)

roughly around 2 1/2 months (400 diets sold in 10 weeks, so that's 40 diets a week)
= 429,571.65

It's really personal but since I'm the one who opened the topic then I guess it should be fine. My mom worked as the HSBC manager in Ayala, so she earned quite well. We left the Philippines when she reached her 30-year mark as an employee for HSBC. In other words, we left when she retired. We chose NZ coz we went here for a holiday before, and we absolutely loved it because it's peaceful and alot of our family friends are here.

Sorry for not explaining how my income really is like :) If anyon's interested to be my business partner, in regards to this new business I'm planning to open, kidnly pm me with the subject "expression of interest for business partnership"
