In 2004 I figured something out I hoped the rest of the world would never figure out.
I had quit my job (the only job I ever had, I worked there for 8 months right out of college) and was working from home. I worked my butt off.
My wife was also at home with our little child and she started inviting me to go on walks with them in the middle of the day. Like, 10am.
It was amazing.
I could get a little exercise in right in the middle of the workday and still get my work done before and after.
Over the years this turned into more and more, longer and longer daytime activities. Hiking, biking, skiing…
The best part, nobody else knew so wherever we went we were almost all alone.
Then 2020 happened.
People worked from home and discovered my secret world.
Then people started resigning from their jobs because they had this new freedom.
The Great Resignation isn’t just happening here in the US. It’s happening in the Philippines too. Filipino workers are resigning from their office jobs and companies are having a hard time keeping their employees.
Lately, we’ve noticed a weird silver lining to it.
In the past 2 years, we’ve noticed a significant spike in jobseeker profiles at Onlinejobs.ph. Our database has been growing steadily over the years. But what made the recent spike interesting was the greater number of highly experienced workers signing up.
These are workers who have years of practical work experience. Some of them even have advanced degrees. Some even have management experience. These are people who normally wouldn’t work online or have never considered working from home until the pandemic happened.
So what does this mean for you?
If you’re looking for an OFS with specific technical skills, now’s the best time to find them in our database.
If you’re scaling up your business and you’re looking for an OFS with corporate experience, now’s the best time to look for them.
If you’re short on time, use my OneVAAway.com system. It shortens the process for finding a great OFS you can trust.
I always do my work at home and then go play. Here’s the one time I took my laptop out with me. I was post surgery but my family still wanted to play. I sat and worked while they skied. It was beautiful.
