Most experienced freelancers will likely tell you not to rely on freelancing marketplaces to find work.

It’s good advice because those sites, like UpWork, pressure you to compete with other freelancers and lower your rates to win jobs.

But, the truth is, we all have to start somewhere and the chances are even the most experienced freelancers have used a freelancing site at some point in their career to score a project or two.

The first freelancing site I used was Elance (now UpWork). I didn’t get many jobs on this platform, but I used it to connect with clients and build long-term partnerships. At the time, there wasn’t too much competition on Elance so landing a job was easier than it is today.

Trying to provide for yourself, your family, and make money while being disabled can be tough. I understand this struggle better than anyone.

A few years ago, my mom was in an accident. While crossing the road, a bus literally ran over her. After going through several surgeries she survived but it left her disabled. She couldn’t walk or even stand.

My mom lived and worked in the UK. She provided for herself and our family here in Sri Lanka. Her accident affected all of our family.
