Hey, I'm a composer!

Oh, most definitely.  When I do compose I'll start with the piano down stairs and compose from there adding the notes to my sheet.  Then I'll come upstairs to the computer add the notes to a midi program and add instruments as I see fit.  I can always convert the midi to a wave or mp3.

Hey I'm a composer!

Grants - I found some interesting information about them!

While I have mainly concentrated my research to the US I have found out about grants in other countries - the UK,  China, Russia - and some of those grants were even provided by the US!

You don't even need a webcam to make money on the Internet!

How about setting up your own private chat room?  You can either add special code to your web page or use one of your chat programs to set it up.  You can schedule chat sessions, make appointments online for specific chats and on and on.

You can offer tutoring, advice or anything that your imagination can think of.

Another reason that I'm glad that I work from home!

Because I am a smoker!  The last job that I had we had to go outside to smoke during our breaks.  A few other people smoked in the bathroom - I didn't do that only because I was too afraid of getting caught.

Now that I work at home I can smoke when and where I want!  Thank Goodness!

You really should have a website!

Even if its not for business you really should consider having a website.  Your ISP may provide you with webspace but even if they don't you should take advantage of some of the free webhosts that are out there!  You can also "buy" your own website by registering a domain name and paying a webhost to host your webpages!

People advertise galore about "email me for more information" where it would really help them more better if they had a website.  You just don't know what you are missing out on!

Make Money While You Sleep?

Can you really make money while you sleep?  The answer is YES!  

Let's say you make custom jewelry and you want to sell it online.  Well, you could start with Ebay.  You could sell your jewelry using Ebay and put up a picture of your jewelry.  Now depending on how long your auction will last your jewelry will be seen by everyone that views the auction.  Remember the Internet is World Wide! Every time of the day and night your auction will be viewed by people all over the world.  

Let's say you decide to sell your jewelry using a webpage of your own.  If you take credit card orders and have the "Buy" button right on your page that means that when that "Buy" button is clicked you have just received an order.  When your webpage is up and on the Internet it is seen 24 hours a day and seven days a week!  Even while you are sleeping!
