WORKING FROM HOME: FACTORS TO CONSIDER IN JOINING A COMMUNITY, ENROLLING IN A COURSE, & FINDING THE RIGHT MENTOR.
Being a Freelancer is probably one of the best life arrangements every independent aspirer would want to have in their careers. For mothers, they usually prefer the home-based setup (after that family priority shift) so that they can be more hands-on to their kids while providing for their needs.
For those who haven't tried freelancing at all, finding the right community for support and to coach you is an essential stepping stone towards landing a home-based job. Having someone to guide you as you hone your skills and knowledge can definitely help you get a job to level up your career.
A good coach will help you identify your niche, what knowledge you already possess, what your strengths are and determine what digital skills you need to excel more.
Filipina Homebased Moms (FHMoms) is a community where you can certainly get the opportunity for support, since the members are really active and open in offering strategies and information, gradually helping you step by step. It is a community that hears and understands you.
Let’s talk about the mentorship in FHMoms.
What are the things you need to consider to be able to find the right mentor for your freelancing career?
Here are some:
A vital factor to consider is how easy it is for you to communicate with your coach. How long is the coaching and training? How often can you approach your mentor? Is your mentor easy to talk to?
Remember that a good mentor must always be available and willing to help you and motivate you to achieve success.
Are you getting what you paid for? Is it worth the price to enroll in that class? Does the trainer gain good feedback? Can you review or recheck the courses again?
Always consider the comments and recommendations of fellow aspirants. Don’t forget to double check the trainer's credentials and the class curriculum to verify if they can definitely add value to you. Also note if the courses are easy to access again after training.
Mommy MK offers 4-hours of FREE LIVE Webinar on their Facebook group for you to be knowledgeably equipped in freelancing, how to start, what you need, where to send your applications, etc. She can answer all your questions about the freelancing industry for free. The community also offers mastery classes as well. The mentors are all professional and experienced. Quality mentoring is crucial for a freelancer’s growth.
STYLE OF TEACHING
Look for someone who also shares his skills based on experience and not just by the book. Someone who makes training sound more interesting, and cares more about your development and career evolution. A mentor must be your personal critic as you build your professional path.
As a mentee, in return, you must also be fully committed to give your time, make yourself responsible, and be prepared for feedback.
The greatest challenge of working from home is TIME MANAGEMENT! Yes! We’ve all been there. That is why the courses that we are offering can be accessed and studied at your own pace.
The FHMoms community and mentors are here to guide, provide knowledge and of course to prepare you in the virtual world.
At the end of the day, the motivation to learn starts from us. No matter how experienced the trainer is, or how supportive the community is to you - if you don't have that burning desire to learn..., then everything’s pointless.
Remember that the success of the student is also the success of the mentor.
