But we don’t tell you how to find clients and proofreading work until you’ve mastered the actual skill, first.
Many people are afraid of not being able to find clients.
At PA, we believe mastering the skill should always come first, which is why we require students to complete all of the practice transcripts plus a checkpoint quiz before even being able to access the finding clients module in the course. The reasoning for this is simple: if you do not know what you’re doing before going off to find proofreading work, you will only be setting yourself up for failure. Clients can smell lack of mastery from a mile away; it’s for your own benefit you spend plenty of time honing your skill before going off to sell it.
It’s like being worried about how to sell pool service without actually knowing how to service pools.
This is the same thing 🙂 I assure you the course provides everything you need to both do the proofreading work AND get the proofreading work.
People with kids, people without kids, people in their 60’s, people in college … even people living in far-away places like Kenya and the Philippines!
If you work, it works.
But I’m not going to spend a lot of time trying to convince you the course works. Fortunately I have plenty of amazing students who can do that for me. Check out these screenshots from students in our Facebook group:
