When I left the corporate world, I didn't quite know what to expect. I have been working in the BPO industry for almost a decade that I almost lost touch of how it is outside. Still I left, not just because of family reasons and health reasons, but mostly because for years I have been considering the idea of working from home ... except I didn't quite know where to start.
Attending Dainty Mom's WAHMderful life seminar was what I immediately though of doing. I know a few people who works at home and meeting a couple more wouldn't hurt. There I got to know a bit more about the ins and outs of working from home and after the seminar, I felt more empowered that I can do it. (Thanks for the opportunity, Martine).
Taking the leap with my husband was not easy but I'm glad that I had people helping me out along the way. I left my job at the BPO industry. Our family moved back to the province. We pretty much started from scratch but the good thing is, it forced me to explore the opportunities that I have as a WAHM. Odesk was the first option I had but the response from the employers takes time. I am sending in my application almost every night only to receive no response the next day. Then I met a fellow WAHM in Bacolod - Yols Hortillosa. She works as a transcriber and she passed on a few transcription assignments to me and my husband. That went on for a few more times until she shared with us that one of the transcription companies is looking for more transcribers. I guess you can now say that the rest is history.
So far, we managed to stay afloat for a couple of months and I look forward to the time when we can say that we are finally financially stable. If you are a mom who'd want to start working from home, stay tuned because my posts will now be more likely about my experiences on being a work-at-home mother.
