  1. Phoenix , Anna, Janina Perez, Karen and Ruben: I have a friend, senior citizen land retired. May I ask your HELP by requesting where and who she can get in touch with because she wants to help out for those in need of a writer or to train out writers for offices or agencies. Having worked for executive Officers / CEOS both in private and government offices; including as a speech writer, she hopes to be able to reach out and help out others. Presently she is based in Subic.

    1. Jemilah Anonuevo Dolosa If you feel Php 50/hr is low for the skills you have, don't be afraid to charge more. At the end of the day, sabi nga ni Sir Ruben, it's what we bring to the table. Kung kaya natin i-justify yung rate na we think we deserve, go ahead lang. 🙂

      But if, say, super dali, like what Ms. Anna said, and you want to gain something for your protfolio lang and it won't take up so much of your time, pwede rin naman. Kasi kung super dali and mabilis mo lang matatapos, you can grab another job naman din. 🙂

  2. Hello po...ako nga kahit $2 lang sana basta makakuha na ako ng first client pag meron lang mag offer I'll grab it talaga not for the money but for the actual job experience po...

  3. hi gd pm...I very thankful to have opportunity to watch this video live... let me ask about UpWork...since I was became active in on that... it's hard for me to get client until my connects becomes zero.... is there any way to have more connects? thank you..

  4. I am a social media marketer back then year 2011 to 1016 under oDesk now upwork. I already have good track record on my profile through my clients feedback, but sad thing was na stop po ako for a couple of years.. planning to go back last year but then cant get a repiable client there is a lot of requirements sa upwork palang need to buy connects..

    1. Junno Bernardez Look into your existing skill sets po. 🙂

      Magaling ka ba magorganize ng mga reports at sumagot ng emails? Maybe you can try General VA.

      May experience ka ba sa real estate, cold calling at appointment setting? Try Real Estate VA.

      Mahilig kang magsulat at dati kang member ng school paper nyo? Try ghostwriting or content writing. (This was how I started po. Wala akong journalism degree. Pero member po ako ng school paper from high school to college. Nagamit ko pa rin as experience.)

      Finance-related ang dating work sa corporate pero hindi accountant? Learn bookkeeping (if you don't know yet) tapos apply ka as bookkeeper.

      Hindi Fine Arts grad pero skillful sa Photoshop/Illustrator? Apply as graphics designer. 🙂

  5. Pwede din na you do your research inside sa freelancing platform so you can identify sa iba ung skills mo and mag ka idea ka how much they charge. Kung newbie pde sha ibaba or ipantay.
