Hello am new to upwork..i need someone who can walk with in upwork 

Hi Mayur,

 

Thanks for your reply. For 2 months, I have been bidding for projects at high prices and low prices and no luck. Updated my profile by reading Upwork academy materials. I am disappointed as only spammy client messages I received twice, thought it was a real job opportunity and spent hours answering their questions, and waste of time they were frauds, and scams. I am not sure if I should proceed on this platform again. 

I am new to this platform and like you have bid for projects at high and low prices too. Unforunately, I have not found any luck at all. I am hoping that I may find that elusive project soon but I have also received client messages that are either a scam/pyramid scheme. I will give it a few more tries before I decide on whether to continue here or not. I have had huge respect for Upwork as it seems to be the go-to site for legit freelancing works, but it seems the scammers have stepped up their game as well. 

Yes help me please with the stuff.

 

I well joint in your project

Hi to you all,

 

I'm doing writing, copy and paste etc. Whatever might befall me and I can master, it, I will do. From South Africa but planning to come visit. With excitement and a lot of anticipation I joint this platform, jip to make money, but that is not the real reason, it is to grow on my knoledge, my skills, my ability just to name a few. I'm a old student (56) and new to a lot, but don't believe you can't teach a old dog new tricks, looking forward to the possibilities that will arise; patiently, they will come.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be in this group and platform.

Hello,

I'm a multidisciplinary artist based out of Pune, India. I'm an actor, voice actor, speech and drama coach and a musician. However I'm mostly looking for voiceover and voice acting gigs on UpWork.

One of the main learning I need to take from others here is how to build myself and my career as a freelancer on Upwork.

I take inspiration from a variety of things. While i have my favourite musicians and artists, my main source of inspiration comes from nature and anything to do with it.

I'm a freelance literary editor and I reside in Cape Town / South Africa. 

Hoping to expand my skills and meet like-minded people who I can also get inspiration and advice from who have been in this field longer than I have. 

 

In regards to inspiration - staying positive, creative and active with constant goals keep me moving. On top of that, hubby is a writer/director so he inspires me to grow in the artist field on all levels as I assist him with editing; copy-writing and conceptual writing and art ideas.
