Dr. Aldrin P. Antivola, BIZ iCREATE Consultant, told the attendees that everyone starts from small and will grow later on as they explore possibilities to enhance what they are doing. They can start by attending training and seminars. Metaphorically, he said that the entrepreneurial journey is a cycle of a butterfly – going through stages before they can achieve their goals, and the key is to never give up.
