Speakers and their presentation topics:
Mónica Vale de Gato, Digital Marketing Strategist and Social Media Expert
Topic: Your time is your treasure. Build a happy and balanced life.
Your time is your treasure. It is tempting to have a lot of jobs, but it can lead to worst results and no time for you to enjoy life. Did you ever feel like this? What if I told you that there's a way to work less and live more?
Sometimes we want to make money and forget the reason why we decided to be freelancers. More time and freedom to enjoy life. So it is important to take a step back and really make the most of our lives in and outside work.
Muhammad Abdullah Khan, Full Stack Developer
Topic: Mature your resilience
From failure, we learn resiliency. It's hard to not learn how to build resilience after a failure, especially if you're determined to overcome failure. Resilience is an important life skill to build. And when you build (and learn) resilience, it helps you in other ways, too.
Resilience is important to keep yourself standing strong specially when you don't get customers after submitting several proposals which makes you demotivated about finding new customers or if you have a customer but the customer is difficult to handle.
Resilience applies to all aspects of our life outcome, and here at Upwork resilience importance for beginners is quite important.
Matiya Ndengi, Copywriter | Personal Development Coach
Topic: Overcoming limiting beliefs
We sometimes think we can't do certain things, Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't – you're right,” If we think we can't learn that relevant skill and don't even try we are going to remain on the same level in life. We need to begin daring to do the impossible, pursuing the improbable. Impossible others have put it can be rewritten as I’m possible so get ready to be inspired to soar higher than ever before. It helps us tap into our hidden potential and discover new talents and gifts.

In 2020 Monica was working as a Social Media Supervisor in a marketing agency and decided to quit her job to become a freelancer. After working for brands like Pepsi, Burger King, L'Oreal, Mary Kay, Mercedes, FOX...it was time to move on. This decision enabled her to have more quality time for herself which led her to new hobbies and experiences.
In 2022 Mónica debuts her first-time ever stand-up comedy solo. That got sold out in less than 1 hour. After 14 shows and music festival appearances, she is grateful for the decision she made in 2020. Time is precious and there's so much we can do with it as a freelancer.
