I can’t believe it! It was only a year ago since I resigned from my call center job to become a Virtual Assistant, which is more commonly known as a Work At Home profession. Did I accomplish a lot in one year as a VA? A big YES!
At first, I was looking forward to reach my first 100 hours in oDesk. Then 500 hours. Next was my 1,000th hour. Awesome, right? ‘Til now, it is a roller coaster ride, just like any other office work. I just prayed so hard for wisdom, courage, and optimism to progress and prosper in this field so that I can reach my dreams. Once you experience working at home, you’ll never look back.
Let me quickly share with you this one specific moment to inspire you. One of the MANY things I enjoy is having the luxury to work while playing with my nephew, Clide. My multitasking strategy to be able to work and play was to ask him to role-play as my office mate. It worked! =)
Now that I am done with my first year, what’s next? Through the help of my mentor Jomar Hilario, I was able to accomplish numerous things on my “to do” list, which I WILL continue to do this year. Writing down your goals, plans, AND dreams, is the first step.
Here’s my work station at home.
This is my official spot at home. For me, having your own designated work station helps you focus more on your tasks or goals. During a more relaxed day, I work in the living room while looking after my ill dad, or at the bedroom where I can watch television or watch over my nephew doing siesta.
You’ll notice two strips of colorful paper pinned with round magnets on my whiteboard. Those are my pathway to a MORE prosperous 2013. See? I told you I will continue to accomplish many things this year! Planning helps me get there.
I am eager to learn more things and become a better person this year.
How about you? Have you accomplished your goals from 2012? Did your “to do” list reflect more strikes than unmarked ones? Have you spent quality time with your family or mostly just worked for money?
YOU can make things happen differently this 2013! Earn more money, spend more time with family, gain more knowledge, experience, and motivation this year.
