Being an entrepreneur in the time of a pandemic is extra tough, to say the least. In a climate such as this, you have to keep pushing and adapting to the needs of the customers to stay in the game. Haydee Chua, president of the pet boutique Dogs and the City, has learned not only to be strong and to face challenges head on, but also to become an inspiration to her people during these trying times.
This fierce and fearless woman entrepreneur heads one of the first pet boutiques in Manila. Dogs and the City offers a wide array of products for dogs, cats, and other pets, as well as grooming and pampering services for fur babies.
When asked what makes her powerful, she said, “During the pandemic, I learned not to give up and still rise above the challenges of being a woman and an entrepreneur.”
Being the determined and courageous boss lady that she is, it is important for Haydee to motivate others to find their strength, too.
She related, “To be an inspiration to other people, to be an encouragement that they too can find their own strength—these things—make me stronger and powerful.”
Haydee is among the featured ladies of Fierce & Fearless Females of Forbes Town series — which is a collection of words of positivity from the women of the community, in celebration of Women’s Month!
