Walang madali. Lahat kailangan pagtrabahuhan.
Sabi nga nila, nothing worth having is ever easy.
And most, if not all, successful people faced their fair share of struggles and difficulties.
Nobody is really exempted from the trials and challenges of life.
And these people with a difficult past have learned so much through life’s experiences including their own failures.
Nowadays, some people aspire to be successful without much depth and experience.
They embellish their resumes and exaggerate their achievements.
They prefer to look successful than to become successful.
This kind of approach may work for the short term.
But, dishonesty will not really help you in the long run.
Bear in mind that success without integrity is a failure.
Your future is created by what you do TODAY.
Just like Aisa.
She used to work as a factory worker and CSR at a BPO company.
Her decision to pursue freelancing was prompted by the challenges she faced in the corporate setting.
She experienced burnout and felt demotivated.
Now, she’s enjoying the benefits of working as a freelance general VA.
She’s free to work anytime and anywhere.
She’s earning more money than she can ever imagine without the need to go abroad.
She can work within the comforts of her own home and take care of her kids.
Her dreams are all coming to fruition.
Truly, the road to success comes through hard work, determination, and sacrifice.
Let’s all dream big.
And enjoy the journey.
Her perseverance, efforts, and commitment led to her breakthrough.

"Before po ako naging freelancer, naging factory worker po ako, may highschool friend ako na nagyakag sakin mag-apply sa BPO. Ayoko kasi alam ko kailangan college level, pero pwede naman daw basta marunong mag-english ng konti. Natanggap naman ako and nagtagal ng 3 years." - Aisa
Nag-Iqor ka, Aisa?
"Sa BPO, graveyard shift, ang hirap talaga, lagi akong late. Nag-LOA ako for a month, then bigla ko na lang naisip mag-resign. Siguro kasi nagkaroon ako ng polyp-nodule, and ang hirap pumasok nang alanganing oras." - Aisa
hehe... nag-IQOR din ako, Aisa. Pero kapagod ang byahe noh, lageng trapik banda sa Langkaan.
"Nahirapan na din talaga ako mag-calls nang wala akong beses, yung Team na nga lang yung kinakapitan ko dun." - Aisa
"Yung TL ko naikwento about someone na sumasahod daw ng $5/hr nagwowork sa bahay, naalala ko yun and sinearch ko about it." - Aisa
"Yung husband ko, ang laki ng tiwala sakin, kahit di niya maintindihan yung sinasabi ko. Hanggang sa nakita ko yung VA Bootcamp, nag-sign up ako sa FREE Course." - Aisa
"Then, nag-enroll ako sa Accelerated. Wala akong laptop, gumamit ako credit card, yung pinang-enroll ko inutang ko rin lang. Malakas loob ko kahit wala akong pambayad." - Aisa
Pamela Garrote sya kinukwento ko ate
Nkakatuwa naman Aisa Licmuan
"After finishing the course, nagGHC, and nagkaroon ng client, nakabayad na kami ng utang and nagtuloytuloy po." - Aisa
"Two months nabayaran naman ata namin yung mga utang." - Aisa
"Yung rejections po, countless yun, di ko talaga siguro mabibilang yun." - Aisa
"Thankful ako sa rejection, dahil dito nalaman ko kung pano ako mag-iimprove." - Aisa
Yun oh! Idol ko to eh

Paano po nawala? Wala po sya contract? Or it is possible din po na na kahit may contract, mawawala din si client?
"Don't secure your job, secure your career!" - Phoenix
Claire Mateo mommyy
"It's up to you how to make freelancing permanent. Hindi permanent yung job, pero yung career, pwedeng maging permanent." - Aisa
"Ang daming mga bagay na nagagawa ko ngayon na akala ko 'hindi ko kayang gawin, lalo na hindi ako college level." - Aisa
"Yung failure gawin mong inspiration." - Aisa
Sa ngayon Ms. Aiza ano niche mo?
"Ang pag-frefreelance ay continuous na pag-aaral yan." - Phoenix
"Advanatage ng pagiging VA, you've got to experience yung ibang skills. 'Di pa ako nag-niniche down ngayon." - Aisa
Jack of all trades yan si madam
"Dahil General VA ko, flexible ako sa mga tasks." - Aisa
Congrats, ms Aisa.
"Yung quality work is yung more than the client expects." - Aisa
"Do more than what is ecpected of you." - Aisa
"Deadline is something we take control of." - Phoenix
Kayang kaya nya yan

Here's the newly built agency of Ms Aisa Licmuan
"If gusto niyo pasukin ang freelancing, maghanap ng oras, hindi lahat susuporta sayo, kaya kailangan maging eager ka to do progress." - Aisa
"Worth it kung magtratraining ka pero magiging worth it yung kong tratrabahuhin mo." - Aisa
"Kung unmotivated ka, ang ginagawa ko nagscroll ako ng mga success stories, nakakamotivate talaga siya,." - Aisa
Thank you for sharing your experience! Nakakamotivate din
"Identify what you want, and be aggresive." -sir P
