Hello everyone,

My name is John Iwuozor, a 20-year-old graduate of mathematics and tech content writer.

I am about to share with you my story of how I moved from earning 20k monthly as a factory worker to earning close to 500k all within three months this year. It's an interesting story which lots of people find inspiring and motivating including me smiley

So where do I start? Aaah Yes! Last year!

In simple words, Last year was hell for me. Let me explain....Early last year, I was working at a factory, working my ass off from 8-6 and earning a peanut salary of 20k.

But what did I know then? I was this young lad new to working and I believed that I had to start earning very little before moving to higher levels..lol.

Fast forward, Covid happened and we were all asked to go home for some time and await further instructions. Funny thing is that I never got called back.

During my stay at home, I tried to make myself useful by learning web development, participating in a data science internship and writing about chess. This period was not fun at all. I was totally broke to the point that I depended on my parents and siblings for money for data subscription. Some days, I would just cry alone in my room and beg God to give me a job.

And God heard me, How? Just follow me. My big bro in a bid to help my situation purchased a course for me to learn freelancing skills and start making money on the internet.

December, January gat me reading and learning skills in preparation for Upwork. In February, I went for it!

Immediately started getting gigs on Upwork and earning in dollars. My biggest gig was writing a 1,500 word article for $300....yeah, you heard me right....that's like 120k for one article! My parents now see me as a responsible child..lol.

As at now, I have made over $1k from Upwork and I now coach and help people in navigating the platform and getting jobs.

Check the screenshot below;

Don't believe me, you don't have to. Just search my name on Upwork and see the results.

You may ask "Why the story?", the thing is that it pains me when I see lots of talented people complaining and getting underpaid in their jobs when they can be earning much more online.

The truth is that digital skills pay much more than your normal 9-5. Did I even tell you of the freedom you have as a freelancer, you can literally be working on your bed for two days and earn someone else monthly salary.

Skills like copywriting, graphic design, web development, virtual assistants, coding, social media management e.t.c can give you that financial freedom you are seeking. All you need to do is to offer these services on Upwork and get paid in mad $$$.

Freelancing is the new gold and it's here to stay.

If you have questions, feel free to ask. I would do my best to help anyone going through the freelancing path.

Some of the reasons why people fail to get gigs on Upwork is because they don't have optimized profiles and can't come up with engaging proposals.

Your profile says a lot. When I talk about the profile, I mean your Bio, Portfolio, Skills and Experiences. Clients watch out for these stuff a lot.

Another important thing is your proposals.

Most of the times, your proposal determine whether you get the job or not. A well-written proposal would always attract further response from the client. Most people err in this category because they write proposals like formal letters.

Most of the times, the client is not interested in your "diligence to work and dedication", they want to know whether you can deliver the job. A good proposal would answer the need of the client.

It's essential you possess the necessary skills else you would just be wasting your time looking for a gig on Upwork.

I get lots of messages from people who want to start earning online. The problem is that they have no good skills to offer. That's why even if you have 5 upwork accounts, it would be likely impossible to get one good gig because of bad bios, unclear headlines and empty portfolios.

Freelancing is not a get-rich quick scheme. You need to work hard to make your money.

Do you even know that you can get high-paying clients on LinkedIn and then transfer them to Upwork?

This is 2021.

A lot of things are undergoing digital transformation.

This pandemic has shown that remote work is highly possible and the truth is that we are going to be seeing a huge increase in freelance work in the next few years.

Skills like copywriting, data science & analytics, digital/affliate marketing, coding, graphic designing would all be in high demand.

The question is "which one have you learnt?"

Or are you still depending on his country for a good job?

Learning and mastering a high paying skill is enough. Freelancing can guarantee that "soft life" and financial freedom you have been seeking.

Re: How I Made Over 400k As An Upwork Freelancer Within 3 Months With Just My Phone! by Johnne32(m): 6:05pm On Jul 11, 2021
In freelancing, you need a spirit of consistency and optimism.

The goal is be unfazed by rejections, ugly reviews, deteriorating comments...just name it.

It's not so simple in real life, but try to adopt the mentality of "I'm going to keep pushing, no matter what".

Your future self will thank you.
