There was something useful my father taught me: When faced with assignments, work on the hardest ones first. At the moment, I have a very unsavory but fairly-paid project on my hands. The end result, with my articles on a European website, looks awesome, actually. However, personally, it is always an ordeal before I get […]

As a Virtual Assistant, I’ve crashed and burned countless of times throughout my career. I was rather surprised when I learned that this “phenomenon” is something that is rather common to a good majority of Virtual Assistants. In fact, I later learned that this is a pattern that also exists in Western freelancers and other […]

During a conversation with an old friend tonight, we discussed his career options. One of those included working as a driver for an electronics company in Metro Manila.

Kalibo is a provincial capital that should have applied for city status a long time ago. It is the gateway to Boracay, one of the Philippines’ prized beach destinations, and the only island with white sand so fine, it is likened to the Filipino dessert, the Polvoron.

Boundaries In Freelancing

July 15, 2013

0 Comments

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. Especially if you live in a setup like mine. My current work-life balance is a tremulous juggling act in a studio-type room. My […]

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

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 […]

Right now, I’m servicing a friend’s cute little Lenovo S110, one of my wishlist computers, as I borrowed it for my use since I’ve been out and about and meeting friends. I preferred to use this smaller thing, as lugging around a 14″ laptop isn’t exactly convenient. So far, I’ve uninstalled MyWebSearch, video downloaders, “PC […]
