In the freelancing world, success is possible for everyone. Even at the comforts of your home or in a cozy beach sipping your chilled Piña Colada.
Although, it's not as easy as it seems. You need to hone your skills and of course, hard work. And following thought leaders and influencers in our respective field might be your starting point to improvement.
After all, modeling successful people can go a long way. In fact, it’s the fastest way to success. Watch this video to get a grasp of it:
Karl Balingit is 1/2 of the dynamic duo in Amazing Nomads (with Mike Burns). They have traveled to 6 countries in 5 months while working on their careers. I mean. Just look how much fun they had “living the life” while working remotely. Who would not want that?
And it's not all fun without substance. Karl is a full stack digital marketer with expertise in Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing, Content Marketing, and more! (I even attended one of his talks! It was awesome!)
Justine is a true blue Ilongga who masterfully weaves her creative prowess for dashing designs for websites and graphics coupled with user experience in mind. (I mean what good is a design if the user is having a hard time using it, right?)
Back in college, she was also awarded as a regional winner for ten outstanding students in the Philippines. Yes! I can hear that big "Woah!"
Freelancing is not only for the Millenials. In fact, more and more parents choose to work from home to have more time for the people that matters the most.
Ernest is no different. He is your Ilonggo dad (Youtube Channel) showing you a snippet of their family's life in Iloilo. And to boot, he is an esteemed digital marketing strategist and brand manager for a big real estate brand!
There you have it! 5 influencers to follow close to your Ilonggo hearts. And even if you're not from Iloilo, it would still benefit you if you model their successful ways. Good luck with your freelancing career!
