I would but beyond some useless credit card system knowledge I have no skills


I did web development (still doing)
Was hard initially when I started, clients wanted quality for cheap.
Now at level 2, total savings crossed $20k


1yr, but first 8months I hardly earned $3k

I’ve used Fiverr a couple times. Once to create a cinematic intro for a video I was creating. Another time for a logo animation. I was happy with both outcomes. I’ve never offered my own services on there though if that’s what you’re asking.

I was gonna say, did you get approval from daddEY lol

Hi all!

My fiancé & I are both looking to do a destination wedding as we want to keep our costs down since we’re moving into a new home soon. We were thinking of getting married sometime after Easter of 2023 & have been looking into Cancun but are open to anywhere with an all-inclusive resort that has good food + nice beach. It would be a Hindu ceremony but normal style reception for approximately 80-100 guests and were hoping to keep it at 10-15K.

Any help is appreciated!
