      Have your own office in posh BGC for peanuts!

      Yes, you read that right. It’s now possible for the successful freelancer or self-employed crafter to own an office in the middle of the most coveted commercial areas, Bonifacio Global City, and not go bankrupt. In fact, for the same amount, they can have the whole shebang – internet, someone to answer your calls, a guard, a receptionist, and a partridge in a pear tree.

      Plus a meeting room that looks like it can be found on the set of Mad Men. How, you say? Why, via PLDT’s vOffice, of course!

      The meeting room of your potential new office. "Peggy, be a doll and take down a letter and get be a coffee.  And hurry, brilliance can't wait."

        If you’re anything like most of the Pinoy population, you know exactly how many weeks it is til Christmas. And if you’re a person who still has to work for their money (sorry, Napoles and your thieving crew, but I did mean to exclude you), you’re already trying to figure out how to make ends meet this Christmas season.

        We’re trained to give until it hurts, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find little ways to ease the blow to our pockets. In my case, I’m making my gifts. In many other people’s cases, they’re watching for sales and nice ways to save and still be able to give their loved ones what they want. and that is no short list!

          Tips for refitting your store

          posted on by Little Bunny posted in pennies and sense | Leave a comment  

          One of my most important failures was when I ran my own little scrapbook store. There was a ton of things I didn’t have control of, including inventory and costing. So I learned by getting burned. There are a lot of decisions I would never make again, and a few lessons I took away regarding retail. 🙂

          I'd really much go into the hospitality and food biz. :(

                  Yummy Eats and why it wasn’t all that yummy

                  posted on by Little Bunny posted in noms and nibbles, pennies and sense | 2 comments

                  Was I the only one who found the annual Yummy Magazine event, Yummy Eats, hard to enjoy? No.

                  It was, in fact, so chaotic, that The Girl abandoned me to the melee and waited in the parking lot. We don’t own a car. You know who did own a car? The jerk of a guy who had apparently had enough of the event and drove off, leaving his girlfriend in the lurch, in the same parking lot. The Girl had the awkward experience of watching the poor lady rant and rave on the phone, clutching her gold Yummy plate and crying about how he could leave her like that.

                    A very wise woman once told me that if you wanted something with all your heart, the Universe would conspire with you to achieve it.  You only have to make up your mind and ask for it.

                    So I did.

                    I am now a fully independent service provider, and may the Universe have mercy on my goals.
