Opening up Upwork this morning felt like winning the lottery

You’ve got a decision to make.

What kind of person are you going to be? 

Person A:​​​​​​​

2019-01-31_0721
Terry on YouTube

Or person B:

2019-01-31_0722
Miro on Facebook

I can tell you who’s going to get further in life. Who’s going to have more success as a freelancer. Who’s going to actually create the life they imagine for themselves. The funny thing about this is if you look at Miro… 

He very easily could’ve devolved into the same piss-poor attitude as Terry. He tried Upwork. And, his first attempt didn’t work out. 

He could have very easily just given up and became a troll who hunted down every Upwork video he could find so he could leave a negative comment.

And, crack snarky jokes that make him feel better about himself… 

But, do nothing to help him actually get anywhere in life. 

Like Terry. 

But, instead, he chose to keep fighting. 

Learn. 

Be humble. 

And, it led to him to get his first break. From there, it’s about doing good work, being honest, reliable, etc. I don’t know what’ll happen… But, I have a hunch that Miro’s attitude will carry him through. 

Anyway, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

I’m not bullsh!@#ing you.

I know this stuff works, because I was in exactly the same spot as Miro. And, exactly the same thing happened to me.  You make the changes I show you and things just start happening. 

I’ve seen it over and over and over gain with my students. 

Anyway, if you wanna learn what the trick is, I teach it to you in my Freelancing on Upwork course. You can start taking the course on my free tutorial site at: https://johnsfreetuts.com/upwork101

Later,

John

  1. LOL… Hi John,
    I thought you were in the military at some point in your career….
    The reason I bring it up is because the one thing I took away from serving with such a diverse group of people is that the old saying “You can’t fix stupid” is more often times true than not. Some people you just can’t help.. they are like a true drug addict, they will never really get a positive result or change until they realize they are the source of their problem and really want to change.

    1. 11 years. And yeah, it’s weird sometimes. I had such a “can-do” mentality drummed into my head. It’s hard when I deal with people who “can’t” everything. Like oil and water.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.
