Internet Wars: A New Hope

No Internet connection? That's not good if you're a VA. You need to do something about it.

No Internet connection? That’s not good if you’re a VA. You need to do something about it.

“You must be living in a rich village because you got Fibr,” Jomar told me minutes before the February 10, 2014 webinar where I shared my VA story for the second time. He was referring to my Internet connection.

Let me make this clear: Yes, I live in a village. But it’s not called Ayala Alabang (but my proximity in that area is one commute only). I live in a simple village that just luckily is slowly getting Fibr-d.

Cheers to more years for my blog – and for your great future in work-at-home!

Tomorrow is the start of my Crazy.

One last look at my office table.

One last look at my office table.

I have cleared my office desk two weeks ago. But nothing prepared me for the last time I took out the last piece of stuff that I brought home with me last Friday. I blame the sleepless nights for feeling numb to my clearing out of office stuff.

But then, as I stepped out of the office gate for the last time, I felt heaviness and at the same time peace in my heart. I felt the wind against my face, then I saw the bright moon.

The same bright moon that’s staring at lovers last Friday is the same moon that stared at me, almost saying, “This is the start of something crazy!” Continue reading
