Hi Tara, thank you — always lovely to hear from a fellow Aussie in the UK! And a freelancer too. Definitely sounds like you were a bit more prepared than I was, haha! I hope it’s all going well for you in this tricky career path.

That is absolutely terrifying re: Upwork — the kind of behaviour I expect from them, if I’m honest, but still so chilling to hear. Definitely a blessing to find out sooner than later! Have you found other platforms to be similar, or avoided similar platforms since?
