Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be your own boss, running an editorial business? Or how your day would look if you could create a schedule so you could have more freedom in your day?
Callie Walker did. She wanted to be her own boss so she could work on her terms and do work that was fulfilling. Once she discovered that proofreading was a great fit for her, she joined High-Level Proofreading Pro and started her editorial business, Proof Corrections by Callie. She says, “It has given me so much freedom, being my own boss, setting my own schedule. It’s so nice. It’s taken off the stress of working for someone else.”
I actually interviewed Callie a while back, and since then, she has grown her business to focus solely on Christian and clean content. Proofreaders and editors for Christian and faith-based content are in demand since there is a lot of content being created in those genres. I sat down with Callie for a video interview recently, and we spoke about her editorial business.
In our interview we discussed:
- The moment she realized proofreading and copyediting could be for her
- How her life changed and became less stressful after she started her editorial business
- The key to building a roster of regular clients
- How being a writer has helped her as a proofreader
- What it’s like to work with Christian, faith-based and clean content
- Plus lots more!
