AEVA_do you miss the office benefits

ANNswer: Do you miss the office benefits?

Overheard from Facebook: I miss the benefits in the corporate life.

Benefits. Hhhmmmm…..

Let’s see.

1. Insurance

Pwede ka pa din namang makakuha nito kasi malaki naman ang earnings mo as you work online.

2. Health card

Pwede ka din namang kumuha nito. Or be healthy. You actually have the time to be more conscious of what you eat (and better choices!)

3. Summer outings

Hhmm, yeah. Pero you have new friends na pwede mong mayaya. And you can travel anytime, right?

4. Christmas party

You give gifts to people you don’t like, may competition ng production (and we do it on the “sharing and caring season”!), aannnddd everyone’s talking about not having enough bonus.

Benefits. Hhhmmm…

Are you a virtual professional who also missed the office benefits? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

The Secret of Following Up Your Delayed Pay

One of my former clients took a while to pay my services.

It was an agony, honestly. The client did not update me every time the deadline payment past.

I am the type of person who ensures that my payments are due. On the other hand, I believe that if someone owes me, it is his or her responsibility to update me on the payments. I really do not like following up. In the first place, I was not the one who has a due.

So what do you do when this happens? A recent webinar with a Filipino lawyer gave these tip: PROTECT YOURSELF. Continue reading

Cashflow Game 101 Event: learning about game and life

Let's play!

Let’s play!

 

(This was the testimonial I sent to Jomar Hilario a day after volunteering for the Cash Flow 101 Game. He read it last May 26 on his Free Weekly Webinar.)

For the first time since knowing Jomar, I made it to his seminar volunteer list. I tried doing the VA Summit last November 2013, but the others had faster fingers than me.

As an Online Mentoring Club 3.0 member, I was privileged to sign up as volunteer. I did not get the confirmation until Friday night, so I did not know what will my Saturday was going to be until I got the notice. I made it! I’m going to finally see how this game in played! Continue reading

Money Money Money

               http://www.google.com.ph

Got this from Facebook

I saw the above pictures in Google and Facebook, respectively.

For some, it may look absurd. But since I have committed myself to become rich, I now always say, “why not?”

In the first place, I want to have money not only to buy what I need and to secure my future. I have also realized that I want to have money so that I could extend help to others.

I have given up on the fact that I can only share my talents and skills to the world. I am also capable of making money out of them. I can also share money to those in need.

Me? A budding philantropist?

I’d like to think yes.

So bring on the money mess in my house and in my bath tub.

I really would not mind.

4 So this is how it feels to have a heart broken on Valentine’s Day.

I sat down for my first Tuesday work. I opened my ODesk Team application, signed in, and waited for my team to become visible.

I wondered why my team was still invisible after a few minutes. The application even said that it might be so because I do not belong to any roster.

That’s weird. I have an online job. That means I have a team, right?

I got the answer when I opened my ODesk account.

Well, this is embarrassing. But this blog is about my life as I become a full-time work-at-home geek, so I’ll spill the beans.

My employer ended my contract; she said it was not working out. She’s going to pay me on what I have worked for.

I told you I got the job in a whirlwind. Too bad I lost it in a whirlwind, too.

It’s sad. I’m going to lie if I tell you it did not hurt a bit.

It was like you know you have a Valentine’s Day date, only to find out the last-minute that you got dumped.

Ouch.

But a few minutes after, I breathed slowly, then smiled.

Well, first, I was happy for the chance to have work with the employer. That was my first ODesk work, and she gave me a chance. She gave me a good feedback on my work.

Second, I also learned that I need to work faster to keep up with work. I know I am a fast worker as a full-time employee in the companies where I worked. I need a little more re-training on how to work more fast for online jobs.

So I decided to move forward from the loss. Heck, I even provided words of encouragement to others who gave their time to post their comments in my earlier post (thank you, guys!), minutes after learning I lost the gig (and I started looking for jobs again).

Still, I’m going to lie if I tell you that it did not hurt a bit.

I just chose to carry on and take the lessons with me because I believe I will be able to get a better gig.

I thank God I have become matured enough to always see the good things. I have also realized that situations like this remind me to be humble yet still be a source of encouragement for others.

So this is how it feels to have a heart-broken on Valentine’s Day.

Nah, there are still a lot to date out there.

Inasmuch as there are still a lot employers online who’ll get me.

$500 a week.

I was about to be in slumber yesterday when I heard my mind say this: “Ann is earning $500 a week.”

I didn’t know how it occurred. And I know was still awake.

To be honest, it is way way way higher than what I am earning now.

But come to think of it, it IS possible to earn that. I know I have the skills and the knowledge to bring that amount into my pocket.

And to my charity of choice.

And renovate the house.

And build my home office.

When I dozed off, I knew I never had a dream about the $500 coming into my hands.

But I know it’s going to happen.

I’M GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
