My Payoneer card is here!

After two unsuccessful deliveries using their free delivery service, my Payoneer card finally arrived! I primarily applied for a Payoneer account so I can get paid by US companies for my affiliate sales and freelance earnings. Not all Payoneer card holders can get paid by US companies. You have to apply for their US Payment Service and get approved for it before you can receive money from US companies. I

Don’t cheat your clients!

I was recently referred by my client to another business owner who needed VA services. In her terms, she would share me for a while (although it is entirely a different contract) because they need someone reliable to continue the work the other VA did. There was nothing wrong with the VA’s work except that she logged in more hours than necessary. If you are familiar with the Elance or

The Coworking Trend: Working at Home and Café No More

This is a guest post written by Anna Garcia of Regus Philippines. Thank you Anna! Inside a coffee shop, you will encounter several types of people. There are the students who are either studying for tests or just enjoying a few moments of peace. There are also the young adults who are indulging in casual conversations. If you frequent cafés though, you’ll likely spot at least one person with their

Work at Home Site #1: Write Articles and Get Paid

When I first started working online a few years back, I wrote articles and got paid for it. I was new to online freelancing and was receiving $1 an article then (ouch! I know, that’s pretty cheap).

Hannah’s Party Place Cebu Contact Number

I was looking for venues for my son’s 4th birthday and Hannah’s Party Place always came up in my searches. Of course, there were others including Talamban Leisure Center, Oakridge Pavilion, SM Conference Center, The Family Park, and the usual restaurants with function rooms. Since we already had a caterer, we were just looking for a venue. Many people recommended Hannah’s Party Place but I didn’t find any contact info

Busy as a Bee

One thing I like about freelancing is that I can be as busy as a bee at one time and then just go on a vacation to refresh my mind without having to worry about formal leaves, etc. Like right now, I’m very busy working on my client’s tasks but it makes me feel really good that I’m actually helping them reach their business goals.
