Live Work; For Freelancers

While searching for new work at home opportunities, I came across Live Work. After looking it over, I decided to sign up and see what opportunities there were here. Basically, with Live Work, you first make your profile which includes work experience, education, skills, and a portfolio. This part can be a bit time consuming, but it is an important step to make sure you finish thoroughly. You can also list any and all types of freelance work that you are willing to do and how much you wish to be paid for it. You then have the opportunity to search through job listings and "apply" for the job. When you apply for a job, you are committing to doing the job if you are chosen. The client posting the job will look through the profiles of everyone who has applied and choose which ones they want to do the project. These projects can be anything from answering emails, to giving phone support. The jobs that are posted however, are not the only possibilities out there. If your profile catches the attention of a client, you may be asked personally to complete other projects with them, as well.

I've talked to a few people who have been very successful through Live Work and have received continuous work opportunities via clients on the website. Personally, I just really haven't had the time to commit to working on this right now. I am moving in a few weeks and my time has been spent packing, cleaning, painting, college work, and kids. Once I get moved, I will put more effort into Live Work as there seems to be some good opportunities here.

Do any of you have any experience with Live Work that you could share with us? Remember, it can be good or bad!
