Stuck In Doing Your Portfolio Blog? You Should Not Because…

A PORTFOLIO BLOG IS A PROOF  THAT YOU KNOW ‘HOW’ EVEN IF YOU’RE A NEWBIE

When I learned about the assignment after getting the downloadable Date With Freedom Seminar last year, I felt nervous.

Nervous, because I don’t know how to blog.

preview-01

I was afraid that my friends might find out about it and criticize it.

I felt relieved when the purpose of the assignment sank into my mind.

First: The assignment is a portfolio blog –  it would be about 10 tutorials about apps or tools used in online businesses.

Second: I don’t have to show it to my friends because that’s not for them. The portfolio blog is for my prospect clients so that they would know that I really understand how to use the tools. It’s a proof lalo na kung newbie ka lang sa virtual world.

I felt relieved even more, when I learned that Jomar’s Team will check my assignment.

Fast forward, at last, I finished the 10 tutorials and submitted it to Jomar.

Jomar’s team checked my work after.

This feedback on my blog really helped me to improve and be confident in my work.

JOMAR’S TEAM RESPONSE TO MY PORTFOLIO BLOG:

Question: How To Start…Again?

08

 

Q: I just want to know if I still have the chance to continue my VA journey even if I am almost left behind by my co-attendees.I am an aspiring Virtual Assistant/Professional with “naudlot” na assignments. I still want to pursue but don’t know where to start, again……

I am an aspiring Virtual Assistant/Professional with “naudlot” na assignments. I still want to pursue but don’t know where to start, again……

 

A: Haba ah. Gusto mo talaga magkwento. Anyway, I don’t really know how to answer this.

Kasi as long as buhay ako I will serve you. So do you have a chance? Buhay ka ba? Gusto mo ba? Eh di pwede ka.

The only time you can’t is when your hands are too old and shaking you can’t hold a mouse and keyboard.

When you “Start again.” is there any difference when you “start?”

To start kasi is to make a list of 100 reasons . I bet you don’t have 100 reasons yet. There fore, DO THAT. Start or start again, it’s all the same to me.  What ever you do if it’s WORTHWHILE enough, you need strong strong reasons — most of which is about strong strong love. If not, the simple arrival of a storm at sea, the betrayal of a dear friend and team-mate, the violence of your companions, the trial at a mock court, the nails on your hands and feet  – any point in your journey, you can give up. UNLESS you have strong love.
