Medical Billing?

I just got the following in an email:

Medical Coding Training in your area

Start To Finish on all Medical Billing Programs

Find medical billing courses that fit you

I have lots of online ads relating to doing medical billing at home but I have also seen many posts from people who say that these kinds of things are scams and that they haven't found legitimate work as medical billing jobs online.

If you manage to find a legitimate business that lets you be able to work from home then that is a good thing! But please make sure that it is a legitimate business!

Here Is Another "Working From Home" Idea That You May Want To Try!

Here is another working from home idea that you may want to try yourself! I can't take credit for it because I found it posted by someone else online.

"my mom has always worked from home and she recently started a business where she’ll help elderly people go grocery shopping, take them to doctors appointments, etc. she charges 10dollars an hour with a 3 hour minimum and she just went around putting up fliers at different churches and supermarkets and shes had a really good turn out. this is really nice because it gives you the ability to make your own hours and work as much or as little as you want.".

Getting Paid For Your Work!

I have blogged about the various ways that one can work from home !

I have often said that the fastest way to make money is to find a need and fill it.

The best way to make money is to take something that you love and turn it into a business.

Whether you have decided to start your own online business, make money by blogging  or even starting your own consulting business the next thing that has to be done is to decide how you will get paid!

The best (and fastest) way to get paid is to be able to accept credit card payments online.  There are a number of sites that will let you be able to do this!  For example Moneris Solutions has processed more than 3 billion credit and debit card transactions a year, for over 350,000 merchant locations across North America.  Moneris Solutions is your single point of contact for VISA, MasterCard, American Express, INTERAC Direct Payment, and all Point of Sale solutions.

What this means is that you can get paid directly from your site!

Let us say, for example, that you want to sell your homemade crafts online - but don't want to go through Ebay to do it!

First you would set up a website or blog and post pictures of your items for sale.  You would include descriptions of your item (kind of think of it as your own item catalog) and you would also include a link / button where your buyers could click on it and then you would get paid almost immediately!

One of the things that you definitely have to make sure of is that the company that you are going to use for your credit card transactions is very reliable!  Before you decide on such a company make sure to check them out thoroughly!  Use a reputable company for your credit card transactions!

I should also point out (because I read it in a book) that you should also use other methods of payments so that your buyers have more than one option!  I mention and recommend being able to handle credit card transactions online because it is easy, quick and fast! 

But as you are growing your business you may want to be able to give your customers more options - though some may feel uncomfortable with using their own street address as a business address when letting customers pay by money order or check.

Personally I have received online payments using the online systems and I have to tell you that it is great!

You may think that no one would want to pay you for your product or services but you will never know unless you try!

A few years ago I never thought that someone would actually pay me to design a website for them but they did!  That was my very first computer-related-paying job and I have NEVER looked back since!

So now is the time for you to get started!  The holiday season is fast approaching and if you have some sort of product or service to provide the sooner that people know about it the better (and the sooner your potential to get paid!!

Poetry Wanted

If you have an interest in writing poetry then you should definitely do some online checking around!

For instance:

There was a company that was running a public project. They were looking for poems that focused on living on the road, trucking, and driving. Driver-poets were asked to submit a poem or poems to be used in their an anthology.

If you do just a little searching online you will be able to find other related sites that have to do with poetry contests and other poetry-related competitions. You may even find some that will pay you for your poetry as well!

It doesn't hurt to start looking online for these kinds of opportunities!

For more info you can visit their website.

Even Monks Have To Make Money!

Just read a very interesting online article about how times are even hard for monks! There was a time when they could make money by baking bread!

But as the article says "while their expenses have gone up, their income has either stayed the same or gone down!

The monks have figured out some very ingenious ways to earn money and these kinds of things are not just the kinds of things that only monks can do!

They have taken something that they are good at and turned them into a business so that they can make and earn more money!

So if they can come up with ways to make more money - then why can't you?

Can You Sew?

Here is my Working From Home Idea #101005 - "Sewing From Home!"

If you are able to sew do you realize that you have a talent? There are many people that do not know how to sew but who may need your "sewing" services?

You can start small by letting people around your neighborhood know that you are offering sewing services. Maybe you can sub-contract with some of the dry-cleaners in your area?

Design a nice little flyer on your computer and distribute it around your neighborhood!

Start a blog (or website) and use it for your business. You can blog about your sewing projects, put your business card on your blog and take pictures of your sewing projects and upload them to your blog.

You can start a sewing class or a sewing club. There are a lot of things that you will be able to do with your sewing talent and that will bring you many different ways of being able to earn money online with your talent.

Join the Google Adsense Program and add ads to your blog so that you can start earning money right away!

Show the world your talent!

The Law Of Attraction?

I do a lot of "law of attraction tweets on Twitter. Why? Because I really do believe in the law of attraction and I have seen constant testimonials from others who are very successful who have used the law of attraction.

What is the law of attraction? Simply stated the law of attraction says that what you focus on you will get. So, for example, if you want to make more money then you should focus on wealth and not the lack of having money. Because if you only focus on the lack of money all you will get is a lack of money.

Money comes in many forms! For example I have a blog about government grants where I post about basic information about available grant programs. There is also such a thing as unclaimed money where there are countless lists of accounts that have money that has not been claimed! (You can find out more information about unclaimed money by going to my blog, The Unclaimed Money Blog.)

I have had my own examples of the law of attraction working for me as far as money has been concerned. Money came to me in the most unusual of ways! So I do know that the law of attraction has worked for me. Now I just have to learn how to become a master at it - which is what I am working on.

If you want to be able to work from home visualize it! Take some time out and actually visualize how you would like your life to be! Think about it in as much detail as you can and really feel the feelings of you working from home! Eliminate as much doubt, worry and stress as you can because those feelings will get in the way of what it is that you really want to feel which is successful and wealthy!

A very popular law of attraction saying is that we can create our lives the way that we want it to be. I really do believe that that is true!

Want to see some of my law of attraction tweets? Here is a link to my Twitter site:

How Is This For Inspiration?

When Mark Zuckerberg (of Facebook) showed up in Palo Alto three years ago, he had no car, no house, and no job and now he is a Billionaire!

It just goes to show you that you never know! Financial miracles can happen all the time! You may not have a job now but you never know what tomorrow might bring!

Working From Home Idea 100918 - Become A Photographer!

Although I have mentioned this before I was recently reminded of this idea again! Did you know that you can make money from home by becoming a photographer! You don't have to be a professional photographer all you really need is a digital camera. And it really may be more easier than you think!

Like I said I can't take credit for this because I was reading a blog post about it and you can view this same blog post by clicking here!

I have taken a few pictures in my time and it suddenly occured to me that I am a photographer as well - all be it I may just be a beginner / hobbyist at it - LOL!

But this may be something that you may want to consider! It's a great idea for finding something that you can do working from home!

I just got finished reading a post from someone who works from home but they are so discouraged with it because they are not making enough money. I work from home and so do many others who work legitimately from home and they are not doing things like paid surveys and the like!

For instance, I, myself do grant research and consultations from home. There are so many myths about government grant programs that the more informed people are the better! I also have a blog about unclaimed money called The Unclaimed Money Blog. I am also a Dream Job Consultant as well! These are but some of the ways that I work and earn money online. I also belong to the Google Adsense program as well! To find out more about the Adsense program just visit The Adsense Consultant's Blog.

Plant Studio?

PlantStudio is a 3D graphics program that creates - what else - plants!

Here you see a picture of a pink rose that I created using this program. Then I got to thinking that others might be interested in having a copy of this object. (If you would like to download your own free copy of this object just click here.)

So I decided to make different variations of the pink rose

and offer them for sale!

Not only can the pink rose objects be downloaded but the original file from Plant Studio can also be downloaded as well.

Now you may think "Who would be interested in this object?" Right? Well I downloaded the sample pink rose today and so far 2 people have already downloaded it!

How does this related to working from home?

I have mentioned many times on my Dream Job Consultant site that one of the ways that you can start a business working from home is to take a program that is already on your computer and turn that into a business. What I am doing here with PlantStudio is definitely a good example of this!

What you can do is to start to create different varieties of plants and flowers and then sell them online. There are lots of people that are already doing this on 3d-related sites like Renderosity.com and others. Some people (like myself) are even creating sites of their own and selling their own objects themselves.

Hopefully this will encourage you to start looking around on your computer to see what programs that you have that you can use to start your own business.

You can also check out some of my other 3d art by going to my blog, The 3D Beginner.

"What Are You Going To Do With Your Tax Refund?"

Someone asked this question on Twitter and I decided to answer it too.

Since I am self-employed I have to pay a self-employment tax so that means that I really don't get a tax refund. )-:

The money that I earn from my grant research, my Google Adsense income and my ebooklets all have to be reported and I have to pay a tax on that income. Since it isn't automatically take out I have to take it out and account for it myself.

This may seem like one of the more bad aspects of working for one's self but it is something that I would still rather do than to work for someone else!

It also makes filling out my tax forms a little bit more complicated because there is more than just the simple 1040 form that I have to fill out. But I'm happy to say that I am almost finished with filing my tax returns. I have already sent in 2 of the 3 that need to be done and the third on I just have to stick the forms in an envelope and mail them before the 15th! So I'm almost done!

Grants For Starting A Sewing Business?

Here is a reply that I gave to a woman who sent me a message about how she wanted to start a business of her own and was looking for grant programs to help her.

"First of all have you ever heard of "starting" small and allowing your business to grow? Countless times I have blogged about grant programs out there to help people start their own business. I don't know the specifics of your bi-laws and I don't know about the specifics of any bi-laws (if any) at the place that you are moving to and I say that because there may still be a way for you to start your sewing business small from your home while you allow it to grow. What about taking advantage of the fact that you have online access and start a website / blog of your own discussing your business? Get google adsense ads and earn money from that as well.

Unfortunately I am seeing this all the time! People say what they don't have but don't realize what they DO have!

If you are really serious about wanting to start your own business then you are going to have to get serious about finding the information about the grants that you may be eligible to apply for. If you do not want to pay companies / programs to find the grant programs for you I can't understand why you just don't go online and start doing the research for yourself?

The same thing applies to your needing dental care. I have mentioned and posted countless times here on Aidpage (and so have others) about the free dental programs that are out there so I suggest that you look at some of the previous posts here on Aidpage to find the information.

"Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow"

Have you ever heard this piece of advice?

If you love doing something, you will naturally become good at it simply because you love doing it and you spend time doing it, more so than the average person. Repetition inevitably leads to improvement. And it’s not like you do the same thing over and over again. You learn each time you do it and get better and better. And if doing what you love incorporates your natural talents, you’re likely to become great at it. Either way, you become better than the average person not only in terms of skill, but in a variety of areas related to what you love to do – knowledge, experience, intuition, contacts made, etc., that you gather along the way.

You start to differentiate yourself from the pack and stand out and that’s when you really begin to put yourself on the path of making money from doing what you love to do.

What Is A Graphics Designer?

I found this definition online:

Graphic designers analyze, and create visual solutions to communications issues. They usetheir artistic talent to convey a message across in print, on the Web, electronically, and in film. Graphic designers use a variety of methods to create designs such as color, type, illustration, photography, animation, and various print and layout techniques.

According to an online article graphics designing is a growing and competitive field! Which means while there is a growing opportunity being a graphics designer there is also a lot of competition for it as well.

However I don't want this to discourage you because there are many opportunities for you to have a career as a graphics designer.

You can start small - by doing designing for businesses and organizations in your local area.

Now I realize that this isn't the kind of career for everybody and you may think that you aren't skilled enough to become a graphics designer. But what does a graphic designer do? Amongst other things they design graphics for both online and offline publications and this can include websites as well! And this is definitely a job that lets you be able to work from home.

Before I started getting involved in grant research I was a webpage designer and my very first client was a neighbor of mine! I designed his family's website! So you never know where your clients can come from!

The best way to get started at this is to become your own first client! Design a logo for your work at home business / career. The next thing to do is to put up a website or blog telling everyone about your business! But don't forget to do offline things as well - like creating a flyer telling about your business.

You can design logos and graphics using the most simplest of software! I have Microsoft Paint program that had already came with my computer and I could even use that to create logos and graphics! Most computers should come with the Microsoft Word program and that has even more options to help you create logos and graphics as well! There are lots of free software programs available online that can help you create and design graphics and logos as well!

There have been quite a few people who have begun their online career as a graphics design artist simply by starting with a website or a blog!
