Minnesota Musing: Freelance Work on Your Computer
Willingness to Put Forth Effort
Some people do their jobs at home. Their employer is connected to them through their computer. Some people do work for people they have never met. Their only contact is through some software that connects them to jobs that they complete and receive payment for.
I have looked into Freelance Work and have toyed with the idea of doing it. I have completed a few test applications through Mturk and have not had enough time to continue. Some people apparently spend much of their time completing tasks for others.
You must choose to be close to your computer and very, very active for much of your day.
Effort is key to freelancing. Meeting deadlines. Freelance means that you are available to expend your time and experience in meeting someone else's goals. You are there to offer a service.
Freelance is where you find it. You are freelance.
When to Start
Readiness to start.
Sometimes, you start in Freelance, only to discover that you are not ready. Or, you are ready, but do not know where to start.
Where is the key. Where do you find Freelance work?
In Freelance, you offer your services to complete someone else's goals. Their goals may, or may not be realistic.
Do your best. Try to be timely. Your effort is better than no effort at all. If not for your effort, their task may not occur or become accomplished. Do quality work. Complete your tasks in an efficient manner.
Do your task correctly.
I had no comprehension of how many opportunities were available until I googled Freelancing.
The keywords to enter into Google are:
Companies That Offer Home Employment
Is It All Hype?
I listened to their video for Master Writing Jobs. There was some counter that showed that there were 42 positions available. Then, the counter sped up to where there were 8 positions available.
I had to give them my name and email address. So, now I will apparently start receiving emails from them. Are they going to sell my email address to someone else? I don't know. I already have 14,000 emails to delete in my gmail account. It's not like I'll notice any more emails.
So. I'll have to get back to you if I ever have one on one contact with them.
