From a simple full time employee to an earning freelancer mommy

Whew! really can’t imagine myself now from a simple full time employee in a Construction Industry and turns into a freelancer Mom (blessed). Well, I know GOD has a reason why he made it happened to me.

Let me share you some story how it happens.

After my career as a Technical Assistant/Project Architect in a Project Management Firm located in Makati City from 2007-2008, that was during my pregnancy period, I decided to end my commitment to the company and take some rest for a few months.

After giving birth with a baby girl named “Vash Fernandez-Baluyut” (fave anime character of my hubby), After only a month, I decided to get back to work and start applying to another job related on my career. Although, wounds from CS method of giving birth are still fresh, nothing would stop me for my eagerness to find a job as soon as possible.

After a days, good news at last. New career buzz up. I am now working as a Project Architect in a Construction Firm. It was 6 km. away from our home along Caloocan City, 1 ride specifically (thanks GOD!).

Working and working and working…but sadly, accepted the fact that it’s really not enough to sustain our financial needs. Thinking and thinking any alternative ways and hoping someone can help me to find any other ways to earn cash but unluckily, no one but me, myself and I.

Lunch break, I’ve decided to explore the net and try to google if there are part time jobs or any earning opportunities posted online. Surprisingly, a lot! and believe me, I’m almost hook on scammer’s advert.

I’ve tried a lot of part time jobs and earning opportunities online. Have engaged in PTC’s and GPT’s…imagine $0.01 per click! duh?! erase!erase!
and Finally, searching is over and I’ve landed into a Freelance Online Staffing Marketplace called oDesk!

Now, aside from my earnings on my current job as a full time employee, I’m also receiving bucks from my oDesk account. I work part time in oDesk and earns $350/month. Not so big (remember its a part time) but Not bad right?

Well..internet world is really unexpected. I, myself was amazed by its concept. Now I can see myself as a proud full time employee and a freelancer Mom.

Signing off,

    I’m happy that your work is going well, but it’s a shame that you think some “god” or other had anything to do with this. Don’t waste your life Charlot. You only have one!

      I don’t know exactly what you mean with your words Martyn but thanks for taking time to read my story. Maybe we’re just on different outlooks and beliefs in life. Ow! BTW, I’m not wasting my life, “not even a cents of it”, your shoes not fits mine, so don’t tell me what should I do.
