Becoming a Homebased Entrepreneur / Freelancer / Self-employed

Yeap! You read it right! I am busy learning and trying to become a homebased entrepreneur/freelancer/self-employed. Why not? I tried being a Corporate Slave for the past 12 years and it got me nowhere. I still don’t have a lot of money, no nice car, my dreamhouse still remained in my dreams. At this point, I’d like to try out something else. Something that:

– will allow me to become my own boss
– will allow me to do things in my own time and my own way
– will allow me to have limitless earning potential
– will allow me to do worthwhile things for the mankind

Not easy but I am enjoying and learning a lot, so wish me loads of GOOD LUCK! Let’s do this!

My Life So Far

My life so far is just…so-so.

Wow I’m almost halfway through my life and still, I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished great things over the past years. I do not consider myself a failure, not a succes either. I haven’t done many bad things, I haven’t done a lot of good things either. My life so far is just so-so. My state of mind is stucked at age 27, but when I check myself in the mirror…my youthful glow is slowly vanishing hahaha, why I look very matured?? LOLs. I failed to realize that I am getting old! In fact, I get surprised every time I tell myself that I am 34 already ! WAITTTT WHAAAT!!!?? I am 34??? How?? So that explains why whenever I stand up after a few minutes of sitting, I could feel my knees trembling and aching. I hope it’s not early signs of rheumatism. What have I been doing all these years? All these time I thought I am living to have a good life, instead, I am living because I am not dead yet. You get it, no? My life isn’t all that bad, ok. It’s just that, right now, when I look back at my life, I wish I had done this and that sooner. Not regretting those past choices I made, ok maybe, I am regretting a little, but hey, I still have plenty of time, right? 34 compared to 80 is still very young.

I used to say “I want to do many things” often and I believe, I was able to do that. I travelled, fell in and out of love (naksss), learned how to cook, rebonded and colored my hair, bought a nice phone, ate whatever I want etc. In other words, I lived a convenient self-centered life all these time! But from this day onwards, I want to try doing many WORTHWHILE things for the mankind!  CHAROT! HAHHAHA.

Seriously, I don’t want to end up selfish, miserable, useless and unhealthy so I am committing myself to doing a few extraordinary things like joining a cause, donating blood, 10 sit-ups/day, green tea everyday, eating less rice/sugar/salt, show random act of kindness, practice my singing and dancing, continue learning etc. I know it’s not going to be easy that’s why I am hesitating hahaha but I’m up for the challenge!

My life is bound to change soon. How’s your life so far?

Woke up early, ate my favorite pandesal for breakfast, wore a white top and comfortable slippers and went outside to explore! Went to Ali Mall to have my pictures taken again (for remembrance haha). I’m not really a make up person but this day, I put some BB cream, powder, blush on and eye shadow on my fezz just because I want to feel prettyful lolsssss once in a while. Window shopping, went to Dermcare to buy some stuff, then Grow Nails to have footspa, buy a file organizer from National Bookstore, went to the office (OFFICE??? YES!) to 5S my locker then CCF in Ortigas to attend their 6:30PM Sunday service! I was soooo close to going to Ongpin instead and look for Dong Bei Restaurant, fortunately, I decided I better go to church na lang!

Thank you God for your words. I am sooo busy trying to manage my life that I’ve forgotten to pause and listen to You and Your plans in my life.

Day 2 – Tiring trip to Manila

Yesterday was very tiring. Weather was sooo hot and sticky but I was out traversing the roads of Manila. Started my day early and went straight ahead to my alma mater in Sta.Mesa to get TOR. There I unexpectedly met someone very important! It was really really surprising! Waaaah that’s some 10 years that I’ll never get back. Then I had my long overdue dental checkup in Espana. My eyes feasted on those fascinating old  houses around Espana, they’re soooo beautiful to look at. I hope they get preserved or restored. Lastly, went to Quiapo to buy beads again, leather wallets for men, umbrella (I lost the one I had while in school yesterday), some fruits and brocolli. Tiring but I feel I accomplished a lot of things yesterday so I’m happy. Haven’t felt like that for many many years now.

Today’s agenda is…beading and wire jewelry making! Let’s do this!

5-Day Itinerary To Enjoy Your Singlehood

I am on a 5-day VL starting tomorrow! Yessss!

I’m planning to catch up on sleep, rest and eat well but it looks like I’ll be very busy. Here’s my itinerary for this vacay:

Day 1: Photowalk with myself??! LOLS. Planning to drop by in Quiapo to buy brocolli because it’s cheaper there and some beads. Might also drop by in Ongpin to look for the Dong Bae Restaurant and try their famous dumplings. Tomorrow, I will prove to the world that being alone doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be lonely. Muahaha

Day 2: Go to BPI to inquire about index funds. Liz told me to invest in index funds instead of mutual funds. Based on what I googled, for people like me who do not have time and expertise to study stock market, it is the best way to invest. Returns are not as great as other equity funds BUT, it is the safest. I have very limited knowledge about investing so I’ve been reading investment ebooks these past days because I really really want to save as much money as I can for my future (I need to buy at least 2 haciendas hahahah) I realized if I just put my money in the bank, it’ll only earn a few cents of interest. So if I want to be able achieve my finacial goals, I need to start investing ASAP. Had I done this years ago, I would have been rich and famous by now lols. I’ve joined forums, downloaded free ebooks about financial management, read online resources and now my head is aching trying to learn various investment strategies. The simplest is Binary Option Trading also called all-or-nothing options. They can be very rewarding but very risky. This is how it works:

You purchase a 100$ stocks with a payoff of 1000$. If the stock trading is at 100$ or higher, you get 1000$! If stock trading is below 100$, you get nothing.

Very very risky but exciting, don’t you think? It’s also easier to understand. I wanna try it someday. CedarFinance offer this new trading strategy online. They also provide personal account managers who can work closely with you to ensure you’re getting all the help you needed when trading.

Yes, the day after tomorrow will be spent searching and attarcting money, lots and lots of money in my life!

Day 3: Apply 5S at home! I seriously need to declutter my apartment – bathroom, kitchen, and my living room! I’ve already done de-cluttering my room last week. Took me hours to finish! Do the laundry. Clean my room (I might have a roommate next week!). Throwing away those extra baggages. This day will be all about organizing whatever’s not organize in my life!

Day 4: Sunday! Attend morning service (7AM) in Day by Day Christian Ministry in Folk Arts!  Lord, I will seek you early in the morning and late at night! This day will be for Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

Day 5: Pedicure, spa, whole body massage, derma lols, glutathione haha, and everything else! Day 5 will be all about me, myself and my me-self attitude LOLS.

Tomorrow onwards, I plan to really really enjoy myself, start living a healthy lifestyle, be productive, become more appreciative, practice 5S in my life, get closer to God and move towards my goals!!!
