Lulu | Revenue PayPal Withdrawal

I finally reached the threshold for receiving sales revenue from

As a non-US resident and my ebooks include a free Lulu ISBN, the IRS requires Lulu to withhold US income taxes on any sales delivered to the US.

As per written in their support page (Support > My Account > Taxes > Income tax information)

"We distinguish between "other revenue" and royalties. Only sales of titles with a Lulu ISBN count as royalties, which are reportable by Lulu to the US tax authorities and subject to US tax withholding.
A valid US tax form on file can reduce or eliminate the tax withholding amount."

The U.S. standard rate for these sales is 30%.

To apply reduced tax treaty rates (if available), I must submit a completed W-8BEN form.

FarmOn | 17th Cycle Opening

Last January 08, nag-open ang 17th cycle ng FarmOn.

Magtatagal ito hanggang February 15, according sa kanilang Facebook page announcement.

Pero siyempre, para makapili ng short-term crops, kailangang makasingit sa server nila sa opening day pa lang.

Finally, pagkatapos kong magfail sa huling 2 cycles noong nakaraang taon ay nakapaghanda ako ngayon.

Iyon ay salamat sa pagsesend ng FarmOn ng announcement kung kailan sila mag-oopen ng cycle thru email, Facebook page at pati sa FarmOn account.

Nakapaghanda nga ako pero ang tanong, nakapasok ba ako sa website nila sa opening ng 17th cycle at nakapag-reinvest?

VA Bootcamp | My 3rd to 6th Week

Ideally if you follow the given course outline in the bootcamp, you will be done with the course in 30 days.

Obviously, I am not an ideal student who was able to finish it within 30 days. HAHAHAHA

As of now, I have just finished Module 9 which is about creating a freelancing profile.

I took my time in creating my Upwork profile overview [as what Jason have also said in the lesson] since I have already been rejected before I entered the bootcamp.

I was able to finally resubmit my profile in Upwork on January 2, and I read their email confirmation on January 4 informing me about the approval of my profile. Finally!
