Feedback from Gigi, who attended the 2011 May VA seminar - and is now working as a VA!

hi kuya joms,

kamusta na ako since we last saw each other sa va seminar? actually excited ako to do the assignments kaya nga i followed it up sa iyo.  when i first got the invitation to attend the seminar thru fb, nag, research na ako what a va is, where i can possibly earn money, etc. when i read about odesk in one of the comments written in your blog, nag search na ako tungkol dito, nag join and started looking for a job. at first since i wasn' t odesk ready yet, i was limited to 2 job applications lang/wk.  then came the seminar.... since excited nga ako kasi parang bago yung mga tools na na-mention sa seminar, i started doing the homework (HW).  While doing the hw, i still applied sa odesk.... sabi mo nga if its just data entry that i want... no brains... might as well di na kayo nag attend ng va seminar!!!! 

BUT YOU'RE WRONG! ha!ha!ha! 

Alam mo ba, I was able to use the "print screen shots" and "jing".  in my first gig, yung nga lang the contract price was just $2.5/hr.  WOW! fascinated ako kasi Odesk was really working!!! the boss tested my work for 2 hours then incresed it to 10 hrs/wk and then 12hrs/wk... pero syempre di ko naubos yung huling 12 hours  because I was able to finish the task na.  Now, I'm back to doing the assignment.  Hopefully, I will be able to finish it soon  : ) maraming salamat kuya joms!

nga pala kuya joms,
since I was going to send the employer several screenshots, I asked him if he had a dropbox and if he wanted me to share a dropbox with him, he has and agreed to do so.  So ayun, nagamit ko kaagad ang dropbox.  Also, was able to use the google docs kasi yung instructions nya dun nya pinost.  So yung mga tools na sinabi mo, nagamit ko w/c was actually part of my assignment.

Q: I'm doing fine but sad to say I haven't made any progress yet in my goal of becoming a Virtual assistant. Nakakainis. I can't keep the momentum of updating my blog daily. My low confidence level for my writing skills ang dahilan kung bakit hangang ngayon I'm not making any progress. Nakakatawa nga, I''ve been encouraging people to start their blog and ask them to update daily if they wish to work from home. 

I know I am the only person who can help myself and live the life I want but for now I still find it impossible. I think I need to attend more of your seminar. 

I need your I need opinion. Do you think I have the potentials of becoming a good writer? Basing on how I compose my email. Bakit naman kasi yung seminar ng father mo hangang Manila lang. I hope he can conduct a writing seminar here in Cebu too. 

Anyhow, thank you for taking the time on checking your graduates. I'll be attending your upcoming seminar here. 

A:  Mary, my father will be doing a Cebu one, after he's perfected the Manila one first. A few more manila and then we'll do Cebu. :)

You're okay as to writing. The best way to blog is to create interesting lists like this:

It doesn't require a lot of english, talaga. Even if you remove the words, the list still looks interesting, db?

OFWs! You're missing this if you're not with your family everyday.


Here's one business lesson that I've ignored in the past, but never again. Let you be guided by Jack Canfield himself who wrote the entire thing below:

Be aware that nothing ever just “happens” to you. Just like the “yellow alerts” in the old  Star Trek television series, you almost always receive advance warnings—in the form of telltale signs, comments from others, gut instinct, or intuition—that alert you to the impending danger and give you time to prevent the unwanted outcome.

You are getting yellow alerts all the time.

There are external yellow alerts:
He keeps coming home later and later with alcohol on his breath.
The client’s first check bounced.
He screamed at his secretary.
His mother warned you.
Your friends told you.

And there are internal yellow alerts:
That feeling in your stomach
That inkling you had
That fleeting thought that just maybe . . .
That intuition
That fear that emerged
That dream that woke you up in the middle of the night
We have a whole language that informs us:
Clues, inklings, suspicions
The handwriting on the wall
I had a feeling that . . .
I could see it coming for a mile.
My gut feeling told me.

. However, too many people ignore the yellow alerts because paying attention to them would require them to do something that is uncomfortable. It is uncomfortable to confront your spouse about the cigarettes in the ashtray that have lipstick on them. It is uncomfortable to speak up in a staff meeting when you are the only one who feels that the proposed plan won’t
work. It is uncomfortable to tell someone you don’t trust them.

So you pretend not to see and not to know because it is easier, more convenient and less uncomfortable, avoids confrontation, keeps the peace, and protects you from having to take risks.

Successful people, on the other hand, face facts squarely. They do the uncomfortable and take steps to create their desired outcomes. Successful people don’t wait for disasters to occur and then blame something or someone else
for their problems.

Once you begin to respond quickly and decisively to signals and events as they occur, life becomes much easier. You start seeing improved outcomes both internally and externally. Old internal self-talk such as “I feel like a victim; I feel used; nothing ever seems to work out for me” is replaced with “I feel great; I am in control; I can make things happen.”

External outcomes such as “Nobody ever comes to our store; we missed our quarterly goals; people are complaining that our new product doesn’t work” are transformed into “We have more money in the bank; I lead the division in sales; our product is flying off the shelves.”

Read carefully. Scams like these should NOT catch people like you and people you like. :)

Posted via email from jomarhilario's posterous

Here's a sample SCAM from an Internet Source - this is common

By now you've seen, witnessed and read that people you know and respect have declared that Trace Trajano and them (Bo, Larry, the Apprentices) are now moving in different directions - business wise.  There should be no assumption of a continued business relationship between Trace Trajano and the parties who just emailed/blogged about him in the past.
The bottomline is people really must do their "due diligence" when getting into investments - even from people they trust. 
What is "due"?
What is "diiligence"

due diligence  noun
Definition of DUE DILIGENCE

1 : the care that a reasonable person exercises to avoid harm to other persons or their property
2 : research and analysis of a company or organization done in preparation for a business transaction (as a corporate merger or purchase of securities)

First Known Use of DUE DILIGENCE: 1877

My Personal Story

I once did an investment just this year with a Real Estate Person (yes a broker), I knew this person personally, I know where she lives, I know her past properties and who's been mentoring her for years. I also know what she eats for breakfast, lunch and dinner and where she goes to "think" and "read".  I know her cellphone number too.  I know her husband, too.  

So you can say "safe" investment right?


But for this one property, I had my Virtual Assistant call up the bank to know the state of the property, is it really existing? Is it really for sale? Can I get the name of the person you sold it to? Naturally, they didn't give me the name of the person who bought it. So I hit a "stop" in my due diligence.

Did I stop?


I had the broker draw up a paper contract for the investment. I had my own separate lawyer look at the contract. "Oh my Jomar, I could never afford a lawyer, that's for sosyal people!" Yes, you can afford to lose your P 700,000 or 7Million because you can't afford a P 5000 lawyer? As the definition says, due diligence is a "reasonable person who exercises to avoid harm to other persons or their property."  So yes, get a lawyer and while you're at it, get a CPA to check the financial projections. What? No financial projections? Then why are you talking to this person at all? 

So that's my story. That investment has since paid off and my money has returned plus I slept better in the in between times - which as you know in priceless.

Now that "due diligence" was not that diligent at all, but it was a start with getting a lawyer and CPA to check the deal out.

Lesson: Friends or not, when it comes to investment do your due due due due due and overdue diligence.

P.S. Yes, I used to promote Trace Trajano's events primariliy because I'm also one of the speakers --but even before that --I'm completely unconnected to his real estate, forex, mentoring, apprentice challenge, passive income and other businesses. 

Now, I am no longer connected to Trace Trajano in any way. 

Note the use of wonderful keywords here, my SEO and VA students.

P.S. One final lesson, from an internet marketer: Google the name of the person and nicknames, google the address of the property (if it's a real estate company)-it might still be for sale or sold somewhere, Use Whois.com on the URL of the company's website (if it exists) - to find out who owns this website really.  

P.S. Super important, I'm no due diligence expert but really, GOOGLE "due diligence in the philippines" and out will come the information you need.

How to do your Due Diligence

Creative Writing in In You -- Photo Credit

Who else wants to unlock your creativity in writing, blogging and expressing yourself so it can lead you bigger profits, earnings and inspiration?

So you're going to be a good Work at Home Virtual Assistant or very profitable Internet Marketer. That's great!

But do you know that written communication skills is very important for both? You'll be writing a lot to people, clients, prospects and partners. You need to be clear, concise and creative at it. Plus there's this big need to express yourself in blogs, your facebook wall and other social media. How are you going to overcome your fears and shyness about writing?

Simple: attend a creative writing workshop where you're actually going to write something ---in the workshop - instead of just getting the "correct concepts".

Or perhaps you're trying to start a blog because you know blogging is one of the "ways to earn online". Yes, it's correct. Having a blog nowadays is not a "fad" or "trend" - it's a must. But here's the problem - you don't know how to blog or write. "You're not a writer", or "You're not a good writer" you say. So what do you do? How can you fill up that blog with articles that are interesting to both the reader and the you- the writer? After all, you can't simply cut and paste stuff from all over the web and claim it to be yours. That's plagiarism - and worse -google will and do punish people's blogs by not making them popular - if all they do is copy and paste.

How can you address this need?

Great news!

You can now attend a creative writer's workshop that's conducted by a speaker who's both a blogger and an awarded writer.

Even better, specially for those who think they're "too old", this speaker is moving past 70 years old and blogging like he's "just begun" (more than 10 blogs actively being written on, and that's being modest).

Here are 10 benefits to expect after the Creattitudes Workshop on "Creative Writing for Bloggers & Non-Bloggers" on 29 October 2011 9am - 5pm at Taguig City conducted by Frank A Hilario, Creative Writing Guru:

(1) You will see how you can become always interesting to read. This is built into the very process of the Workshop itself. The search notes distributed during the Workshop, the notes being the basis of an article, have been so designed that you will automatically write interestingly. You've got to attend the Waorkshop to believe it!

(2) You will become more and more creative in writing articles. If you follow the steps, you will not have Writer's Block again. What does that mean? In Creative Writing as taught by Frank A Hilario, Easy Writer, all starts are good. You will always be able to finish what you have begun because there will always be a free flow of creative thoughts.

(3) You will become more appreciative of what you need to do in order to write more and better. While you will learn to appreciate that Creative Writing genius is 90% inspiration and 10% perspiration, remember that there is still the 10% perspiration. You still have to follow the 8 steps to travel the path of Creative Writing.

(4) You will become more confident writing on any subject whatsoever. Remember, this is Creative Writing, not Technical Writing. You will be able to apply what you have learned that there are at least two ways to take so that you can write about something you don't know anything about.

(5) You will be mentored free for 6 months wherever you are - via email. You will not be left out in the cold after the Workshop; having graduated as a teacher and learned his communication arts by practicing in the field, Frank A Hilario knows that follow-ups are crucial in the tutorial enterprise.

(6) You will not be bothered by lack of vocabulary or poor grammar again. Being practical-minded, I will show you how to maximize the use of software that you already have: Microsoft Word and Internet browsers.

(7) You will recreate yourself with an attractive writing style. Your dull style will go out the window and, with due diligence, your new style will evolve and will surprise even you.

(8) You will learn to be more tolerant of others. Whether you are a blogger or not, after the Workshop, you will learn to appreciate more and more the opinions of others and consider them in your writing, which will make it even more creative and more acceptable to others.

(9) You will be enjoying your writing more and more. Once you begin to appreciate that Creative Writing is a process and not a product, there will come a time when you will be enjoying the very process of creating your article or essay every step of the way. It is a wonderful feeling.

(10) You will break the language barrier. Surprise! After attending this Creattitudes Workshop, you will be able to apply all of what you have learned to be able to write creatively in any language other than English. The Creattitudes secrets of Creative Writing are not based on language but are based on the genius of the writer drawn out by the genius of the Creattitudes Workshop.

Who can teach this to you? How about someone who :

1. Has created more than 100 blogs and is maintaining 10 of those blogs.

2. Has the experience of teaching others how to write, even before the age of the internet?

3. Has created a blog for Charise Pempengco that got the attention of all her fans worldwide - that this same blog is now material for a book about the pop star.

4. Has edited lots of books in the past 50 years.

5. Is actually 71 years old but comfortable with both typewriter and computer?

6. Has booked four figure ($) online writing jobs abroad for years just because they "like his writing". What's a four figure? Example: $1997, $4997, $9997. That's a four figure.

7. Will allow you to actually write instead of just giving you "tips"?

8. Will check your work personally in the workshop itself?

9. Will guide you into believing that there's really a great writer in that person in the mirror every morning!

10. ...is actually Jomar Hilario's Father -- Frank A Hilario.

In Summary, here are 4 Reasons why you should grab seat at the Second Creattitudes: Creative Writing for Bloggers & Newbies Workshop :
  1. What you'll learn is a distillation of more than 50 years in the business (and pleasure) of writing.
  2. You will learn how to write about many and diverse topics, and how to make the most boring subject come alive.
  3. The Creattitudes Writers' Workshop is hands-on almost 100% activity. The exercises are 10% theoretical and 90% applied.
  4. You will be encouraged to write and there will be a no criticism from anybody in the group or the workshop leader.
You will need a laptop computer with power cords + extension cords. Tablets are okay as long as you write quickly on them. Internet is optional and yes, we're assuming that you do know how to type on that computing device. :)
