Started around last year.Thanks! My concern is these changes. I'm still working through the 15 day forum and some other materials.
Still need to get in some practice before I go on upwork. In the meantime I'm intermittently looking at the jobs being posted. The potential earnings keep me excited, and indeed I have noticed jobs I feel quite confident I can handle, and there are others that make me go 'wtf?'. Lol.
Thanks alot for your response and your willingness to address my fears.
If I can help enough people to merit $1k a month, I'd be happy. That can support my needs while I work on my real fastlane idea.
How long have you started on upwork and what has your experience been like?
Earned some bucks, but progress stalled because I got pulled in by misplanned university work and bad influences.
So I restarted a month ago, knowing better, and I'm on track to hit the thousand-buck mark soon.
For clients, I've met the following:
1. Low-life scammers who steal your work or pay peanuts. They are the ones to avoid.
2. Clients who don't know much about the job they want to get done, but need to get done.
You can use even your simple, fundamental knowledge to provide value to them.
You can act like a consultant of sorts and choose not to charge them for it.
3. Clients who are actually actively looking for freelancers to train up and rope in as full-time folks.
These clients mostly already know a lot about the job and its field, and can tell you a thing or two that you might not know!
For instance, I might find myself working with a marketing manager who knows his stuff on email copy.
Pretty good if you want to get right into how a regular firm does its SOP and management processes without having to climb to corporate ladder. But expect to commit some time and effort, which may restrict you from other gigs or Fastlane stuff.
