Make Your Dream of Becoming a Book Author Come True

Are you an aspiring author?   Have you always dreamed of writing your own book?  Do you believe that you have a story to share?  --------------------------- Books are my best friends. When I was a little girl, my favorite past time was reading. I remember spending a lot of time reading the book, Heidi by  Johanna Spyri . It was my first storybook given to me by mom and it was my favorite.  When I grew older, I enjoyed Harry Potter and Twilight . While reading, I feel like that I am totally in another world and it was a great way to escape the pressures of my teenage years.  When life got more serious and I have problems, I still read books especially when I feel so down and sad. I was able to get through my first heartbreak by reading a lot.  Some books that made a huge impact on me were, Purpose Driven Life , Rich Dad and Poor Dad , The Art of Emotions (which I got from St. Paul's and I don't remember the author)  and surprisingly, The Confe

How to Earn instead of Spend in Online Shopping?

Do you love online shopping? Are you fond of scrolling online marketplaces like Lazada or Shopee during your free time? Do you want to learn a secret on how you can earn money from your "favorite" hobby? Let me share with you why I love affiliate marketing. During my free time, I love to check online marketplaces. In fact, I have Lazada, Shopee, Zilingo, Zalora apps installed on my phone. Honestly, if you won't be mindful you'd be surprised that you have ordered a lot already. (Thanks to Cash on Delivery.) However, despite the temptation, you can't stop shopping online because of the great deals that you can find plus the convenience of having it shipped at home. Can you imagine getting a new pair of socks, clothes or accessories below Php 10 or sometimes free? Toiletries, cleaning products, milk, diapers at 50% off or more? 32 inch TV for Php 500? YES, it exists. :) Anyway, I am not encouraging you to shop more. Instead, I'd lik

Tips and Tricks on Being an ESL Teacher

by Robbie Jean Lorenzo, Guest Contributor One of my favorite philosophers once said, “Teaching is the highest form of understanding.” ---  I definitely agree. During one of my English for Freelancers online classes , when I asked my students for their expectations of the course and what they want to achieve, about 15 students said that they want to learn more about being ESL teachers. I could give a few tips and do a few vlogs. But the best way for me to share about it is to write a post – so here goes.     How I became an ESL Teacher For most of you who do not know my story, I started working at home fulltime in January of 2017. To cut the story short, I resigned from my toxic corporate job bought a laptop on loan, had internet installed in our house, and started looking for online jobs. It was a really big leap. But this happened to be the start of my journey towards taking charge and full control of my life. I saw a few ads about working as an online Engli
