    Does upworks really works? A colleague of mine recommended it for freelancing. I'll have to slog for free initially but does it work as source of regular income in long term?

      Upwork is going down on quality of clients and freelancers as well

      Upwork if you want to compete with Indians sweatshops charging $10 an hour. I really don’t recommend

    OP
    I think everyone is going off the topic. My question was about freelancing sources and approaches other than upwork.

      There’s also Freelancer and Craigslist but those likely have even worse potential clients.

      In reality this is hard because of a surplus of cheap overseas contracting companies. I suggest you build a marketing website for your company and emphasize the fact you’re made in USA, can appear for onsite meetings, etc.
