Thanks @Fox and all other contributors for such a great thread and all the best with your own challenges!

My first attempt failed on day 11 after I ended my daily 16 hour fast a...
Checking back in to acknowledge I haven't taken action as I said I would. I returned to my old ways of procrastination and action-faking. This has wasted time and delayed any entry to the fastlane.
To develop the discipline and habits required to create the life I want I needed to take new and...
Thank you for your post.
In response to your questions:
Do you mean for business?
I want to show them examples of my work. Although I've used WordPress for several years, the websites I've created have been standard. The first custom example I'm working on is my Toastmasters club's...
My last week wasn't very productive and I didn't get done what I stated. On Friday, instead of doing the same thing and expecting a different result I decided to make some changes.
Previously I've been doing The Miracle Morning's SAVERS with waning impact. On Saturday I went for a run first and...
I’ve created this thread to hold myself accountable and stop the action-faking. I intend to update this weekly.
I am doing this to have a roof over my head. That’s the bottom line.

Thank you for your wise advice!

Yes, all the discussion took place in Upwork chat. I put the hours estimate in the cover letter.
Yes, it was hourly and the weekly cap was 40. After sending the post-submission messages, the weekly cap was reduced to 3...

It was 4,500 total for website design, maintenance and lead generation. The client required copy that passed Copyscape. The client gave me copy from other sources that they wanted an original version of. However, I believe all this is of...
I was invited by a client to write content for their own website. The client is a website designer and I had previously completed a number of smaller, low cost proofreading and copywriting jobs for them.
The client wanted me to write 3 specialist articles of 100% original content...
I called a friend today and offered my copywriting services free of charge to help her and build my portfolio.
As a result we're meeting Monday to discuss PAID work for one of her clients! :fistbump:
Thank you again @Lex DeVille for sharing you wisdom :clap::

Day 2 of the challenge for me:
-> Instead of ignoring the issue, I emailed a website and advised them their contact form wasn't displaying.
-> I reviewed a neighbour's letter to the strata committee.
