Apart from being fueled by his passion for his craft, Alden Richards admits that his desire for financial security also keeps him going.
He is working hard to be able to save enough for himself and his family. He has gotten into the food service industry and is still able to manage his responsibilities as a business owner. “I’m busy taking care of Concha’s Garden Cafe kasi it’s growing really fast now. We’re planning of expanding every year. So nandun ang focus ko.”
His first Concha’s Garden Cafe is in Tagaytay, Cavite while his second Concha’s Garden Cafe is located along Tomas Morato Avenue in Quezon City. There is just no stopping Alden. “Then of course I’m venturing more in doing other businesses as well and putting time and effort kung ano pa ‘yung mga puwede ko pang gawin aside from being a restaurateur.”
Whether as a celebrity or businessman, Alden makes sure to always turn in a good day’s work. His dedication to work is not just to support himself. He strives to become a professional colleague for the people he is working with. He puts prime importance on being nice to everyone around him. He also tells MEGA Man that being a good person is the legacy that he wants to establish more than anything else.
With all eyes still on him, wondering how far he can still go, Alden says he is not the type who is preoccupied with setting specific goals and timetables for his career and personal life. “Bahala na si Lord,” he states. “I really don’t put up a list of things that I want to have or achieve in my life kasi with expectation comes frustration eh ‘pag hindi mo nakuha mga ine-expect mong bagay.”
“So the less you expect, the less heartbroken you will be,” he lets out. It does follow, too, that the lesser one expects, the more ecstatic he becomes when a surprise pops in. Alden was surely taken aback in 2015 when things took a sharp turn and his fame skyrocketed. Who knows what other surprises could be in store for Alden and his supporters as he continues to thrive in the worlds of entrepreneurship and showbiz.
