Sweeter Achievement

Hardship to a Sweeter Achievement

Sweeter Achievement

I took up a two-week job in order to supplement my income from freelancing as it wasn’t sufficient to cover my expenses. I got an average of one order ($4) per week at Fiverr and so I thought I could take up additional job.  Two days ago, however, I received two orders (Admin & Excel) on the same day, to be delivered within 24 hours.

I usually research on the topic of interest prior to working on the required job so I know I’m running against time.  I did research while commuting to and from my temporary job. Then started working on the earlier order (yellow pages search) after my family dinner around 8P.M. I completed the first order around 10.30P.M. even though the buyer only bought a one hour work because I did some filtering to eliminate duplicated entries extracted from yellow pages and search for required details that wasn’t on yellow pages.

After a shower and some food, I began working on the second order (Excel for Mortgage Amortization) and completed it around 2A.M. It took longer then usual as it was an area I wasn’t very familiar with and had taken extra care to make sure I did not screw up the formulas. Initially I wasn’t sure if the pie chart that was requested is what the customer wanted but I received positive review right after I sent the Excel to the customer! I am glad I had met his expectations! I hope the customer for the first order will be satisfied too.

Even though I had to wake up at 6A.M. the next day, seeing satisfied customers make it all worthwhile. Through hardship, the achievement will be sweeter. 🙂

Tips from Customers

Tips from Fiverr

One of the happy moments of freelancing through the Fiverr platform is when you received tips from buyers when you least expected it.

Recently I received tips from two Fiverr orders and am really elated. It just motivates me to work even harder and provide even greater service to my customers.

Thank you so much to my customers and customers to-be!
