I have been working in the domestic translation market in China for more than 10 years. Due to my busy work or comfortable working environment, I have never thought of going to the foreign market, but recently I have a special desire to go to the foreign market to see what the outside world is like. I have contacted some global top platforms, especially Upwork, saw many top companies and talents in the world, and I am exciting and looking forward to. However, after a month, I was in a state of doubt, hesitation. I don't think I'm the only one in this situation. Let us rookies in similar states form a league, we help each other, common progress, together to overcome all kinds of problems and doubts, a word of encouragement to each other, "Come on!", is our motivation to move forward. Believe yourself, rookie doesn't mean low skill, but we just joined the platform, there are a lot of things we need to explore and familiar with, wait until we work together, will become an eagle from the rookie, spread wings to fly.

Hello!

I'm new to this platform but I've been a contractor before. I also have my own remote business in the Metaphysical space helping others with healing, closure and guidance. I'm a full time RVer and living in South Carolina at the moment. I'm hoping this platform can help me bring in some extra income while I travel with my husband and build my own business I'd love to get helpful tips and insights from others in similar situations. My corporate career spanned over 25 years in the pharmaceutical pricing space, so I'm also trying to reinvent myself in a new area. 

 

I'm looking forward to hearing from others on this platform. 

All the best!

As a fresher my experience at Upwork was horrible. ๐Ÿ˜”

At Upwork, I had 90 connections for proposal submissions, including 60 new account connections, and 30 rising talent connections. As a newbie, I invested around $20, from which I earned only $38. Out of which Upwork again took a cut of $6. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I know the $ amount here is very small. But it was too much for me as a newbie. I've tried different ways, and I've gone through the bidding. But could not reach the client. I was disappointed day after day. I can do the client's work, but I can't reach the client. So I can't get the job. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Among them, Upwork's new boosting system disappointed me more. I wasn't just relying on Upwork. I have also tried other marketplaces. At the end of the day, I was not successful in the marketplace. Sadly, I have only completed 2 jobs within the marketplace. I have done a lot of successful projects outside the marketplace, but this marketplace is not my companion. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I am not able to succeed despite trying again and again, new updates are making it more difficult for me.
I'm not blaming the marketplace here, I'm blaming myself. Because many people are working, except me.

Still, I am hopeful that one day I will be able to do something good in the marketplace. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€:male_sign: Be it now in its niche or any other niche. I love to work with new people.

Happy Freelancing. ๐Ÿค
