Upwork was launched about ten years ago. It was started by a team of people that worked out of Silicon Valley that were close friends wanting to start a web project. So, they got together and started Upwork. They wanted to create a technology platform that would enable freelancers to get hired to complete projects posted by others.
Upwork has grown into a top website for freelancers all over the world. The site has become one of the most popular places for freelancing with over three thousand skills. The site has allowed freelancers to earn over one billion dollars in revenue.
Upwork has complied some quick tips on ways people can finally check off everything on their to do list. The first tip Upwork gives to us is to capture everything. It can get hard at times to juggle everything and remember everything that needs to be done. But it is vital to make sure you put everything down on your to do list. That way you will surely know what needs to be complete.
Second, Upwork points out how you need to keep everything in one single place. We are all guilty of making multiple lists and keeping them in multiple places. This can be very challenging when trying to complete everything when lists are scattered. So collect your mini lists and combine them into one giant list.
Third, focus on the priorities. Yes, lists are long and have so much on them. But please remember to keep your focus on the number one things that matter. This will cause for you to finally focus on what needs to be done first. Do the most important first, then work on what is second most important and lastly finish up with whatever is left.
Fourth, Upwork knows that a to do list can get stressful. But they remind all of us to just work on getting that to do list complete and to not get overwhelmed. It’s all about staying calm. By not getting stressed out and finally tackling your list you will result in a finished to do list.

Freedom Checks is an idea or term coined by one Mr. Matt Badiali and based on real investment strategies that are minting good cash for the serious investors. Badiali is technically promoting his Real Wealth Strategist advisory newsletter publications and came up with this new term to explain the goal of his product, giving investment tips to investors. An investor is required to put in money then get a specified return on it periodically, monthly or quarterly, usually through Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). Companies in the MLPs are publicly-traded limited partnerships that are concentrated in the gas and energy sectors. The companies have a caveat, they have to generate at least 90% of their revenues from the gas and energy sector either through, transportation, storage, processing, production or any other service provision activities that occur within this sector.
MLPs companies enjoy favorable tax rates meaning they give out much of their earnings, 90% of their revenues through dividend payouts, hence the Freedom Checks term comes in. an investor typically gets financial freedom from such companies as compared to others in non-gas and energy sectors that have higher tax rates. Most of the profits earned here end up in investors’ pockets, a return of between 5 to 9 percent range, rather than to the taxman, as they operate tax-free.
568 companies form the MLPs but only about five of them control resources worth over a billion dollars and guarantees good returns.
Freedom checks can be earned by anyone no matter their age, their current worth or salary they take home, so long as they position themselves to receive their checks by buying into the MLPs. The expected returns depend on the amount invested.
Less oil is being imported into the United States, hence the MLPs are expecting more revenues in the coming years, meaning the freedom checks will increase due to increased profits now and in the coming years. The checks are sent via mail or deposited with your investment broker. An investor does not have to pay taxes on the checks received, he/she is also free to sell his/her shares and be charged a lesser capital gains tax.
