When I was young, my dad had imparted these wise words which stuck with me until this very day. He said that the right business is the way to go (to be successful financially and to be contented). I am now employed with a stable job, but I still remember these words. I guess that is why I have so many activities and ‘rackets’. I was telling my friends that I was really like this, ever since I was young. I would have tons of activities, from being the editor-in-chief of our school paper while being the president of a club to being active in our church. When I want something and when I have an idea in mind, I just go do it. I feel incomplete when my mind is not busy.

Right now, I have a dozen of sideline businesses and what I usually avoid is spending overhead cost. As a professional blogger, social entrepreneur, social media consultant and now, workshop event coordinator, I spend a lot in Starbucks. I always hold meetings with clients there. I recently found a great place where I and other freelancers, like me, could hold meetings. It’s a place called CoWo.

For a minimal price of Php 10,000 a year, you can get to enjoy using their facilities and their ‘nomad area/space’.
