Becoming a writer was a childhood dream and I can’t believe that I finally achieved it just by starting as a part-time gig while I was busy working in the government and being a mom to my two daughters (now 3).
Dati, isang buwan kong pinagtatrabahuan ang 10,000 pesos, ngayon, sa isa o dalawang article lang na isinulat ko ng less than 5 hours, kaya kong kitain ito.
And because of this privilege to earn enough, I also managed to write a book for a cause since I have extra time to do it..
STILL without sacrificing time for my family..
But I did NOT feel victorious right off the bat.
One Saturday, out of my NEED to earn extra, I went to an internet cafe and started applying to freelance writing jobs. I sent not just 1 but more than 10 applications and I did that every Saturday or Holiday.
One time, someone replied, and said I was hired!
Of course, I was so happy and surprised, I stood up covering my mouth not to scream and almost turned down the plastic monoblock chair I was sitting on inside my suki’s internet cafe.
After working on and submitting his articles, I realized
…I was SCAMMED! He ghosted me and never responded to my messages.
The number one reason this happened was, I didn’t ACTUALLY know what I was doing. Next, I had no clear purpose as to why I am doing this – I just needed an extra income, that’s it!
Aside from being scammed, I also experienced other struggles such as several rejections, very weak internet connection, lack of time, and getting low-paying clients.
Rejections, getting scammed, and getting low-paying clients made me even doubt my abilities.
If you are in any of these situation right now, please know that I understand exactly how you are feeling…
I would love to help you!

one day, you are able to support your advocacies, write your own book, and do a self-care whenever you want?
It may sound impossible to create Time and Energy if your plate is already full at the moment, right? But you can actually do this so you can achieve bigger chunks of results rather than tidbits of several things. And, how about if you are able to spot distractions that don’t contribute to your success? Isn’t that amazing?
Do you find it hard to say goodbye to OLD habits and beliefs? or Are you doubting your actions and capabilities? Believe that your purpose is stronger than any fear that you will encounter along your journey. Do this so you feel freedom in taking action on necessary tasks so that you can still see progress and feel motivated even if you don’t feel so.
Is it hard to attract the ideal market that you want to serve? Are you even clear of who you want to serve and what you can offer? Get clarity on your specific market and offer so that you know what to focus on in terms of growth. Not only that, you’ll save even more time and energy by not using it to clients who don’t actually need your service.
You don’t have an experience? Make one. Simple. Once you do this using the strategies and ways that I will share with you, you’ll definitely boost your confidence even more and start winning clients even before you notice it.
Feel even more confident and fueled with skills that will help you help your clients even more! Why? You’ll want to leave a good impression because you don’t know what else is in store for you!
You want to monetize your passion for writing because you want to be the change in this belief “Walang pera sa pagsusulat.”
YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS because you don’t want to be on your desk working long hours every single day just to earn more but sacrificing precious time with your family or kids.
YOU ARE WILLING TO COMMIT AT LEAST ONE HOUR A DAY TO LEARN AND TAKE ACTION because you know you can only win your freelance writing client if you do something consistently
You have tried strategies in the past to start a freelance writing side gig but still can’t close a $100 or $200 dollar per article project
You are like the hare (kuneho) who only wants to get to the finish line first without doing the necessary steps – in short, if you are looking for a QUICK way to earn an INSTANT 6-figure a month, this ain’t for you
You already KNOW what SPECIFIC actions to take
You are NOT willing to set aside time to CHANGE what you had been doing in the past even if you know that you’ll be in the same situation after 5 years because of it.
You EASILY give up and don’t want to study what went wrong in your business.
