    Documenting my journey to become a freelancer

    In the past few months, I have dabbled with a lot of things. I've tried coding, graphic designing, copywriting, SEO. Stuck to something for a while, and then moved on to the next cool thing. I was on the sidewalk. And it has wasted a lot of time. I tried getting clients on upwork/fiverr but no...

    So, I've been meaning to learn coding and web design for a long time now, and I'm still perplexed. While there a number of services(wordpress, pixieset, wix,etc) I still wonder "Why would Someone go through the process of coding for long hours if he could just customise his site from any of the...

    How to Charge Clients Properly?

    Hey there, so I started freelancing a year ago and it has been a total disaster. I had difficulties to find clients and I also had huge self-esteem issues that hold me back. I'm currently doing web development (mostly WordPress, Angular, and general HTML/CSS/Javascript) and when I need to give...

    She Left a $60k Job to Freelance (with a twist)..

    My wife isn't a member on this board, so I'm posting for her. Back in February, she started freelancing. She's never had a side hustle. Never started a business. Never freelanced. She had a $60k salary at her full-time job. In her first month freelancing, she closed around $100 and doubted it...

    First entrepreneur steps on Upwork following Lex DeVille's Guide

    I lost my job and starting all over again learning web development @ 40 years old.

    I lost my high paying remote CAD job a year ago. I thought that job would go on forever since the company seemed big, backed up by a billion-dollar investment firm, and has been in the industry for over 30 years. I was wrong. Without warning, we were told that it's shutting down. I was shocked...

    Success is a product, uncomfortable situations are founders

    10 years ago, at Monday morning, when I was pressing the button of my pc at my office early morning around 9.15 am. One of my seniors asked 'Naveed! You need to go to the waiting room and wait for the boss' I said 'Why?' He told because you had not come to the office last Saturday. I went to...

    Leadership Lessons From the Bottom: A Freelancer's Perspective

    It was a tough decision. Starting out as a freelancer, rather than going straight into a scalable business. It went against much of the advice here — bypassing CENTS for my first venture. I dream of being a leader. A visionary. Shaping the world through business, taking care of my employees...

    Copywriting/Freelancing to get going

    Hi, I have been on the forum for a couple of months now and tried to take action, but I am sort of paralysed, because I don`t really know, what to do, and I am afraid to lose money. So right now I am thinking of starting in the freelance world as a copywriter. That would have three benefits...

    Mastering the Upwork game with Copywriting

    A quick introduction and background: Around October 2018, I knew nothing about copywriting. I decided to go through and complete Lex' 15 day copywriting challenge/exercise thread. In fact, I was about on day 10/11 when I decided to get the balls to start sending in proposals to people on...
