MANILA - Visionary developer Robbie Antonio says he ignores naysayers in his quest to become the Philippines' first "unicorn" or $1-billion startup.

Antonio is the CEO of Revolution Precrafted, a pioneer in modular luxury homes.

"If I decided believing all the naysayers, I would not be doing what I'm doing," Antonio tells ANC's "The Boss."

The 40-year-old entrepreneur with slicked back hair says a boss should be "extremely ambitious."

"Most successful visionaries in my mind were relatively eccentric, extremely lofty in their ambitions and very steadfast in their goal of achieving it," said Antonio.

"You could multi-task and do a hundred tasks with specific goals.
You have to have razor sharp focus. And I believe in that," he added.

Catch The Boss on ANC at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, with replays at 11:30 p.m.; Fridays at 3:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.; Saturdays at 4:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.; Sundays at 4:30 a.m. and Mondays at 9:30 a.m.
