A former bus conductor in the Philippines who only received P10 to P15 each day is now a successful luxury car rental owner in the US.
As shared by Facebook page Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Felix is now running a car rental company in the US and some of his passengers are actually popular Hollywood celebrities.
“Nung bata ako, akala ko lahat ng tao ginagawa yung ginagawa namin. yung nanay ko nagluluto sa kahoy, naghuhugas ng plato sa balde. Pero nung napunta ako sa bahay ng kaklase ko nung high school, nakita ko na meron silang couch. Maganda yung lababo nila. Hiyang-hiya ako sa katayuan ng buhay namin noon. Doon ko na-realize na dapat akong magsumikap,” he shared.
While he was working as a bus conductor, he was only paid P10 to P15 each day. Felix said that a certain friend urged him to continue dreaming and follow what he wanted to do.
“Kaya nagkaroon ako ng lakas ng loob gawin yung gusto ko. Naghanap ako ng paraan. Sumampa ako ng barko. Hanggang sa nagkaroon ng oportunidad dito sa Amerika,” he added.
The business said he exhausted his saving to set up a business abroad.
“Sa awa ng Diyos, may mga tumatawag na mag-aavail ng car rental service. Nagkaroon ako ng pasaherong Hollywood celebrities, gaya nina Pati Austin, Simon Cowell, at si Captain America Chris Evans. Basta wag kang mag give up. Aim high,” he said.
