"ANO'NG HIMALA itong nangyayari sa akin?! Bigla akong lumakas, at mabilis na humihilom ang mga sugat ko sa aking katawan?!" Tanong niya sa kanyang sarili, habang sakay ng kabayo at hinahabol ang bandidong may hawak kay Vianca sa isang malaki't mabilis na kabayo. Sa dakong likuran niya, ay naiwan ang mga duguan at lupaypay na gumagapang sa lupa na mga bandidong nakalaban niya't napabagsak.

Long-time best friends
from the southernmost part of Luzon, Philippines have opposing strategies to heal their dying country.
One points out rebellion as the best way to reform
everything. The other one points out change could be
made through street parliament, where Filipinos simply
march in the streets.

ang lalaking tumutulak ng aking kama papunta sa

Moving Backward, to Move
"... Sometimes, we need to move back
before we can move forward to our target goal. It's like a stone
on a slingshot. We need to stretch the rubber sling backward to
release the stone towards our target. Same thing with the bow
and arrow - we need to stretch backward the string of the bow
that holds the head of the arrow, before we release it towards

"....The starting point for any
kind of venture in life is a goal. Mine was to resolve my
financial problems and be financially stable later. With that
goal, you must have strategies on how to reach it. And once you
have the strategies, do it one step at a time, until you reach
the point of success."

Tips for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW),
Global Online Filipinos, & Pinoys in the Philippines
BLOGGING AS EXTRA INCOME FOR OFWs
Filipinos are always
up-to-date when it comes to technology. But they don't know how to
use them as source of income. They merely enjoy them as sources of
entertainment. Unlike in America and other advanced countries,
every new technology in the market is immediately used as instrument
for business and source of main income.
Social networking, like
Facebook and Twitter, is only a place to kill spare times for Filipinos,
specially those who are working abroad and far from their families
in the Philippines. Very few of the Filipinos overseas (even local
Pinoys) actually know the powers of social networking as a place to
make money without going abroad.
If you know how to
write about things that you passionately do and wanted to share
to others, you could use blogging as a jumping board for earning
money anywhere you are, as long as you have Internet access.
Then, you could use social networking sites like Facebook,
Twitter, Google +, and more as your places to capture
subscribers, fans, and customers.
As overseas Filipino workers, you could write
your own blog on your spare times, and earn dollars as
commission-based affiliates for advertisers in your blog.
TheNokiaBlog.com, for example,
started just as a hobby by a young Filipino in New York City - sharing
his passion for Nokia cell phones. Few years later, it became his
main source of income, and a way to travel around the world for
Last month, he and his professional Nurse
wife, packed their belongings in New York City, to enjoy
traveling around the world while writing their blogs anywhere
they go, as long as there is Internet. You could follow the
journals of their travels at
Married2Travel.com, written by Mark's wife, who resigned
from her Nursing job in favor of her newfound way to earn money
while having fun around the world.

OFW's Roadmap to Starting a Business in the
Starting a business needs careful planning, analyzing,
and even testing before it's fully implemented. It is a risky venture if you
will simply jump into it by impulse. It’s not only money, that's lost
in a business that fails. Time, reputation, job, and family relationships
are wrecked when business goes bankrupt.
The cycle of risks never stop even if
the business survives or becomes financially successful. But you
can dramatically reduce the odds of failure if you develop the
right plan and actions in every phase of your business.
What are the basis for planning, starting,
and growing a business? What are the best strategies to look upon
when starting a business? Below are general strategies most entrepreneurs
use when starting a business.
Dig Into Your Passion.
Start a business that you know, and love to grow. What are the
things that you love most, and are worth developing into business?
Focus into it, and find a business that fits that passion. Do you
love to cook, and is fast food service needed in your place?
