A New Year Message To Filipino Freelancers and Business Owners
⭐ Check out the Full video version on our YouTube channel -- https://youtu.be/6lyphh2HgZw Transcript: Hi superfreelancers and business owners! Happy new year! The pandemic was one of the primary reasons we built the Article and Design community last year. It was an answer to a call for Filipinos to earn from the safety of their homes. Last year, 2020, I co-founded the Article and Design community (formerly known as Superfreelancers PH) with a friend shortly after launching the Superfreelancers podcast, now, Article and Design podcast. We want to help Filipinos create a premium career in freelancing and transform freelancers into what we call #SUPERFREELANCERS - a highly paid, creative, happy and globally competitive freelancer. With Article and Design's #1millionmission, we believe that when we all work together, we can transform 1 Million Filipino Freelancers into Super Freelancers. However, as we are aware, the pandemic didn't go away; instead, it has become the "new normal." But time and again, people adapt. Especially Filipinos, we are innovative, and we move forward. Virtually everything turned into online gatherings, just like what we are doing right now. The good side of this, if we didn't create this community, you and I would never be here at the same screen. You and I will never e-meet each other. You and I will never find comfort in each other's experiences. You and I will never share waves of laughter, memes, and struggles in freelancing and business. And even personal lives. And most of all, you and I will never know that we all have the same mission. We all have the same heart. For us, at Article and Design, our work has never been more relevant today. So it's a pleasure and a privilege to share the things I learned as a practitioner for over nine years and showcase the talents of every Filipino creative individual. Overall it was a challenging year - esp for me as your founder and as you look up to me as your leader, or "nanay", if you will. We made mistakes, fixed them, and learned from this process. Personally, I have to admit there are many, many times that I want to give up this community and the mission. But I always ask myself, why would I? What's the point of being human beings if we don't look after each other? What's the point of being a Filipino, or simply a citizen of this world, if we don't extend a helping hand. I saw my fellows' penny pinching on projects and charging $1 gigs just to get hired while I was booking premium clients. It doesn't sit well with me. I was reading my fellow freelancers experience discrimination in the workplace simply because they are Filipinos. I feel something needs to be done. I want to be part of the solution and not the problem. I want to be on the right side of history. So thank you to everyone who is helping me in this mission and wants to be part of the solution. And most of all, thank you for the trust you gave me. I am nowhere near perfect, but I always strive to be my best to put Filipino talents on the map. Continue giving your feedback and testimonials to us - it makes Article and Design better, and I can assure you I read and watch every one of those personally. But we're not yet finished. We are barely scratching the surface. So much more needs to be created to make this mission reach every Filipino at every corner of this world. Sometimes, as creatives, we tend to undermine our achievements over the success of others. I do this too, I am too hard on myself. I have imposter syndrome. But, every time I see one Filipino, a freelancer or a business owner trying to earn their keep, posting their small wins on Facebook and promoting their businesses and online shops, it reminds me that the mission is ALIVE, and that's why the mission is here. And it will outlive you and me. If you've been following me, you know I always say this "Don't focus on how far you are going, focus on how far you've come.." And that's what we

SPECIAL EPISODE: Nine Years of Article and Design
⭐ This is not a podcast episode but a special episode. :) Today, November 05, 2021, is our 9th founding Anniversary. One of the many crazy ideas I had came to life.  When I started freelancing back in 2011, I knew I was taking a huge risk in life and my career. After nine years, here I am, with Article and Design under my belt.  Yes, Article and Design (as a digital marketing business) has been in the digital industry for nine years. Hooray! Article and Design is not only a digital marketing business; it is also a learning hub for Filipino freelancers and business owners. When the pandemic started in 2020, my former business partner and I planned to produce a podcast for Filipinos who wanted to freelance or create their businesses. The goal is to help Filipinos find work online since they got laid off due to the pandemic. And this was our response to the call: Article and Design podcast (formerly known as the Superfreelancers podcast). And then...I thought it must be possible to offer lessons (or an even better) "guide" about building a premium freelancer career for a cheaper cost. No upsells, subscription costs and hidden gimmicks—pure lessons, No BS, No fluff and backed by over nine years of experience. I decided it was time that freelancing courses would be designed for Filipino freelancers by a Filipino freelancer whose intention is not to make a profit out of your "innocence" in freelancing but a mission to change the game of how Filipinos are perceived globally. I vowed only to create lessons made by practitioners who worked as freelancers, not those who made money selling you the "idea" of freelancing. Thus the birth of the Article and Design courses. I wanted to share the "systems" in marketing yourself as a professional Filipino freelancer and build your premium career. Article and Design's heartbeat is on a #1MillionMission. The mission is to transform 1 Million Filipinos to become #SUPERFREELANCERS. Our dream is to create a thriving community that is diverse, accessible, equitable, and inclusive. Fast forward to today; here we are, strong and growing. How time flies when you are having fun, right? Today marks the 9th Anniversary of Article and Design, and I am so thankful that we are here. I created this quick backstory video that may inspire every Filipino freelancer or business owner here. If I gave up nine years ago, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you, everyone, for joining me in this mission. I owe everything to you. Your win is Article and Design's win. If you want to change the game with us, we welcome you to hang your hat!

41: 5 Tips For Staying Motivated During The Pandemic
💙 This episode of the podcast is a response to a poll we asked in our Article and Design FB group about your current struggles during this pandemic. And most of you answered the lack of motivation and not earning enough because you are not motivated to work.  💙 And you know how we do it in Article and Design, we give you tips that are straight-forward, practical and things that your fake friends won’t tell you.😜  🙅‍♀️I am not going to mention exercise, proper nutrition, having a break etc and getting enough sleep because these things are obviously what we should be doing whether we are experiencing a pandemic or not. If you love yourself and your family you should be doing these things. I will not bore you with these things since you are old enough to know why these things are important.  ==  Check out the previous episodes of the podcast👇👇👇  🎧Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2YullX3  📟YouTube Playlist: https://bit.ly/3grmAPf  ==  Tools mentioned  💰 WISE (Transferwise) ➡️ https://articleanddesign.com/wise  💻 SUPERFREELANCERS course ➡️ https://bit.ly/3au8E5P  ==  💌 Join us in our A&D community ➡️ https://bit.ly/36FRAHh and learn more about the systems and skills in marketing yourself as a Filipino freelancer and SET CLIENTS FOR LIFE.  💌 Check out our marketing for Filipino freelancers courses here ➡️ https://bit.ly/3u0hGOV  ==  💙 To continue providing you free lessons, you can support us by donating as low as $3 on our KOFI page ➡️ https://bit.ly/3F5h9B5  ==  DISCLAIMER: This is a personal podcast or series.

2020 Year End Message
WE ARE FINALLY DONE WITH 2020! LAST STORY TIME FOR THIS YEAR: Our podcast came to fruition late this year of 2020. We first named it as SUPER FREELANCERS PH Podcast and then rebranded it to ARTICLE AND DESIGN PODCAST later on. In June this year, during the quarantine/lockdown Margaret and I released our first episode. To date we have more than 3,500++ downloads from 14 countries across 24 episodes. What started as a pastime to get through the pandemic and to catch up on each other's lives has taken on a life of its own as our listeners grow and began to suggest ideas for future episodes. We adapted quickly by recording via Zoom. We didn't really know what we were getting ourselves into so taking care of all the production shizz has a little bit of a steep learning curve. The first and second series of the podcast happened during the height of the quarantine and we don't really receive funding for it  except from our own pocket (haha) but we wanted to keep the momentum going because we were getting lots of great feedback. BRANDING IS KEY Having a clear branding has really helped us raise our profile as the co-creators of the Article and Design in a short amount of time. We have also learnt that the podcast is the beginning of our brand rather than the end point. A&D FAM 💙 We launched our own Facebook Group the Article and Design: Super Freelancers PH, which now has more than 1,300 members and is growing fast. And some of them joined by discovering our podcast! We made invaluable connections and support inside the group from like minded individuals and fellow filipino freelancers and we are so happy to be building a family of SUPER FREELANCERS FINALLY.... The podcast wasn’t a hit overnight but it has grown enormously since it began six months ago and is continuing to rise exponentially. The podcast is a great reminder that patience is a virtue It takes time to build an audience and to make people believe in the value that you can offer. Also.... Passion projects are worth pursuing! We started the podcast because it was a way to talk about a topic we truly cared about. We though we were going to put out a few episodes and that would be the end of it. While it has taken a lot of work to get to this stage, it has been worth it... Thank you to our guests and co-hosts! Thank you for taking your time! We appreciate you forever!!! 💙💕 Jen Obenza Job Eloja Milna Tulao Vasquez Ella De Leon Bern Boclaras Francis Aquino Tanya Loyola Kris Banzon Thank you so much for being a part of the A&D community! See you in 2021 💙 Your co-creators and biggest fans, Candice & Margaret 😊💕

Many filipino freelancers and aspiring freelancers struggle in finding direction when getting started because they are trying to be everything to everyone.  “Throw enough mud at the wall, some of it will stick”.

06: 5 Biohacking Tips for Filipino Freelancers
In this podcast episode, we discuss what is biohacking and how you can use it to become the best version of yourself. We will share to you biohacking tips we do so you can also use it to level up your health, performance and productivity. Biohacking is scientific based since it offers a systems-thinking approach to your own biology. This is what sets biohacking apart from the rest of the self-improvement. Think of these biohacks as your super powers into becoming a super freelancer. Uncover all of these to have more energy and focus, to be free of disease, to have a better memory and to perform optimally in your freelancing business. It’s important to know what biohacking is because what you put into your body has an ENORMOUS impact on how you feel. Here are 5 biohacking tips for freelancers and how to start incorporating them into your daily routine: Being mindful of your nutrition. What we eat and drink is one way we alter our state of mind. Get in the flow through meditation. Meditation has been one of our super powers to boost our creativity. If I experience creative blocks, I put my phone down, close my laptop and just be still. Meditation is a great tool to enhanced awareness. To change where we direct our attention, we need to become aware of our attention. Exercise/Get outdoors Start by just spending a little more time outside and get some sunlight. Try to connect yourself with nature and ground. Connections. Surround and connect yourself your people who are good for you and your soul. Be picky of who you deal with because  your connections can either boost your energy and vibration or deplete it. There are a lot of people who are energy vampires like those dementors in harry potter who suck the life out of you. Practice gratitude Gratitude is a daily practice, similar to meditation. Like meditation, it becomes more natural over time. In fact, gratitude and meditation go very well together. You can try to have your own gratitude journal and write at least three things you are grateful for the day. You can even just put it on your notes app in your phone. What you put into your body affects what you get out. In this case, your thoughts create the world you experience. If you put gratitude in, you get gratitude out. We will discuss more tips like this in our bonus micro course: Habits: The Good Juju Freelancer when you enroll in the SUPER FREELANCERS COURSE. Here’s the link to enroll: https://articleanddesign.com/enroll-here/ *Caveat: These biohacking tips are safe biohacks you can try at home. The best biohacking results come from being well-informed and cautious about what works for your body. What works for us may not work for you.
