Smelly secrets of the 400K Upworkers

I know you’ve seen them.

The Upwork boo-roos on Twitter bragging about how they’ve made 400K or 5 or whatever it is. It’s kinda tacky, but whatevs… not gonna hate on them. But, it does beg the question…

What do they know?

That the Upwork dropouts (who plod around the internet dumping their stinky piles of “it’s a scam” on every YouTube video or blog post) don’t?

I can tell you.

It has to do with how you start.

The first few crucial months. Get a couple projects, do a good job and get quality reviews… and your Upwork will take off. Don’t get those projects OR fail to get good ratings and reviews…

Poof!

Your profile will get disappeared…

Like a govt. whistleblower in the back of a CIA van.

But, how do you compete when you’re new?

Ah yes!

Good question, young Jedi.

That is THE question.

And I also have that answer. I lay it out in all its buck-neked glory in the latest episode of the audio newsletter.

Listen how you preferith.

And, heed thy words carefully…

Later,

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.

John has a relaxed and engaging manner. His advice is solid and the explanations are well thought out.

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!
