This is a small achievement and how do I start on a journey as a FREELANCER.
For newbie out there and thinking about how to start a work from home without any experience.
First I did is searching, What is a Freelancer? I found a community wherein you can learn what are you seeking just to know the work from home is. In these communities, you can learn a lot, from cover letter, how to answer in the interview, and how to make a portfolio. I assured you, you are on the right track if you follow them and take action immediately.
Second, be resourceful, determination, and confidence is the key. Take FREE Courses, Read Blogs, Watching YouTube Tutorials, attending FREE Webinars, all resources that you know, and could help you to answer all your questions.
Those things I did, and pursue being a freelancer, especially when I watched JASSUCCESS, all the stories are the inspiration for the newbie like me.
I started being serious and focus on March 2020, the pandemic is good timing for me, a lot of time to watch, read, and attend webinars, questions are all answered after.
Create an Upwork profile, and got approved, start applying and maximize the free connects I have.
Then one day afternoon on May 29, 2020, I have a notification from Upwork from the message box, a Client responds my application for VA NEEDED TO PERFORM REPETITIVE TASKS tells if I am interested in the job.
Mix emotion I felt that time, HAPPY because all steps and moves I made are correct and got verified my Upwork profile, Client caught attention my Cover Letter. NERVOUS from scratch, first client and first job, I don’t know what to do to perform the assignment given. EXCITED my freelancing journey started. (Sleepless Night) 😀
How the project it is, regardless of the amount of salary, the important is YOU GOT THE FIRST CLIENT is a BIG achievement for Newbie.
TIP: In submitting a proposal, make sure, do a little prayer, guidance from above is very important.
June 4, 2020, I enrolled at the VA Bootcamp to enhance my knowledge in freelancing and to know more other skills.
IF I DID ALL THINGS, YOU ALSO CAN DO.
