Bea Alonzo admits that Diether Ocampo is helping her start her own business


073111-bea_main.jpgCurrently in Paris, France right now doing a show along with Zanjoe Marudo and Robin Padilla, Bea Alonzo is enjoying a definite career high. When news came out that she is reportedly the second highest paid actress in the Kapamilya network, the 23-year-old actress said she is not sure whether it’s true or not and that does not like to compare when it comes to things like that. “Hindi ko alam. Sana (laughs). Hindi ko nga alam kung magkano talent fee nila eh. Paano ko mapapatunayan?” she shared.

After over eight years in showbiz, Bea admitted that she feels it’s time for her to look into investments. Her co-Star Magic talent Diether Ocampo, who is also a businessman, has been giving her a lot of advice lately when it comes to money matters. ”Si Diet kasi, kung meron siyang gusto, talagang idi-dedicate niya yung sarili niya para makuha niya yun. Sobrang nakakabilib. Tapos lahat ng details. Lahat ng maliliit na bagay hanggang sa maliliit na tseke, sa kontrata ang galing niya. As in ‘pag pinapaliwanag niya sa akin, in awe talaga ako. Iniisip ko ang galing naman nitong taong ito,” she said.

The mestiza beauty admitted that she has always depended on others it comes to her earnings. “Siguro kasi nasanay ako na may mga taong nag-aayos nun para sa akin gaya ng Star Magic at yung nanay ko. Yung parang hindi ako ganun ka-responsible. Aaminin ko hindi ako responsible pagdating sa pera. Hindi talaga. Pag tinanong mo ako magkano laman ng wallet ko, hindi ko alam. Si Diet kasi ang galing niya kasi alam niya lahat. Minsan naiisip ako, mag-tu-24 na ako tapos five years from now 29 na ako. Siyempre iba na yung priorities ko, kailangan siguro mas maging masinop na ako ngayon. Hindi ko alam kung andito pa rin ako by then,” she said.

Bea said she wants to somehow follow in Diet’s footsteps by starting up her own business someday soon. “Ngayon na-i-inspire ako kay Diet. Siya yung nagtuturo sa akin na mag-business na, na mag-isip ba na yung mga liabilities tanggalin muna sa utak. Dapat mag-invest na sa assets. Ang galing kasi yun yung role niya sa buhay ko. Nakakatuwa kasi parang pinagmi-meet kami ni Lord sa tamang pagkakataon. Siya at saka si tita Isabel Rivas yung mga nag-ga-guide sa akin sa mga ganyang bagay. Tinnuturuan nila ako maging mas responsible pagdating sa pera,” she admitted.

Bea said her interest right now seems to be leaning towards poultry farms, which she is learning more about with help from fellow Guns and Roses actress Isabel Rivas. “Sa ngayon iniisip ko na pasukin yung poultry farm business kasi ganun si Tita Isabel. Gusto ko muna magkaroon ng feasibility study tungkol dun. Pero so far, yung nakikita ko sa kanya, parang magandang business. Kaya lang, kailangan mo talaga ng mapapagkatiwalaan mo dun. Yung mom ko naman magaling sa farm kasi meron na siyang farm eh sa Quezon so naisip ko parang kaya ni mama ito. Napatunayan ko naman na kaya niyang tumira for awhile sa probinsya kasi tumira siya nung nag uumpisa yung farm noon. Somehow, parang gusto kong pasukin. Pero siyempre mag-iipon muna ako ng malaki-laki. Pinag-aaralan ko na. Tapos si tita Isabel pinapadalhan ako ng magazines on agriculture na dini-deliver every month. Excited na din ako mag-seminar seminar muna, dagdag kaalaman, parang personal development na rin,” she said.

Bea admitted that she is eager to learn about different things so she can make herself an even better person. Bea also recently got into golf, with the help of her rumored boyfriend Zanjoe.  “Nakaktuwa kasi sigura
