    Joyce is an outstanding skilled graphic artist and has created a ton of artwork for me over the past few years. She has a good eye, makes beautiful designs and has good attention to detail. Skills and knowledge is not an issue for her. Where she can use improvement is in the area of Attitude. She has the kind of attitude that will fly under the radar for many. However, from the view of someone who is a bit more evolved in personal growth, I find it to be very disrespectful at times and as a result, I have had to move on to more professional graphic designers. One thing that is interesting and refreshing to note is that I thought for a while I may not find another like (and as cheap as) Joyce. However, my new graphic designer is 4 times as expensive,, but gets the designs done in a small fraction of the amount of time. I actually save money. So, something to consider when evaluating people based on price. As an employer on Odesk/UpWork for nearly 6 years, I have hired lots of contractors for all sorts of jobs. I have received 4.74 stars out of 66 reviews / 116 hires / nearly 10,000 hours of happily done work / 13 jobs are still active, most of whom I have worked with for YEARS. Occasionally it happens that you get a contractor who seems loyal at first, who gives you their word of honor to complete projects by a specific time-frame or at least work a certain number of hours per week. Unfortunately, we live in a world where words like "Agreement", "Integrity", "Commitment" are completely lost on most people and as such, conflicts and misunderstandings arise. The vast majority of contractors I have hired have professed that they love working with me and continue to pursue me for additional work. As it turns out, I'm actually a very flexible employer. The only thing I strictly insist on is HONEST COMMUNICATION. I do not bend at all when it comes to people keeping their "WORD" with me. Mean what you say. Do what you say. When you say. Situations do arise when you are not able to keep an initial agreement. In order to keep in integrity, make a new agreement, the moment you realize you will not be able to. Nothing works without integrity. Keep your word. It's all that you are. When you break your word with others, you are also breaking it with yourself. And as a result, you are going to constantly struggle in life with issues of self-esteem from lying to yourself. I have learned a lot from this experience. What I have learned moving forward is that I will only work with people in the future who totally GET what integrity is and choose that in their life.

    Regarding time, it could also be because I charge less, so there is more micromanaging from the client and chit chats... I usually do not start the time whenever there is a discussion about the project, which others may think, if the client is using your time, then they should be billed. I only do not stop the time when i am in the middle of doing the task and i am pulled out to talk about something the client just had an idea about or something the client wants to discuss which often happens. Any client who is mindful about time would naturally not waste time with someone who charges $40/hour. I would suggest to stick with upwork/odesk messaging and not communicate via skype or email so that all conversations with the client is documented as well. She is much much more respectful to you as a human being when communicating via upwork. i have been called many things by the client, attacked and accused of many things that i let pass by since I aim to maintain a respectful bound with all my clients. With that said, I still would say that I valued the client as much as i have valued all my other clients and she is a true learning experience for me. I have so many clients now from doing $2/book covers... from starting at $4/hour to $150/cover that is why I needed to stick with a schedule and I cannot attend to her needs as a client. I have maintained a top position here in odesk/upwork for 3 years. I did tell the client many times to seek for a backup designer because I do not want to be the reason why she is not able to do her projects but she stuck with me. i believe this is because I am good. Very good. i am not abusive and she knows this. I have sooooooo many clients who loves me and I love so much, any job they give me even if its difficult is such a pleasure because they are good people who respects me as a person. Some clients even send boxes of goodies from US to Philippines on a regular basis I will probably get a skype message from her because she will not allow you to have the last word on anything. At all. Even good words. I am glad this is done. I would rather have peace than stress even if it means losing money… I will still send the psds via email, of course. Others won’t after they have been attacked and called and accused of many awful things after you have said nice things about them but I have integrity so I will.
