I love to learn to become successful as a freelancer  and I will love to hear from others on how to attract first clients as a freelancer.


Listening to stories about life inspires me,my current project is making me to travel from one State to another.

Hey guys. I've just joined. I'm a UI Designer from London that specialises in Figma. I've been doing this for quite a while now, and by 'a while', I remember when websites were designed in photoshop and Macromedia Flash was all the rage (This should give you an indication of my age...40...it's 40 😁).


I joined Upwork to start building my own fate with my career and moving away from corporate ladder, freeing me to design the way I love to. I'm sure there are a few of you that this resonates with so would love to hear more of your experience and how you're making it work.


Anybody wants to say hello, please do...I love a good chat 😊

Hi! I'm Louise. I am a photographer from Sweden. I have worked alone with my photography career for over three years. I have photoshoots with people I know and then post the results on social media and I'd like to learn how to attract other clients and make my own brand bigger on social media.  I am looking for people that want to collaborate on doing photoshoots together.


Taking pictures is always something I have liked to do, ever since my dad bought me mig first little camera. In the beginning it was for fun but I've grown to love it more and more and now I really want to make it my business.

My inspiration is the work I do and the results I get. The feeling of getting that good picture or seeing other people appreciate my work, that’s the most exciting part of it.


Most of the times I photograph people so below I have attached a photo I personally like very much.

I need support Everyone.😊

Shefali, if you say you're a writer, you can't use ChatGPT to generate the description on your profile with grammar mistakes. 

If you want to succeed as a freelancer, you need to master a skill and become a specialist in a field you're providing services in. 

Also go through the Academy, because you're a perfect profile for scammers.


Good luck!
