Today I Became a Man

November 22, 2013. Mark it on your calendars, for today is the day I became a bona fide entrepeneur. Today is the day I actually earned money for my work.

Last night I received payment to start the initial work on a hand mirror design, my second job, which was exciting. But more exciting was logging in this morning and finding that my first client had both marked the job as complete and also released payment. Complete. My first job on Elance is done, and the client is happy.

And the second part of that may be much more important. For the first time today I was able to submit bids without being a complete newbie freelancer. I got full marks in my review, and I feel much more confident in placing bids. My first two clients will always have my gratitude for taking a risk on me, an inexperienced freelancer.

Alright, just a short post tonight. I had a late start today, and only got a full day in by working past ten in the evening, which should be time for me to spend con mi nin’ta. Buena noche.

Another cutaway. Want one of your own? Just $500 :-)

P.S. – A favorite quote from a great, though short-lived, television show, Everwood. “Anyone can get what they want. But knowing what you want — that’s what seperates the men from the boys.”
