If you’re a Yoga Health Coach who has been hesitant to hire independent contractors, you need to hear this episode!
I am currently a General Virtual Assistant and a Member Onboarding Support team member at Yogahealer. I have been with the organization for almost a year and I am enjoying every single day of learning and new experiences. I love how my role allows me to build a connection and strong relationship not only within the team but with everyone from the community.
I live in the Philippines and it is my biggest dream to travel all around Asia and the world. I enjoy my time alone by reading books about and mangas, watching anime, or listening to music. I play a lot of video games too!
I am Lori and I have been working in the call center industry in the Philippines for the last 17 years. Being in this part of the world, my whole life working is spent mostly on the night or graveyard shift. The industry supports the EU or the US region explaining why the shift hours. It is one of the highest paying if not the highest paying job available in the market, hence why most of us opt to join these organizations. There are hundreds of call centers, so the competition is high benefitting the employees with their packages and benefits.
I worked in different areas in the business and handled a variety of roles and most of it is people and operations management and human resources, whether the line of business is Financial, travel, wellness, and telecommunications.
My career being an employee ended when I joined Yogahealer last year as its Operations manager and there I see things differently that yes I can still earn to support my family but I can thrive my body by owning my time, and allocate it to what are my priorities. Working for YH is like an eye-opener that there is more life than just spending my 13-15 hours a day, preparing and traveling back and forth to work, working at the four corners of my office. These were all replaced by me sending and picking my kids to school, preparing their breakfast and tuck them to bed. And this brings me joy, pride, and happiness than those recognition I got from my 17 years of working
