Sara started Prooftheword in 2016. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Prooftheword?
I’m a graduate of Media & Society, South Bank University (2.1). From there I went on to sub-edit and proofread a range of magazines. My first job after graduation was for Legalease for a couple of years. I edited and proofread a range of magazines – Legal Business, The In-House Lawyer, and Commercial Law Journal. I was also the production editor of the Commercial Law Journal.
I moved on to various companies after that, including the Law Society Gazette, Hemming Group, Legal Business, and various freelancing jobs.
I also traveled for over a year, visiting Thailand, Indonesia, Australia (for a year), and Malaysia.
Once I was made redundant by Legalease (January 2011), I decided to work for myself. It took me a while to get going, but finally, I got to the point where filing my tax returns were worth the effort! I had something to file.
I knew I had great editing skills and could see, wherever I went, the awful English used by so many – menus, leaflets, websites, newspapers, magazines, books. You name it, I can find bad English in it.
My website and business have grown over the years, but more work is always welcome. I provide excellent English editing and proofreading work, so feel free to get in touch if you need any document edited.
