Hi I’m Hammad.
This is my story of becoming independent and financially stable and also providing jobs and opportunities for others.
Looking at the current job market one might feel depressed, however I never let it fade away my passions.
I have been interested in software and technology development since I was a boy. I also recall how I would search the internet for new trends in technology and how I’d try and learn as much as I could. This curiosity made me learn about fiver.
I felt as if freelancing is the way to unleash my creativity and learn more.
I started working 3 years ago on Fiverr while I was completing my university degree in software engineering.
I have been able to make good clientele as I provided valuable services(video animation). I have been blessed enough to utilize my entrepreneurship skills through this forum.
Soon after graduation I rented a workplace and started working there as I believed it to be more productive than working from home. This really helped in increasing the sales and doing work more efficiently. Soon I realized the need to hire people so the workload can be catered to.
Now I have established my own place of work and I feel empowered to extend my services further. I feel as if its a constantly growing field that can cater to all my learning needs and provide me sustainable career goals.
What freelancing taught me is that, Do your own thing, start your own business, create jobs and don’t beg the government for jobs.
I also believe in spreading what I have learned so I also started training some of my friends about the skills I had.
The first lesson was to learn that the ultimate goal was to provide the best services and money is just a matter of time.
I also helped them in setting up their profiles and now they are also earning money by working as freelancers.
Tips I have for others.
- Free time is always an opportunity to learn skills.
- You can learn everything online these days.
- Custom satisfaction is the most important thing. Don’t loose a customer over a few bucks.
Keep learning keep earning.
