Meet Chanel Mullins of Revised Ink

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chanel Mullins.

Chanel, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I run Revised Ink, my own small proofreading, editing, and writing business, completely online. My clients’ jobs range from marketing pieces for car dealerships, grocery stores, and political mailers to hospitals and even resumes, graphic novels, books, and screenplays. Whatever your project, I would be happy to personally work with you and help make your work error free and something you are proud of.

I have been proofreading since 2008 and received my bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of California, Los Angeles with College Honors and Latin Honors, Cum Laude in 2015. Revised Ink has been open since 2015.

Has it been a smooth road?
Proofreading has always come naturally to me. I discovered I was good at something that others sometimes struggle with at an early age and realized I could make a living doing something that was, quite frankly, easy for me. I began working in my field before I received a formal degree, but I wanted to pursue a higher education to become a better writer and have a keener eye.

In a job where being perfect matters, there is always the fear of not catching a mistake or writing something incorrectly. I would say for the 100 I catch, there’s less than one I don’t, and I take it very seriously when I do miss something.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Revised Ink story. Tell us more about the business.
Revised Ink focuses on proofreading, editing, and writing. Proofreading is going through a work and checking for all errors, such as grammatical, spelling, tense agreement, and so on. Editing is a little more in depth than proofreading and includes everything proofreading does and more. If the document needs to be reworded or reworked in areas, that is where editing comes in handy. Think of it as a document that needs a little more TLC than average. Writing is another service I offer which is an hourly rate for a specific job that we discuss. It could be an article for a newspaper or even an interview that you need written up.

I am most proud of my attention to detail and thoroughness for my clients. I have excellent, on time communication and treat each of my clients specifically by remembering their preferences and working with them to ensure they receive what they want.

I think what sets my proofreading business apart from others is the fact that I am a small, one man show. It allows me complete quality control, which makes me solely accountable for your work. Rest assured, you will not be passed around or lost, but given appropriate time and attention.

What are your plans for the future? What are you looking forward to or planning for – any big changes?
If my workload remains manageable, I will continue to learn and deliver for my clients as needed. If I am so lucky enough to have a surplus of work one day, I would think about possibly having to hire someone to assist me. I would go from there on how much I needed to expand, but I enjoy doing things myself for excellent quality control.
