Most of us, if not all of us have experienced rock bottom in one way or another.

It may seem bleak and tiresome but we need to realize that there’s no other way but UP when we’re at the bottom.

Yes, it’s difficult and challenging but we still need to keep on moving forward.

Easier said than done but taking action, even one small step at a time, is better than being stuck.

Don’t dwell on disappointments too much.

Take a look at the positives and keep looking ahead.

Never lose hope.

Meet Margielyn.

She worked as a call center agent, administrative assistant, clerk, bank teller, and real estate agent.

She wanted to earn more but at the same time be present for her two toddlers.

She also wanted her OFW husband to stay home and be with the family.

Her journey in freelancing wasn’t easy, she felt scammed out of her Php 10,000 for a course that she never used and didn’t gain any knowledge from.

She also struggled with balancing her time at work and at home.

As a result, she felt so down and depressed.

She thought freelancing is not meant for her.

In 2021, she discovered FLIP and its courses.

Despite her qualms, she decided to avail of VAB courses and continued on her freelancing journey.

Now, she can help pay their monthly bills on time and save some money as well.

She has more time to take care of her kids and still works as a real estate agent and online freelancer.

Her fear and setbacks didn’t stop her from going after her dreams.

She still took a risk and waited patiently for her breakthrough.

Her courage, hard work, and persistence led to her breakthrough and freedom.

  1. "Nag-abroad yung asawa ko. Tapos ako nasa bahay lang. Nung time na yun hanap ako ng hanap ng paraan, kailangan makahanap ako ng trabaho na talagang sasagot sa mga pangangailangan sa trabaho and bata." - Margielyn

  2. "Kakaresearch ko, may napanood ako na overpromising video. NAg-enroll ako 10k, pero nung nandun nako, di ko nagustuhan. Nasayang yung 10k ko, ang laking panghihinayang." -Margielyn

  3. "So, nagresearch ulit ako. 2021, nakita ko yung FLIP. So nakita ko about freelancing, yung FREE Courses. Nagkaroon ako ng interest. Tapos nanood ako ng mga FREE Webinars, paano magawa ng Upwork Account and paano magawa ng Cover Letter." - Margielyn

  4. "May nakapansin naman sa Cover Letters ko, pero ang daming tinatanong, ang hirap pala ng ganoong moment, masaya ka na sana eh, pero ano yung pinagtatanong nila, parang bigla akong napa-stop. Dun ko narealize kulang pa yung alam ko. Kaya nag-enroll ako sa VA Bootcamp." - Margielyn

  5. "Natapos ko yung course, in 3 weeks lang. Tapos nag-start ako mag-apply, pero wala pa rin ako makuha client. So nag-apply ako as a marketing internship, actual tasks, actual work, tuturuan ka maging responsible. Nadevelop yung character ko." - Margielyn

  6. "Tapos nagGuided Hustle Challenge naman ako. Kailangan ko talaga ibuild up ko pa sarili ko. Kasi eto yung gusto kong gawin, work tapos naaalgaan ko mga anak ko." - Margielyn

  7. "Natuto ako na kailangan ko labanan, kasi ganun talaga ang freelancing. Naghustle ako ulit. Kailangan maging matatag ako. Yung feeling mo na nasaktan ka, pero babangon ka pa rin." - Margielyn

  8. "Para sa akin, kapag gusto mo ng isang bagay, kahit ano pang nasa paligid mo, hindi mo siya papansinin. May struggles, pero mga pagsubok yan na magpapatatag sa yo." - Margie

  9. “From the very beginning of your freelancing career, alamin mo na kung anong gusto mong gawin, kung anong trabaho ang gusto mo, hindi yung mag-aantay ka ng trabahong darating.” - Phoenix

  10. I just got hired ponsa bpo this month. But , I need to work on-site din pala. I do not doubt VA bootcamp. It is just that I really do not have enough time. Right now. I am at work while listening/watching/interacting here.

  11. "Kung andyan kayo nagda-doubt, kung hindi kayo magtatanong, hindi kayo magreresearch pero andyan ang doubt nyo, mananatili lang kayo dyan. Go ask anybody na may alam sa VAB. Freelancing is open for everybody." -sir Phoenix

  12. “Gusto mong maging freelancer pero may doubt kayo, do research and magtanong kayo. Go and ask our VAB graduates, then it is up to you to assess and decide. Be diligent.” - Phoenix
