About Shie Zarate

Corporate Slave To Digital Entrepreneur

Hi, I’m Shie from Manila, offering to help turn your followers into clients using proven social media marketing growth strategies.

I’m an Industrial Engineer by profession and worked for more than two decades in a corporate setup doing product development, planning, and sourcing for an international sports fashion brand. It was exciting at first but not fulfilling in the long run.

Over time the 9 to 5 daily grind became difficult because of a newfound perspective. I want more control over my life and be the one in charge.

I love traveling, and traveling while working has always been the goal. I started travel blogging in 2009 to share my beautiful experiences, and I still wish to continue doing it. Shie Went To Town is my personal blog, you might want to check it out.

To wake up to more awesome views and sunrises while sipping a fresh brew and capturing those moments through my lens.

To always look forward to beautiful mornings and good breakfasts when I’m in another land. It fuels my productivity and creative juices.

To witness and appreciate God’s greatness every time.

I love dogs, and I’m a fur mom to Simba, a Lhasa poo. He was a pup covered with ticks when I adopted him from a friend.

I took him straight to the vet for a check-up and got rid of the ticks before bringing him home because my sister has two dogs waiting for him.

I love him dearly, and I wish to adopt more dogs and possibly a cat in the future.

After more than a decade of the 9 to 5 daily grind, I did operations consultancy works for some garments manufacturing company while doing side gigs writing contents  for some clients. 

The pandemic made it difficult for consultancy work to thrive. Fortunately, the content writing side hustle provided for my needs during the lockdown. 

This coronavirus pandemic brought out the realization that now is the best time to go full time digital.

I’m certain you are busy running your business. I’m here to help you unload your burdens. Let me handle the nitty-gritty of social media, create brand awareness for your business, and convert your followers to clients. You stay in your zone of genius and allow me to do what I do best. 

I’d love to hear from you.
