"It's allowed me to take the step to quit my job and start my own editorial business. It gave me the confidence to feel like I am truly an editor who's good at her job. It has completely changed my life to a place where I have more freedom and can work with other authors while reading interesting ideas and stories."

"It has allowed me to lead a life truer to my personality and to myself. I can work from home and keep my priorities in order. It has been a blessing in my life. When I first started my business, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to find clients. I am proud to have made connections and have a steady stream of clients."​
