  1. These success stories are my favorite posts on the blog 🙂 Always inspiring and always interesting to hear the different beginnings and paths everyone takes on their journey.

    1. It really is amazing how you can really personalize your journey!

  2. I love this and it's great timing for me! I started the course late summer. I took a little time off the past few months because I work a seasonal job during the holidays (that I LOVE and didn't want to miss out on– basically I wrap boxes of chocolates in pretty paper). Now it's time to get back on my routine of incorporating time in my weekly schedule for my proofreading. I am at the start of year 2 of a 4-year project at work. When the project is complete, I don't know that there will be a position that I want to retain at work. I am working towards being able to leave that job and move to full time proofreading by then! My biggest "set back" so far is I keep saying, you have plenty of time. Stories like these remind me that I don't have to wait. I can master this skill and start anytime, putting me in a better position to leave my job at any time!

  3. I have found the general proofreading course very informational (a good recap of things learned in the past and finetuning of things I needed to brush up on). I am looking forward to next completing the transcript proofreading course (along with the life events that pull me away constantly. I am excited about that second course as I have a background in law and hope that will assist me in proofreading legal-related products (a possible niche for me?). Thanks for listening. 🙂
