More than a month
More than a month had passed since my last post
My 2009 started right.
I had lots of assignments and projects through Odesk.
I also started working on my family's business as operations manager for the online services group.
Working full time in Odesk and an 8-5 job is rather hard and requires a major adjustment for me. I was so used to working at home, in my own time and pace.
Now, I have to get up early, travel an hour and a half to get to the office, work on both Odesk and as an operations manager. It is really hard juggling both responsibilities, but right now I can say I am getting the hang of it. I am capable of multi-tasking my work without sacrificing any of it, I was able to deliver results for both positions.
The difference now, aside from going to the office, is I am handling 4 people who are newcomers when it comes to online work and also the other part of the work which is real estate. I didn't know that I would come to a point wherein I have to train people with zero or basic knowledge on fields that I know. It is fun training them, am very proud if I see progress, sad if they are having a hard time understanding everything.
Right now, my goal is to continue teaching them what I know about the work at hand.
