Many financially-motivated people share a similar dream. They look forward to and even live for the day they don’t have to rely on their job quite as much for their income. While it might seem like a pipe dream, the truth is that it’s achievable. …

December 21st marked the start of a new stage in my being a Virtual Assistant. I attended a seminar conducted by none other than Mr. Jomar Hilario at Rosewood Pointe in Taguig, Philippines.
But before I give you the details of the seminar, I’d like you to read below a little about Mr. Jomar Hilario.
Who is Jomar Hilario?
He teaches internet marketing based on personal experience at http://www.jomarhilario.com
Filipino internet marketer, workshop speaker who’s known to be the Tim Ferriss (of 4 hour workweek fame) of the Philippines for his early work with internet marketing technologies and virtual assistants to increase both his free time and productivity.
His first attempt at online marketing, enabled him to invite 5000 people to attend a concert in Araneta in 30 days. His second “try” got him 10,000 people generating 2Million pesos in 30 days.
He is also powerful advocate of helping others gain semi-passive income from the Internet online or offline and for businesses to effectively get clients online.
He is also one of the very few Filipino Internet Marketers who has his own online membership site -where he teaches online marketing to people abroad.

Ok on to a few details about the seminar ..
It was an eye opener for all of us, even for me who has been doing VA projects for about 4 months now. Actually, I was the only VA present in that particular seminar. All of the other attendees haven’t tried (I think) being a full blast VA but already heard about it.
The lessons were all about being a Virtual Assistant. Definitions, tools, positive and negative aspects of being one and many more. You have to attend the seminar on January 29th to know more because I can’t reveal it all here. You can check out the next seminar at – http://www.bit.ly/manilava.
It was a successful seminar. Lots of questions were asked and answered. Lessons were highly informative and freebie tips were shared. The whole room were alive and buzzing, all eyes and ears were at Mr. Hilario and on those who are sharing their knowledge.
I am so happy to find a mentor in Mr. Jomar Hilario. He is very accommodating and you can relax during the seminar because he ain’t that strict. But you have to listen to learn the trade and speak when you have something to say.
We were each given our assignments to be submitted 2 months after the seminar/training. We need to get high grades, just like in school, so the future employers will hire us. I can’t divulge it here, but those assignments will bring me to a higher level in the Virtual Assistant world! So, I’m excited and scared.. but I know I can do it!
If you want to earn online, this is the proper way to do it.. Be armed and get ready, coz after the seminar, you’ll enter another world where competition is tough but hard work and diligence pays.. and in $$$$.. 🙂

December proved to be the most successful month for me when it comes to my online earnings. I can’t believe it myself because it’s simply overwhelming! Projects were sent in bulk that I had a hard time catching my breathe sometimes plus fingers got stiff …
I received my 2nd payment from my full time VA job last December 14th. My very first “salary” from the same client was only $300 last November. She increased it by $25 and hopefully there will be another increase in January.. Here’s my payment proof: …
Got paid again from a sideline Virtual Assistant project for $49.56. This is for 2 Press Releases and 1 Article Submissions.
At the time this project was given to me, I actually have no idea about submissions. The Press Release task I always do for this client, so it was easy. The Article Submissions, I have to research on how to go about it.
When you’re in the Virtual Assistant world, you can’t accept a project that you hardly know or don’t even have the faintest idea on how to start or finish the task. Maybe since it’s an old client, they gave it to me still. Besides, I’ve worked and prepared the initial SEO for their sites, like backlinks etc, so I know the drill. The good thing about my employer, they feed me the details or information and I just have to figure out what to do with it and how to do it. There are times that they give out instructions on where to put the info but the rest, you have to analyze.
Mind you, a few months ago, I don’t have any idea on what Virtual Assistants do. I researched and tried my luck. Posted my resumes in different Virtual Assistant job boards and applied here and there.
I know last month, I promised some blogger friends that I’d be posting an article about Virtual Assistants and what they do. I honestly haven’t finished it yet. It isn’t like a regular post, where I can say anything. I need to research the facts and figures. It’s easy if I’d only tell you about how I became one and what I do. But if you know me thru my serious posts here, I’m kinda a perfectionist. Besides it’s not just a daily post. I need to give you details, so I have to be careful on what I’m going to write. I assure you, the wait is worth it.
For the meantime, here’s my payment proof:
I’ve been saving so I could buy something. I’ve been seeing the Max Furniture online and I definitely want to have one. Great present for the house..
Update: I’ve already published this post and I didn’t see the net price of $47.57. That’s what I got after the transaction fee.
