Marilyn needed additional income that didn't require a lot of physical work. She was very excited when she found Proofread Anywhere!
Hello. My name is Marilyn Safier. I live in North Bend, Oregon, and I'm 78 years old. I recently passed the exam for Proofread Anywhere, and I'm very proud of that.
Before I took this class, I was really struggling financially because my expenses have really increased over the years, the last few years, as I became more disabled. I was looking for some kind of work I could do that didn't require physicality, driving or being sitting in a chair for long periods of time.
I saw Proofread Anywhere on Facebook. And I took the introductory class and I thought, "This is made for me, tailor-made for me." I love words. I love reading. I'm very good with detail, because I had many years as a medical technologist, where you had to follow things very detailed or somebody might die, especially my last job.
I just graduated, so I haven't had any clients yet. I haven't made any money yet. My biggest fear when I started the class was, oh my God, I'm going to put all this money on my credit card, and am I going to be able to make any money? Will people hire me, because I'm too old? Whatever. I did have a lot of feels, fears, so I had to work on my mindset.
But to be honest, I would recommend this class to anybody who wanted to get out of the rat race of working for other people, name their own hours, work as hard or as little as they want and be happy with it, be relaxed. So even though there is some bumps along the road, getting all the software going and learning how to do videos, for example, which I learned today, it's worth it. So I highly recommend Caitlin's course. Plus, she was very inspiring. Thank you. Bye-bye.
