Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ciera Lamb, Owner of C.M. Proofs, located in Delft, Netherlands.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I provide editing and copywriting services to small businesses and individuals. I help you perfect your website, manuscripts, legal documents, LinkedIn posts, academic work, and more!

Tell us about yourself

Writing is a powerful form of expression, and I love tweaking and editing pieces so that they perfectly capture the writer's intent. I started out editing friends' college essays for fun, and the rest is history.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Every time I help a client reach their goal – launching a website, getting accepted to their university program, and self-publishing their manuscript – that is my greatest accomplishment.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

The business part! Not only do you need to be good at your craft, but you also need to be well-connected and very, very organized.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Network. Ask questions. Don't be afraid to reach out to those you admire and see if they are willing to chat. I've been most inspired by other small business owners. We need each other!

Where can people find you and your business?
