I do freelancing work through Upwork and bring home a pretty good paycheck. You get to choose and apply for jobs that suit your writing skills or management skills and pick however much work you want to take on. You have to be patient, especially if you don't have a portfolio already built and you'll just have to build one through jobs that you get. For me, it took about a month to line up constant work and now I take home around $600 or more each week. You can also choose to do less or more depending on how busy your week is going to be as most of the contracts have due dates that end quick or within the same week. Its also a quick turnaround and there are a lot of protection methods that prevent clients from not paying you.
Ive been wondering about upwork. I am very new to the site. Im on as a priduct analyst and researcher,creative writing,photography. Im really reluctant in some ways because there are so many scams out there. Ive had one successful job thus far,received 5 stars,and i had a scammer,possibly 2 message me. I need to put some sample works together i suppose. Its nice to hear that some people are doing well. I would love to write about health and nutrition. I had one client back out 2 days after proposing a contract to do some amazon research because their client backed out. I had already done all the work,i was in the process of proofing it when i saw the message. She apologized at least. No payment though
