Wow, time flies so fast! On August 23, 2015, it’s going to be my 7th year of working from home through Upwork (Formerly Odesk) . I wonder how I survived all these years working on my own without any company benefits :). With these 7 years, good memories I have with Upwork are worth sharing for !
ODESK MEET AND GREET
I was part of the first ever Odesk (now Upwork) Meet and Greet and was one of those who presented Odesk Experience. There were 70 contractors who volunteered and was fortunate enough to be selected as one of the presentors. Here is the highlight of my presentation:
” I would rather start my presentation with why I love Odesk very much ! It is because Odesk created a significant impact in my life. For 3 years, Odesk provided me benefits and has been an instrument of the following aspects:
Having a better income from which I was not able to make it working for 9 years in the corporate world as Fraud and Risk Analyst.
An opportunity to take care of my kids
The mindset of not just being an employee but an entrepreneur.
My client and I became friends. We have been working together for 2 years and 1 month now.
The Value of Sharing
It has given me an opportunity to be a channel of blessing for some people. The blessing did not end with me, it goes beyond to my relatives when I shared it with them. We are 1 big happy family in Odesk, my husband, my sister, cousins, my aunt and even my 57 years old mother had a chance to get a job.
It opened doors for my mother who knows nothing about computers but because of her interest she finally learned how to use a computer. I am truly blessed because I have a client who is very kind to give my mom a job.
The Value of Helping Other People
In my small little way, I was able to offer a “small” job for new Odesk members.
Odesk somehow helped me develop my writing skills. ? I track everything how Odesk contributed for me to have a better life at pinoywahmnewz.info
AND I WOULD LIKE TO END IT WITH : I LOVE ODESK BECAUSE IT VALUES PEOPLE !
It is a fact that working online will not give you stability but no worries at all because our security relies in GOD alone. The weapon that I live with to achieve success is through Living and walking LIFE together with GOD.
Faith in God
Thank you very much Odesk and may you continue to open doors of opportunity and make a big impact on someone’s life.

Working with Upwork has always been a blessing and it is worth sharing that Upwork created a big impact in my life. Thank you Upwork for this innovative way of working from home.
