Stay-at-home mom Selina tells us how Caitlin Pyle's General Proofreading course allowed her to not miss a moment with her children while building her proofreading business. Selina gained confidence in herself while taking the course and is excited for her future!
Hey everyone. I'm Selina Krinock and I am living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I wanted to talk to you for a minute today about Proofread Anywhere. And just to give you some background information on myself, before I discovered Proofread Anywhere, I was working as a travel agent. And then COVID hit, and it seemed like the world stopped as far as traveling was concerned, so I needed to find a way to make up for the commissions I was losing. And I stumbled across Proofread Anywhere one day, while I was spending too much time on Facebook. As an English major, I thought this course was perfect, it appealed to my love of reading and writing. And the course was priced very reasonably, so I jumped at the chance to try something new. It was great because I knew I could do it part-time or full-time, and everything was on my own terms.
I felt like this course came at just the right time. I ended up being laid off permanently from my travel agent position, so I was a little nervous about the course at first, but once I passed the vocabulary test, it gave me the confidence to keep going. And the benefits are now I get to stay home with my two children, I can help them with their virtual school lessons during the day, and work on building my proofreading business in the evenings. I don't have to commute, I don't have to buy casual office attire, and I don't have to pay for parking downtown. So all of those things are definitely also extra benefits to this course. And being able to be my own boss is also great because now I'm definitely not going to fire myself. I highly recommend this program. Caitlin does a super job of putting all the practical tools in this kit, as far as practicing, giving you resources to utilize, if you have questions, great support system.
There's a Facebook group with other students and graduates of the course, and everybody just pitches in and helps each other, so that's also a great benefit. She also gives you a lot of tools for helping you find clients and to build relationships with them, so they're not just one-time clients, that you build those relationships, And I'm definitely happy that I chose to dive right in and take the course. And I hope that you can do the same. Thanks for listening.
