I’ve been holding back from this for years because money is a tricky topic to navigate. But, I thought I’d share my journey here as I scale my Virtual Assistant Business this year. What better way to see if what I’m doing works is by documenting the steps I took and the results I got.
I was frustrated, disappointed, and angry today. I haven’t been that way since the Manila Water Crises started. But, today it was different. I woke up with all our stored water gone. It was an unspoken rule at home, but everyone understood that it’s a must to fill up our water drums with water when you use them up so whoever needs the supply next will have water to use. Not everyone understood that agreement, unfortunately.
Who here loves coffee? I’m a coffee lover, but I never really thought about making my own coffee. Funny, isn’t it? I usually just go to my favorite cafes and order my favorite brews from them. It was only recently that I decided to try learning how to brew my own cup so my husband and I can enjoy cafe-style coffee at home. Since one of our favorites is the syphon-brewed coffee of Lido, I signed up for Cooko Culinary and Barista Academy’s Syphon Coffee Workshop.
I remember my transition from having just one child to having two as a glorious phase. Really, I felt like I was a parenting expert! My first two are around 18 months apart and the transition was pretty easy. My eldest is quite independent so I didn’t have a problem with clinginess when her brother came along. She just did her own thing. My second was such an easy baby–no problems with breastfeeding, no problems with sleeping. He was a generally happy baby. But, becoming a mom of 3 was an entirely new ballgame. Our third definitely kept my ego in check. Parenting expert? Think again, lady.
Summer is here! It’s that time of the year when school’s out and you have the kids all to yourself. They might have their own plans during their vacation like playing with their toys, watching their favorite shows and read their summer material but these things can turn out to be boring after a while. Summer is the perfect opportunity to hone their skills, try something new and exciting and discover potential — all the while having fun!
