Dafina has been really helpful and prompt in her coaching. I really enjoyed reading her emails and have made a lot of changes both in my profile and discovery calls. Happy to report that I've signed 3 new clients as a result. So, all in all it was a huge success! Thanks Dafina!
I am extremely satisfied with this coaching session. I received the answers to my questions and significant information that have enabled me to understand better how the Upwork platform is working. I was able to improve my profile and the way I write my proposals, but I also believe this coaching will have other long-term positive effects on my freelance work.
