Filipino Virtual Assistant Free Training

Filipinos are very much in demand when it comes to getting hired as virtual assistants, because of our ability to speak and communicate in English fairly well, the skills we have and relative ease of learning new skills. In 2010, Filipino VAs get paid about $250 a month. But now, the rates are much higher and depends on what skills you have. This post tells us how much salary Filipino VAs get. The range is from $500 to $800 for General VAs and content writers.

If you want to learn from home how to become a sought after Virtual Assistant, I highly recommend learning from Jomar Hilario. He has helped many Filipinos -- OFWs, stay at home moms and dads, and people with careers but doesn't want to get tied to an 8 to 5 job, get hired as a VA or better yet be an internet marketer earning online.

Jomar Hilario is one of the internet gurus who has been training Pinoys to work at home as VAs. He has published a book called Virtual Careers. He also has seminars and training courses you can avail depending on what you want to be including internet marketer, entrepreneur, etc. If you want to get more info, check out this page.

Regarding free training, Jomar Hilario conducts webinars every week. Topics discussed are varied and one series he did was on Virtual Assistant interviews. There he interviewed different people to get to know how they started working from home, how they adjusted, what are their fears, how did they overcome them. Also, he asked about how they landed their “jobs,” what they do everyday, what they liked about working from home and what they don’t like about it. If you join his webinars, you can also ask any questions you wish to know about VA jobs. Register for this free webinars by registering and joining the Jomar Hilario Mastery group.

To give you an idea regarding the webinars Jomar Hilario is conducting. I’ve embedded two of his webinars below. You'll find these very informative and he does give really helpful tips (something that I wish I knew before) about working at home, VA jobs you can actually do at home and being an internet marketer. You have to know Filipino though to understand the video. I hope you find these videos enlightening.

Excellent share, Chin. I hope many aspiring virtual assistants will attend the seminar before taking the plunge. It is always best to come prepared.

this is interesting…i’ll visit this links. i just remembered when i applied, may mga nakasabay akong VA ang position na inaaplayan nila
dito sa ‘pinas, working as a call center agent ang pinakamabilis na mapapasukan lalo’t fresh graduates, this is a tough job kaya lang sige na lang…kaysa nakatambay sa bahay

Hi, Teecup. I also wish to attend seminars and see how far I could really go and earn with this virtual assistant career. But, I didn’t have the chance to do so during our last vacation in the Philippines.

Reese, it is better use of time instead of just doing nothing at home. I’m trying my luck first with virtual assistant jobs.

You can attend the webinar by Jomar Hilario because they are held live online. You just need to join the FB group so you will be informed of the topcis and schedule, usually Monday nights.

I am thinking of resigning if we can’t still a good replacement for our current yaya. She already told us her intention to resign because she wants to take care of her old mother, that I understand. I am thinking of having a work at home instead. I have read and heard about VA so many times but I am afraid to try. And this one is very helpful.
Chin chin said…
Mommy Maye, you can try to get some part time VA jobs without resigning yet just to see how it is like and if it is going to work for you.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice. Image taken from When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
