There are a lot of ways of earning money, but some would rather be their own bosses instead of working for other people. With that, some would try to open their own business, and the most common business that one can open would be anything related to food.
Once you are ready to open a business, there are a few more steps that you will need to take. Registering your business in your local government is most important, as it needs to be known that your business is legal, or you’ll face the consequences, like what happened in Parañaque.
