Actress-entrepreneur Neri Naig asserted that individuals can be successful on their own without necessarily being dependent on spouses. She also cleared up that she does not ask her husband, musician Chito Miranda, for money for her businesses or for pleasure.

Naig first posed a question before her fans about the tendency of some women to question fellow women who become successful. She noted how the success of women tend to be attributed to their spouses who got money.

“Hindi ba pwede na kaya mo ring mag invest, mag negosyo, at tumayo sa sarili mong mga paa dahil nagtrabaho ka talaga at nakapag ipon?” she asked.

(Can you not be capable of investing in business and to stand on your own feet, because you yourself work hard and saved up?)

“Hindi ako binibigyan ng pera ni Chito pang luho o pang negosyo,” Naig said in her Instagram post yesterday, Sept. 21. “Hindi rin naman ako nanghihingi. Sariling pera ko ang napupundar ko.”

(Chito does not give me money for luxury or business. I also do not ask him for money anyway. I raise my own money.)

Bakit kaya kapag may nararating ang isang babae, may karugtong na sasambitin ng iba, kase mapera ang asawa mo kaya may ganyan ka. Kadalasan sa mga kapwa babae mo mismo maririnig yan. Hindi ba pwede na kaya mo ring mag invest, mag negosyo, at tumayo sa sarili mong mga paa dahil nagtrabaho ka talaga at nakapag ipon? Walang imposible sa mga taong masipag at naghahanap buhay, may focus sa buhay, nag iipon, at may faith kay God at sa sarili. Regardless kung babae ka o lalaki, basta maabilidad ka kayang kaya mong magsucceed sa buhay. Wala yan kung "mapera" man ang asawa mo o kilala sa lipunan. Kung di ka marunong magtrabaho at di nag iipon, wala talaga patutunguhan kahit bigyan ka pa ng pera ng kabiyak mo. Mauubos mo rin yan. Hindi ako binibigyan ng pera ni Chito pang luho o pang negosyo. Hindi rin naman ako nanghihingi. Sariling pera ko ang napupundar ko. Sabi nga ng mga kabataan ngayon, i-flex mo yan, hehe! Hindi naging madali sa akin lahat lalo pa at wala rin akong naipundar nung nag artista ako. Nagsimula lang ako sa P3000, napalago ko siya. At 36 years old, ngayon ko palang nakikita ang mga pinaghirapan ko sa pagtitinda ng kung ano ano. Tindera ng bayan at tindera ng taon nga ako, di ba? Haha! Ayan lagi ang sinasabi sa akin at para sa akin, compliment yan. Ibig sabihin masipag ako. It is not too late para sa ating lahat na makapag invest, makapagtayo ng negosyo, o kung ano man ang pangarap mo noon pa man. Lucky you kung nakapagsimula ka ng mas bata pa. Ako? Medyo late na pero nagsumikap ako. Kahit anong edad mo pa basta maabilidad ka sa malinis na paraan, makukuha mo ang mga pangarap mo. Sabi nga ni Tita Shawie, "Unti unting mararating kalangitan at bituin. Unti-unting kinabukasan ko'y magniningning." Hehe! Ayan ang theme song ko kapag nakikita ko ang mga pinaghirapan ko. Yes, laki ako sa hirap pero hindi yun hadlang para umasenso. I embraced it at ginawang inspirasyon para umunlad sa buhay. At proud ako na hindi ako umaasa sa kung ano ang ibibigay ng asawa ko sa akin. Kayang kaya natin yan. Wala yan sa gender. Lalaki ka man, babae, tomboy, o bakla basta masipag ka, di ka magugutom. Partneran mo pa ng tyaga, aasenso ka sa buhay. #WaisNaMisis

Naig’s statement comes after sharing an update on her first business venture with the Parokya ni Edgar frontman — a rest house in Alfonso, Cavite — in a separate Instagram post on Friday, Sept. 20.

“Hindi naging madali sa akin lahat lalo pa at wala rin akong naipundar nung nag artista ako,” Naig added in her post yesterday. “Nagsimula lang ako sa P3000, napalago ko siya.”

(Everything was not easy for me especially since I was not able to save anything when I was an artist. I just started with P3,000, I was able to make it grow.)

Naig also admitted that she has been seeing the fruits of her labor only now that she is 36 years old. The actress credits her success to her efforts of selling various products through her various business ventures. Prior to her first investment with Miranda, she has been selling gourmet tuyo (dried fish), sleepwear, jewelry and pastries, among others.

“Yes, laki ako sa hirap pero hindi yun hadlang para umasenso. I embraced it at ginawang inspirasyon para umunlad sa buhay,” Naig said. “At proud ako na hindi ako umaasa sa kung ano ang ibibigay ng asawa ko sa akin.”

(Yes, I grew up in poverty but it was not a hindrance to succeed. I embraced it and made it [an] inspiration to progress in life. And I am proud that I do not depend on what my husband gives me.)

Naig and Miranda tied the knot in December 2014. JB
