‘Nakakaproud’: Neri Naig enrolls in Harvard online course on entrepreneurship
Neri Naig is set to join a course on entrepreneurship under Harvard Business School Online, proving that learning never stops.
She spoke about her decision to apply for the program after receiving an acceptance letter from the institution, as seen on her Instagram page yesterday, Aug. 9.
Naig posted a portion of the email, which stated that the course is called “Entrepreneurship Essentials” and will start on Sept. 2. She then poked fun at the letter and called the school a “bolero (flatterer)” for saying they are “thrilled” to have her join the program.
“Ok na. Sobrang saya ko na, na alam ko na pasok ako,” she said. “Ang next ay sakit sa bulsa tapos sakit sa brain naman!”
(It’s OK. I am so happy already that I know I am accepted. What’s next is the damage to my wallet and the strain on my brain!)
She also joked and said to herself: “Magbabayad ka para sumakit ang ulo mo, haha! Pero [‘di] ba ginusto mo yan?”
(You are going to pay to have a headache, haha! But you wanted this right?)
Naig then expressed how proud she is of herself for always finding a way to attain her goals.
“Walang excuses dapat. Paano ko malalaman kung para sa akin kung hindi ko susubukan, [‘di] ba?” she said.
(There should be no excuses. How will I know if it is for me if I do not try, right?)
Naig also encouraged her followers to find ways to keep learning.
“[Mag-invest] ka sa sarili mo. Tandaan, hindi pa huli ang lahat,” she said. “Kahit anong edad mo pa.”
(Invest in yourself. Remember, it is not too late yet. Whatever your age is.)
Naig has made a name for herself with multiple businesses such as her restaurant Neri’s Not So Secret Garden in Tagaytay and her dried fish business Neri’s Gourmet Tuyo. Along with her ventures, Naig also often posts on social media about agriculture and growing her own food. NVG
