Proofreaders are normally the members of the publishing team that make sure that documents look and read their best before they are sent to print. Along with being able to recognize errors in written materials, proofreaders must be able to correctly mark the documents for corrections.

FINANCIAL SECURITY– side hustles can help you to stop living paycheck-to-paycheck, get rid of debt, take family vacations, and have extra fun money


Plus, proofreading is something you naturally do for free anyway. Why not get paid for those incredible eagle eyes you were blessed with?
