Lianne Palmenco

Lianne was enjoying work at an art museum in the Philippines, when BAM — the pandemic bulldozed her life.

The museum closed, her income disappeared, but as weird as it sounds, it was actually a blessing in disguise.

It forced her to look in the mirror and think, “What do I want to do with my life?”

That led her to go full-on beast mode taking online copywriting courses, earning a digital marketing certification, studying anything about online business she could get her hands on, and before she knew it…

She snagged her first virtual assistant gig.

And then another. And then another.

Now, instead of fighting Manila’s horrendous traffic every day, she's island-hopping around the Philippines with her trusty laptop.

Sure, she graduated with an Art History degree from the University of the Philippines, and her museum job had its moments…

But let's be real — now that she’s living as a digital nomad, discovering new spots, and soaking in all the good vibes...it’s sure hard to complain.
