I learned to make subtitles professionally (Agile work). It took me some time, not so easy as I thought.

This job was done at upwork.com.
My first subtitling  job,   (transcribed and made subtitles for an hour of video)
I learned to make subtitles so that my friends can understand  one video where Sepp Holzer is speaking, which available for free online...

Here is my submission for the Commerce - Sand - Perform Labor over the Internet and Get Paid BB.

Herland Forest Cemetery contacted me and requested I create a map/chart of all the cemetery plot locations.  I was provided with GPS information for approximately 50 plots (locations) across the 20 acre parcel.  I created an excel spreadsheet with the data then a scatter chart - that was a learning experience.  I took the chart into Microsoft Visio as a layer in the cemetery's parcel map file (parcel boundary is purple on the map).  

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
  • A description of your labor
  • A picture of proof that the labor was done over the internet
  • A picture of proof it made you at least $50 (you can smudge the personal info, as long as it is identifiable as yours)

    Hello! I am kinda new here and enthusiastic about SkIP. Thought I'd dip my toe in the water with a skill I practice almost every day.

    I provide bookkeeping services over the internet. My work is entirely remote, so I can do it pretty much anywhere.

    Attached:
    1) A screenshot of my website's account page, so you know it's mine. It outlines, generally, what I do.
    2) Recent proof of payment for a small invoice.

    I am a freelance web and app developer and have done a lot of work over the Internet in my time.

    I have built two client websites in the past 18 months. The most recent, Haus Musik, is a business that aims to connect classical musicians with hosts wishing to put on "house concerts", bridging the lockdown gap for professional musicians (who cannot work) and music-lovers (who cannot see live music in big venues). The other website was for the company that owns Haus Musik, Quadrangle Consulting. You can see my name in the footer of the parent website as additional proof.

    I built everything on these website from scratch, including the blogging platform on the parent company site. Some of the images are taken from stock photo archives. I worked with my clients to agree a style and colour pallete for both projects.

    I live in Spain, and I give English classes online. I used to give them in person, due to COVID they're now online. 20 euro per hour. I give one class every tuesday at 6pm. At the end of the month, I get paid for that month. This month there was a holiday so only three classes, so 60 euro. I asked my student to hold up the pillow he was holding to respect everyone's privacy.

    Edge case BB submission
    Not sure if this is enough evidence or if I need to get a picture of someone's desktop next time I do it, but I offer a word-of-mouth service where I'll fix computer viruses (assuming the computer still has an internet connection) or troubleshoot an issue that someone is having (such as a driver issue, a program suddenly crashing despite no updates, etc) over TeamViewer.

    I tend to be pretty open with the price of my service and just say "pay what you think it was worth", since at least for virus repair, it's mostly a lot of waiting on my end for scripts/programs and it's something I can multitask. Here's a screenshot of a recent fix (with permission from him) with a payment that was over $50:

    Note: I'm not sure how you can do this but I think you need to somehow show - Proof that the labor was done over the internet

    Anyone have suggestions for what would qualify as proof for showing that computer repair/troubleshooting (via TeamViewer) was done over the internet?

    A recorded screen share showing you doing the work?  A video of you working with a customer on your computer showing enough detail so it's clear what you're doing?

    I think a recorded screen share might work! It would just be tricky to get permission since it would show someone's personal data (files they have, websites they visit, applications they have installed, maybe file names that are of concern, etc etc) but I think I can make it work.
