Share your best #FreelanceWorkstation picture and stand a chance to win USD200 from PayPal!
As a Freelancer, your workstation is your office, your control centre, your home for hours in the day. But it’s more than just a practical place to sit and work – it’s a way to express your unique personality.
Whether your setup is a multi-monitor power station, a quirky corner filled with toys and action figures or a backpack and laptop in the coffee shop, we want to see where you do your freelancing. There are TWO things you should do to be qualified:
1. Upload a photo of your #FreelanceWorkstation in your post below.
2. Tell us in a short write-up about what makes it special.
Looking forward to seeing your entries!

And at PayPal, we truly embrace that freelance spirit!

Freelance designer here! Here's why i love my little home office: I like clean, black line and Japanese minimalist warm tone, and I feel like my desk is a reflection of my design philosophy. I also try to keep it uncluttered because when I'm rushing for deadline for a tough client, the tidiness makes me feel like I still have my life together. Also, my workstation (and my freelance job) helps me make money without having to work in a boring cubicle in an office.
I just wanna share my not so cozy work station but very meaningful and comfy. If there is breakfast in bed I have my work in bed. I choose to work in our bed for some reason. I usually work night shift as my clients are from the US and I need to follow the business hours in the US which is Night our time in the Philippines. I have a daughter who use to sleep on my side. The main reason why most of the time I work on bed was because of her, she cannot sleep without me on her side. I tell her a story while I work to make her sleep. I have my desktop set up on our side table also for multi tasking job if needed and my laptop on my lap at the same time. I put our large sofa pillow on my back for my comfy and I am very comfortable in that position while I can straigtly rest my legs in our bed. I have my desk also but most of the time I work this way. I love the way I work. Thanks to God for blessing me good contracts. I am a proud Freelancer.
You seem to have forgotten to attach an image, which you can do by using the 'Image" button on the ribbon as highlighted below. Do edit your entry to qualify for the first round, which ends on June 8th 2016!
The upload button doesn't appear in some phone.
if you tried to upload your image from your phone, try another time from a computer. It should work!
This is my current set up workstation. I like it because it's super cozy the plants the lighting and the woods 😄 I've come a long way from freelancing, back then I am just doing my stuff at my room it is super chaotic and messy but through determination and hardwork I finally made my own dream workstation into reality. I've been paid for years now through paypal and nothing beats their service and I couldnt be more thankful to paypal as without it I would still be on messy room lol
