No, you’re not Russell Crow and you’re not saluting Caesar before you hack/get hacked to death another gladiator.
Or maybe you are, you might be trapped in a super-weird time vortex portal or whatever the kids call it these days.
It’s time to learn, I think. The tips on here are beyond useless. They’re stuff that your kindergarten kid picked up after their kindergarten teacher told them off for silly behavior like… you know, don’t eat too much jelly or you’ll get sick?
Some of the real lessons come elsewhere. It’s not “first, you must make a profile” (dafuq)…let me illustrate what I mean:
a) I was learning how to swim. I’m a pretty good swimmer (I am still alive, for example). But when I was 6-7, this kid was better. He was inching ahead of me. We were really, really close. So I grabbed his leg, pulled him under and swum to victory! (then the teacher pulled me out the pool, gave me a very sound bollocking about why I was wrong and I cried a lot). So, don’t pull people down ahead of you unfairly. You might win temporarily, but the big mean teacher is gonna catch you and you lose anyway.
b) I also almost drowned around this age. My family was on vacation. There was this awesome-looking waterslide. My parents said I was too young. I puffed up with pride at my swimming skills and insisted I was old enough (etc) to do it. So they let me. Oh, the slide was SO MUCH FUN! Then I hit the water and I panicked. Sure, I knew how to swim, but in that moment I was looking around, swallowing water, flapping, all the rest of it. I simply didn’t know wtf I was doing. Some guy picked me out and I fell crying by my parents as they half told me off for being a stupid kid, were half relieved because I wasn’t dead.
Some of you ARE NOT ready. You will be, one day. But before then, it’s wise to listen to people who’ve been there (I’m not talking about swimming anymore, hint) and have more experience. If you want Fiverr to work for you, you have to work a little more.
Even if you are experienced, you’re still learning a new system. The learning curve is (thankfully) briefer–but slow down.
Because if you’re not ready, you’re gonna get chewed and spat out. I do have an idea though, one that I might share with all of you if I can get it together–because I know that “market yourself on social media” is crap advice.
It’s not–but it is, because the natural next question is “uh, how?” Well… that’s another lesson. But for now, consider this.
And try not to drown. I can assure you that half-drowning isn’t pleasant. So, I know some see me as harsh on here, but I’m really only just your pissed off Mom when you come crying after you ignored all good advice…again.
You gladiator, you. But you’re not. And Fiverr is not an “opportunity”. It’s just a system.
