In 2003 I passed my SSC exam from Zilla School Barisal, then in 2005 I did Diploma in Business Studies from Govt Commercial Institute, then in 2010 I did graduation in Economics from Govt BM College under National University and in 2011 I completed my Post Graduate. Then I did contract work in 2/3 companies till December 2014, finally on 22.01.2015 I joined AB Bank as Trainee Officer in General Banking Department. Then I continued working under General Banking for 5 years in various parts, I worked in Internal Audit Department of Head Office DICC (Internal Control and Compliance Department) for the last 3 years (2020-2023). I resigned from AB Bank on 01.03.2023 and my last working day was 31.03.2023. I was determined from the time I joined the service. In fact, the real reason for my resignation was that the nature of the job conflicted with my religion. This is the essence of my interview, thank you very much, stay well inshaAllah.

Hello, my name is Carlota.
I am from Venezuela. I specialized in Customer Service. I have an open-minded and willing to learn and take on new challenges.
I believe that sharing experiences enriches people's vision and allows us to discover different perspectives and ways of seeing the world.
Listening to the testimonies of great mentors and learning about their beginnings and everything they have achieved with perseverance, discipline, and vision inspires me to believe that nothing is impossible and that the limits are in our minds, so I think it is necessary to create spaces where we can train our minds to learn new ways of seeing the world.

Hey everyone! My name is Karen De Mesa, a Certified Bookkeeper, and Business Finance Manager from the Philippines. I am looking forward to a prosperous and harmonious future with all of you.

I have fifteen years of experience in the corporate world, including Retail Banking, Treasury, and General Accounting. Since 2017, I have been providing exceptional Bookkeeping and Tax Compliance services to the Rental Property industry. Now, I am excited to announce that I am expanding my horizons and offering my expertise to other service-based industries. I am committed to helping businesses gain financial clarity and take their operations to new heights. I am a big proponent of cloud-based accounting software, and I highly recommend cloud-based accounting software to all my clients.  As much as success stories are inspiring, I hope to learn about your struggles in the freelancing space too. For it is from our mistakes that we become wiser and improve our services for our clients. Freelancing is tough, it has its ups and downs. This is not for everybody. I have learned that the freelancing mindset is very much different from an employee mindset. I am still learning and having a lot of growing pains as I venture into freelancing. But what keeps me going are the kind words and support that I get from fellow freelancers who have struggled in the beginning and are now reaping the fruits of their hard work. They have taught me the virtue of paying it forward. So, I look forward to being in the position of being able to pay it forward and continue the cycle of blessing others.



Karen De Mesa, MICB

Hi Karen, your piece inspires me alot .....

Hoping to learn from my struggles on this freelancing space got me thinking.... Sure you're a great person I will love to learn and blend with...


I roll up to Upwork few months while I started learning the freelancing on Fivver which in my mind was the bigining of life...smiles...


Guess you can relate that feeling of getting your first job done successfully and completed...it's heavenly yah?..


So I felt, yet I wasn't too smart to know every field has it's downs aswell... For no stated reason, my account got deactivated on FIVVER... lol... Have to try again ...after much neglected review I have to move on....then the new game begins ....😊


Upwork 👐


Just completed a work with my first  client here successfully month ago and ever since haven't had any offer ...


My struggle then is, Why is it that all about 20 quality written proposals I sent ain't considered? Not even those I boosted...But offers sent directly by client works better?...


And how can a startup available freelancer like me cope with such job scarsity even at this space?


And how did you'll navigate your ways through 👐...


I am Open to everyone feedback and indept discussion :white_heavy_check_mark: 


Once again, thanks for having you'll here 🥰

Hi everyone,  

I'm Katie, well to tell a lil about me, I'm a 39 year old single mother of 5 very beautiful teenaged girls. We are in the process of starting over which is very challenging. I have been trying to change careers but some of my past experience has been warehouse unloading and loading inventory. I've been Forklift certified for 3 years. I've tried cleaning vacation rental property, which I was spending more on gas than I was making. I thought of and played a lul on my own business but I have been scared of failure. I have had this account and came across a email yesterday and here we are.

I'm open to see where this takes me......

Hi Karen, 


That,s encouraging. We are in the same profession and have worked in the similar industry. Am new here, it is my first time as a freelancer. Patiently, waiting for my first client.
