Thanks for my newfound employment status, tonight on Upwork I made the transition from client, the one assigning the work, to freelancer, the one doing the work. For those unfamiliar, Upwork is a platform for matching work for hire professionals to available projects. I live-tweeted this #breakingnews event for you. Let’s tune in:
Dammit, #successmagazine made me join the YouEconomy. What’s the YouEconomy? Right now for me, it’s piecing enough stuff together to pay the mortgage. #Upwork, here I come.
When I wrote yesterday about SUCCESS magazine shutting down abruptly, I questioned whether I was too gracious offering to help shut things down after I learned they selected other people to do that for me. I felt embarassed I was so eager to help the company that just dumped me over the phone. Then an ex-boss piped up on a comment saying, “A gracious person always is” and as usual, he’s right.
When you’re a helpful person, you help. When you’re an organized person, you organize. When you’re a positive person, you help lift others.
