Here Is YET Another Site That Is Hiring!

As I mentioned before, one of my hobbies is 3D designing and I have a blog called The 3D Beginner. Since there is so much to learn about 3D designing I go to a lot of 3D-related websites and that is how I found out about this latest job opportunity!

Daz3D is a website about 3D designing and its also a community of sorts for 3D designers as well! Designers here sell their work such as 3d models that they have made and textures made specifically for 3D models as well. Although this is a great site to be able to sell one's 3D-related models there is also a link to the site's "job opportunities" as well! They have a lot of graphic-related job openings and they even have a job opening for a senior web designer. They also have some business-related job openings as well! Here is a link to their site where they have posted their job openings.

If you think that you might be interested then give their site a look to see if you are eligible for any of them.

A Government Grant "Scam" Alert!

As someone that does grant research and consultations for a living, it pains me to have to read articles about companies and / or other businesses that are not operating on the up and up! I read an online article about one such company and I will be providing a link to it below the blog post.

It seems that this "government grant" business asks you to pay something like $1 or $2 plus shipping and handling for sending you their government grant cd. BUT you might also be billed monthly on your credit card account! It's supposed to be in the fine print. They are currently advertising on the popular Facebook site(s).

Here is a link to the article. The article itself provides a lot of good information about this company including mentioning how one can get that monthly charge to their credit card canceled.

Like I said I do grant research for a living (you can visit my Grant Basics 101 Blog to find out more information about what I do and if you would like to find out more information about government grant programs that you may be eligible for.)

I'm sure that basically if you are curious about government grant programs one of the most frequently asked question has got to be "Are there any government grant programs to help start a business" and the answer to that is Yes! You can go to my Grant Basics 101 website to see examples of grant recipients who have received money to start their own businesses!

Another popular frequently asked question is about government grants and starting a daycare business - again the answer is yes there are government (and other) grant programs that can help you start your own daycare business! As a matter of fact I sent one daycare-related client over 10 pages of information concerning grant programs that her for-profit daycare center may be eligible for - so yes there are grant programs to help start a for-profit daycare business. You can find out more information about that by going to my Grant Basics 101 - Daycare website and blog. You can also listen to my Grant Basics 101 Podcast in which the first caller asks about government (and other) grant programs for their for-profit daycare business.

As far as working from home is concerned it really depends on the kind of work that you want to do. There are grant programs for writers, artists and even musicians too! There is even a grant program for comic book artists as well!
