Situations that Only Virtual Professionals Understand

Situations that Only Virtual Professionals Understand

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!

In one of my sane days, I decided to compile situations that only virtual professionals understand. Starring me in all my Bitstrips glory. These Bitstrip comic situations first appeared on my personal Facebook account.

As I was working on the compiled situations, I could not help but wonder and be grateful because I never imagined that I would experience these situations. The dream of working from home has indeed came true. I was just writing about some of my work at home dreams in my earlier blogs!

Do you want to learn how to work from home, forget about traffic and office politics? Years ago, I decided to attend a seminar on How to Become a Virtual Assistant. It has helped me and a lot others how to build an exceptional online portfolio, have confidence in my value and skills, and market myself. I was mentored by Jomar Hilario, Philippines’ top online marketing guru.

Here’s the good news: Jomar is going to conduct another live seminar on virtual careers on April 9! Click here for more details.

You can’t attend on April 9? There is a downloadable version! What’s more, you can also choose between two seminar versions!

What’s the difference between the two? Here’s is the comparative review of my friend, Jones Mancilla of Positively Awesome Virtual Assistant.

From Overseas Filipino Worker to Outstanding Filipino Worker: How does one make the transition?

From Overseas Filipino Worker to Outstanding Filipino Worker: How does one make the transition?

In the recently concluded Wealth Summit 2016, one of the most discussed question came from an Overseas Filipino Worker. The question posed was:

“How does an Overseas Filipino Worker transition?”

Everyone in the room had the approving mood. Sure, exceptional business mentors surrounded me, as well as Truly Rich Club members (composed of business owners, employees, infopreneurs and Overseas Filipino Workers). Yet, everyone considered the question valid and important.

In one of my posts, I told you the story of the diaspora that happened in my own family. There were also a number of households here in where I live where a parent is an Overseas Filipino Worker.

Here are some of the answers from the different Truly Rich Club mentors and Wealth Summit 2016 speakers. I hope you will find them helpful.

Moreover, if you are an Overseas Filipino Worker, I hope you will find them valuable and doable. May your transition from an Overseas Filipino Worker to an Outstanding Filipino Worker (whatever you want to do as long as it is legit and you are working here in the Philippines!) be enjoyable and fruitful.

The effects of having Outstanding Filipino Worker is a social problem because a parent or both parents are not at home to guide children. With the technology at hand, use it and communicate to your children.

Share with your children your struggle as you work miles away from them. Telling them stories will let them that you are sacrificing for them.

JOMAR HILARIO, Online Marketing Guru

One of the ways to transition from an Overseas Filipino Worker is to look for job opportunities online. He or she can do this part-time until such time he or she gets many clients, go full-time as a virtual professional, and then go home to the Philippines.

Even the family members of the Overseas Filipino Worker can work online, so while the latter is still working abroad, the family members has another source of income.

This is the reason why the How to Become a VA (Virtual Assistant) Seminar became the Virtual Careers book. The book can reach more people, just like attending the same seminar. All you have to do is to follow everything that is written in the book.

Work from Home who needs to go abroad

Work-from-Home: Who Needs to go Abroad?

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 older sister. The older sister followed to Canada and when got settled, she took her whole family. Then the sisters told their older brother to follow. When the older brother has settled, he told his family to pack up and leave. Then my aunt and uncle were petitioned later on.

I was a graduating college student when I realized that almost all of them were already in Canada.

All these years when they went home for a vacation, they would tell me to start preparing my papers for Canada. They said I would get all the help I need – a place to stay and support in looking for work.

Before, I was tempted to prepare my papers and follow them. Lately, I tell them, “Nah, I’ll go there to visit you.”

Why can I say that?

I can say that because I learned about work-from-home from Jomar Hilario.

Work-from-home was just an idea many years ago. Thanks to the development of technology, the widespread list of reasons of what we can do in the Internet, and a mentor who is willing to help, I learned that I can work at the comforts of my home.

I can not blame my relatives from going abroad; they have their reasons for doing so. But I also have the power of choice of not joining the diaspora.

How about you? Would you like to work from home, too?

Well, a lot of us say “yes” when asked “do you want work from home”? We all think it’s some kind of fantasy (that’s impossible) or it’s heaven (I wish…).

Why not stop the speculation and investigate what to expect, how much can you earn, and know more about how you can do this “work at home thing”?

Listen to the “work at home” expert Jomar Hilario as he trains you on how you can start making steps to leaving your stressful work and just staying in your bedroom all day …while earning.

Have you found the book that can change your life?

I recently tweeted that I am now on my 15th book of the year!

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

I was happy to tweet that for many reasons: one, I am beyond my target of one book a month (12 books a year); two, I am reading more physical books you know, the one with paper and you hold it with your two hands?) than listening to audio books; three, as related to reason number two – is because I now have the time to read a physical book!

But out of the 15 books, I found two that are really life-changing. The two books are easy-to-read and easy-to-apply. If I will follow the instructions of the book, I will again see myself on a new adventure. But since it is not yet the end of the year, I will keep the book titles a secret (wink wink).

Indeed, reading books is not only expanding my horizon and imagination; it also lets me discover new things that can help me improve myself.

How about you? Have you found the book that can change your life?

If I may suggest, I recommend you to buy “Virtual Careers: Earn Dollars at Home, Eliminate Daily Stress, Embrace Your Family More”, the first-ever book of my mentor, Jomar Hilario. You will discover a secret formula that unlocks the steps to your virtual career, unique solutions to fix most online job problems and more.

Get a chance to peep on the stories of ordinary Filipinos who work from home (like moi). And for inspiration, the book also has wonderful freedom scenes that you will experience if you follow the instructions in the book!

Virtual Careers is the book version of the How to Become a Virtual Assistant Seminar that Jomar ran for many years. I have attended that seminar twice – one in a downloadable version (learn at your own pace) and one live event (where I got to share my experiences as a virtual professional). The seminar paved the way for me to become a virtual professional.

I am happy that the Virtual Careers book finally came out. It is one of the few books in the country that talks about virtual careers (because people think we don’t exist). I was able to attend a few live meet ups with Jomar where during our activity, he would write this book. I realized how hard it is to write a book, yet it inspired me to publish mine in the near future.

My mother has read the book right after I got home from buying it at the 36th Manila International Book Fair at the SMX Convention Center. She realized she reached the middle of the book! Go check her mid-book review.
