I recently stumbled onto and signed up for an account on the site Thumbtack.com as a service provider, where I have posted an abridged version of my portfolio and my service offerings. So far, I’ve received over 10 quote requests from potential clients in less that 36 hours, so I am definitely impressed by Thumbtack’s ability to provide connections from service providers to potential clients.
I’ve also found myself a guitar teacher through Thumbtack as well (yes, I am learning to play the guitar finally, after years of sitting dormant on my bucket list lol!).
That said, I highly recommend the site for both people looking for service providers / instructors and for those of us looking for extra work in our areas of expertise to pad our wallets.
