Elance_Cathy | Apr 18, 2008
Elance providers Debbie Feldstein and Bob D’Amico were recently featured on an ABC
News segment discussing their experience working on Elance.
Debbie Feldstein (username: Debbie1328) runs a creative writing business and has been
an Elance provider since 2000. Bob D’Amico (username: Millennium-Design), an
accomplished cartoonist with 30 years of experience in graphic design, has been on Elance

Great story! What I thought to be most interesting was the fact that these were far from your
typical “artsy” and/or “nerdy” freelancers (note that these terms do not represent a
stereotype as I am including myself in the generalization…lol). This clearly demonstrates
the wide scope of individuals that can benefit from Elance. Without insulting either of these
fine folks, the interviewer did point out that Debbie had been copywriting for 26 years,
coincidentally the same number of years I’ve been on planet earth ;-). It's no secret that
there is a stigma associated with this generation becoming overwhelmed when attempting
to manage a free email account, let alone nearly 200k in freelance transactions. So if this
isn’t a testament to the ease of use of the system, then their isn’t one…keep up the good
work Bob and Debbie!

That was a nice interview with Debbie and Bob. It's great to see Elancers on the news!
I think it would be really helpful to providers just getting started on Elance to maybe have
Debbie (for the Writers) and Bob give advice on what they did to build their businesses,
from what they think is most effective in terms of bidding, to how they organize their day (for
example, do they set aside certain hours to bid and respond to interviews - do they do
interviews on the phone or just through PMB, then do they set aside other hours to work on
awarded projects, etc)?
Congrats to both on their success freelancing.
