Since the pand3mic, many people have had to strategize because all industries have been affected. Many businesses have temporarily closed, and one of them is the showbiz industry, especially the noontime show on the GMA network that Lovely belongs to.
Lovely did not sit around and wait for the pandemic to end. She began selling online, and she frequently went live on Facebook to sell bags and outfits. She even explored a profession in sales after receiving encouragement from acquaintances and other people. She stated that many individuals wanted to sell her items, which she did not decline, and that the number of requests grew.
She also announced her new position as CEO of Lovely Cosmetics PH in an Instagram post in March. Many were amazed and even she could not believe that she had achieved them.
This was followed by a post only on June 10 that showed her and her husband Benj Manalo (Jose Manalo’s son) in their dream house. It is clear from her post that she is grateful to the Lord and proud of online sellers.
“Lahat ay isang pangarap na tinupad mo Lord, ngayon palang nag-sink in sa akin na totoong nangyayari lahat ng ‘to sa aming pamilya.”
She said that because of online selling, they were able to save enough money to purchase their dream home and car. She also stated that the vehicle was named Mic-Mic after the word pandeMIC.
Hard work, dedication, and strategy are required to reach one’s goal in life. She also believed that nothing is impossible for a person who loves to dream.
“grabe maniwala kayo walang impossible lalo na sa katulad kung mahilig mangarap.”
Lovely was a prominent dancer in Willie Revillame’s former noontime program and she still never forgets her fellow dancers, who expressed their support and were happy with her success.
On the other hand, it can be noticed how supportive Benj is of his wife. He even left a comment on one of Lovely’s posts.
“Lets go, baby! Trabaho pa tayo hahaha love you congrats sa ‘tin! And sa buong team na nakapaligid satin! Para satin ‘to!”
Another secret ingredient in their lives to achieve what they want is being supportive of each other.
