Not a question, but a motivation to all you freelancers out there!

 

Having trouble starting with Upwork? Don't let that stop you and go!

 

Having a tough time landing that first client? Don't give up, keep going!

 

Had a bad client experience? Don't dwell, move on!

 

Having a hard time finding more client? Don't stop, keep moving!

 

Don't think you have value? You do, keep moving and add more!

Thank you for those words Tommy.

 

I have joined UpWork about a month ago and I'm yet to land my first job here.

After going through your words, I checked myself and discovered more option. I realized that I had the option to take tests to prove my expertise. 

I took the relevant test and scored top 20%.

 

I don't know if it is going to help in demonstrating my expertise but I feel more positive now.

Awesome! Hey, if the test relevant maybe you should show it on your profile. You posting motivated me further and I hope others are too motivated.

Won my first job. It was supposed to be a one time job. But the client was satisfied with my work which resulted in an ongoing working relationship.

The contract is still running. We didn't create a new contract. The client creates monthly milestones to pay me via this contract.

So, I have been able to take that first leap. Yet to get any review or more jobs. But then again, I looked back to this post and got motivated.

UpWork is one of the greatest things on the Internet, especially for people who believe in the Global perspective of planet earth.
