Thank you, thanks a lot for this great online opportunity in grabbing work or jobs. This really gives anyone a chance to work at home yet still be productive. Kudos!
If it wasn't for Elance (now Upwork), I'd be in a crummy job that I hate. Now, I get to go to the gym when I want, work the hours I feel the most productive, and feel the sense of accomplishment of completing gigs. Totally stoked to start Upwork.
Cannot agree more, Alexander.
I am able to work from the comfort of my home, no more long hours spent on travelling to office, I get paid a LOT more than my office job.
And the most important of them all; my mother suffered brain aneurysm in 2011 for which she was operated upon and since then she is undergoing physiotherapy and still regaining her strength and cognitive skills. My job with Upwork allows me to stay at home and look after her and any emergencies, which would have been impossible with an office job.
Huge THANK YOU to oDesk/ Upwork
