Stop reading that book…

You may have attended entrepreneurship or business seminars.

You have this great idea that perhaps the next Mang Inasal, OLX or even a small business that can help people.

You even love talking with your friends about starting a business.

You have read a lot of books about entrepreneurship and investing.

For now, please stop reading that book (for a while).

I don’t want to offend you.

But consuming a lot of knowledge won’t really help if you are not taking any action.

I am guilty sometimes because I read a lot of books but didn’t apply everything that I’ve learned.

Don’t be one of the “Wantrepreneurs” of this generation

Who is someone wanted to start a business but never take any single action.

Are you waiting for the perfect timing?

I’m sorry ka-Wais, it will never come.

Now is the right time to take action.

If you are waiting for the right time – days, months, years will pass without you noticing it.

Then, it’s too late.

You will still be in the same financial situation where you need to work hard just to pay the bills.

Do you want to be 100% ready and prepared?

I’ll tell you this – you will never be prepared before you launch your business.

There will be a lot of things to do.

But if you will accomplish your tasks little by little, you can achieve what you want.

You just have to start and keep going.

Yes, you may encounter some failures and you can make mistakes but it is part of the process to become successful.

You just have to evaluate what happened and try different approach the next time.

Believe me you will be proud and amazed of yourself of what you can accomplish and how far you can go which you won’t realize at the start.

Do you think that you have lack of time and capital?

This is a big excuse to many aspiring entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs.

Believe it or not, it is a big advantage for us who have a day job or limited time and capital.

It’s because you will become more discipline where to focus your limited and valuable time.

You will be more aware not to exert your time into not-so important things and won’t matter to your success.

In terms of capital, you will be more resourceful and cautious to spend on things that will matter to your business.

You will not spend on things like office equipment or online tools that you don’t need yet.

So, what are you waiting for?


Contact the suppliers that you want to inquire with.

Start calling or sending email to that person.

Start talking to your potential customers.

Or register a domain for your business.

Do anything that you can do now for you to get going.


To your financial success,

Marvin Basa
