      Thank you Val. Good luck on your journey to be wealthy.

  2. Hello, I am BaDz and I am a young small entrepreneur. I am still 19 years old and I started to earn from scratch. I saw your interview with Boy Abunda and it was an enlightenment for me about financial independence. Thus, I learned a lot from it and as a gratitude I created a facebook fanpage for you. I will also buy your book Wealth Within Your Reach, Pera Mo Palaguin Mo! someday. Thank you and more power
