    Hello everyone - newbie here...
    I've been on disability for a few years after being paralyzed & having surgery to remedy that, & now I'd like to get off of disability & make a ton of money for myself. One of my main goals is to be able to allow my fiance to have the option to retire earlier than expected...at 62 if not sooner,rather than 65 or later.
    I know..i'm asking a lot,but I intend to make it my reality!! I'm willing to work hard at home on my PC and have the option to just go lie down when my physical condition gets to that point where I just can't sit up any longer without a break...then go back to work at the PC again after an hour or so.
    There aren't many jobs where you can have that option,& I can't sit or stand for any length of time,so here I am,hoping one of you can help me find that magical key to change my life,without wading through litterally thousands of sites and scams.
    Can someone out there help me with some advice,please? I'm looking for someone ( a real person,not a company with an obvious agenda ) who has DONE it and is still doing it because it WORKS !!
    Please,if you see this and are willing to just take a moment of your time (which I know is more valuable than money these days) & just give me the right place,the right idea i need to start the wonderful LIFE-CHANGE I'm searching for. I will be indebted to you more than you know & what comes around,goes around. I need to draw that good karma towards me.It will come to you in return,if you believe like I do.
    Thank you very much. David

    Beware of any website that has pictures of Mansions, Expensive Cars or Piles of Cash.

    They are all a scam except mine. My opportunity is the only one that will make you rich but it is a secret so you have to send me $49 before I will tell you how works..........LOL, LOL, LOL.

    May I suggest that you try something free at first to get an idea of what you are getting into. There is a tactic where some People are offering something free but then tell you that you have a one time chance to upgrade to a paid version that will work better. They tell you to pay now or you will never have a chance again.

    Don't fall for it! They will always take your money to upgrade later. Sometimes they will even offer a discount after you decline the first "one time only" offer. They try to get your money up front because once you try the free version you may see that it doesn't work for you and never will regardless of the upgrade.

    Try different things and find something that works for you. It is best to have multiple streams of income. The internet is constantly changing so what is in today may be out tomorrow.

    Most every one here is promoting something. So click the links at the bottom of our posts and find something that interests you.

    I do medical transcription, which requires training, but there are companies that hire general transcriptionists, even without experience. It takes a while to get good at any kind of transcription, and it isn't easy at first. With experience, you can make decent money at it. It takes perseverance, and it won't make you a millionaire, but it's a good living.

    I forgot to add, you can take breaks whenever you want to in transcription.

    For instance, I have a 24-hour turnaround time, and I can work whenever I want to during that period of time, as long as I send the work back at the designated time.

    Anything that seems too good to be true is likely to be a scam, also never pay upfront for a job.

    Hi David,

    I don't know about a TON of money, but I'm completing offers right now only because I'm short on piano students. Once business picks up again, I won't do as many.

    Some people tend to look down on doing the offers, but honestly it's the one thing so far that's made me any money via the internet. I'm with two companies and just got paid $64.00 for the previous month from the one and have another $50. some headed my way from the other site.

    Honestly, I'd rather have some more piano students, but I need to get off my butt and put out an advertisement. This little extra bit of money doing offers will help with her schooling (we're homeschoolers). I also love machine quilting and would do that but the machines are incredibly expensive, so this is another way I can save up for that. Check out my sig if you're interested. Many people make quite a bit more than I've mentioned.

    (I was taking medical transcription courses a few years ago and ended up not completing because I didn't have the motivation to work at home - I should have stuck with it and may try again in the future).

    Good luck to you!

    I think that weeding out scams and bad opportunities can be a job in itself. I got tired of hearing everyone complian about them all so I took my opportunity in Coastal Vacations and made a free option as well.

    Im under the school of thought that all business should be about moving product. If you have a good product and market it well then as a company you should offer a free option for people as well. That really says to the potential business partner you stand by your opportunity. Lately alot of amazing entrepreneurs have done some opportunities that model after that. My Power Mall is an example.

    So I took the model and made a free option for Coastal Vacations. The response has been great. It great for me as I get to weed out the really serious people. I offer free training and there are no hidden cost. Hope to be able to help as many people out in the future as I can.

    Hey David... If you have some money to invest in a home-based business.. I would agree with Adam and join Coastal. I was really interested in Coastal but right now I do not have the money to invest in a business like Coastal. And believe me... if you see what "Life Changing" opportunity Coastal can do you for you.. You will surely want to join! As you can see.. I'm not with COASTAL yet.. but I highly recommend it. Make sure you interview the directors though. Some will help you more than others. Just do your research first because there are different groups of COASTAL VACATIONS.

    Before investing any money in any venture it would be wise to do a google search of a) the company and b) the management team.

    Just insert the company name in speech marks into the Google search engine, or "company name". Or "company name" "scam". And do the same for any personal names of the company's leaders.

    Ask yourself:

    Does company have good company management and integrity?

    Is the company positioned at the right time in the right industry to be profitable for you?

    Does the company have remarkable products people will want to buy month after month?

    Is the compensation plan going to pay the 95% of the people who join as part timers?

    Does it have a duplicatable system in place that anyone can follow?

    Will you have ongoing support and training included for free?

    To Your Success!

    If you are still looking for an opportunity, I would seriously consider looking at one of the programs stated. However, if you type in the program name in google, and put the word "scam" after it, it will bring up a scam report. Now of course, this will give you a general idea of the program, and there WILL be people who dont succeed and bash the different programs. But still, it will give you some incite on which programs and reputable, and which are not. I, myself, am a part of EDC (Easy Daily Cash), and couldn't be happier with it, you should give that a look also. I wish you the best of luck!

    I don't know what you would like to do. However, if you are looking for some good online programs, I can name the most popular and most trusted programs:

    Site Build It (SBI) - talk to happywife.
    Wealthy Affiliate - talk to getagrip
    Honest Riches by Holly Mann - not sure who is promoting that here.
    My Power Mall - free, quick learn, very easy - talk to kalien

    There are some other good programs too. But these are the most affordable and arguably the most trusted.

    Learn the components of online marketing and then study each component in depth. Additionally, learn about business entities to get write-offs. Learn about HTML, CSS, and little about PHP scripts. Learn about web hosting companies. Learn about everything related to these subjects.

    It takes a few months to know these things well. I'd do that before you try to make any money. If you buy a program, finish it all the way through before proceeding.

    You can also buy books on online marketing and you can read free information about online marketing all over the net.

    You haven't said how much you're looking to earn, but assuming you're looking to earn more than a token amount and don't want to make any investment to get started, my first suggestion would be to consider creating your own blog. They're much easier than it sounds to get started and you then just post your random thoughts, experiences etc. as often as you can. You might want to theme it around your experiences of battling against your physical condition, especially if you do it in a humerous/inspirational way.

    Once you've got established with a few entries, you can then look at monetising the blog. You can place advertising on your blog eg Google Ads, and earn when people click through and/or you can write reviews of other sites/products and get paid for the reviews. Many people are earn hundreds every month just by writing reviews.

    There's a blogging page on my site (see sig) if you want a list of relevant sites.

    Okay, I just ditched my web hosting link in my sig file. I know I made sales from here but the web hosting company wasn't acknowledging it.

    So, since I bought Holly Mann - Honest Riches back in July or August and it's definately the best program for newbies at a very affordable price, I decided to promote that instead.

    So, to add to my above post, you can talk to me about Honest Riches. Holly's forum is great and that comes with the program. Plus she gives a bunch of great bonus ebooks.
