Want to start a home-based business? Working at home as a proofreader and editor has lots of perks. You can have a flexible schedule that allows you to choose how, when and where you work. In fact, you don’t have to be glued to your desk for 8 hours a day in order to be successful. Another perk is that the day-to-day cost of running an editorial biz is low. You don’t need a lot of equipment — just your computer and an internet connection!
One person who is thriving in her editorial business and working the way she wants, is LaToya Turner.
LaToya balances running her home-based proofreading and editing business, Creative Culture Editorial Services, with raising her family. Her clients are female entrepreneurs, just like her. LaToya credits her success with the level of expert care she puts into each of her projects. As a proofreader, copy editor, and line editor, she enjoys working with social media and business content.
I chatted with LaToya recently about her business, and she even gave me a peek at what her average day is like!
In this video interview, you’ll discover how LaToya:
- Has successfully grown her business just through word of mouth
- Puts her family before anything else

I really admire LaToya’s desire to create an impact in both her professional and personal life. She’s drawn clear boundaries, which has allowed her to maintain a sustainable work-life balance.
