Hi, I’m Janice. I’m a blogger and I help people create and monetize their blogs through my articles, workshops, and online courses.
Like many other people, my entry into the world of home-based endeavors was not easy. It was full of snags and hiccups, and big-time adjustments. Prior to this, I had been working in the BPO industry for 7 years!
The change in environment was a jolt to the nerves. I resigned exactly on my seventh year anniversary to focus on motherhood. Children grow so fast, and I did not want to miss out on my daughter’s most important moments.
But of course I needed to take care of the economic side. That’s what brought me into the vast world I am now presenting to you.
I had tried different gigs especially as I was starting my work-from-home stint. I had been an ad-clicker, a direct seller, a financial advisor, an English coach/consultant, and more.
I had attended several workshops, which collectively led to my current status. I had also gone through multiple courses, and have invested in different types of software. Some of them were cheap, as little as a dollar. Some of them were cruelly expensive, amounting to roughly Php 100,000.
You could say that success was an expensive journey for me, but now I have learned the ins and outs. As we go throughout this book, I will tell you more about my adventures and misadventures — and I will also tell you what to choose and what to avoid.
Over the few years I’ve been here, I have learned enough to carve my own niche in this “industry”. Aside from being able to save up for investments and a dream car, I am also now in the process of scaling my “business”. From a mere blog, I am now taking things to the next level – this book you are reading is just one of the ways I am reaching out to a wider audience. And to think that it all started just around 2014!
There are two things I thoroughly believe in —
1. There is nothing that cannot be learned with patience and practice.
2. If you know what you’re doing, the sky’s the limit.
Reflections of these two beliefs will be echoed throughout this book. You won’t need to hire expensive designers to create your website for you, and you won’t need to spend hours barking up the wrong tree while trying to attract clients.
I’ve patterned the contents of this book after my experience — and you can’t go wrong from experience.
If you are even thinking of the prospect of earning without stepping inside the office, read on. The learnings within this book changed my life. I hope it will do the same to you!
In this book, you will learn how to:
Know when it is time to quit.
How do you determine when your job is no longer working for you? Filipinos, by nature, are optimistic and resilient. However, there are times when quitting your current track is the best option in order to begin something even better. You will learn how to determine your stress levels, and what are causing them. Do you know there are two kinds of stress? You shouldn’t be avoiding stress altogether, but if an overwhelming and uncontrollable portion of it comes from your job, then you should think twice.
Identify the Pros and Cons of working at home.
It’s not all sunshine and roses, but neither is it the cold isolation that many people make it out to be. You will learn how to determine if working from home is suitable for you. Also, you will learn how to make the work-from-home environment as ideal as possible — you wouldn’t want your housemates disturbing you every two minutes.
Make most of the “Magic” moment.
Motivational speaker Shep Hyken popularized the notion of turning “moments of misery” into “moments of magic”. What happens when you decide to finally quit your job, and establish a work-from-home practice? It is a moment of misery, normally. For many, the feeling is akin to jumping off a ledge and not knowing if there is anything there to catch you. If you feel like this, that’s when you know you’re doing it wrong! I will teach you the right way to take off on your new career.
Go through with the transition process.
What are the things you will deal with when you finally quit? You will learn about the most common snags you may hit, as well as how to avoid them. You will also learn how to stay on track when you are hardest hit.
Establish your new identity.
Being able to successfully work from home is like a badge. You earned it — but it’s not over. Like any endeavor, this set up will fall apart unless you follow through. You will learn about the many strategies you can use to attract growth in your new role. You will also find some valuable resources that can help you in establishing control over your new lifestyle.
Find the work-at-home job that suits you.
Remember this: whatever you can do at the office, you can do at home — and more. You will learn the different things you can do:
Home based customer service representative
Online teacher (ESL, etc.)
- Admittedly, some of these jobs are those you have already heard before. And yet there are those that you might not have been expecting, such as “online expert/consultant”. What are the platforms you can use? From using established routes such as Upwork (a merging of industry leaders eLance and ODesk), to free blogs, to taking the premium road and creating your own WordPress site under your own domain name, I have you covered. If you wish to drastically improve your productivity, I will also be giving you some tools you can use to supercharge your time.
Whichever field you choose, I will give you important success tips. And of course, you need to learn how to avoid scams — according to sources, there are 61 scams for every legitimate online job opportunity. You should know what to watch out for!
Expand your entrepreneurship.
At home, you are your own boss. But that also often means you are your own. As you grow, you would need people to help you. Getting people from the family may be fun (and wouldn’t cost you much), but it’s not always an ideal set up. You will need others — and that will lead you into the next step of your growth — leadership. You will learn where to get the help you need, as well as how to manage them effectively.
This book was meant to be a one-stop shop, leading you from the point when you decide to drop your job to the point where you’re earning as much as — and even greater than — what you used to own as a corporate thrall.
Are you excited? You should be! You are taking the road many people fear to travel. I have been there, so let me be your guide.
Plus, I will share with you my experience on how I earn from home as a Blogger and how you too can create your blog from scratch even if you don’t have any programming background or tech skills and I’ll teach you some strategies to monetize your blog. Sounds interesting?
