I tell you what, man.
It’s really starting to sink in that I’m getting old. I’m finding myself having less and less patience for the whining and belly-aching I see these days. I’m turning into a grumpy older coder grunting angrily at all the kids passing by.
Take this comment I just got:
“No, not worth it. Colossal waste of time as you are working for scammers, desperate saps, and cheapskates. Working on Upwork, ruins your freelancing career.”
Now, I know, I know…
I don’t need the lecture.
The thing to do is just ignore it.
But, it’s really annoying the hell outta me.
Like, what in the hell do you want?
Do you expect you’re going to just throw up a profile on Upwork and suddenly have clients tripping over themselves to hand you fistfuls of the benjamins? I mean… “it ruins your freelancing career”.
Honestly, if that’s your attitude…
Put the keyboard down.
And, never touch a computer again.
I know I shouldn’t get this annoyed… but damn.
Then… then… these are the same people who won’t take the time to listen to someone who will actually show them how to use a site like Upwork. Or, immediately yell “SCAM” at anyone offering some advice.
I saw this ad on Twitter the other day.
It was the most innocuous ad.
“I learned some freelance stuff. If you’re struggling, let me show you.”
I mean, it was the most tame thing you can imagine.
OMG, the replies.
Just got lampooned.
People screaming “SCAM!” every other tweet.
Like, how the hell do YOU know?
Anyway, it is what it is. No sense wasting my energy worrying about these people. Some people just can’t get out of their own way and couldn’t grab hold of success if it was handed to them on a silver platter.
If that’s NOT you, let me show you how Upwork works.
How to get clients from the very beginning.
And, how to methodically build your freelance business.
