The singer-actress has her mother and grandparents to thank for teaching her the value of saving and investing at a young age.
While she comes from a family of affluence, KC Concepcion would like to break the notion that everything in life is handed to her on a silver platter. This, after having revealed that she has invested on a beach property in the Philippines, thanks to her mother and grandparents who have taught her the value of saving and investing at an early age.
“Dear Mom and Grandparents, thank you for teaching me to ‘save and invest’ at such a young age. Like every working millennial or woman in their 30s, I am continuing to learn how to take care of, grow, and move around personal finances,” said the singer-actress on Instagram.
Dear Mom and Grandparents, thank you for teaching me to “Save & Invest” at such a young age. Like every working millennial or woman in their 30s, I am continuing to learn how to take care of, grow, and move around personal finances ♥️ . My grandma, stepdad, and mom were so strict about saving up to buy property FIRST, before getting that @hermes bag... Yes, pressure and standards were high but I am glad they were! Although deep inside as a girl of course I wanted the BAG, I learned about “delayed gratification” in order to afford the BEACH. 😜 Lol. . What’s YOUR dream? Keep busy, and work smart, so you too can make your dreams come true. On your own terms. And quietly, without stepping on anyone’s toes. DREAM BIG! BE KIND! You can ACHIEVE it! 😉 #Kacepirations #TheKCDiaries #Philippines #RealEstate #Palawan

KC, it appears, initially wanted to spend on a Hermes bag, which typically costs half a million to a staggering 10 million dollars for its classic Birkins handbag, according to Fortune. However, her grandmother, the late Elaine Gamboa, her mom, Sharon Cuneta, and her stepdad, Francis Pangilinan, advised against it, and instead encouraged her to buy a property first. “Yes, pressure and standards were high but I am glad they were! Although, deep inside as a girl, of course, I wanted to bag. I learned about ‘delayed gratification’ in order to afford the beach,” shared the Megastar’s daughter.
