I’ve always been a dreamer, call it cliche, but I wanted to travel the world. When I was a kid, my parents would talk about me joining the military for travel benefits. I think that’s where it all started. My dad would mention how he was stationed in Germany and my mom, who immigrated to the U.S. from the Philippines, would tell me I could go anywhere I want.
Well, I never enlisted, but I have lived abroad in six countries and that number just keeps growing. How did I do it? It’s simple, I chose to live my life the way I wanted to. In 2017, I realized I was so bored of how I was living life. I needed a change. I’ve always been a little dramatic and I really proved that when I bought a one-way ticket to Europe.
I had no plan, other than wanting to travel. Soon enough, I learned how to leverage the internet to make an income from what I love doing. The first business I made for myself was selling copywriting services. I’ve always been a writer at heart and with English being my first language, creating written content for foreigners came naturally.
After doing that for a while, I wanted to do more. One day, I was reminiscing about back when I had my own bath bomb business. I did everything from creating products, designing the packaging, and marketing. It was a really fun learning experience that I did purely out of joy and I was missing that feeling. I knew I wanted to get back into creating and designing, so I decided to get more involved with business branding.
Now, I help passionate entrepreneurs confidently create their brand by designing all their visual elements. This includes logo creation, web design, and marketing graphics. It’s so rewarding watching a business grow and knowing you were a huge help to its’ success. If interested, you can find more information about my services here.
In August 2017, Outglobing was created. I wanted to show the world that traveling is possible and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Back then, this blog had focused majorly on travel and slightly on the digital nomad lifestyle.
Over the first 6 months, Outglobing grew larger than I would ever expect. People were genuinely interested in my travels, but more curious about how it was possible to work while traveling. I learned that people wanted to hear more about starting a business for themselves and my experiences with that.
Using this blog to help others has always been the main goal here, so naturally, adjusting to my audience should reflect that. Outglobing has now transitioned into a space where I can share what I’ve learned from creating my own online business and working remotely. Now, I help others who want to live a similar lifestyle.
