"Never do anything because of money."
This was the best advice Gold's Gym Philippines boss Mylene Dayrit received some 30 years ago from one of her bosses who encouraged her to know her passion and purpose in life.
"For me, a boss is a mentor...more than anything. Through the years, my most memorable bosses would be those who have really instilled in me or passed on to me their wisdom," Dayrit said.
"Because if you follow that path, everything else will follow," she added.
After embracing her failed business ventures, Dayrit went on to become the chief executive officer of the largest international gym chain in the Philippines, and has made education the core of her business.
