About This Class

Hello and welcome to ‘UpWork Freelancing: Your guide to finding remote freelance clients’.

UpWork is the world's largest freelance marketplace and for the last (almost) three years now, I’ve been using UpWork to find remote freelancing jobs that allow me to work from literally anywhere in the world.

You see, before I got started on UpWork, I used to rely quite a bit on personal networking to find my freelance clients but the great thing about using UpWork is that whether I’m working from the beach in Thailand or from an apartment in Brooklyn, New York, I can both find the work and perform the work from literally anywhere. All I need is a computer and a internet connection.

In fact, I’ve used UpWork extensively as one of my major tools in order to enable my current nomadic lifestyle which has seen me travel to over 21 countries in search of Wifi and adventure.

So, in this course I wanna take you through my story with UpWork but more importantly share with you a system that I’ve refined over the last 2 years to attract better clients and more money without the countless hours I used to spend sending out proposals to hundreds of clients.
