I’m not teaching these courses to get rich. I don’t want just anyone to enroll. Everywhere on this website, I try really, really hard to make it clear just how much work it is to do what I do. If you’re not prepared to work, or you don’t want to work, this isn’t right for you.
On the other hand, if you’re a coachable person with some mad eagle-eye skills willing to do what it takes, you have a fighting chance.
It is CRUCIAL you think this over thoroughly before enrolling. Do not enroll if you’re not ready to commit to taking action.
If you answer “NO” to ANY of the follow questions, you’re not ready to enroll.
1) Am I a hard worker with a strong work ethic?
2) Do I like reading?
3) Can I spot a variety of errors quickly?
4) Am I willing to forget what I think I already know about proofreading and take the necessary time to not just learn, but MASTER a new skill before going out to network and find clients?
5) Am I willing to look inside myself to identify any negative, limiting beliefs I may have about my ability to learn, and am I willing to do whatever it takes to rid myself of any self-constructed confidence crushers in my life?
6) Am I ready to eat, sleep, and think proofreading for a long period of time?
7) Am I willing to follow ALL instructions carefully, not even think about taking shortcuts, so I can do things the right way?
8) Am I willing to take constructive criticism, face possible rejection, regroup, seek support, and keep trying if things don’t always work out the way I envisioned?
If you answered “YES” to ALL eight of these questions, you can feel comfortable enrolling in Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice™ or General Proofreading:Theory and Practice™ . Again, if you answered “NO” to ANY of these questions, you are not ready to enroll as a student in the course (yet).
A Final Word
You CAN make money doing this, but not without the patience to truly master the skill first. Don’t let the excitement of making money detract from your ultimate goal: mastery.
