My Portable Job idea
September 11, 2012 11:59pm CST
PortableJobs.Biz is an idea I had while on a boat ride from Tacloban City to Cebu on September 11, 2001. I was playing cards with a bunch of friends and we were on our way to a Wall Climbing competition. I can still remember the sights, sounds and scents on the ship as I looked at the faces of each people in the group. We were happy. And we were getting paid to have fun. Back then I was working as a Disc Jock for a local Radio station and as a crew for a video store. These were odd jobs that helped me pay for some things as I was going through college. The money was OK but what really made me happy was playing in a band. And we weren't earning that much. Heck we would've done it for free if we wanted. And blogging. I was a really prolific blogger. Writing an equivalent of a small book everyday. And I didn't even get paid for it. Well up until I discovered Google Adsense. Still, I would've done it even without the money. It just made me happy to be able to write anytime I wanted and wherever a great idea struck me. All I needed was a pen and paper or a voice recorder to flesh out my ideas. I realized that the only way to really be happy is to be in a working environment that didn't require you to be confined within the 4 walls of an office or sitting behind a desk. I wanted a job that helped me fully utilize my skills. I wanted a job that still allows freedom. A job I could carry around with me. A Portable Job. And that's how PortableJobs.Biz came about. A portable job is any type of work you can carry around with you. You can be a carpenter, a skilled worker, a virtual assistant, a blogger, a manager, a blogger, an artist. Whatever it is, as long as you can work wherever you want, that's a portable job! Today, I am happy with the things I do outside the confines of an office and earning enough to keep me going. There are many places to get a portable job if you only find the courage and will to go and get it. Do you have a portable job?

The URL PortableJobs.Biz brings me to an error 404. The URL is not found on the server. Is there any other way to get to that website ? I didn't have a portable job but , I did some things that were about going out and have some fun : I educated small children when I was a student. I had to help them with home work , being a good example as an adult , I used to walk with them out side and walk with my cute dog. They saw how good a dog can be , how to communicate with the dog. Well , walking the dog is always a good activity that I like. A neighbor also paid me to walk her dog when she was on vacation. I think those two jobs are portable because of the mobility and the freedom they give. Of course it is not a total freedom , you still have to do some stuff , but , it is fun most of the time.

a portable job is any job you can bring with you anywhere you go. Mostly online jobs. Like blogging, being a virtual assistant, seo specialist. but it can also be an offline job like carpentry hahaha it's all encompassing. my portable job is online though. what do you specifically need?
