It was my junior year of high school.
I remember it vividly. The moment everything switched. Up to that point, I was the class mule. The butt of every joke. Picked on relentlessly. Ugly, poor, stupid. Whatever they could think up… I got attacked with it.
For over 10 years of my life.
After awhile, you start to believe it.
You start to believe something is wrong with YOU.
And, there’s nothing you can do to change it.
Then, I grew three inches and put on 30 pounds of muscle in one summer (with a lot of hard work in the weight room, mind you). That next football season, I had a breakout year and became the “star” of the team.
And, suddenly everybody was my new best friend.
Kids who just a year before called me every name in the book…
Were suddenly terrified of me and kissing my a!@.
It was weird.
And, I never would’ve believed it was possible…
On the other side of it.
But, sure enough, it was.
Anyway, it’s immediately what I thought of when I read this from Lona:
“Awesome details of every aspect of your Upwork Profile. I got immediate results of connects from a client the first day i changed a few things applying the tips he gives. i suggest changing your profile as you go thru the course with him and not wait till you watch the whole thing.. step by step… ty for a great course.”
I get this all the time.
Freelancers who feel like that ugly, stupid me when they first give Upwork a try. No responses. No hires. No money. And, you can start to believe there’s something wrong with YOU.
And, that there’s nothing you can do to change it.
Then, they try what I teach in my Upwork 101 course…
And, it’s like they put on 30 pounds of client-getting muscle.
Suddenly, clients start responding. They’re excited to talk to you. They’re eager to hire you. You start getting work. You’re making money. And soon, you start thinking about raising your rates and how you expand.
And, it’s all just really weird.
Even as I’m writing this, I know it sounds ridiculous.
Like, “Yeah right!”
Hell, I wouldn’t even believe if it hadn’t happened to me.
It just doesn’t seem like that much changed.
A skeptic wouldn’t believe the small changes I suggest…
Would have that big of an impact.
But, it did for me.
It did for my little brother.
And, it has for student after student of mine…
Who send me messages just like Lona’s.
Anyway, you can choose to believe that or not, but you can actually learn everything I showed these people… for nothing. As a teacher on SkillShare, I can offer you an exclusive 2-month, no-cost trial.
You can take the course.
Learn everything I taught them.
Cancel any time before the 2 months is up.
And, you won’t pay a penny.
Why not at least see if it’ll work for you, too?
Anyway, I won’t browbeat you about it.
Up to you.
