A Busy First Quarter

The first quarter of the year has passed by rather quickly for me. It has been a very busy first quarter and it’s one of the main reasons why I haven’t been able to update this blog as often as I would like to. As what I may have mentioned in some of my previous posts, I have spent the last quarter of last year and the first couple of weeks of this year looking for a full time online job. I have decided to focus more on my online freelance career because I’ve always felt that it is a career where I can really thrive.

After spending the last couple of weeks sending out applications and undergoing a few interviews in the process, I was finally able to land a full time online job. I was really ecstatic about it because the I get to work on a project which I believe is something that I am good at and something that I will also learn a lot from in the process.

Anyway, one of the many reasons why I really wanted to pursue working online is that I get to have a full time job and earn while I’m at home. I still get to spend a lot of time with my family and I am still able to attend to their needs. Now that I am also earning a decent amount of money from my online job, I can contribute to our household’s income and even buy a few items for our kids including the new guitar that our youngest saw at the best online music store that his friends told him about. Hopefully, we get to buy the guitar that he wants just in time for his birthday.

I will, of course, still try to update this blog often and maybe give you guys an update on the progress of my new career. ‘Till next post.

The wide variety of products and services that are offered by online retailers online is also one of the main reasons why shoppers choose to buy online. From common consumer goods, to electronic gadgets, to books, to musical instruments such acoustic guitars and evh wolfgang electronic guitars, to toys, to clothes and just about any other gift items and collectibles that you can think of, you can find them at the websites of various online retailers.

So if you want gift shopping to be less stressful during the holiday season and you want to buy the best gifts this year, then you should give online shopping a try. Who knows, you might even find items that you would like to buy for yourself, too.

Exploring an Additional Income Opportunity

As parents, one of our main priorities is providing the needs of our family especially the needs of our children. It is always wise to look for more ways to earn and not just rely on a single source of income. With the economy being unstable and the prices of basic commodities constantly increasing, we really have to make sure that we have, if possible, multiple sources of income.

Having multiple sources of income is something that we’ve been thinking and praying about these past few months and we have been looking for opportunities on how to do just that. We want to be able to have the funds we need for our everyday needs and expenses and also have something set aside for emergency purposes and for our children’s future. It would even be more wonderful if we could afford to give gifts to our loved one during special occasions (even if they’re one of those used taylor guitars that my nephew wants).We have decided that we should turn my husband’s hobby into an income generating source. My husband is into making arts/crafts projects such as making miniature houses (nipa huts, tree houses, etc.), candle holders and other unique gift items. And since a couple of people have actually bought them, we decided that we should focus more on that and start making more so that we can sell more (and of course, earn more).

We started with making a Facebook page so that we can feature all of his arts/crafts projects. I then started promoting the page so that we can reach a wider audience. After a few weeks, we landed our first major project; a company asked us to make a couple of of miniature nipa huts which they will be giving away as Christmas gifts to their clients. It was indeed a great blessing, something that we’ve been praying for. We have been working hard on it these past couple of days so that we can finish their order ahead of schedule. We really hope that this will be the start of something big for our new business and that we will be able to have more clients in the future.
