Today on the podcast, I am interviewing Abigail Schilling. 14 months ago, Abigail decided to make a big life change. She quit her job and hit the road in a 1966 Kit Companion vintage camper. Abigail is a serial side hustler — doing everything from creating custom wedding accessories, running a coffee subscription company from the road, hosting a podcast, and creating print on demand t-shirt designs. But her main side hustle is Upwork. On this website, Abigail has earned over $20,000 for her project management services. In this episode, she will share her secrets to winning at Upwork.
Abigail’s top Upwork tips:
- Make a killer profile.
- Create an employer account too.
- Decide what you want to do.
- Get the rising talent badge.
- Take skill tests.
- Use your credits and submit to jobs intentionally.
- Keep the fees in mind when setting your rates.
- Low ball for your first client.
- End and restart the job with long-term clients (Be sure to get a review!)
