My name is Charles Allen. I am from the Philippines. I am only in my early 20’s.
I have been a tambay for 2 years before I started freelancing. I used to party almost every day and when at home I just played online games.
(Tambay is referred to a person who has nothing to do, or who is jobless or lazy – someone who does not make use of his/her time in sensible ways or on sensible things or does not make use of his/her time at all).
I decided to become a responsible person after meeting someone; thus, my freelancing career started.
I was a beginner too – don’t know anything how freelancing works. I just keep bidding and bidding every day and still not get any projects. Until one day, I saw this project that says it will help us, new freelancers, to become a better/pro freelancer and that’s where it all started.
I am a member of codinglogics group since May 26, 2019.
I have learned a lot in this group especially when it comes to the basics of freelancing which is very important – creating proposals, bidding techniques, how to talk with clients, when to open disputes, and many more.
I am still open for a lot of developments including creating websites which is the sole purpose of buying a domain and a hosting.
Since I’ve joined this group, I already got 11 projects and 3 of them are still ongoing up to now.
I am very thankful for Kris/codinglogics for everything that I learned since becoming a member.
I am still finding ways to earn and save a lot of money for our future.

Charles is one of those stories from ‘rags to riches’ in terms of being ‘no one’ to ‘someone that is applauded’. Even though he is in infant stages of freelancing, I find Charles a highly committed individual that is always eager to grab any opportunity that comes his way. To add, Charles is our top performer to date, but very humble and accepts criticism without any arguments which demonstrates his willingness to be humble and a positive person. I see Charles becoming a top freelancer in future and wish him the best and will extend my support and hope he improves as each day passes by!
