When and where is the best time and place to invest as millennial entrepreneurs?
Millennials live in a very interesting time. They are also known as the Generation Me or the Echo Boomers. These millennials move in a world where having a personal blog can earn money to sustain a living or even a lifestyle. It is in this generation where passion and profit can literally mean the same thing in terms of career; where paying extra for a cause they believe in isn’t big of a deal and that they will support. And where travelling and seeing the world is ultimately encouraged for sustainability and to feed one’s soul, it’s an era where the possibilities of life are only limited by their own imaginations.
One thing about millennials, they are wanderers by nature. Marketing wise, the following cities in the Philippines would top 70% of the Millennials who would opt for properties to purchase in the country.
