  1. Thanks for the quick response, Caitlin! I have another question. I watched the Q & A video last night, and one of the questions that Victoria answered dealt with the saturation level of proffers for the number of court reporters. Victoria assured those watching the video that the market for pro offers is open. My question is how many court reporters does a particular court tend to have? Victoria started in Greenville, SC, which is a large area in the upper state. I live in a small town in SC in the Pee Dee area, which is on the other side of SC. However, I am an hour away from Columbia, the Capitol of the state, and 30 minutes from Florence, and 90 minutes from Myrtle Beach. Does my location help, or hinder, my chances? Also, if I have contacts, should I use them?

    1. Hi, Kay!

      I’m happy to answer your questions! First, it’s hard to say, on average, how many reporters each court has. Each court and district is run a little differently. Some court reporters don’t always work exclusively with the courts, either. There’s a great deal of reporters that work outside of court doing depositions and other types of work.

      Second, location has very little to do with your chances of success. While it’s an excellent idea to start locally for various reasons, MOST of the work you’ll obtain as you get the ball rolling will be from reporters all over the nation.

      Lastly, if you have contacts in the industry, I think it’s an excellent idea to use them! In fact, I think that’s a great place to start once you graduate the course! 🙂

      1. Hi Kay,

        We have just relocated to Abbeville, SC and live on Lake Secession so I am familiar with your locale and its environs. I have the same concerns about finding clients for this service because of my rural location.

        I do not have any contacts though. ;(

        I am sincerely hoping that the claim that the location has very little to do with my chances of success will prove to be true. All of the supporting testimonies, blogs and reviews of this program and opportunity that I found from sources not related to proofreadanywhere.com seem to support it.

        So I am optimistic that I will be able to ‘reap what I sow’ and succeed with determination and hard work.

        Maybe we will run into each other sometime since we are in the same geographical area – sort of.

  2. Hi I live in New Zealand and would love to do this course, however I am unsure that I would get work here and how to go about it as the system here is probably much the same but it looks as though your course is geared more towards the US market. I was wondering if you could comment on this


    1. Hi, Andrea. The course is indeed geared toward the US court system. I’m sure much of what the course teaches will translate to the NZ system, but its particulars will be up to you to navigate. The great thing is that you don’t have to worry about securing work in NZ alone; you are able to work for American court reporters from anywhere in the world, really! Well, from anywhere you have internet access, that is. 😉

  3. Hello –

    I have read about both proofreading courses, and I’m wondering which would be best to sign up for. Is it easier/more difficult to find work with one or the other? Does one, or the other, have a greater potential for earning money? It seems that proofreading court transcripts might pay better than general proofreading, but this is completely speculation on my part. I love proofreading and have been doing it my whole life. Actually, I do it in my head automatically when I see mistakes EVERYWHERE, and I have no way of stopping it! 🙂 Please advise. Thank you so much! 🙂 Barbara Drewry
