“A community is a group of people who share an interest in your passion and who come together to discuss, debate and share views on the subject matter.” – Gary Vee., Crush it!
We did it! We had three simultaneous meetups for the Freelancing.ph community last Saturday, Feb 25th. There’s one more event this Saturday, March 4, happening at 47 East Co-Working Space in QC. I promise you it will be worth your time. I’m not saying it because I’m organizing but because I was there and I left the place with valuable insights and strengthened relationships.
Freelancer Spotlight is back! A big thanks to our partner, Payoneer, for hosting #MyPayoneerStory competition last month. We received a lot of interesting and inspiring freelancer stories and it was really hard to pick the winners. Rebecca Jacobs, Payoneer’s* Community Manager, personally helped in the process and we announced it live. Now, be inspired with one of our winner’s encouraging story. Meet Gel Niñofranco, a work at home mom.
If you are a freelancer who has been chasing after clients and worrying where to find your next gig even before your current project is completed, then you might be doing the wrong thing. And guess what — before you know it, you’ll risk burning yourself out.
We’re privileged that an industry friend covered the Ask Me Anything session during the Freelancer Forum PH last October 22, 2016. The podcast features the most pressing issues our freelancers are struggling with. Thanks to our world-class speaker line up who shared their wisdom and experiences in tackling these challenges.
If you missed the event, here’s your chance to listen to the Q&A. Check out the podcast and transcription below. Thanks again Marv De Leon and Freelance Blend!
At Freelancing.ph, we pride ourselves that in all that we do, we base it on the freelancers’ voice. We pioneered in publishing Freelancer Salary Reports for 2015 and 2016. Now to start 2017 right, we surveyed 120 Filipino freelancers to help us craft the first Freelancer Annual Report for the Philippines.
As a freelancing advocate, I take interview opportunities seriously. I feel it’s my own little way of reaching out to someone who might be losing hope or struggling to make ends meet. If I can inspire just one reader, then I’ve done my job.
Sharing my latest interview in collaboration with Payoneer*. I talked about how I got started, what my normal work day is like, and some advice to fellow freelancers. Forward to a friend who might need a little career push.
Welcome 2017! It’s a brand new year. In our mission to be the main go-to resource for Filipino Freelancers, we will be publishing an annual report. This will help us understand how we are positioned in the freelancing industry and serve as a benchmark for the coming years.
Tax, a dreaded word, especially among freelancers. Last Nov 25, in a #CoffeeBreakSession, we decided to conquer our fears and face it head on. We invited Mark Ong, Chief Financial Officer of Taxumo, to answer the common tax-related questions we get from the freelancing community. And as requested, we are turning this Ask Me Anything session as a resource page for you. Bookmark this, save this, share this.
