About This Class

You know you're curious! How do people find consistent work from home as a freelancer? How do they differentiate between scams and legitimate work opportunities? Those are great questions, and one of many answers is simply Elance.com.

Elance is an online job board that combines project tracking tools with qualified service providers and an ever-growing pool of clients looking to hire someone to help with a project (either on a one-time basis or as an ongoing work contract). 

Clients have paid out over 1 BILLION dollars to countless freelancers and companies since Elance started - it is a proven site with literally thousands of new project listings posted each day, and you could be one of the next freelancers to land a job from their site!

I have worked on Elance on and off since 2010, and I have made over $100,000 while working 2-3 hours from home and managing 3 busy kiddos at the same time. I look forward to walking you through the basics of setting up your Elance profile - it is the first step toward finding freelance work online!

Her time spent working as a telecommuter via Elance netted close to $100,000 - all while only working a few hours per day from home.
