One year ago, talented writer and social media professional Andrea Reggio from Caracas, Venezuela longed to earn her earnings from home. Having worked in finance, she imagined of a more comfortable way of life where she could work in her own terms. “I was searching on the Internet about how to earn money as a writer, and then I found it!” Andrea recalled how she discovered Freelancer.com.
Wanting to keep all her options open, 25-year-old Andrea continued to discover multiple job platform choices, but she discovered that Freelancer.com provided her the biggest business opportunities. “Freelancer.com had the best offers and gave me the best results,” she said simply. She now works via Freelancer.com full-time.
Andrea studied English for six years and improved her Spanish – English bilingual writing capabilities, which both enabled her to have a great head beginning in securing a job. However, she is enthusiastic to encourage freelancers with various capabilities that finding work on Freelancer.com is possible. “If you bid with a smart, well-written message, the employer won’t mind if you don’t have a huge reputation,” she said, urging new users not to give up.
As Andrea worked hard to establish a good reputation for herself, her success began to snowball.
“I now get an average of one project for every three to four bids,” she explained, “So it’s really about accumulating good reviews.”
Andrea has definitely experienced many unforgettable experiences in her freelancing profession. She has an e-book published on the web, has worked on scripts for video games, and has been employed to write for a blog with over a million readers every month. “I used to read this blog before writing for them!” Andrea said, “So I was very excited when I got the project.”
Despite the financial and governmental instability in her country, Andrea has made a success of herself and her business, and she cannot recommend Freelancer enough. “I’m not saying this because I heard about it, or read about it somewhere,” she said, “It is my personal success story.”
Andrea loves theater and produces videos for her own YouTube channel, where she provides guidance to other individuals who consider the path of freelancing. She explains: “I love to communicate with others and show them all the possibilities in the world if you just give yourself the chance to look for them.”
An animal lover, Andrea also works for a dog shelter in her local city and donates part of her Freelancer earnings to animals in need. Though the shelter is still small, she is motivated by the development and momentum the project is accumulating. “It’s starting to make a difference and the shelter was just recently featured on the local news,” she explained.
From the beginning of her freelancing journey, Andrea has had big aspirations about where she desires it to take her. Her long term objective is to take a trip to Japan. She has been mastering the language in her excess time and has started saving money. And she is excited about her plans coming to realization. “With places like Freelancer.com you really can make your dreams a reality,” she mentioned.
