I watched the movie days after Captain America: Civil War started its production. See, I really can delay rewards.
I just watched the Avengers: Age of Ultron last week. I really can delay rewards, especially if it is watching a movie. I watched it for two reasons: one, I realized that once Tomorrowland and Pitch Perfect 2 hit the theaters, Avengers 2 might be bumped off the cinemas; two, I got a new client to work with.
A new client! I got the latest opportunity from OnlineJobs.ph.
When I finally watched the movie, I realized another reason: LESSONS! For those of you who will be joining the Date with Freedom: Virtual Career Summit and Seminar, these lessons are for you. Continue reading

Not only was I able to grace the weekly webinar of my mentor, Jomar Hilario recently. I was also able to teach other virtual career workers skills on visuals!
I was privileged to be a guest in the webinar for the third time, this time showing the participants the 7 visual ideas that can increase social engagement. I learned them from my former client, Marcus Ho, who was just happy to know that the webinar went well.
To make sure the webinar attendees understood what they learned, I asked them to choose 4 out of 7 visual ideas that they prefer and look for examples for each visual. As of this writing, the attendees are still posting their assignment outputs in the Facebook Groups where we belong (You smashed it, guys! Good job!)
To my surprise, Jomar asked me to demo how I created a visual bullet using Canva. This happened after I mentioned during the webinar that I will be creating a visual out of the 3 success lessons from Manny Pacquiao (discussed in the webinar). Well, I was happy to oblige.
The webinar replay is featured in the Date with Freedom website as of this writing. But if a new webinar is up, no worries. Here are the videos (now in three-part series!).
A few weeks ago, I decided to do the what I thought was unthinkable: consume 60 ODesk connects.
It was unthinkable for me at first because a few years back, I only consume 25 connects. Adding 35 connects (making it 60 if you ODesk profile is complete) is one of the latest features of ODesk.
60 seemed a lot that 25. But then, I decided to go for it.
It took me 4 days to consume the connects because I only applied to the online jobs every night. I finally consumed it on a Saturday night. After consuming all connects, I decided that I still got the groove on so I consumed my People Per Hour credits as well.
A few days later, I got an interview notice from ODesk. I was interviewed two days after. Then, I got hired!
So here’s the tip: consume your credits in any way you can. No need to cry if you got declined; just replace them by looking for another online job. Chances are, you will find a client to work with.
Somebody’s back to ODesk!
In this another video blog done via iMovie, I talk about the aftermath of the “firing” and walking story.
I created this video from iMovie! Pardon the ums, ahs, and the grammar confusions. I hope to do better next time.
To be honest, I am still in the process of recovering from spent energy when I joined the Work from Home Booth Volunteers during last week’s Wealth Summit. But it was all worth it because I got to bond with my co-booth volunteers, rub shoulders with the speakers and The Feast personalities, and learn from some of the Wealth Summit talks.
Jomar gave us instructions on how to invite people to the Work from Home booth. He brought his two pieces of mobile whiteboard and provided us with messages: two for those who are interested to work from home as virtual assistants (the programs offered are VA Summit 2015 and VA 202) and two for business persons who would like to increase their sales online using Facebook ads (the current strategy discussed for the Marketing Success Formula). Since the time we joked about the messages as “A/B testing of Facebook Ads”, we never stopped using the Facebook Ad terms.
So to recap the wonderful two-day experience, here is how ads are run – outside Facebook. Continue reading

The good thing about Unbounce is it captures the leads (e-mail addresses and other data that you asked from your audience) from the site then you can download it via Excel. But you can avoid the long version of downloading the data from Unbounce to uploading it to your e-mail storage through integration. Continue reading
A few days ago, I could not past me Facebook pixel to the thank you page that I created. When I went to the VA 202 Facebook Group, I noticed that some of them are also experiencing the same thing.
I thank Ralph Solomon for helping me figure out how to copy my Facebook pixel. After I’m done, I shared the steps to the group.
