The real question is - what happens when the client asks you to do something you don't know how to do?
Do you quit because SinisterLex wasn't there with the answers?
Or do you find a way?
Having worked on both sides of the fence I haven't had any issue using the same profile. Nobody knows or cares that you're a client when they're looking to hire you as a freelancer. They only see what's right in front of them and most of the time they don't even see that.SinisterLex - my current profile on Upwork has a few projects as a client. I did one project where I paid a developer 15k. What is your thoughts on using this same profile as a freelancer? I got 5 star feedback as a client so no problems there.
Thanks Fox,Sinister Lex have you ever considered representing people/teams on Upwork who have a great skill set but can't sell themselves effectively? Not in copy but in app development, websites, etc. You would find them the work and then take you slice of the pie.
I can't wait to see what happens with you over the next year. Easy to see you are going to kill it. The content here is amazing and your work ethic is insane - new great posts every few hours.
Haha. Wtf?!? Is that what music.ly is about then?Gary Vee's all for music.ly right now (15 second lip-syncing videos) so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Not really sure how I'll use it yet, but there's definitely potential.
At first I hated it. I really really hated the idea of this stupid app.
But I swear it grows on you like crazy and soon you're just scrolling and scrolling.
So here's my first music.ly. Wanted to start off strong. I'm sure some of you will figure it out.
@Andy Black YouTube is the past. Better get with the times haha
It's not just for lip-syncing, but for 15 second videos.Haha. Wtf?!? Is that what music.ly is about then?
Hmmm. The hulk? He-man? I think I'm way too old...
You put a smile on my face anyway.
