Giving up a good-paying online job

I resigned from my online job as a Content Marketer for an Australia-based web development company a month ago. When you think about it, nothing about my decision makes sense. The job was a lot of things many Filipino online workers hope for. I was receiving good pay and I had a kind employer who fairly appreciated the efforts I put into the company. So why give up all that, right? The decision didn’t come easy, honestly.

It’s not everyday that you sign up for a workshop and come home with exactly the learning you hoped to get from it; but that’s what I got when I attended Spiralytics’ and Make it blissful‘s Online Marketing for Success workshop at Slate Creative Studio in Boni avenue, Mandaluyong.

I’ve been reading a lot on digital marketing because it’s my job. I’ve also attended workshops, but it’s one thing to know all these principles and […]

Tips from a Maid-less Work-at-Home-Mom

Note: I first posted this blog in September of 2011 when my two older children were six and two while our youngest was 9 months old. When I transferred to WordPress in August of 2012, I reposted it in the new blog but didn’t make any effort to share it until now. Many moms have been asking me again lately how I am able to accomplish the things that I accomplish with three active little boys, a full time online job and no helper. So I’ve decided to re-share this – my (not-so) secrets to getting things done. It still […]

These people are not just employees of position in […]
