Hi Katrina,

Our team will change the visibility shortly.
Freelancers profile will be set to private if they haven`t earned for the past 30 days. This will affect you only by not appearing in search results but clients will still be able to view your proposals.
If you would like to learn more about this check out this Help Article.

I think previously I was hired whilst my profile was private, so there is still a chance that even if you have a private profile, you will be successful. Just keep being very active, keep your hopes up, try every idea for a job, and you will be fine.


Recently I started sending text messages to myself containing "do this..." and "do that...", sometimes repeatedly with variation. I always include an emoji. It really motivates me to get more done.
