"If you’re ever looking for some tips and tricks on how to make money, then this book is for you. Love At First Sale talks about how you can transform a small amount of money into a six-figure business."

- When In Manila

I started my company almost 5 years ago fresh out of college, with no capital and no experience.

But by going against common beliefs of starting a business, I’ve built a business that makes over PHP4M a year. All without doing a business loan, getting investors, or marketing ourselves.

Here's what I'll be sharing in my book:

01

Embrace Naivety

Naive is good. Being naive helps you explore ideas that haven't been done before. You're not weighed down by preconceived notions of how a business should work.

02

Validate Your Business Without Spending

Spending money without a validated idea is a recipe for disaster. I break down ways on how to test out your idea with spending a single cent.

03

Break Down Big Goals

Most people get overwhelmed at where they want to be. Building a business from scratch might seem scary. Breaking down your goals into bite-sized pieces helps you get closer to where you want to be.

04

Work With What You're Good At

There's no need to reinvent the wheel. Innovation is overrated. Go back to your roots and find what you're good at.

05

Work On Something That You Love

Building a business is hard. There will be days where you won't want to get up from bed. But by working on something you love, the struggle becomes way easier.

...

And More!
