Crystal Stannard

Freelance Entreprenuer and Coach

My name is Crystal Stannard aka the freelance supermom. I got this name because I started out freelancing when I was 18 and over the course of the last 10 years I have had full time jobs, 3 kids, and managed to get my Master’s Degree in IT Project Management. My mission is to teach people the things they need to know to succeed faster than I did.

I started off as a Cha Cha guide making like $20 a month. It was discouraging to say the least. But everyday I kept googling and googling until I came across Odesk, a freelance job site. I did the research, set up an account, and then nothing. Slowly over the course of the first 2 years of working on oDesk I fine tuned and tweaked every aspect of my profile, applications, prices, etc. Then the jobs started coming in, and not all of them were great. It took about 4 or 5 years for me to get to the place I wanted to be.
