How I Became an Accidental Transcriptionist

Back in 1998, my sister Rebecca studied computer secretarial in one of the colleges in Olongapo City. One of her subjects is stenography and typing. She bought an old typewriter and a bunch of lessons on typing. Then she would start working through her lesson, pressing through the rugged keys on the typewriter. It clacked and cracked on afternoons and evenings while I look on her and see her just have her eyes on the copy while her fingers find their way to the different keys on the keyboard. I...

Why The First Step to Freelancing is Difficult and What You Can Do About It

It's always the first step that starts anything big. Remember when you were just starting at this puppy love thing? When you were just staring at your long time high school crush. Yes, that's exactly how it is. You wanted to go for it, but hey, the devil whispers a lot of ifs and buts and you cringe in fear of rejection and that big NO; so you stop and just stare. And the next thing you know, she's your best friend's girlfriend. We'll, that's for illustration only, but it can surely happen in...

Certified Freelance Podcast

In the next few days, I'll be releasing the first episode of The Certified Freelance Podcast. It's my long awaited personal project that I've finally manage to put together. Late last year when I've started planning to push this through but I got a bit busy with different projects. So this year, I've determined to put this into reality.  I believe stories make bigger impact in people's lives than we could ever think of. And podcast makes it such a convenient way to spread out life...

How to Apply for NBI Clearance Online

The news about the availability of NBI Clearance online application is a good welcome to 2014. It does not (yet) totally make the whole process internet based but it will greatly reduce the time you will have to spend to get a new clearance. And for a someone who works at home, gets paid by the hour, every second saved counts. This is definitely a good start for the bureau (and hopefully the other government offices will follow suit) to finally utilize the full power of the internet in making...

What Happens When Elance and oDesk Merge?

One of the questions I've raised before is "Which is the better freelance site, oDesk or Elance?" That is of course not a very easy one to answer. For one, they both have their unique qualities that one would prefer than the other. It never came to mind what if oDesk and Elance will merge into one freelance site just like what Freelancer and it's acquisition of smaller sites like Scriptlance.  But truth is, there's no more speculation about the merge because oDesk and Elance have already...

How to Avoid Death by Overwork

Being overworked can be fatal. And that's the sad truth on what happened with  Indonesian copywriter, Mita Diran. In the last tweet that Mita Diran posted last December 14 on her Twitter handle @mitdoq, she tweeted that she's been working 30 hours and still going strong. Then news came out. According to her father Yani Syahrial, Mita went into coma after working continuously for 3 days.  Eventually, she died on December 15 after suffering heart failure as a result of a combination of long...

Health Insurance for Freelancers – Why Philhealth is Not Enough

When I was working in the call center, my family enjoyed the benefits of a Maxicare insurance. It covered both outpatient services as well as admissions. The maximum benefit is an eye popping half a million for me, i just don't remember the exact figure for my dependents but it's a solid health plan for all of us at that time. And I tell you, some of my coworkers did love the fact that when they get sick, they will be in a private room accommodation without any worries about the bill. That is...
