Gotta find clients outside of fiverr via networking, and them ask them to go through fiverr and leave a review.

Keep in mind you have no reviews, and if you are from a western country you’re competing with those willing to work for far less than you. Sometimes you have to take a few jobs at virtually meaningless rates just to get the reviews flowing.

Hi All- no question, but just sharing a (potentially very obvious) tip that has been working for my anxiety: cutting back on drinking a lot.

My project has slowed down over the last few months and with the pandemic and everything it’s been easy to have a few drinks every night and then a few more on weekends. My anxiety went through the roof over that time period, in large part due to different life factors.

But after taking a week off from drinking at all, I’ve been in a much better headspaxe

Is this normal? We do our creative in house. We have a newish CMO. She briefed us on a new brand campaign and gave us a two week window to concept so she could put the work into testing. I just found out she also secretly briefed a bunch of external agencies on the same brief, but she gave them way more time. She didn’t want us to know about it but people here found out through friends at the agencies. I’m not from the agency world. Is this a normal way to treat your team? It feels shitty.

Can anyone speak to using Turo to rent a second vehicle? I live in Portland OR. Assuming that’s a decent market?

Not trying to get a full blown car rental business off the ground. Anyone had success passively renting a second vehicle in a market this size?
