Learn how Audrey from Ohio built her proofreading business alongside her full-time job with kids at home!
Hi, my name is Audrey, and I'm from Ohio. So before Proofread Anywhere, my life was pretty standard. I work -- I still work a 9-to-5, come home, take care of my kids. You know, putt around the house. We do our activities on the weekends. And I was getting kind of tired of that. I get tired of working for somebody else.
So I was looking up many ways to make money from home, and I came across Proofread Anywhere and I thought, huh, this might be a good fit for me because I love reading and helping people. And I could get paid to read books and find the errors.
Before I enrolled in the course, I was concerned about the cost of the course and I followed Caitlin for several months. I did the -- there was a free five-day email course I took to see if it would be a good fit for me. And I actually decided to finally take the plunge. Caitlin had sent out an email about -- I forget exactly what it was, but basically she was willing to like back up her course, I think it was she was offering some sort of coupon and I was like, you know what, this is my chance; I'm gonna do it.
So I jumped in and I bought the course. And I did a couple modules and then, you know, life got in the way; I had another kid, and it kinda got pushed to the side. And then after following Caitlin some more, I was like, you know what? I need to start this. I need to -- I started this, and I need to finish it.
So I did. So watching Caitlin and her energy really inspired me to finish the course and just to get started on my business, 'cause that's what I really wanted to do. And since graduating from the course 18 months ago, I have been slowly building my business. And I just got to the point this month, where I am fully booked for the month.
I'm not making enough yet to quit my full-time job, but I'm leaps and bounds where I would be if I had done absolutely nothing. Caitlin's course has also challenged me in many ways personally. I've overcome a lot of mindset issues. And I have her to thank for introducing me to the world of working for myself and being able to follow my dreams, like believing in myself that I can do that.
So I absolutely recommend the course for anyone who'd like to start working from home and loves to read. And there's plenty of work out there. Everyone needs a proofreader!
