Before my online journey, life has been pretty good growing up in a middle class migrant home in Sydney, Australia.
That being said I’ve had a few wake-up calls.
I had told mum in 2016, I wanted to quit my corporate job for one of the big insurance companies (great salary, cool office culture but it just wasn’t what I was passionate about).
At the same time I was teaching evening’s for extra cash, as teaching is what I’m super passionate about.
I shared these very thoughts to mum only two weeks before she passed away. I told her I really wanted to be a teacher full time so I could quit the corporate rat race and pursue my passion.
I was just 36 and she was only 68 when she passed away.
Strange but true, the night mum passed away I received an email (I’m not sure what compelled me to open and read it as I was absolutely inconsolable) but I did all the same and it was an offer for a full time teaching position at The Australian Institute of Fitness.
In that moment I looked up into the night sky and whispered ‘thanks mum, I love you’
I felt as though I was given a glimmer of hope in what was the most heart breaking day of my life.
Not only did this amazing soul raise me alongside my 5 other siblings, throughout life she was always the solid rock we could lean on.
And so with this new position teaching, I was given a lifeline to focus on a new direction whilst overcoming and grieving the loss of beautiful mum.
I finally fulfilled my promise to mum which was to return back home to the Philippines and give back to the local communities.
This life changing experience has given me a renewed purpose in life and it is my mission to continue supporting sustainable healthcare services in the Philippines.
Creating my online business is the gateway in providing the time freedom for me to continue supporting this amazing community.
I knew I had to find a way to transfer my traditional work skills in teaching by leveraging the internet and starting my own online business.
To be my own boss, to earn a passive income unlike traditional jobs that create so much stress, take so much of our precious time away from what matters most to us.
- Giving back to our communities and truly being in the service of others
- Spending valuable time with family and friends
So for me having the ability to invest my time into other people’s lives all thanks to an online business model that enables it, brings so much value and meaning back into my life.
Everyday I wake up with gratitude and feel humbled to be on this journey.
