Well hopefully everybody in the coffee room can find some positivity Smiley Happy I went back up to 16 connects so the magic is gone for now. I need to find a way back to 6 connects if I want that same feeling again. The feeling where you apply to one job, because you can already see it as a great fit. I hope no-one misunderstands my post and takes it as me bashing the connects system. Was just some advice for newbies. Positivity.

I think the point, from more than one successful freelancer, was they don't give it a second thought because they know their business well enough to not fret about connects.

I have 22 connects leftover from last year, before they made us pay for them. I like the part-time work that rolls in via invites every few months when the algorithm fairy blesses me.

And honestly, I kinda just enjoy hoarding them like a dragon.

Use them up. They are no use on the shelf. I have a membersip where I can buy more. Invest a little, get a lot back

So, how does it make you feel looking at the 6 solitary finite connects you have left?

Are you the one that looks at them and goes "shhhhhh omg omg omg, this is so stressfull".

 

Or are you more of a "glass half full" person and look at them like they're the "golden goose"? the magical 6 connects you need to land your dream job?

 

I'm leaning towards "oh yeah <rubs hands>, these are special". Share Smiley Happy Would love to hear your thoughts on this subject.


For me, it is like winning a jackpot if I see an offer with it. I say , "So, finally it's time to sit back and relax till an invite is coming". Smiley Wink

Hahaha that is funny. So you're glad you're done with them. I had 98 connects and felt like I needed to write some proposals just to get rid of them. So, yeah..... I think I get what you mean.
