Looks like a good way to post something that might inspire others, so here goes nothing!



Almost exactly one year ago today, the tv show I was directing for a major Greek television network was put in a “forced hiatus” status.



Which of course was code for “cancelled”. Recession hit Greece pretty hard you see for the past 4 years, and I never thought it would be hard for me to land the next gig, since I had a steady stream of work for close to 12 years.



So I started experimenting online to come up with something that will help me pay the bills while I land the next job.



I don’t remember how I run into Fiverr, but the minute I did, I saw the potential.



I did a quick search in my niche, found what was missing and where my services would have an advantage, came up with a basic strategy, and I made $400 in the first month!



It wasn’t easy, as I had to learn how the marketplace works, and being a director I was definitely not used to having customers telling me how to do my work.



And after that first month it hit me: if I work more, I can make more. If I learn more, I can provide more. Why should high end video editing be expensive and provided by studio power houses, and not be available to the consumer directly?



Then and there I decided to focus, bring my A-game, study new techniques, and provide the best videos possible, at really affordable prices.



And what do you know? It worked!



I do work long hours, and every day has its ups and downs, but thanks to Fiverr I was able to slowly start paying a huge debt I had to the IRS, which really made me grasp the concept of how financial freedom is supposed to be!



I also took my girl to Paris to propose, and soon afterwards we got hitched in Vegas! Mostly on Fiverr funds! :slight_smile:



Never in my wildest dreams would I had imagined how the gig economy could really change my life!



I now work full-time on Fiverr, recently got promoted to TRS, and I have already planned out my 2014 strategy, along with some really cool new gigs and a few surprise features I’m hoping will change the way video production is seen on Fiverr. :slight_smile:



This was my first year on Fiverr.



Here’s to many more to come -hopefully!

A huge thank you to Max and Jay from Fiverr CS for doing outstanding work and always having my back, and all the TRS sellers that post here on the forum, I really learned a lot from you guys. (@oldbittygrandma, @madmoo, @anarchofighter, @bachas85, @OzzieUK, off the top of my head!)



Thank you Fiverr!

While my fiverr success story isn’t about harvesting a bijillion dollars (yet) selling writing gigs - I have been hugely successful in the client relationships that I have built. Not only am I getting a plethora of repeat orders, I am also getting awesome referrals by clients who trust me and that to me, ladies and gentleman, is my short and sweet success story!



Wishing every continued success!

This is bizarre. Why did this person post as if she’s a Fiverr representative?
