Can anyone tell me their experiences as a freelancer on pph please?

What skills have done you well ?

Are you professional in your field or do you cover a small variety of things?

Self taught?

Am asking as considering it as a sideline for some extra finance and as something to get my motivation going again grin

Thank you

I think pph and Upwork good when starting out as a freelancer just to help you build up a portfolio, especially if you are self taught. However, clients often only want to pay a pittance for work, moreso if you are a newbie. And the large associated fees and charges soon get disheartening.

What area are you thinking of freelancing in?

I did for a while and it was useful to get me into a freelance mindset, but it is really hard to get work on there these days. I did copywriting, but find it much better to look for work in my professional field.
