Suzanne Gilad

Illustrating firsthand that proofreading and copyediting can be profitable and fun while allowing additional pursuits, Sue is also a successful voice-over artist based in New York. You can hear her voice happily hawking products and playing characters on national and regional radio and television.

Thanks to some unexpected proofreading projects on personal finance a few years ago, a whole world of education in residual income opened for Sue. She wrote The Real Estate Millionaire (McGraw-Hill, 2005) with her husband, Boaz Gilad.

Sue currently leads seminars on multiple streams of income, and her latest passion is to teach financial freedom. Sue’s next book is the story of the creation of 15 millionaires in five years. Visit www.SueGilad.com to learn more.
