In the few posts before this, I was building a simple eCommerce website for my friends http://www.hifridays.com. The website sells women clothing targeting the working class ladies in Singapore.
I started my own business, I wanted to shout “hurray!” but the time is not right yet. Currently, I am developing my own website using WordPress.org.
I went to Fiverr recently wanting to find some people to do some work for me but to my horror, I realized that my account has been blocked! I went to message Fiverr support and they gave a very vague and standard reply. I wished they can be more specific as to the reason for blocking the account.
To end this off, today is exactly one year after I left my 8 to 6 office job to explore this world as a freelancer and learning about starting a business. Not much to brag but I really learnt a lot.
It has been a busy two weeks as 2014 comes to an end as I tried to do some transcription in Scribie as well as complete some stuffs for the start-up company that I am helping with. I would be travelling for the whole of the coming week so there is a lot to prepare in advance.
I haven’t forgot about the post on the transcription website, Scribie. It will be slightly delayed as I am testing out the website as a reviewer.
Most of the time I am helping out with the start-up company, Fotograft. I was designing and redesigning the logo and cover photo used at Facebook page and Twitter for Christmas and the New Year. Oh and also the post on the day of celebration themselves. The design for Christmas logo, cover page and the celebration post can still be viewed on Facebook. It made me realise that the Photoshop and Illustrator skills that I learnt through the contests at Freelancer.com can help me to complete a lot of other tasks. Do keep a lookout for the designs I do to welcome in 2015! Please provide feedback on the design on how I can improve in future. 🙂
I am very happy that I am busy with the start-up company, Fotograft, because it means that the company is growing. However, the dilemma is that I will have less time for freelancing to earn money since I am helping out with the start-up company FOC. I guess it is time to test my limits and my efficiency.
Let’s toast to thank 2014 for the opportunities it provided and to a more efficient 2015 where I could do my best in both freelancing and in Fotograft!
Hello! I thought it would be proper for my first post to introduce myself as well as my intention on starting this account.
– I am from Singapore.
– I turned 25 years old last month.
– I quitted my office job two weeks ago and started out as a full time work-from-home freelancer so as to help out with my boyfriend’s startup.
– I love technology.
There is only one intention right now while I am writing this post and that is, to document down the process of starting out as a freelancer, the challenges I face, as well as the journey through this less explored path (at least from where I am).
Nice to meet all of you! I hope the above is enough to get us started here and hope my experience will help some of you out there! 😀
