Hey Andrea, I'm Al Nahian and I work in the field of web development. I'm a Full Stack PHP, Laravel, and Vue developer from Bangladesh.

As I'm very new to Upwork (my journey started yesterday, it's not even 24 hours yet), I'm hoping to learn the best practices, Upwork standards, how to win clients and other related interesting knowledge from other members.


The entire Laravel Community inspires me a lot about my work. But if I want to be more specific, there's a senior programmer I know who inspires and motivates me so much when needed. But the list goes on, and there are many energetic people that inspire me actually.


If you ask me about my immediate goal, then it is to be successful with Upwork! Haha, and that's why I'm here. Wish me luck!

Hi everyone!! My name is Alicia and I am a bookkeeper with over 15 years experience in finance; located in Chili, New York. Although I signed up with Upwork years ago, this is the first time I am trying to use it. I'm excited to learn how other small businesss bring on new clients and advertise themselves.  I worked in large corporations mainly in the Accounts Receivable department for over 10 years before working at Intuit QuickBooks as a live bookkeeper. Mainly working behind the scenes gave me the confidence to start my own bookkeeping company. Now to bring on the work!! That's the hardest part!! I'm inspired by all the small business owners I've met! Seeing all their hard work pay off when their business grows is amazing to me!!


Glad to meet everyone on here and hoping we can all assist and inspire ach other!
