Fourth Billing Service Raffle winner announced!
Announcing the fourth winner of the Billing Service Raffle – Michelle Angela Lazo-Cabutaje!! Congrats, Michelle!
Michelle shared with us her personal journey into the world of freelancing in the Philippines.
“I am Michelle Angela Lazo-Cabutaje from the Philippines. A Chemical Engineer, a wife, a mother of 2 lovely kids and a Freelance Virtual Assistant servicing US, Canadian and other non-US companies. I have been in the business for almost 7 years now. I started when my eldest son came into this world. My first online work is Data Entry Specialist of an Appraisal company in Canada.
I focused more on Data Entry and Virtual Assistant – Research work to balance my time between taking care of my kids in the morning and doing online work at night. Currently, I have two regular online positions: a Chat Support Agent of a US company and a Virtual Assistant of a realtor in Minnesota.
I am an Engineer in profession but decided to stop working in the industry practicing my profession when I gave birth to my eldest son since no one will take care of him. And in the Philippines, it is not recommended that only one parent is working. So I found a way that can add financial support to us. Luckily, I am blessed with most of my clients. They are very supportive and understanding.
One of the biggest challenges is working online. Dealing with people on the other side of the world. People who you do not physically see while you give your energy and service to them.
Always be trustworthy and do your best in all your work.
We discovered Payoneer when one of my clients didn’t have Paypal account, so we looked for an alternative. Luckily, we found Payoneer, a better alternative, great service. Creating invoices is very simple to follow [with Billing Service]. Processing time of payment to withdrawal to bank account is continuously improving. Great service!”
