A Life Of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in Paris
Most of us Pinoys na nandito sa Paris came here to look “greener pasture.” This might be the same sa mga iba pang Pinoys na nasa abroad. Maaaring para mabigyan ng mas magandang kinabukasan ang mga anak. Maaring gustong makapag-ipon para makapag-start ng business o kaya pambili ng bahay, kotse at iba pa. In short, we are here to earn money to support the future lifestyle of our choice that we have in mind. Kaya kahit gaaano man kahirap ang situation, nagtitiis tayo. Masuwerte ang iba at kasama na nila ang kanilang family dito, pero ang karamihan ay iniwan ang mga anak o magulang para makapaghanap-buhay.
Most of us ay umaasa rin lang sa ating mga sinasahod from our full time job. In the case sa mga kasama na ang kanilang pamilya dito, ang kinikita ay nagkakasiya lang para sa pang-araw-araw. Sa mga nasa Pinas naman ang pamilya, halos lahat ng sahod ay ipinapadala sa pamilya at halos walang maiwan para sa kanila. Siguradong ganiyan din ang nangyayari sa karamihan ng iba nating kababayan na nasa iba’t ibang bansa.
I’ve been in that kind of financial situation, walang naiiwan. Kung minsan, hindi pa nakukuha ang sahod, nagastos na. Kaya I decided to start network marketing and then online business opportunities to earn extra income. I’d like to fulfill my dreams of having my own apartment, retire earlier and travel to some places without any worry about my financials. But unfortunately, I failed miserably. My knowledge was not enough to run my part time online marketing business.
After failing with my first try, I started to learn how to start internet marketing business by joining a training community. My advancement was so slow that I lost more money for my monthly membership fee than earning money. I finally gave up my membership with that community; but I continued my research, buying books after books and learned by my own. I consider those two to three years of learning as a good foundation that I can use to create a profitable passive online marketing business.
Indeed, we can change the course of our life if we only make a conscious decision to turn our life around. I did not seek a coach or mentor when I left the training community. Early this year, I again joined an internet marketing training community to fortify what I have learned during the past years.
If you are thinking about starting a passive part time online business by now to increase your income, I would suggest that you get a coach or a mentor to guide you. I can be your coach or you can find anybody who you think can help you to achieve your goal. I will guide you to the steps – right marketing education, social media presence and other things that you will need. And the good thing is that you will not be experiencing the many years of education that I’ve undergone before you can embark to an online marketing business.
Here’s to your success!
