I streamline workloads by writing custom functions and formulas using Google Apps Script, making tedium automated! I have experience crafting automations for all google products (Sheets, Gmail, Drive, Docs to name a few). I have built Web Apps, third party API integrations, Google Chat Bots, texting programs and Add-ons. The possibilities with Google Apps Script are limitless. I have also written an assessment test to evaluate knowledge of Google Apps Script for TwoLink.
But let's talk about soft skills, eh? Often overlooked at the beginning of a professional relations ship, but obvious when lacking later on. When you work with a developer, their knowledge is just a small slice of the pie.
Here are some of my soft skills that I want to highlight (at risk of sounding braggy):
1. Smooth Communication
I value clear communication with my clients, and I believe it is one of those soft skills that I excel at. Honestly, there should be a score on Upwork for how good your internet connection is for video calls, and how well you communicate your thoughts so that others can understand!
When it comes to billing (tracking hours, pricing contracts), you don't have much of a choice: you must trust your subcontractor. It behooves you to go with someone worthy of that trust, who values self-honor, and prides themselves on making the right choices even when none are watching. I strive for honestly not just professionally, but in all area's of my life, and it's a wonderful feeling for me to be able to offer that to you.
Lastly, and possibly most importantly, I can't help but genuinely care for my clients. Every single one. When I work with you, you can rest absolutely, down-right assured that I become a sharer of your vision. The things that get you excited get me excited. Your wins are my wins, your bottlenecks are mine as well. I become committed to your goal, part of your cheerleading squad. I want to see you succeed!
I'm not saying I'm a perfect model of ego-less behavior, but my ego and sense of self importance is a topic I regularly visit in my own head space. Ego only complicates projects. I try to stay open to feedback, and to things I could do better. If I can learn something, it's worth it to me to feel a little foolish for a time. This mindset just feels right, and it means that I own my mistakes and work towards fixing them.
Freelancing is my sole form of income. I'm around, and available. I'm not going anywhere, I'm not dropping off the face of the earth, as many of my clients have mentioned happened to them with the developer they had before me. I seek recurring and long-term professional partnerships.
I look forward to meeting with you, tackling your challenging projects, and giving you back hours of your time.
