Work From Home as an Editor

Ever want to live the dream of working from home: decide your own hours, take breaks when you need, be responsible for managing your work flow...Most people are surprised how easy it is to launch into a career as a freelance editor and manage your own small business. The initial investment is small, though the educational prerequisites are demanding: excellent command of language and grammar, a strong narrative style, good diplomatic skills, etc.

To begin, start editing a niche that you are familiar with, experts are in demand and most likely you'll have more luck finding work in this way. Client management skills are also essential and you'll need to be as professional as possible. As a paid professional, you'll also have to be ready to set up your work terms. Finally, you'll need to find new clients and maintain existing clients: learn how to pitch your services effectively, and simultaneously build a strong profile and brand as a professional freelance editor.
