ON FREELANCING:

Why did you decide to be a freelancer?

Freelancing exposes me to a bigger market, in just one platform! This is very convenient for me.

What are the things that make you happy as a freelancer?

Freelancer.com’s Milestone Payment is an excellent way of knowing if an employer or freelancer is serious, if they’re willing to use it. The terms and conditions help in proving if a freelancer has worked for an employer well. Lastly, I like the independence it gives me, with flexible working hours all year-round!

ON WORK ETHICS:

What’s your strategy in winning a bid for a project?

I bid only on projects that I am confident that I will be able to complete. As much as possible, I reply to all messages from clients as soon as possible, and I try to accommodate various types of employers by applying flexible working rates and hours.

What are the tools that you use at work that helps you finish a project or increase productivity?

I use several tools, including SharpReader, which informs me as soon as a new project is posted.

ON INSPIRATION:

Where do you get inspiration?

I get inspired thinking of how I started freelancing. My cousin’s friend used to work on Freelancer.com a couple of years back, and he recommended it to me. I tried it out, and after a few years, I left my job and have freelanced full-time!

If you could describe your freelancing experience in one word, what would it be?

Unbelievable!
