Alexa Ilacad explains that her family has financial advisors whom they call ‘money doctors.’
Alexa Ilacad, who turned 18 last year, revealed that her family has trusted financial advisors or what they call “money doctors” who help them in handling their finances—especially her earnings—the proper way.
“Actually it was mom. Actually we have financial advisors or what we call ‘money doctors’ to help us and teach where to put our money, kung saan dapat i-iinvest so we have guidance with our spendings and to be able to handle our finances very well,” she told PUSH in an exclusive interview at the Pure Magic 2019 event.
“I trust all my money with my mom. She’s been really good at her job in saving money for my future. She’s teaching me little stuff here and there but since ngayon I’m in my first year of college, medyo hindi pa lahat pumasok sa brain ko,” she added.
The 18-year-old Kapamilya singer-actress, who revealed that she runs her own AirBnb or a lodging business, wishes to pursue a career in the real estate in the future.
“I hope. I really want to enter the business of real estate. But for now, I have one AirBnb. It’s really doing good. So ‘yun muna. Start small,” she stated.
Currently in her first year as a business student, Alexa said she’s loving every minute of it.
“I love it. I love college. I didn’t think I would enjoy this much. I thought, you know, I would slack off, be always tired and lazy but no, I love it. I love every minute of it.”
While she’s having fun at school, Alexa couldn’t deny the fact that it’s very challenging for her considering that she’s juggling it with her showbiz career.
“It’s really hard. Like last night, I was crying na kasi I’ve been having MMK tapings, out of town. And it’s my midterms, same week so I have no idea how I’m going to survive but I will,” she said.
Meanwhile, Alexa Ilacad confirmed that a new album is underway.
“Well I think I’m going to start making my second album. So fingers crossed I don’t think it’s going to come out this year. Pero I’m in the process of making it. Baka medyo matagalan but it’s in the works,” she stated.
Alexa Ilacad also hopes to try out hosting sometime in the future.
“Hosting. I’ve had my laser surgery so I can see now,” she said presumably referring to cue cards or the prompter.
