In fact, I later learned that this is a pattern that also exists in Western freelancers and other […]

Before there was money, there was The Barter System. People traded goods with each other, so that they would be able to have what they needed. Bartering, in Philippine events and advertising parlance, is also called the “X-Deal.” EXchange Deal, in short. Nowadays, I would bet that advertising and events company mavens would scoff at […]

Boundaries In Freelancing

July 15, 2013

One thing I learned in the work-from-home career is that the setup truly makes you confused about your boundaries: there’s no way of telling when you’re going to work or coming home.

Last week, I had two separate conversations that made me think that there are a lot of people who actually want to break into professional blogging.

There is no one way to do things. As a VA, most of my colleagues dream of growing to the point of being able to manage their own teams, and possibly even to set up their own companies. I, on the other hand, discovered early on that the subcontractor’s life is too stressful for me. […]

Dealing With Setbacks In A VA’s Career

May 16, 2013

0 Comments

A freelancer’s life is NOT easy. There are ebbs and flows in the work situation, and in greater measure than the average employee. Clients are not as loyal, and with the lack of laws governing Internet-based businesses and companies, contracts agreed between parties in an online arrangement are not actually as binding. This is why […]

By Lila Villa   Drop shipping was a most wondrous concept I had not heard of up until my enrollment in the Ecommerce 102 Fast Track program. Certainly drop shipping has been around for as long as e-commerce has existed, but to Pinoy entrepreneurs and wannabes, this may be a little known concept. (For more […]

In a freelance writing career, one may ask how one would be able to write article after article and never run out of ideas. The secret to that, I’m afraid is coffee. Just kidding.

November 22, 2012

This post takes off from my three realizations in the previous post, the point about “Getting back up on the saddle.” As a young Virtual Assistant, around 6 years ago, I had a very bad habit of “hibernating” whenever I failed myself and my clients.
