This is a good decision. Profiles and portfolios are enough to demonastrate any new freelancer talent and clients feedbacks are plus point for older freelancer.
Excellent decision. Hoping also quotas for independent freelancer will reset every 12 hours if iwas declined or unused. Just like odesk before. There are many opportunities on it. When qouta reach and freelancer does not win the job or earn. He needs to wait for a month to apply again.
