How Paloma Zobel made her first move with entrepreneurship
As they say, making the first move is always the hardest part.
For Paloma Urquijo Zobel, her first move in business meant stepping out of her comfort zone and moving back to the Philippines.
“I think my first move in business was when I decided to move back to the Philippines, so really leaving my comfort zone and coming back home to set up Piopio wad really my first move,” Paloma said in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Preen.ph.
Coming from a wealthy Spanish clan, the Palawan-based daughter of philantrophist Bea Zobel Jr. has made a name for herself in the fashion world with Piopio, largely resort wear that sources all woven fabrics directly from local hand weavers across the country.
