Hello @mjensen415 thank you for sharing story of V.I.D. Eric Colburn. It’s quite an inspirational story considering number of business he runs at an young age.

Among 3 tips shared by Fiverr, the 3rd one is very essential (1 and 2 are as well), which says “Be open to trying new Gigs!”. You never know what you can get from who? I mean, sometimes, a new seller too can provide outstanding work despite not having many reviews at the beginning. It’s my personal experience that even as a new seller here on Fiverr earlier I got opportunities from V.I.D. and it was a five star experience in terms of design and communication.
