If I go back to Fiverr I don’t think I’ll offer writing services though. It was a great platform before 2020, and I did offer writing services then. However I’ve heard from other freelancers Fiverr has not been overly kind to sellers. It will be interesting to see what she says.

Hi Miriam, from what I learned Maya experienced all ups and downs on Fiverr. To feed her kids she only slept a few hours to get her projects done.

One mistake she made was to set the time to give feedback and finalize the client project too short. This meant she only slept a few hours to not miss a deadline or a new request.

Crazy.

Now she knows better.

With "not overly kind to sellers" do you mean the 10% cut?

Maya explains how you can apply to the Pro program too.

I'm also looking forward to our live session.

I need to figure out if we'll use Zoom this time...

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Krisitna

Oh now nice, Paul. Many thanks. This video isn't performing not so well as my others. Not sure why. But I'm looking forward to our live session with Maya. She's a really strong and tough woman. I think it's brave to go from five to 200 per story and even reject clients.

Thanks for the encouragement to keep going ❤️ I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Yes! Marketing is a tough activity! Selling is an art! One has to be accommodated, adjusted, analyzed in multi folds to learn and earn an experience as part of skill development is not an easy task. We have to involve, enjoy, love you and your work. Then only things will set right over a period of time. Nothing happens overnight as people think. Thinking is different than doing. Performance alone yields the best results. You are the key for everything. You have to balance everyday activities as mother, spouse, women, what not everything! It is difficult and hard. All the glitters are not gold. One has to determine and dedicate to sacrifice. Then only things will materialize. Maya has proved it! She is the trendsetter! Role model! Successful individual! Hard and Smart worker! Created her own path to follow by others. Nothing is impossible! Love yourself! Love your profession! Live in your profession! Believe! Belief gives everything! Do it consistently. Never stop in the middle. Never look back. Never degraded. Never compare with others. Instead compare yourself with your previous results. Try to improve. You are the best in this world. Winning mindset gives winning results. Create your own brand image. You are the brand ambassador of your own products. Have patience! Wait for opportunity.

Eggs Benedict and mimosas! A woman after my own heart. If I'm ever in Bulgaria I'll look Maya up :)

Very helpful, esp the part about Imposter Syndrome and not underselling yourself on Fiverr. I'm not there right now but I might go back some day. I have somewhat less Imposter Syndrome than I had before.

Fiverr's great. I used to sell personalised law of attraction plans on there.

I can't remember why I stopped. I think I was too busy at the time to offer the personalized stuff.
