IZA Calzado is now a businesswoman. The award-winning actress told writers at the presscon of “Ouija” held at Patio Ibarra in Timog last week that she has invested in The Tides, a 60-room plush resort located at Station 2 in Boracay. Iza says she invested close to P1 million for the resort and she even consulted her boyfriend (Jerry Garcia) before she decided to put money into it.

A friend encouraged Iza to invest in The Tides and among those who are involved in the business include Tim Yap, Stephen Cu, Eric Cua, GP Reyes, and her boyfriend among others.

“It’s a great opportunity because in Boracay, there’s no way to lose because business is booming talaga,” Iza told writers at the presscon of “Ouija” last week at Patio Ibarra.

“I believe in my partners at saka swerte lang ako na they offered it to me kasi they wanted an artista to be part of it. Kasi I think, ‘yung mga partners ko, they don’t really need the money. Pero gusto raw nila,pag tiningnan ang line-up ng investors, makikita na mapagkakatiwalaan.

Saka involved din naman ang boyfriend ko sa business na ito kaya when he told me it’s okay to invest, go na ako,” said Iza. Her boyfriend is an investment banker that’s why he’s knowledgeable in this aspect. Iza has checked the place in Boracay and she’s proud to say it’s very beautiful.

Iza is thinking of investing her hard-earned money in future business endeavors while she’s still young although she admits that she has to be wise in investing her money. She wants to put up a business that she can call her own. And she also wants to save for her dream house.

If she’s excited with her business, Iza is equally excited with the movie ”Ouija” under GMA Films and Viva Films. She had a wonderful time working with her co-stars Judy Ann Santos, Jolina Magdangal and Rhian Ramos. “They (Juday and Jolens) made us at ease. Hindi nila ipinaramdam sa amin na mga baguhan kami at hindi puwedeng maki-level sa kanilang dalawa,”says Iza. She’s also excited to watch the movie, together with the press, in a special screening to be held on July 19.
