You’re thinking of quitting your office-based job because you want to have more time with your family. You’re eager to say goodbye to the daily grind of tiresome office politics and the long commute. You’re sick and tired of being constantly sick and tired.
You’ve heard about some people working full time from their own home and you’re now seriously considering the possibility of doing the same. The problem is, you don’t know where to start. What would you do?
If you spend a lot of time online updating your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and if you’re genuinely interested in interacting with other people online, you may want to consider becoming a Blog and Social Media Entrepreneur.
Benefits of Becoming a Blog and Social Media Entrepreneur
As a Blog and Social Media Entrepreneur, you can work online as a freelancer. Working online has many perks, foremost of which is having a flexible schedule, and you get to decide where and when to work, and also who to work with. This lifestyle isn’t for everyone though, as it requires a lot of discipline, with your work being mostly self-directed. It can be fulfilling, since you get to choose your clients and the causes that you want to advocate for.
From Janette Toral of Digital Filipino, here are the benefits of becoming a Blog and Social Media Entrepreneur:

Working with clients entails drawing up marketing campaigns, creating content via blogs and social media. Businesses are now aware of the power of social media in influencing brand perception and buyer decisions. It will be your job to be an influencer, to help businesses generate awareness and to help them achieve their objectives.
