“Hindi kita gustong paghintayin, sadyang marami lang kayo sa queue ko. Isa-isa lang.” - Call center agent.
Sad, but that’s the reality for most, if not all call center agents.
Overworked, stressed out, and some burned out.
Struggle is real talaga ang peg nila but they still do it.
They still wake up everyday and endure it.
Even if they’re complaining and whining about it, they choose to do so because they want to provide for their families and loved ones.
It’s okay for them to make some sacrifices as long as they know they can provide a better life and future for their loved ones.
Hindi na nila masyadong iniisip yun traffic, commuting issues, at yun ulan or bagyo.
However, some people still decide to quit this rat race.
Not because they don’t love their family anymore.
Or they don’t care about their future anymore.
But they’ve realized that there better options out there.
That they can both earn and have more time for themselves and their family as well.
They can have the best of both worlds.
They just need to take a big leap of faith.
Get out of their comfort zones.
Believe in themselves more.
And take ACTION.
Just like Liz.
She used to work as a call center agent and team manager for six years.
However, the demands of motherhood and child care prompted her to become a stay-at-home mom.
She tried to work again in the BPO setup but her physical and mental health suffered.
She became a stay-at-home mom again and tried working as an ESL teacher.
The pay was small and not enough to help with her family’s financial situation.
In her desperation, she discovered the world of freelancing/VAs and was able to land her first VA job in an agency.
She was able to earn 6 digits with just one client alone but her mental health suffered greatly due to stress and pressure.
After taking a break and getting motivation from her family, she was able to get new clients.
Her road to success and good health was paved with struggles and challenges.
But, now she’s enjoying the freedom of time, flexibility, and unlimited earning potential as a freelance VA.
Truly, the difference between the impossible and the possible is a man’s determination.
It takes a lot of sweat, determination, and hard work to make a dream into reality.
Victory is always possible for people who do not know how to give up.
Her hard work, determination, and persistence led to her victory.
