I hired a new writer recently and I had Julia show her the ropes. One of the things they bonded over was having a home office.

Apparently, a pretty home office is something a lot of OFS aspire to have.

My new writer, Seagz, is working on building a beautiful, Instagrammable home office from scratch. Julia convinced Seagz to write about it.


“Hey, I need a workspace that gets my creative juices flowing!

So, I rolled-up my sleeves and converted a spare room into my ultimate work nook. 

No, that’s not my home office. It’s a picture from Pinterest. But when I saw that, I hoped that would be my office someday. I’m in the process of getting it to that point. Our house is being renovated, and the office I have right now is a work in progress.

Why is it so important for me to have this space?

As I assembled my desk, I envisioned it as my mission control center, the place where I’ll be managing tasks, coordinating projects, and delivering top-notch work.

It’s a space that reflects my commitment to professionalism and attention to detail.

My computer setup is where I’ll be on standby, ready to tackle any task or project you throw my way.

Transitioning to the world of remote work as a Filipino virtual assistant was a game-changer for me.

It offered the freedom to escape cookie-cutter cubicles and that oh-so-”flattering” fluorescent lighting, just like the one I’m currently fine-tuning. 

In creating this inspiring workspace, I didn’t just build a physical nook; I crafted a symbol of the flexibility and potential that remote work offers to employers and dedicated Online Filipino Specialists like me.


Hiring and working with a new OFS is like Seagz’s home office. It’s a work in progress, but I see the potential. A bit of paint, a bit of hard work, and I bet it can be beautiful.

The thing I love the most about my home office is the view.

Have you seen the workspace of any of your OFS?  Ask them.
