Ways of Using Self-Employment to My Advantage and Resources I Have Found But Not Limited To Job Pages, and Internet Website With How-Tos

January 5, 2021

Instructions:

  1. Research one type of business per day, look into any resource you can find, leave an impression paragraph and a link.
  2. Make sure this is thorough since a business plan will come out of this additional to the Tough B, Inc. business.
  3. These must be jobs I’m qualified to do now, in the present, without attaining extra degrees.
  1. Internet Researcher –

https://www.dreamhomebasedwork.com/online-researcher-guide/

 Becoming an internet researcher is very easy, and requires being handy with Google.  I can research the Internet in my sleep, having done so since it was invented in 1993.  Only now I have the stability to seek a career in this-that can be added to my resume.  Internet researchers can find work at companies who hire them to do online research, especially if they have a specific kind of expertise.  Keywords include internet research, online research, work at home research jobs, internet/online research jobs as you begin by searching the Internet for jobs. I ran a search on internet research jobs, and I found some on Indeed.com.

I have known of https://aoir.org/, for a long time, or the Association of Internet Researchers, which has scholarships, and classes in the field, based on an email I got from them. They have a webinar or two on the subject of starting your own internet research business, even with one webinar for Online Investigative Research.

I applied at one Internet Researcher/Academic Writer at an Indeed.com job, since I logged in. This job is a three month long $20 an hour position at Career Blog, because I’m sure there are others out there. This is just a research paper file I’m working on. Ask Wonder is another such company, in which you have control over the number of research requests. Flex Jobs is a useless resource that some websites count as a useful one, and I used to spend $29.95 on it.

Wonder hires independent contractors at $15-18 an hour, as a general average since applicants have to have at least a Bachelor’s degree. At the extent I want to start my own researcher business as I tried to do in 2001, which means that this time around I know to set up and write a business plan. https://www.theworkathomewoman.com/internet-research/. Also, this sort of angle requires a social media presence which includes having a website. Finding clients involves using marketing techniques to sell your business. Here is a huge list of free resources on the work at home woman website, https://www.theworkathomewoman.com/free-resources-business/, because you have to own your own domain name, if you want to use a free option. As I already have a wordpress site, we should set up advertising my services, in order to gain clients, who are actually going to pay me something I’m worth for doing their Internet research.

  • Private Investigator/psychic private investigator:

I already took private investigator classes with Penn Foster.com, although as it is now, I’m still too unhealthy to do the externship with a private investigator that the school offers. Private investigators are private detectives if you will, only because they have the skill to investigate crimes, identities, businesses, occupation, or character of a person. I’m building my skill set right now by investigating my own health problems, and the doctors who saw me as a child, since I was in diabetic coma at 10 years old from not being treated with insulin. My mother not surprisingly, has a Munchausen by Proxy diagnosis, untreated mental health issues such as schizoaffective and OCD, and untreated personality problems that make me want to avoid her fight-picking stupidity. So I’m starting investigating/freeing myself from the low-income trap that my parents have me in.

I’m also wanting to start a private investigation firm, that allows my employees to use their psychic talent to investigate crimes. Getting a license involves having 2,000 hours of investigative work under my belt, not to mention passing a two-hour multiple-choice test. In California, I have learned how to become a private detective, and work 6,000 hours in three years, with paid experience at that. Also, 5,000 hours and an Associate in criminal justice is another way while 4,000 hours over two years with a bachelor’s degree in law or police science. So if I get a J.D. I will be able to fulfill a lot of the requirements, you apply for a PI license and pass an 8 hour “power to arrest course”, and a 14-hour course on carrying and using firearms, with 8 classroom and six range hours. If I had my way, I would substitute a taser or a staff weapon for a gun.

            You train under a licensed PI, attorney, repossession firm, public records

Researcher, or arson investigation unit. What doesn’t work is being a process server, public records researcher, or debt collector. The second step is to get fingerprinted in California. You have to submit California’s application packet, and pass the California Private Investigator Test.

And as for the psychic component of my work, I’ve read a lot of Sylvia Browne, Doreen Virtue, and Cyndi Dale.  Why? Because I’m gathering knowledge and trying to figure out how to be a stable mentally ill psychic. I also take Sarah Wiseman classes, and there are plenty of Udemy classes. I want other certifications such as my Qigong, Theta healing, and Reiki Level 2, 3, and Grandmaster certificates. I have other certificates in mind like a massage therapist, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbalist, and etc.  These certificates will be explored in the professional psychic category in this document. I need to train with a spiritualist church, training group, or private teacher to even begin getting a handle on psychic insight to be used in my law enforcement private investigation activities.

  • Blogger – Iriavp.com.

I need more blog readers, so this means coming up with content they would like to read.  It would seem I get the most hits when I write about business related subjects. I have a blog I update every day, during the week while taking a break on weekends, when I think I can recycle other writings that I’ve done during the week. My blogging is done in an hour, give or take that I write a paragraph of more than 100 words.  I apply at ProBlogger a lot but never get any job being advertised. I’m not going to settle for just any blogging job.  There are many ways of using a blogger blogging job give or take the economic situation, and the possibility that there are jobs out there.

  • Proofreader

I have researched the world of Internet proofreading time and again. Some jobs require a Ph.D., which I simply do not have. So I will try to find jobs that don’t require that. I can start my own proofreading business, I can start my own business on many levels. Proofreading is something that can be advertised on my blog as a service. I’ve calculated my start-up and ongoing costs of my proofreading business, as next to nothing save paying up for my blog $96 a year to keep it a paid URL. I already have a computer, I already have Microsoft Office, and I already have Word. My target market is other business owners. My proofreading business should fall under LLC, which I will have to form under Zen Business, which has passable state fees. I an Employee Identification Number, registered for taxes for Iria the Irrepressible. I do not have a business bank account or credit card, and I need to set up business accounting, and more.

https://howtostartanllc.com/business-ideas/proofreading#start

The Balance has an article about the pros and cons of starting a proofreading business, since it refers to deadlines being tight.  I’m wondering how to market my business, which is why I have ordered marketing books from the library.  I need some kind of job right now and I’m up at 3:00 a.m. on 8/5/20 to find a job, of any kind, so I can finance my existence, adding to my financial situation. Proofreading is something I can do, provided I prove worthy by passing a proofreading test. My proofreading/English grammar and spelling book is proving quite useful to help with this.  There are always Udemy, or Khan Academy free proofreading classes out there. Also, this website has a link to work from home proofreading job options. EditFast, FlexJobs, Gramlee, Kelly Services, Kibin, ProofreadingServices.com, Scribendi, Upwork, Wordvice, are all examples of proofreading websites.

  • Copywriter (My work for Textbroker.com)

There is another way to become a copywriter online, but I do not know what branding is, and I’m trying to figure out how to break into the business part-time.  I have to look for copywriting sites similar to Textbroker.com. I’ve applied as a copywriter, this list serves to remind me that I have many skills. I have a very hireable skillset here, if I could stop saying to myself nobody wants me, I will never be hired. I want to be hired. I know I can be hired. Copywriting is easy, it is something I did for Textbroker.com.

I applied at many copywriting jobs this morning, 8/5/20, only because I feel the       need to get a paid gig and an internship, totaling to around 15-20 hours a week. This file serves as a place to write notes in about how the search is going. I found an Udemy class on how to start your own copywriting business, a class worth $16.99. Indeed, my missing business skill is actually marketing, only because marketing is something I need to learn about, perhaps taking a class, also found on Udemy. There are many classes with more information in it than I need right now. I have a book called The Wealthy Writer, How To Earn a Six-Figure Income as a Freelance Writer. 

This valuable resource was found at Savers, is written by an Australian, and tells     of how to make this money. I’ve read it, or at least am almost done reading it. I’m trying to create handy resources for myself to make money with. As a copywriter, there are jobs out there. I can make a good living if I want to.  Textbroker had useful copywriting guidelines available, which I learned to follow.

I get two emails from Contena in two days, from Onboarding, which means they know I’m a great fit.  This is one way to earn extra income. So yes, this may be the start of a new job, a new way to make money, and a new way to gain experience in a writing job.  Contena is also a content writing job that I have plenty of past experiences I can write about.

  • Journalist

I’m a journalist for Vocal Media, since there are so many articles to write swirling around in my head. I’m working on my Drake Equation article just now because I’m needing to write this article seeing as it is coming out slowly and will be finished and posted by this Sunday. It is a complicated piece that will require slow work, as well as editing.  I need to edit the piece quite often. My blog has a journalism section only because it means that I write stylist pieces in that writing style.  There is money to be made as a journalist.  See Fact Checker. I’m finding journalist jobs on Indeed.

  • Due Diligence Researcher  

A due diligence researcher is someone who investigates a target company’s assets before making an acquisition. The investigative nature of the job is used to prepare the business owner to make an informed decision that enhances the quality of information that is available to the company making the decisions.  A company that is selling their equity has to be investigated to make sure it is worth buying. The due diligence researcher is a third party that investigates on behalf of a company that is being taken to market. The key questions a researcher needs to find for the company are, how do we buy?  How do we structure an acquisition?  How do we pay?  This investigation needs to include practices of process and company policies. The acquisition decision revolves around the principles of valuation and shareholder value analysis. There are 9 audit areas used to evaluate the situation: the compatibility of the business, the financial status of the business, the macro-environment audit, the legal-environmental audit, the marketing audit, the production audit, the management audit, the information systems audit, and the reconciliation audit. Any business being acquired needs to also feature cybersecurity as another means of analysis.  Due diligence as we have seen here, is research into the structure of how a company operates. The key is to figure out if any foreign official is involved in the company, along with what other illegal activity may be researched as happening during the time the research is being conducted.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Due_diligence

The due diligence researcher also researches company stock.  A broker-dealer conduct due diligence on a security before selling it, since a due diligence researcher wants to know how much revenue a company is making so that their client can have that information at hand.  Profit is calculated by dividing its net income by its revenue. The researcher needs to also look at competitor industries to see what the company being researched has in terms of its competition.  A projection of the future earnings growth of that company needs to be made.  The company balance sheet needs to show its assets and liabilities to check the level of the companies’ debt, as well as accumulated earnings over time.  Due diligence is a complicated field and I’m wondering what kind of job training is out there for it.

https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/duediligence.asp

There are actually due diligence courses out there. Udemy has 600 due diligence classes alone.  They have classes on how to buy a business, how to acquire a business and how to sell your business. It’s worth asking Marky how to find due diligence classes.  Some classes are in the thousands, and wisely I think I can’t afford it.  I will eventually find classes that are worth taking, with maybe using Youtube as a resource.

  • Writer

I write both fiction and non-fiction.  This is a way to make time-delayed money although writing on the Internet for the Internet can work to make money also. I have to send out my work to publishers.  I also write articles for Vocal Media, and Hub Pages. These articles could make money depending on number of views.  I can’t get my readership up on Vocal Media, but Hub Pages has options on how to get good article scores.  I have a list pages long of articles I can write for various magazines online.  I can write books under my actual name, and when I get my MD I will be writing more books, although getting my MS will also be about writing self-help books.  For now, I have fiction rattling around in my head, multiple ideas, and I want to get stuff done, but I find I only have so much energy with my current set of health problems, like Mr. Hernia. This means I have to press on finding a job as a copywriter/writer/proofreader/editor.

Cayla did say find a job as a proofreader, which I have tried to do but sometimes fell short of.  I’m working on finding myself a compatible job.  I have many options for self-employment gigs, all I need to do is market myself better, only because I don’t know much about marketing.  Actually that is a huge weak point I need to fix. I have books on marketing like Marketing for Dummies, and another book called Mastering Your Small Business Marketing.  All of my self-employment ideas mean one thing, have an ability to work for yourself whenever you want. 

  • Ghostwriter (working for Personal Trainer AJ)

Ghostwriting is another way I have of making money, because ghostwriting is about writing as though you are the actual author but you aren’t and you don’t get paid for being an author.  Guru.com and Upwork have ghostwriting jobs.  Ghostwriting can be a self-employment rap because my words can be attached to someone else’s words. I’m going to find myself a job as anything on this list, which I can get done. I’ve seen these jobs on Upwork so it would be useful to buy connects with the stimulus check.

  1. Editing

I type in Editing into Indeed and get a bunch of copywriting jobs. Editing or becoming an editor is one way to use my Bachelor’s, in particular if I want to be a self-employed writer or editor.  But then again I could wind up a managing editor although I have little experience with managing. I’m looking for contract jobs for everything since I have to do an income report with my tax return. As an editor of my own work, I know what that involves. When I edit, I destroy my previous wording of something I have written, in order to rearrange everything.  As an editor, I know what I’m doing with my own work.  Other people would listen to me. I’m getting ideas together for my own Vocal Media pieces, and I am going to start a Hub Pages piece today.

  1. Content Writing

 Elna Cain has this blog she wrote. Content writing can imply that the writer is responsible for articles to write for a company with either your byline or someone else’s.

https://elnacain.com/blog/

  1. E commerce writing

There are some Indeed jobs available in this category. Ecommerce is a way to tell customers something about what they are buying. It is a blurb underneath a product link online. ECommerce tells the world what your brand is about, and why someone should buy it. This kind of writing style can boost sales, through using tone to enhance word choice. Copy can improve website sales. Words must reflect how great your product is, but not provide useless information, as you have to stick with the facts, ecommerce is about writing up something useful for a product launch using magnetic headlines, to draw readers in. Ecommerce writing is difficult to develop as a skill because it takes a long time to according to this blogger: https://sleeknote.com/blog/e-commerce-copywriting

  1. Grant Writing

A grant writer is someone who gathers information about a possible grant, and then goes and collects money for organizations.  I have my own nonprofit to worry about, called WeHelp.  It is in my head for now, and it’s rattling around in there.  Grants are easy to get when you write compelling grant copy.  Yes, I have ideas for many things rattling around in my head. Grant writing is something I need to take classes to learn. I’m looking at Udemy just to see what is out there. Udemy has classes like Grant Writing for Non profits and Freelance Writers, Grant Writing: Keys to a Successful Proposal. Comprehensive Grant Writing for Beginners: 7 simple steps. It has a Grant writing full course, and basic grant proposal writing for Non profits, all in the affordable $12.99 range. http://www.udemy.com.

Here is another link https://elnacain.com/blog/grant-writing-jobs/, about how you can break into entry level grant writing, which is something I need o to do.  With grant writing all you have to do is follow the directions, since not following the guidelines for the application is something that makes a grant proposal fail.  Proofreading is also a necessary part of navigating the madness that is grant writing. Education grant writers work for schools, and they ask for equipment, new staff members, or school building improvements. Environmental grant writing is done to help protect the environment, making an effort to conserve habitats. Health grants are used for people in quit smoking programs or other addiction programs. Housing grants help low-income families find housing, while other grant writing programs try to provide homeless with food, shelter and hygiene products. Animal welfare grants involve pet maintenance education, pet shelter safety, and preventing overpopulation. Art grants cover dance, music, performing arts, local arts, events, literature, and the visual arts such as a Latin dance center, which is also covered under community development. Human and civil rights grants help people with disability rights, racial and gender equality, justice systems need to reform, and ways of making sure young people are not incarcerated as much. Grant researchers are available to help doctoral students complete their dissertation research. There are grants for international aid and business grants to get enough money an individual business owner needs to start a business.

Getting grant writing jobs only happens when you tell people although I have asked NAMI in the past, which makes starting locally difficult because they didn’t give me the time of day. Having an English degree can only help me. You can find grant writing jobs on many different websites, but Glassdoor didn’t work yesterday for some reason.

  1. Business Plan Writing/Marketing Plan Writing:

Business plan writing is something I’m interested in, that I do in the present constantly.  The table of contents is easy to work out but I lack some resources like knowledge on marketing. There is such thing as making a marketing plan, for a book or a business. I don’t know how to do this. I managed to fix Glassdoor using Scylla Andara 8/12/20 as an email since my other ones didn’t work at all. Give or take I’m finding remote jobs that I may or may not be qualified for. But anyway, business plan writing is a service that can be provided although I feel compelled to finish all my business plans first. I have to work on my entertainment ideas, only because I have many of them.

  1. Legal Writing – Court Reporter

I want to get a paralegal degree before I get my law degree so I can have that under my belt. I’m interested in the paralegal program at De Anza, which is now  online now and will be for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19. I  will find it easy to take online class, business 18 at De Anza or Foothill only because that class is necessary for the business program at either school. A business administration Associates is useful so that would put me at three AA degrees. I need to get a business administration associates to get done MBA stuff, and I totally forgot about this desire.

This is the link to the Foothill College business administration program. Taking early accounting classes online would get a lot of those MBA prerequisites out of the way. I need to take business law 18 and business law 19, because that is a great pre-law class anyway besides being a class necessary for my MBA. The  De Anza paralegal certificate is fully online now, because of COVID, so in which case it is something I could easily wind up getting. Legal writing careers require a paralegal background at least, and could transfer nicely into a J.D. program credits. A paralegal AA is 90 units total, while a business administration associates is something to have, in particular the marketing course certification. Total units necessary for a certificate is 34 units while the core business administration classes are 33 units, which adds up to a 60-unit total. School factors into these job titles, as I’m going to need it.

But consequently you can get into legal writing as a career, and even certified    court reporting, which is something else I need to look into under this category.  I looked up a legal writing Youtube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp3TVm-rtKs

And anyway, there is also such thing as a court reporter in this category, which is      why I added it onto this list.  Court reporting is verbatim transcription,  something I have bare-bones skill in from training with Transcription for Everyone and having some experience with Rev.  A court reporter has to be 18, with a high school diploma, who has completed a court reporter educational program. Court reports have to pass a state test where you can transcribe 200 words per minute, with a 97.5% accuracy rate at the minimum. There is also a dictation and transcription part of the exam. Here is a link to a blog

https://www.jilioryan.com/blog/steps-to-becoming-certified-court-reporter-in-california/. I found this and it discusses various steps to take in order to become a court reporter. California has a series of court reporting schools I would have to go to. Court reporters must have 660 academic hours and 2,300 machine hours, The licensing exam has a filing fee of $40, a certificate fee of $75, requires two current passport photos, 2 fingerprint cards, and a $49 fingerprinting processing fee for out of state applicants. You have to take a dictation and transcription, and a written examination in California with a PSI testing center in Santa Clara. You then can look for a job with the California Court Reporters Association, which can help you find a job in the court system, either with the Supreme Court, Courts of Appeal, or the Superior Courts. You need to maintain your California license, and the salary could easily be $118,000 a year for those certified, who have experience.

  1. News Writing

To become a news writer, I have had to say I need to get Bachelor’s in psychology- and anthropology, and journalism as a minor, and film and television. At the very least an associate degree is an equivalency degree. I already have an AA in anthropology; having decided it is easiest to get a Bachelor’s in that first, while pursuing transferable credits in psychology. But anyway, to become a news writer, I would have to enroll at San Jose State, and take their newspaper class.  I’ve taken at least three journalism classes, but that is not enough for another bachelor’s let alone a minor.

Writing news is a specified type of writing that delves closely into facts.  Writing has many different sub groupings like technical writing versus news writing.  We have to add technical writing to this list.  News is supposed to be in the second/ third person not using the pronoun “I,” which is first person.  I am interested in journalism, because it fascinates me and is not boring.  I also got interested in this field because of Smallville and anything Superman related anyhow.  I’m trying to figure out how to get this list done.

I’m looking at how to become a journalist in this respect, I have a Bachelor’s, which is about English and creative writing, but this website says to get another one. I had long suspected this.

  1. Resume Writing

  A new field in some ways, I’ve written my own resume more than once but can I write a resume for other people?  I have applied at every resume-writing job in sight.  There is always the option of getting into business myself, with Fiverr like it says here https://www.thepennyhoarder.com/make-money/professional-resume-writers/.  I could help friends with their resumes, writing glowing compliments, good things, and in general making them look fabulous. I could find a job as a freelance resume writer, making $10-$12 an hour. In this article, a company called Resume Genius is highlighted as a good way to get started.  This website is worth visiting to see what is actually going to happen with this.  Freelance writing.com is another possible starting point because Craigslist has a small business ads section, which might prove fruitful. After visiting Resume Genius, on 8/16/20, I see that it is about how to write a resume on your own without help.  The article made it sound like it was a way to get someone else to write your resume for you.  That is misleading.  I think I need to log back into Fiverr just to make sure that I can put resume writer on my list of services I provide. I found Freelance writing.com, which I need to set up an account for. There is a way to get certified as a freelance resume writer, https://www.freelancewriting.com/telecommute-careers/freelance-telecommute-resume-writing/. This article says to register on Elance, and I need to add this offering to my Upwork, and even Linkedin has some resources, for recruitment agencies that hire freelance resume writers.

The website, the Work At Home Woman has an entry about resume writing. The National Resume Writers Association is mentioned as a resource, Boardroom Resumes, FlexJobs, RiseSmart, Talent Inc., and Upwork are cited as resources to begin look into opportunities.  There is a way to choose a niche in fields I’m interested in like legal resume writing, or healthcare.  This page is https://www.theworkathomewoman.com/resume-writing/  stating that you need to start a website that will showcase your portfolio featuring other examples of resume writing. You have to market any business in order to be successful, only because marketing tells people your business exists.  Seeing as I got myself books on marketing, I’d better read them to get it through my head how marketing works. This is a glaring weak spot of my entrepreneurship skills, so investing in resume writing conferences, or webinars may help me gain a foothold into the business.

  1. Quiz and standardized test writing jobs

Looking for a job in this niche field proves difficult as it is right now with coronavirus, mass sickness, and all the stress floating around the planet right now.

Time 4 Writing.com teaches children how to write with many classes available.  I found an Indeed link to test writing jobs https://www.time4writing.com/standardized-testing/, but here is the link of Time 4 Writing before I forget. I found a link to ACT test writers, which is found on ACT.org https://www.act.org/content/act/en/working-at-act/item-writers.html. At the very least this stuff does work, and Sarah Behling does do test question writing from home.

Another web page I found is the Side Hustle Series, https://www.budgetsaresexy.com/standardized-test-question-writer-job/, which says that you shouldn’t count on the income from standardized test writing. The major testing companies I should apply at are highlighted in this link, https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/schools/testing/companies.html. They are Harcourt Educational Measurement, CTB McGraw-Hill, Riverside Publishing, and NCS Pearson. This is the website for Pearson, https://www.pearsonassessments.com/. This is the website for Harcourt, https://www.hmhco.com/classroom-solutions/assessment. Here is the CTB McGraw-Hill https://www.mheducation.com, and then Riverside Publishing, https://www.riversideinsights.com/.  So anyway, more research is necessary as to how to register as a test question writer for these tests.

  1. Greeting Card Writing

Blue Mountain is about writing new, original greeting cards.  It was started 40 years ago, and it pays $300 per poem.  I have submitted my work in the past. They pay between 12 and18 months.  Calypso Cards pays $50 per idea, and I’m under the impression they pay faster than Blue Mountain. Oatmeal Studios has submission details, under the writer guidelines link. Here are the writer guidelines… https://www.oatmealstudios.com/html/pages/write-guide.php, although pay is not mentioned.  RSVP has its standards here, http://www.creativersvp.com/reservations/, and I haven’t found any relevant contact information. Smart Alex demands PG humor but pays $50-$75 per submission. Viabla submissions happen within seasonal guidelines.  http://www.marianheath.com/links/Submission_Guidelines.pdf. Other options include Card Gnome that pays $10 or 5% of the card, in a check, while The Greeting Card Shop also offers a similar service, because you get 24 cents for each card purchase.

  • Ebook writing

Ebook writing can come in handy as a career choice, as my first novel is already an eBook.  I’m working on a psychic attack book that could wind up an eBook, as I want to make simultaneous submissions to Llwellyn, the pagan book publisher. Ebooks are saved under specific file formats such as Adobe PDF, EPUB, MOBI, which doesn’t support audio or video, AZW for the Kindle-e reader, ODF, and IBA which comes from Apple iBooks supporting sound, video, images, and interactive elements. I’d be writing topics for the pagan audience, and I could publish my Lazarus books first as eBooks and then submit them to Llwellyn. Now that is one way to make quick money. I already have 2 full chapters ready to go and I’m working on Chapter 3. Lazarus is also the name I will be lecturing under to keep my pagan stuff separate from my business stuff.  The book has to be converted into a PDF file, which is why you need a landing page for your book.  I can then advertise my book on my blog. Here is a new idea, interview Marcia Pickands, author of The Psychic Self-Defense Personal Training Manual, which I’m reading/citing in the Psychic Attack book.  I’m not going to start flipping through all my books and citing stuff until I finish all the chapters filled in with the writing.  I plan on starting heavy editing this winter, if I can hold out that long or somehow get more productive after hernia surgery.

  •  Article Writing – Vocal Media and Hub Pages/major publications

Trying to write and publish is hard, yes, some people have made note of that.  The writing business is a hard business to be in, but I’m in the right business.  My Vocal Media pieces are out there, so are my Hub Pages pieces, but not many are making money for me right now.  Hub Pages functions in a specific way, moving around certain cells that contain the writing you can copy into it.  I paste Vocal Media one paragraph at a time so my computer doesn’t overload.  I also feel that writing for major publications is something I could get done, while getting well paid for it.  I keep a list I have called the 2020 Submission Tracker that I keep on USB.  It contains a list of articles I’ve submitted to publications.  I submit queries and that goes on this list.  Vocal Media submissions that are accepted goes on the list, whether it is accepted or not.  Hub Pages accepts a variety of work from various publications. I have a list of publications to write for and a top 10 list of possible article writing topics.

  • Fact Checking

Fact checkers are someone who works in the research department of magazines or for television news shows.  Their job is to confirm all the facts in a story, such as the subject’s age or what they’ve said. The details have to be checked without watering down the story. A fact checker also fixes spelling, grammar, and punctuation, along with historical information, data, and not to mention identities of the people in the piece. Fact checkers get paid based on years of experience.  Fact checkers need at least a Bachelor’s degree in English, not just only a high school diploma. Fact checkers talk to sources to confirm the information, while also needing to know some basic math. Internet search skills are a plus, as is attention to detail since details are the bread and butter of a fact checker.  The keyword “fact-checker” doesn’t always work on Indeed.

report job

If you require alternative methods of application or screening, you must approach the employer directly to request this as Indeed is not responsible for the employer’s application process.

This is the job description, which I found interesting enough to respond to, even if there is no salary.  If I have to buy something, I bow out. My life coaching niche should be spirituality and general wellness. Then I need to find a training program such as the International Coach Federation.  Earning a certificate such as a Professional Certified Coach certification requires 500 hours of coaching experience of which 450 must be paid with at least 25 clients. The Master Masteries Coach designation from the ICF, provides applicants with a series of tests that demonstrate the candidates’ existing knowledge of coaching principles. A business classification can be set up, such as Limited Liability Corporation, or Corporation designation. You also need business insurance to even begin to strike it out on your own.  Going to conferences, advertising life coach services, and establishing an online presence are the next steps necessary to take, to become a self-employed life coach.

Life coaching certificates can be found on Udemy, and they can be taken in order to have proven certification. I have life experience and work experience enough to become a life coach.  Getting the interview I got today is just dumb luck but necessary to explore the field further.  I would take notes after the interview.  There are different kinds of coaching certifications that you can earn from a teaching organization, because accreditation is not required.

  • Health Coach

Becoming a health coach requires at least a Bachelor’s.  I also have life experience with many a different health problem.  I know someone who says I give good advice about these scenarios anyway, good, and truly knowledgeable medical intuitive advice. Health coaches are everywhere these days.  Some have an MD background like I want but others do not necessarily have that, if they are a practicing medical intuitive, also called a medical medium. Some companies like https://www.integrativenutrition.com/health-coaching, offer a comprehensive nutrition, coaching skills, and business development training package. Health coaches offer guidance to us so that we get to a specific place in our health. Health coach is a job title, found on Indeed.com, which I’m going to search now. I find 602 jobs, some of which require a mental health Master’s degree, which I do not have yet.  Some of these jobs are virtual and some may even require only a Bachelor’s Degree. I can have some fun applying for this.  I applied as a Life Coach using the one-way video interview.  I have to get my degrees in psychology before I even begin to work as a health coach, I need an associate’s, a bachelor’s and a master’s.  Eventually I will have that Ph.D.

  •  Bookkeeper – knowledge of Quickbooks

  I have experience from a long Work 2 Future class in 2017, Quickbooks, having taken Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced in one month.  To further my experience, I need to take a lot of accounting classes for my business administration associates. I still don’t feel I have a full understanding of Quickbooks but I can learn it at home for my own business if I can ever afford a new computer. I’m not sure I feel comfortable with Quickbooks until I know how to use it for my own businesses, only because I took that one Work 2 Future class, while in the present, I can look into other online classes.

  • professional psychic/energy healer

I have the talent of claircognizance, and every day there is a new idea coming into my brain.  I can make sense of it now, in the present only because I’m treated.  My brain is not running at lightning fast speeds anymore.  I get things, I can understand what is going on around me, I can also read for people. I can learn enough Reiki to heal people, since I can also heal myself.  There are many jobs whose requirement is a Bachelor’s in English, only because there are also many roads to self-employment.  This document serves as an exploration of this situation.  I’m starting to build those roads to take since I need to narrow the irons in the fire down to a few. I need to focus and specialize.  A psychic coach is a common career at this point in the 21st, I have to start my own website to see if I can get business that way.  As has been pointed out by SCORE, I need a normal job, that I can stay put in for a year.  I can also buy insurance because the Affordable Care Act was not repealed.  If I can pay my own self-employment insurance, and 401K, I will be fine financially in months. I have other clairs besides claircognizance, see pamphlet for more information.

  • motivational speaker

As it is, I feel very unmotivated at 6:16 a.m. on August 27th, 2020.  I try to motivate myself but my blood sugar average is high, and I feel depressed.  I’m trying to keep myself stable, here, but it is hard.  But now that I have looked at my latest Greyschool grade, seeing as it is 100% and that perks me up.  Waiting around for the grade was worth it.  I went to Toastmasters in Mountain View for three years, from 2013-2016 when I had my knee injury. I can motivate myself and anybody else.  This would be a great self-employment position provided I get speaking engagements. When I become CEO, I will be an on demand motivational speaker who can earn money from these engagements.

  • Fact Checker

Assuming magazines hire fact checkers still the thing is that newspapers will hire article writers or researchers. The job requirement is that I have at least a Bachelor’s, which I have.  There is no reason not to hire me because of my disability. I’m searching on Zip Recruiter today.  I suppose individual magazines could be offering a proofreading job to someone.

  • Herbalist/Gardener/Home farmer

I want to start my own herb garden, vegetable garden and home farm capable of growing corn in a small space, using a variety of inventions to do so.  I’d sell this product on Amazon seeing as it has to go on the 2020 business plan list.  I also want to grow witchcraft protection herbs to sell to people in the pagan community. But anyway, that’s supposed to go on the post 2020 business idea list which is somewhere.

  • Literary agent

I’m sure Udemy has stellar courses on how to become a literary agent.  With this stimulus check, let’s not overdo courses but let’s enroll in one.  A literary agent is all about being self-employed, with finding your own clients. The salary is $31,000 for a literary agent but it can also be up to $59,000 a year.  People in San Jose who are literary agents also make $67,000 a year.  I’m a be my own boss sort in everything.   I like firing the boss, I prefer to be my own boss. I don’t need an MFA to become a literary agent but many jobs I have found in the field of publishing require one.  This is another have my own business sort of field. If only I knew more writers…

  • Personal Assistant –

A freelance personal assistant is one option, or also called a virtual assistant.  There are many jobs available right now for this type of field.  I want to be a self-employed personal assistant because of wanting control over my time. I’d rather be hired for a day to do various tasks, as opposed to hired by a company for a length of time.  I want my jobs to be varied and I want to be hired by other writers. Yes, I should update my linked in to show that I’m hired as a personal assistant to writers.  They will teach me the ropes of finding literary agents and I could just as easily be hired as a personal assistant to one.

  •  Entrepreneur/Business Life Coach  

I sense that Udemy may be cheaper for classes than SCORE although SCORE is useful too.  I want to become an entrepreneur and business life coach since I’m able to do both. At least when I have business experience I can help mentor other business people.  As far as that goes, I have business ideas crawling out of my ears. I have so many ideas I can’t keep up with it. That is the life of a claircognizant, which I want to use in my other business ideas to help people.  I have many ideas that I have to start narrowing down at any rate, and I have business ideas going on a business idea list for 2016-2020. I have to start working on my business ideas for the psychic training laboratory.

  • transcription, medical and legal

There are perfectly sound transcription courses on Udemy at accessible prices.  The stimulus check and any extra income this month made as a personal assistant/virtual assistant have to go to that.  Medical transcription is a complicated field and Career Step has it, along with Penn Foster as a subject you can take.  Legal transcription is even more heinous and will require a class to be taken on Udemy big time.  A lot can also be learned from Youtube videos.

  • Technical writing

Technical writing can also be learned from an Udemy class or Youtube.  I’m trying to build multiple streams of income here during an enormous pandemic.  These are trying times.  Yes, I know there is a brief technical writing program at San Jose State that is three classes.  I can enroll in, with three classes I need that must be filed under the Excel file of academic path.  Technical writing is once again, a very easy field for me to gain experience with.

  • Udemy classes- teaching

I have major ideas for Udemy classes on psychic ability and mental illness.  I don’t have a podcast yet, but I will only because I want to be able to talk about my genetic disability in the podcast.  Udemy leaves ample room to teach other people my skills, in particular to have a class for other claircognizants.  But I need to take Cayla’s class consistently first, so this will be quite a development process. This process will not be ready until 2021, or 2022.

  • Acting

I have martial arts TV shows marching through my head.  I mean another TV show along the lines of Xena Warrior Princess could be produced, in the same universe, only with different, younger actors. I have martial arts movie ideas too.  Acting will be easy since I do not look a day above 20 even if I’m like almost forty, with people constantly mistaking me for generation Z all the time. When they discover my real age, they flip out.  Wow.  Yes.

  • Weather girl

I can get myself an anchor job with local news stations.  I don’t watch weather reports as much anymore, but I need to put myself in such a position.  Although I worry about my skin problems, and my health problems in general, as to how I can do this.  I know there are books in the library about film and television jobs, acting, and etc. I need to start reading books on the industries I’m interested in getting into, and planning my career/use of a BA in creative writing, as needed, which is why I feel I need the whole BA psychology, anthropology and film and television.  With school being online in this brave new COVID-19 world, I’m going to be able to do a lot of class online in the near future.  School is online right now, and may be for the foreseeable future until there is a vaccine, or a way to contain the virus through mask wearing that average people don’t want to do.

  • Director

I know that I want to study TV show directing and to an extent, movie making.  I want to be able to produce my own movies that I have some twisted ideas for.  Director jobs are few and far between right now only because of the way COVID is messing with the world.  But I did take three cinema classes in college just to learn about the business. I wasn’t stable with the brain chemicals long enough to stay put in cinema school, since I know that my academic work goes bad the second I skirt to unstable. There are online bachelor’s degrees in film that I can take in the present although I think I need to be in a San Jose State film program. Eventually I will go back to school.

  • Producer

I’ve also contemplated becoming a film producer.  I’m good at working as a team, I may have a future in this career but I need to be stable, healthy, and well to even begin to make this happen.  I want to put myself in mental health rehab, damn it.  I need to.  A producer is a manager of sorts, who is involved in every stage of the production process, which is why I need to get a film and television Bachelors and eventually an MFA with some film classes at the master’s level. I can find Indeed producer jobs in San Jose, CA just by typing in producer.

  • Anchor

I have always been curious in becoming my own Youtube anchor on my own show.    I have some ideas as to what that show would look like, give or take I make it comedic.  I’d need help with setting this up, given that Mountain View has its own television studio, accessible to many.  I’m sure San Jose may have a local television studio to use also.  But I’m afraid of being the one in charge, of people, since nobody listens to me anyway. I need that film and television AA/BA.

  • Talk show host

A talk show host on Youtube could be my start into the field in general although I know how dad feels about me having this sort of job, I can’t hack it.  Whatever. That’s just insecurity about my disability coming out.  I could make a great talk show host.  This requires more book reading at the library.

  •  Medical Intuitive

A medical intuitive is someone who can psychically know what a medical condition is.  I feel I’d be really good at this, even if there are limited how to guides.  I have to read more Carolyn Myss, or join this school, https://intuitionmedicineonline.org/.  I am working on stuff like getting certificates in healing which is an entirely different, separate list. Here is another option for training, see the energy healing careers list. https://www.thepracticalpath.com/medical-intuitive-training-level-1

  • podcaster

I have an idea for a podcast, my So-called paranormal life.  It will serve to educate others, and as an addition to my blog, about my paranormal experiences in my life.  I’m trying to sort out the psychic talent I do have, in my head.
