For the beauty queen turned actress and now entrepreneur, it’s a nerve-wracking process as it’s something new, which makes her quite a risk-taker in some sense. “Hindi ko naman sya napag-aralan sa school and I’m really only getting good advice from the people around me so it’s a risk in that way,” she told the press at the launch of the Jollibee Spicy Tuna Pie.

Pia makes sure every risk she takes has been calculated beforehand, she said. “I’m also conservative where I try not to put too much risk that I’ll lose a lot. I think I’m finding that nice balance." All said, everything counts as a fun learning experience, she said.

As she’s looking to open more branches of her first business venture, Pia’s also working closely with a makeup line. “I have a collaboration with the brand. Hopefully, that will grow bigger,” she teased. “Stay tuned nalang on this and other businesses in the works!”
