Thank you for giving me a chance to get some jobs that I would not have been able to do without this wonderful site. In the past few weeks I have reviewed a book, edited, researched, and am co-authoring another book, edited a spreadsheet for a leather goods company.

Also thank you for saving me from a mistake by informing me that a potential client had been removed from Upwork for violations before I agreed to work for them. It gave me some time to think it over and give them a polite but firm refusal. (There will be other ones.) I appreciate your protection.

I'm not Upwork.

But… raise your rate, Julie.

I don't have half your credentials and people are paying me over five dollars an hour. I started at $15/hr a year ago.

Okay I started low mostly because as a newbie, I didn't feel confident enough to ask for more. Now that I have had a few jobs, I have been wanting to do that myself. How do I do that?
