About Pitin
Joined October 2015
My name is Pitin. Let’s start my story from the day I had my first child…

First-time mothers are sometimes torn between going back to work after their maternity leave or stay at home to take care of their baby. Some mothers are not lucky to have the option of spending more time with their little ones. They need to go back to work. They have bills to pay, baby expenses to cater, save for the future, and so on.

Monitoring my daughter via CCTVs at home (while I work in the office), I felt that there must be another way. That is when my priorities shifted.

I searched online for work from home jobs – most of it, I have already tried while having a full-time job. eBay, Odesk (now Upwork)…my search continued until I found Wealthy Affiliate in October 2015.

I wanted to quit my job then to blog fulltime, but it wasn’t possible just yet. We were only living from paycheck to paycheck.

So, I decided that I’d quit the post-production industry in my 12th year. I started saving for an emergency fund. I wanted to save for one year so I will not have to worry about bills while learning and starting to make blogging work.

I was already learning a lot of things from Wealthy Affiliate, randomly blogging, putting my blogging dream to the pedestal and lost interest of my full-time job back then.

Eight months after I met Wealthy Affiliate, I lost my job. With less than 24 hours notice, my bosses decided that it was already my last day.

I lost my job because as my priorities shifted, the quality of my projects suffered, too. I guess you can say that I became too lazy to do my best and was just going to work for the sake of working.

In a competitive corporate world, "anyone is dispensable" as my boss put it in words.

I mourned. Yes. Just like that and I was completely in the dark. I knew in my heart that to blog full time was my ultimate dream job. I just didn’t expect it to happen sooner. I have always been a hardworking employee…so getting fired was not something I am used to. LOL. There’s really a first-time for everything.

June 30, 2016. My last day in the post-production industry. My supposed to be first day to make blogging work. But the major change gave me depression. For three months I did NOTHING. I was a clueless first-time mother who had a toddler who always needed me. I was jobless. Our things were in boxes while we were looking for a new place to move to.

When I lost my job, I thought I had all the time to blog. But my toddler’s needs were unpredictable. Add the household chores to the daily challenge. It was tough.

But I persisted.

In October 2016, I finally took action. I committed to write one article a day for six months straight (although I only averaged to 3 articles per week).

After almost 5 years of on and off efforts, I am still in this industry, working whenever my time permits, outsourcing here and there…making things work. Blogging helps to put food on the table, pay for bills, and most especially, lets me handle my own time.

You see, “success” is not always about money. It can be defined in other ways.

I am not rich. I do not own a mansion, a sports car, and all those luxuries that most affiliate marketers will show to you as a proof of their success. Instead, my “success” story is on a different level.

I am a stay-at-home, hands-on parent, who can provide financially through my online income, while BEING PRESENT to the lives of people who matter to me.
At the end of the day, we have different goals. Financial freedom, time freedom, location freedom, peace of mind, world peace, LOL.

Looking back, everything is far better compared to when I was just starting out, doing everything by myself. It somehow feels like an accomplishment to be an employer. It feels good to know that I can take days off when I want to or see the business growing despite just "delegating" tasks from time to time.

If there's something I learned from this experience, it's making yourself "indispensable" by learning skills that align with your passion in life.

I love blogging, learning, writing, design, and videos. And getting into the technical side of things (managing servers) is what I'm learning (yes, learning doesn't stop) to make myself indispensable - and be my own boss.

If you are looking to get started in blogging for a living/for money/for time and location freedom, Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be. I have a love and hate relationship with WA lol - mainly because there are so many people I know can benefit from the training but they cannot access the platform even as paying members.

If you are lucky enough to create a free account, go ahead. Start with the FREE pieces of training, then decide from there if it's for you.

I am just a message away.

I would be happy to earn 5,000 dollars per month but I would be ecstatic if it doubles!:) Am i expecting too much as a newbie? :-p Im willing to spend my midnights (up to 4 hours) plus my travel times to work (2hrs) and my lunchtime (1hr) daily to achieve it. That's 7 hours aday. I need to keep my 10-7 job while I work on this for now. I dont have any idea though how long it takes to see the first earning to come in so I will just consistently do it until it happens:)
