Chapter 1

A lot of people ask me how to start working from home or how to be a virtual assistant. I usually don’t give them an answer.

Instead, I ask them this question: “Why do you ask?” The most common reason they give me is that they wanted to have an additional source of income.

Let me warn you, though. If your reason is the same as them, you won’t probably be able to reach the end of this book. Just looking for extra money won’t cut it, because if you found another way to earn that additional amount, you’ll forget about this book instantly.

Know that this was NOT written just for you to read. You’ll need to think, ask, and take action. This book will take you out of your comfort zone.

If your “WHY” is not that deep, you’ll give up easily. If your why won’t push you to move, you will not reach the end. If your why won’t make you excited to get up every morning, then I’m afraid this book is of no use to you.

Yes, it’s not the “how” but the “why”. The “how” can be learned from others but only YOU will be able to come up with the reason why you want to do it.

Now, let me ask you again. Aside from having an extra source of income, why are you interested in working from home?

If you’re having a hard time answering, let me share mine with you. They’re really simple, but it’s not just the statement but the story behind it.

1. I want time freedom.

I remember one time when I was still employed. An unexpected opportunity came knocking at my door. I was given an all-expense-paid trip to another country with my daughter.

I know the possibility was low but I still asked the company I worked for if I can have 25-day vacation, and I am sure you know what happened next. One of my coworkers even thought I was looking for another job. Unbelievable!

You probably know now why my first reason is to have time freedom. It’s because I want to travel when I needed or when I wanted to. Attending an event won’t be a problem too.

I can go on vacation and bond with my family anytime, and I can serve my church and community whenever I need to. I want to do whatever I want, whenever I want without securing an approval from a boss or supervisor. I want to own my time.

2. I can’t tolerate office politics.

Office politics is something I am NOT really fond of. I can’t even remember how many times I fell victim to one. It’s so hard to move. I need to be extra careful of what I say or do because I do not know who are being real or not among the people around me.

3. The daily commute tires and stresses me to the core.

This might really be too simple a reason for some but not for me. When I was employed, traveling to and from the office took four hours. It was tiring but there was a time when I just got used to it.

Until that one point in my life.

Remember my story about tropical storm Ketsana (Ondoy)? That time, I really pitied myself for looking like a piece of meat for sale on a truck. But what can I do?

There was no other way to cross the waist-high flood. I was thankful to the truck driver but deep inside I knew that I’ve had enough.

These are my top three whys. I hope sharing these with you would help you in determining “why” you want to work from home.

Now that you’ve identified your “why”, let me guide you in creating something that will remind you why you chose to work from home.

I know it was God’s plan when I bumped into Connie’s book. I’ve gone through answering my seven deepest whys and true enough, I started crying in the end when I figured it out. With so much authenticity and without being pressured to provide good comments about her book has saved me, not just professionally but also spiritually. It is a gem. May God continue to bless you, Connie.
