This October 25, 2014, Manila Workshops and WAHMderful Life Community, together with Insular Life, Unilab, and vOffice Philippines will hold the Work-At-Home Weekend Expo 2014. This event is open to work-at-home individuals or to those who plan to work from home, whether single, married, or with children. As mentioned by Martine de Luna, founder of WAHMderful Life Community (community of work-at-home-moms), this event will have broader spectrum of topics to be discussed compared with the previous events under WAHMderful Life workshop series. There will be talks on some of the in-demand work at home jobs on the market, streams of legal matters, freelancing, online and home-based business ideas, and more.

Apart from the talks, there will be close to 50 booths, which will feature the businesses of our sponsors and home-based businesses. We will also have some booths that will sell second hand items. All of these booths will be situated at the main hall and simultaneously, the talks will happen at the two other closed classrooms.

With the success of the WAHMderful Life Workshop series whose main objective is to build a support group for work-at-home-moms, the organizers, Martine De Luna of and Ginger Arboleda from Manila workshops, hope that with this event, we would be able to bring knowledge and opportunities to more people and not just to work-at-home-moms.

Plans to bring the workshop series to other parts of the country is in place so that more people will know about this option of working from home.
