Other ideas that involve setting up a website and work from home as an independent business –

  • Web design and graphic design
  • College scholarship search service
  • Editing service
  • Teach newly certified personal trainers how to market themselves and be successful.  Lots of programs on becoming certified, not enough on how to be successful and therefore a high attrition rate.  Can do for other fields like real estate, life insurance agents, massage therapists, cosmetologists, and others.  They’ve spent hundreds of dollars to become certified, why not invest another $200-300 to learn how to attract business specifically for their field?

  • Medical billing professionals can start a patient advocate service – use your knowledge to help patients understand their medical bills from hospitals and doctor’s offices, why they owe the money that they’re being billed for, or why they actually DON’T owe the money that they’re being billed for since many offices do, at times, have erroneous charges and don’t take them off. Can also help negotiate settlements for legit bills/balances that are owed, etc. Act on behalf of the patient’s needs, be completely on the patient’s side, not the provider’s side, unless it’s a legit charge/bill. runs on a StudioPress Premium Wordpress Theme
