Neri Naig celebrated her 35th birthday by reaping the rewards of her hard work.
As the celebrity entrepreneur turned 35 on September 7, 2020, she also acquired a new condo space in the same week.
"Thank you, Lord! Isa na namang biyaya from You po," the former Star Circle Quest talent wrote in her recent Instagram post.
"Dahil sa pagtitinda ng tuyo, suka, kape, beddings, sleepwear, at accessories online.. nakabili ng isang condo sa may tabing dagat.
"Sobrang proud ako sa sarili ko dahil pinaghirapan ko ang lahat ng mga na-invest ko. Nakakaiyak!"
CHITO MIRANDA PAYS TRIBUTE TO WIFE NERI
Neri's husband Chito Miranda dedicated an Instagram post of his own to celebrate Neri's latest feat.
The Parokya ni Edgar frontman wanted make it clear that people should focus not on the condo unit, but on the hard work that Neri had put in to acquire it with her own hard-earned money.
"Sa katunayan, iyan yung pinakamaliit at pinakamurang unit sa buong building... so owning this particular condo unit isn't really worth bragging about," Chito said.
"Ang pinagmamalaki ni Neri ay yung fact na nabili niya iyan on her own, using her own money, mula sa mga naipon nya from her small businesses na pinaghirapan nyang itaguyod from scratch.
"Now THAT is something to be proud of."
Chito also realized that because people see how hard Neri works and are inspired by her, they would not think she was being "mayabang" for celebrating this accomplishment.
He continued on his caption: "I guess that is why maraming nai-inspire sa kanya instead na mayabangan because people know the difference between someone who is proud of his or her achievement, vs someone who is simply bragging about something that he or she simply has.
"More importantly, they are inspired because alam nila na kaya din nilang gawin yung ginagawa ni Neri as long as they work hard, and focus all their energy in pursuing their goals."
More than anything, Chito is proud that Neri uses her success to help other people achieve similar success.
He said, "She tries her best to share her blessings, not just by inspiring other to do the same, but also by spreading out opportunities to earn.
"She genuinely wants everyone to succeed."
NERI's growing enterprise
Neri once revealed in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in August 2018 that she likes thinking about the possibilities as far as businesses are concerned..
Her latest business venture? Real estate.
Since many have been messaging the star about acquiring a lot in Alfonso, Cavite—where she, Chito, and their son Miguel reside—Neri thought it might be a good idea to start "Team Wais Real Estate."
The celebrity mom wrote in her Instagram, "Puwedeng-puwede na po tayong magkapitbahay! At ang sigurado pa diyan, di ka maloloko sa mga papers dahil kami na ang mag-aayos ng lahat niyan!
"May mas maganda pang balita, very flexible ang mode of payments! Saan ka pa? Tara naaaaa at mag-invest na!"
Neri partnered with a real-estate company to put together this endeavor.
Her new business venture also aims to provide opportunities for individuals who have lost their jobs during this pandemic.
Neri's post read: "Ang Team Wais Real Estate po ay may partner na Real Estate Company at may licensed real estate brokers po kami.
"Ang Team Wais Real Estate po ay referral agents po ang aking kinukuha para makatulong sa mga misis, mister, kahit di pa misis at mister na nawalan ng trabaho dahil sa pandemya."
