One of the top influential business leaders that I admire is Sir Richard Branson. I knew him previously as the owner of Virgin Companies (Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, Virgin soda, and get this, Virgin Brides!). I came to know of his success story from the book that Jay McLean released in Australia. Branson’s success story […]
A former office mate (and still a friend) asked me a question via Facebook Messenger. Don’t you miss your office mates? See my response in my screenshot (together with the comments that I got from other virtual assistant friends). Now, before you glare at me and scream “How ungrateful!”, “What a loner!”, or worse, “Mewling […]
I got another twin story for you. Well, this twin story is not related to my Twin Lakes escapade. I am going to tell you about REAL twins! Babies! Okay, let me be just clear: the twins are NOT mine. Let’s go to the story. Weeks prior to Holy Week, I told my clients that […]
Tagaytay? On a Tuesday? As a virtual assistant, yes, I can go there. Plus my friends. And we REALLY did go to Tagaytay on a Tuesday. My virtual assistant friends and I invaded Tagaytay (specifically the amazing Twin Lakes) for the second time recently. This time around, we were not the only ones who spent […]
I am still a big fan of Bitstrips, a comic app where you can create a comic version of yourself. Imagine my amusement when I saw the Bitstrip version of myself. It was like looking at a mirror!

I learned about how other ways to earn and grow my money (I was amazed at affiliate income and real estate) and how present a content that would enable you to offer your product (participants were literally […]
I remember how the family of my mother’s sister went to Canada one by one (or should I say, family by family). It was in 1998 when the classic story of Filipino diaspora happened in my mother’s side of the family. When one of my aunt’s daughters (my cousin) married a Filipino-Canadian, she petitioned her […]
I was on a break from my 2016 planning yesterday when a teachable moment happened. My 78-year-old dad (I call him Papa) sat down with us in the dining table to ask about social media.
My virtual professional friends and I are always open to questions from aspiring virtual professionals. Questions range from how did we start becoming a virtual professional to well, do I have a boyfriend (to which my answer is always “the real one or the ones that I only know?”). Suddenly, we found ourselves taking the […]
Maybe the biggest news in entertainment this week is the hacking of Maine Mendoza’s Twitter account. You may not be as famous as Yaya Dub but anyone, even YOU, can fall prey to hacking.
