Represent yourself. Everything you do matters and everything you do should be what and who you are.

I dislike a bunch of types of people. I make it my imperative not to work with the people who seem like those who I don't like.
Would not try to act differently through my proposals as that wouldn't work.


I'd just be sending a bunch of proposals, not getting any responses. I'd be going to the UpWork Community to complain that no one responds and I'm wasting my connects.


My tip is: be who you are.

Great! Thank you very much! I will be patient.

Do not communicate with anyone off Upwork without a contract in place. A lot of new freelancers do this and end up getting scammed. It's a TOS violation and almost always a scam. 

Thanks I see a lot of job posting by telegram and I got confused. Thanks!
