    Do you want to make more money on Upwork? The world's biggest freelancing platform is full of opportunity to make thousands each month. So why do most Upworkers not make any money? Because they do it all wrong. I know this because I used to be one of them. My profile was full of mistakes, I would bid on 30 jobs and win none of them, and I never received a single job invite in my first two years on the site. Now I've bid and won countless jobs and have enough repeat business and private job invites where I rarely have to apply to public jobs anymore.

But his journey has just begun and survival against the unforgiving wilderness with his blind mate, Grey Wolf, is a personal challenge. He had never known fear...until now!

    The starved wolf-pack was hot on his trail. It was the biggest pack that Wabi had ever seen. He calculated there were at least 50 animals in it, possibly even more. Nearer and nearer they came, until the first were scarcely 200 feet away. Close enough for Wabi to see this was a hungry, determined pack. Then, with a shout, the Indian leaped and dashed fearlessly toward them. This unexpected move stopped the foremost wolves and Wabi fired two of his three remaining bullets. The trees were 80 yards away....
