The only motivation I ever needed was making money and getting paid. That’s it. St. Level’s does not motivate me, instead it scares me. I deleted 3 gigs to avoid bad reviews. What I refer to as “subjective gigs.”
For example, I no longer write LInkedIn Summaries, I decided it’s not worth it. I was selling a simple summary of the buyer’s LinkedIn Account. “Hannibal Lector is an award-winning psychiatrist with a passion for nouveaux cuisine and fine living…, etc.” About 250 to 500 words of that. Then I started getting bad reviews because buyers don’t read the gig description and are expecting a “creative summary.”
Before St. Level’s, I didn’t care. I would argue with buyers, I would try to find ways to lower my refund rates. Now I can’t afford to have any problem gigs. See? Now it’s not about making money, it’s about 4.8, 90%. If it means making less money to meet those standards, that’s the prize we pay.
Motivating? I don’t think so.
