What’s on Your List?


I was shocked.

After a few years, I saw my list of my must-have VA equipment. I think I wrote it more than 10 years ago.

My VA equipment list that was never completed

When I learned that there is an opportunity for me to earn by becoming a virtual assistant, I looked for a mentor and took his courses. I was able to list down my VA equipment list because my mentor, Jomar Hilario, provided them in one of his emails.

Yes, I studied and implemented while looking at this list occasionally. I told myself, “I am going to buy one by one until everything is complete.”

There were times when I wanted to give up the dream (and the list). I moved from corporate to government work, so that meant I had to adjust to travel time and new co-workers.

Nevertheless, I held on. I never stopped dreaming.

One by one, I saw myself buying a few gadgets on the list.

At the same time, I was hired as a VA in 2012.

In 2014, a client signed me up as a full-time Social Media Manager, managing the Facebook Pages of top brands in Asia.

More clients later, I decided to just focus on providing Facebook Marketing services as my business.

Was the VA equipment list completed? No.

Instead, I now have a home office, a standing desk, a corner for the business permits, a handful of motivational quotes to keep me going, two Ferraris and a bunch of Minions (as displays, of course.).

Plus, one of my clients said, “You’re a copywriter. You’re not a VA.”

Who would have thought that a simple list would turn out into something beyond what is written?

Take courage. Never give up.

Just like what one of my clients said, “Everything in life is working on your favor.”
