10 Things To Keep You Sane When Your Freelance Job Ends

You'll open up your email one day and you'll find amongst the unread, a notification that your project is now closed. Only a few days ago, the client was chatting with you on how well the project has been working out. And yet, now you see this message. You closed your eyes, pinched yourself, walked out to the sun, and yes, it wasn't a dream. It's real. The one source of income that you expect to feed your family is now gone. What in the world should you do next? This scenario is not something...

Freelancer’s Relocation Checklist

Many of you are probably on the same boat where I am right now, renting a place where you have your office and family in just one roof.

Checklist for A Wannabe Freelancer

Deciding to go on a full time freelance work takes more than just the guts to go on a career adventure. There is a massive financial risk involved and a ton of preparation that needs to be settled before you can fully say that you are ready and good to go. There are more factors in the package than what meets the eye. And realistically, freelance home based job is not all good times. If you are just starting today, that is even of greater concern because the risk is twice than the risk involved...

10 Ways to Freelance Effectively

When your  clients don’t get what they want, don’t see the results you have promised, this is a sign that you are being ineffective. And who does want to be told they are ineffective? Not one in his sane mind would desire to hear these words. But they do come, sometimes subtly. Let’s face it, you’ve (actually we’ve) messed up with one or two of our projects in the past. Whether it’s bigtime or not, we’ve had our days when we are ineffective and complacent. It’s not a secret....

Project Jobs Fit (Part I)

"Many fresh graduates have a hard time finding jobs because their skills and educational background do not fit the needs of businesses" Whether you agree or not with the above statement by the Bureau of Local Employment (BLE), let's face it, finding a job is not as easy as you think it is. And getting an education doesn't even guarantee a job for you in the future. It's really difficult to pinpoint the main culprit in this case because there is a myriad of reasons and a million other factors...

Is Online Freelancing The Right Job for You?

I did have the same hesitations and questions at the back of my mind before I started my own freelancing. I'm sure it is the same with you at this very moment. It's really difficult to put your hands on the rein when you have a stable job, a regular pay and a good benefit. But then again, the question is, IS FREELANCING FOR YOU? Job Satisfaction Many people walk to their offices and perform their duties with a heavy shoulder because they are no longer satisfied with what they are doing, their...

Shopaholic Freelancer: From Spending to Investing

I know it's easy to remind people not to buy this or that, but the impulse is really difficult to resist. Because more often than not, it is more tempting to splurge on your wants when you have the money rather than to think on how to wisely spend your hard earned income. So I'm changing that style. As they say, if you can't beat them, join them. Go ahead, BUY BUY BUY! But before you indulge read through the shopping list I've prepared for you. Then go ahead and enjoy your shopping...
Why I left the Call center

Why I Left the Call Center

Call centers in the Philippines, India or any other outsourcing destination bring a new breath of hope for a decent earning employment. And yes, I am one of those people who've been blessed to have worked for over three years in this thriving industry. But I left the call center completely and never looked back again. At first, I was hesitant to leave my job at Aegis People Support, one of the biggest call center here in Cebu City. With two growing kids in tow, a house rental to think, no...

Get a Job, Keep the Job!

If getting a job is a challenge, keeping a client is a feat. That's what I've learned from the seemingly horrible experience of financial crisis. Many strive to get a job, but few has the wisdom to keep those clients. Many get hired for weeks or months but few last for years, nor get a repeat transaction. If you are having this same problem you are not alone. You've probably thought life is so unfair and employers are opportunists, taking advantage of the employment drought. But that is not...
