Freelancing is the hardest job ever in Online Services. But if you have the will and passion to conquer. It would be just a walk in the park.

What is your current gig/work/startup?

My startup is a Job Portal name Trabahante.com Online Services. We provide jobs for fresh graduate students in our City of Gentle People, Dumaguete City in the Philippines. We are partnering with all schools in our province to provide their students with the best job after their graduation. We are the sole start-up in our place since 2014.

How did you get started working freelance?

Right after graduating from college in the year 2009, I scouted for work in Cebu and landed a Programmer Job at Kitteric.Net. Our company focuses on SEO and Google AdSense then luckily, I was hired as one of the pioneers of Accenture Inc. in their office at Cebu in 2010 where I’m on the Digital Marketing team members specializing in Digital Marketing, Creatives and Branding.

What tools, applications, and workstation setup are you using on your work?

I have used the following:

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS)
  • Microsoft Silverlight
  • Slack
  • Discord
  • Hangouts
  • Viber
  • Skype
  • Zoom.

Are you a nomad? What’s your workstation setup like? (office like, room)

We have an office and also, I have my room as an office too.

How do you manage your time from work, personal, and family?

We have this Work-Life Balance in my company to live on.

How do you cope during stressful days?

To get away with stress, I usually play offline and online computer games, sports, gardening, and one of the best stress reliever is to spend time with the Family.

Your advice to people who want to start or just started freelancing.

Freelancing is the hardest job ever in Online Services. But if you have the will and passion to conquer. It would be just a walk in the park. Get Employed.
