It pays to work smart. Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to do so. As the old adage goes, time is gold-especially when running or building your own business. You can always earn money, but you can never turn back time.

Every second counts and you should not waste them on things you are not that familiar with such as designing a logo, editing a video, or building your own website. When it comes to these things, spare your precious time and leave it to the experts! The resources you need are now literally at the tip of your fingers.

Thanks to Upwork's Project Catalog, you can have more time to focus on the things that matter. This is because they offer pre-built projects for businesses such as business plans, social media solutions, legal consulting, and more! Instead of browsing profiles to hire someone and waiting for uncertain outcomes, Project Catalog allows you to choose based on the output that you already approve of. This eliminates plenty of unnecessary setbacks and delivers swift returns. Here's how it works:
