Masarap kumain sa mga restaurant pag libre ng mga friends. Wala kang iniintinding bill after kumain.

Pero pag ikaw ang taya sa kainan, minsan nakatingin ka pa lang sa menu at umoorder ka pa lang, alam mo na kung magkano ang bill mo. Pag medyo mahal na, hindi ka na mag-oorder ng dessert. Bakit kaya? Dahil we value our own money. Sabi nga nila dugo at pawis natin ang sahod natin.

When I was searching for extra income, I also received free e-books, free videos, parang yung sinend ko sayo.

Pero what happened with those free e-book na nakuha ko?

Did I read them? Did I watch the videos?

Of course, yes! Pero did I take action? Did I apply what I have learned?

Not quite. Bakit? Kasi libre ko lang nakuha.

Pero nung I spent Php 24,000 sa course, talaga namang bawat tinuturo sa akin, ginagawa ko. Bukod sa goal kong makasama ang mga anak ko na naging motivation ko, syempre may factor din na wag masayang yung binayad ko sa course na yun. The result? I am now home for good.

Friend, ask ko lang, nabasa mo na ba yung free e-Book ko? Nakagawa ka na ba ng profile mo sa Upwork? If you remember, I gave some tips in creating an impressive profile. I also gave tips in searching for clients.

Kung yes ang sagot mo, I am so happy for you. I hope you continue that learning and taking action attitude.

But if you are like me, that free stuff makes me lazy, you might want to spend money paid books and courses.
