Freelancer Spotlight is back! A big thanks to our partner, Payoneer, for hosting #MyPayoneerStory competition last month. We received a lot of interesting and inspiring freelancer stories and it was really hard to pick the winners. Rebecca Jacobs, Payoneer’s* Community Manager, personally helped in the process and we announced it live. Now, be inspired with one of our winner’s encouraging story.

As a freelancing advocate, I take interview opportunities seriously. I feel it’s my own little way of reaching out to someone who might be losing hope or struggling to make ends meet. If I can inspire just one reader, then I’ve done my job.
Sharing my latest interview in collaboration with Payoneer*. I talked about how I got started, what my normal work day is like, and some advice to fellow freelancers. Forward to a friend who might need a little career push.

You’ll often encounter the buzzword “UI/UX Design” online. If you or your client’s business is web-based or SaaS, you’ll most likely need the expertise of a User Interface/User Experience Designer.

In this week’s Freelancer Spotlight, we are privileged to have Vicente Latag Jr. discuss what it takes to be a freelance UI/UX Designer.
If you haven’t seen Mon Espiritu’s blog, well… you should. The first time I saw it, I sent him a random message saying I love his website. I’m a sucker for atypical blog designs and well-written articles combined. A little more research and I found out he used to be a journalist in giant media networks thus explaining his writing style. But he turned his back and decided to work as a full-time freelance online marketer and he’s going to tell us why. If you’re interested to get started in online marketing, make sure to follow his tips on this week’s Freelancer Spotlight.
