Believe me when I say that I am always grateful to my mentor, Jomar Hilario, every time he is giving me an opportunity to share my virtual professional journey.
Recently, I shared to the participants of his latest Ask Me Anything Marathon Webinar how I prepared our house, bedroom and family for my virtual career. Looking back, it was an exceptional journey. It never occurred to me that I would be able to experience preparing for my virtual career journey, let alone sharing it. I used to hear other virtual professionals prepared their house, bedroom and family for my virtual career.
Everything went on smoothly during my audio test with Isabelle Cuenco (one of Jomar’s virtual professionals) days before the webinar. However, nothing prepared me for the live webinar.
I think some of the webinar attendees forgot what my topic was about and remembered just one person: my Papa.
I shared with the webinar participants some stories about my father, with the objective of allowing family members to know a little bit about what a virtual professional does (and bond with them as well).
Judging with the responses that Jomar released from his recent blog, a few shed a tear on my story. Here they are:
Eventually, as one of the participants shared why she cried, I (gasped!) found myself having a lump on my throat and water in my eyes.
Oh. My. God. Am I about to make myself cry?
And as Jomar said, “Success leaves tracks.” So I guess the crying moment goes with that, too.
Not complaining, by the way.
