May Elance Spotlight: The Winning Entry

As we wrap up our Elance Spotlight contest for May, we’ve seen elancers submit and share real stories about how online work has changed their lives and businesses. There's no greater proof to the advantages of working online than what you did--which was embrace the online work movement and then share your own personal experiences with the world.

It was all of your great stories that made our decision so difficult. But without further adieu, the winner of our May Elance Spotlight (and a new iPad 2) is...

Bill Meeks of Meeks Mixed Media!

Bill's video was an amazing representation of all the benefits of online work, as he shared his accomplishments working on Elance and even gave us a glimpse into his home life (and sense of humor!). Congratulations Bill!

We would like to take a moment to say thank you to all of our other incredible participants, who will each receive 20 bonus Connects in their Elance account:



To check out all of the entries, head over to the Elance YouTube Channel, where you can find the videos in the right-hand navigation.

Lastly, please check back early next week for the details of our June Elance Spotlight!
