Faith Perez from Affordable Staff and welcome to our RAW Q&A session around outsourcing.

With our business operating from Australia and our managed office within the Philippines, we’ve created these series of videos for businesses that have considered outsourcing and would like to get hands on experience of our staff here in the Philippines.

Today we’re asking 3 questions from 3 different staff around success and working with us in our business.

Who inspires you and why?

Justin - I think who inspires me is my family. Primarily because I keep on working for them. The reason for my being is of course them. I think the technical question is not who but what because I have a lot of bills to pay so that's what keeps me going. And also I booked a couple of flights over international destination so I have to work my heart for that and earn before I go on that trip.

Nadia - My mom inspires me being a single woman with no kids. She inspires me to do my best because in the near future I would love to return the favor and take care of her the way she took care of me for so many years.

Ron - Inspiration for me personally has always been family. It's the most integral part of my being and it started with my parents and now I have my wife and kids. As the answer to why, at the end of the day among your friends and colleagues the ones who are gonna' care for you the most is going to be your family. So at the end of the day it's going to be them who's going to be at your side.

What do you think makes a person successful?

Ron - For me I think that most important aspect of getting personal success is not only skill, not only talent but most of all it is 80% attitude because whatever talent you possess you won't go any far if you don't possess the right attitude for pressing for what your goals are.

Justin - I believe that the person is successful if he has goals, if he has purpose in his life. If you do something that you love and put passion to it and if you think that what you are doing could make you a bigger or greater person I guess that's what make you successful. A square peg in a round hole is a the worst thing I guess so better love your job. As what they said, if you get a job that you love you will never work a day in your life I guess that's really true and that goes to all of us.

Nadia - I think what makes a person successful is if they have balance in both their work and personal lives. For me my definition of success would be if a person finds work that they do enjoy.

What do you family think about what you do?

Nadia - My family has always been really supportive on what I want to do and now that I am working at Affordable Staff they're really happy for me because as an admin assistant I get to practise the skills that I have namely being organised and the ability to multi-task.

Ron - Personally I think they're happy for me because now I am working in an office and they don't see a lot of stress. They think I'm actually improving my skills with working with an international client and also developing my work ethics especially within the office with my colleagues and the management that is closely watching and helping in the office ethics that I need to improve on.

Justin - I told my family that I am working with Affordable Staff. It's basically an outsourcing company and what they know about it is pretty shallow. They think is that I am just working for a client in Australia but what they don't know that I am working with the coolest people that anybody can ever work with. Carly and MB they are very nice, very friendly and treat me like just a friend. And what my family don't know is that I am happy and very lucky to have a client like them.

Ok, that’s it
