In 11 years of working from home, and resigning from the corporate world 9 years ago, there was never a moment of regret but always a moment of a blessing to experience a better life free from traffic and witness the milestone of my children. If you are an aspiring work at home mom who wants to learn how to start working from home or a freelancer who wants to level up your freelancing career, allow me to share my journey of working from home.
Ten years ago working from home in the Philippines was simply a “fad” taken as part-time online jobs at home while still working full time. It’s a “fad” that you can earn money online and earn dollars working from home.
But today working from home is no longer a fad, it’s a work from home career that requires us to continuously learn and improve ourselves to stand out from the rest and outbeat the global competition. Continuous learning is a must for me to help me build up myself, my confidence and my work from home business. One of the things that I am continuously learning is about different digital business strategies.
Top 3 Digital Business Strategies I explored to Level Up
1. Finding Your Niche
When you start exploring the work from home career, there will be a lot of ideas and opportunities you will encounter. I explored different ways to earn money online, you can check it out HERE. I jumped from one idea to another idea, spending money and time to test what I really wanted. Here are a different online business niche I tried on but it did not flourish.
- Home and Gardening Ideas – I want to blog and sell something about home and gardening
- Reminology – I want to start a genealogy business
- AITrain – I want to be a service provider AI Outsourcing Agency
- Savin Time – I want to start an errand business
- Freeneers – I want to start an Engineering Outsourcing Agency
- Travest Philippines – I want to start a travel business
- Disdeal – I want to have d
- Health Shoppe PH – I want to have an online health store
- The K Drama Fanatic – I want to blog and sell something about Korean Drama and Korean Products
- My Chilou – I want to sell dog products
- Jaxynne Sweet Corner – I want to sell chocolates
- Fashionate Kid – I want to help my daughter sell clothes and fashion accessories
At the moment, I find my niche in work from home training and as an affiliate marketing service provider. Identifying your niche can be a bit difficult but if there is something why I choose this path is because it is something that I really love to do.
- Building an Online Community
I created this community on February 29, 2012, and named Beyond Freelancing to Courageous WAHMs. It’s a community with its mission of supporting and uplifting moms in our home-based career journey. The community started with a few moms who participated in my first training program batch and eventually grow to 586 members.
Creating an online community is easy but maintaining is really a big challenge. Making it successful comes from our passion and commitment to serving the community. For the last 7 years, this community has not taken off yet and still work in progress. As of the moment, I’m on the process of recommitting by giving free training through my 8 Days Challenge to Start Earning Extra Income From Home While Still Working full time, which you can access HERE. The community website, Courageous WAHMS will soon be a launch to support women in small businesses and help make the Philippines a country where womenpreneur thrive.
- Building Partnership
In 2013, I started to venture into an idea that I want to explore public speaking to teach about having a work from home career but I really don’t know how to do it. It was only in February 2016, this was realized because I reached out to Manila Workshops and that is where I started my public speaking journey. Here are some of my workshop partnership with Manila Workshops: Home-based Career 101 and SEO 101 for Freelancers. Building a partnership helped me build more credibility and has taken me more opportunities with my freelancing services and as a freelance trainer.
One of the partnerships that helped me level up more and improved myself is partnering with Ms. Janette Toral. I started my relationship with her when I signed up for the Maxwell Membership Club where my goal is to learn how I can improve my public speaking skills.

I never thought that because of that it paved my way for another opportunity to be part of DigitalJobsPH as Resource Trainer. It’s a program of the government initiated by DICT that helps Filipinos in the countryside do online freelancing as a livelihood by providing technical training
More than the opportunities, building partnerships is all about building trust and helping each other to grow more.
And that sums it up with exploring digital business strategies to start and level up myself as a work from home professional. There are still different digital business strategies, I am exploring through the online learning video course of Ms. Janette Toral entitled Digital Business Strategies. I am excited to apply what I’ve learned from these online learning videos as I prepare for my 2020 Strategic Business Plan.
