In 2011, Charmaine Pocek was a full-time corporate recruiter saving to adopt with her husband. She decided to try out gig site Fiverr in order to make extra money, and began spiffying up people’s resumes for $5 apiece — netting her $4 each after Fiverr’s cut.

As described in a story I wrote last year on people who earn six figures annually on the site, Pocek was initially making $10-$15 an hour. But with positive customer ratings and a new certification, she began charging higher prices. That in turn allowed her to quit her full-time job and just provide her services on Fiverr, where, for an executive package, she charges as much as $800.

She is now the first freelancer on Fiverr to make $1 million from the site.

When she realized she had crossed the threshold, “I was elated and surprised and excited,” she says, “more excited to keep going, because you always hear the first million is the hardest to make. It made me want to get back out there and do more.” Courtesy of Charmaine Pocek
