This month marks one year since I first got the acceptance email to be part of fiverr’s new exclusive program – fiverr PRO. I thought that it would be interesting to share my experience thus far with the community, in hopes that I can inspire others with my story.
I first heard of fiverr PRO in the summer of 2017 when I was browsing fiverr and suddenly fell on the promotional page detailing this new program, which at first glance seemed daunting. At this time, I was already a seller on fiverr but did not depend on it to find work. My primary job was working as a web developer for a web development and digital marketing company. Nonetheless, I decided to apply for the WordPress category as through my years of experience in web development, I was able to refine my skills and knowledge on this platform. Thinking nothing of it, months went by until I finally got the news – “Congratulations Doer, your application to Fiverr Pro has been approved!,” the email read. I couldn’t be more excited. I quickly began preparing my first fiverr PRO gig with the help of my success manager. What came afterwards was unexpected. My gig began to take off and I would soon find myself completing project after project. Just two months after beginning my journey with fiverr PRO, I had reached level 2, and recently had the honour of being selected as a Top Rated seller. What I learnt from my journey this past year is that when talent is recognized, the sky is the limit.
Since joining the program, I am now able to have a flexible work schedule and therefore have more time to enjoy the little things in life. Thank you to everyone at fiverr for creating a platform that recognizes talent ranging from different fields, to different ages, to different ethnicities and offering a platform where we can all excel in our particular discipline, whilst creating balance in our lives.
What I leave you with is a small motivational quote “Do what you love and success will follow. Passion is the fuel behind a successful career” – these are the words that I live by, and fiverr has shown me that when you love what you do and do what you love, success is right around the corner.
