Got My First Upwork Payment in My Hands Today

I have had such a dry, dusty struggle trying to make money online. I toiled and toiled on two sites and made quite some bucks. Then I got a rude shock when I tried to withdraw my sweet earnings. 'Withdrawal Failed', said the system.... 50 times. Reason? Zambian Paypal accounts can't receive money. 

 

Then I came here, Upwork. I got my first job from my very first bid. Then another, and another, and on rolled the ball. But I still worried about getting that money into my hands. Well, today, I withdrew something through Skrill. They said I had to wait 2-5 days, but the money came after about 8 hours and it wasn't even butchered- it was almost intact. Man HappyMan Happy

 

The money I made wasn't much, but it said this system works. Now I can work whole-heartedly.

Amid all the moaning and groaning here (myself included), it's lifts my spirits to read this.

 

Yisambi, here's wishing you continued success!

 

Your profile packs a punch and your writing is great. Who were your inspirations?

Thank you so much, HB. Well, as far as writing online goes, I have quite a number of people I draw inspiration from. Once in a while, I come across an article that makes me pause for a second and get comfortable before I can continue reading it. Writers of such are the ones I have on my wall.

All I can say is that having read your profile I know who I'm getting some inspiration from ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

It brought it home to me how far I have got to go, and so much to learn about the writing game. But, at least I'm actually earning money doing something I love ๐Ÿ™‚

I can see from your profile that you have done some things I hope to do with my writing. I now know on whose door to knock for some advice.Smiley Happy Thank you.
