Does anyone else earn extra money.....

I transcribe 200+ pages per month at $5.00 a page for a local hospital and write resumes as well. The resumes pay better and have over 7000 in my repertoire, however, my first love is MT.

Does anyone else earn extra money at home doing something along with MT work?
I need some ideas.  Fall is coming and I will have some extra time and getting burned out on MT.
Why only young mothers who want to earn extra?
Why this statement? What about us older ones? I just do not get that statement because I would think experience counts a lot in this job.
Can still do that and not help the Indians earn our money.
Yes because i will be spending money i don't have and won't earn anything with work decreasing
It's not a spambot, it is a person who has been posting to earn money, a program
on ForuMatrix where posters could earn money by posting, however, this person has taken the program out of context and not only will not be compensated, but the posts will be removed.  Our apologies for any inconvenience. 
My mistake, I am not thinking tonight, I actually make 11.5 cpl, clinic notes. I earn my money thou
extra money
I operate a computerized accounting service - bookkeeping, taxes, payroll.
HRBLOCK.Com has classes online. If your good in math, might be a good fit. Flexible hours, good pay. I have my own clients but have worked for them before. I plan to get an advanced certification to specialize in sole proprietors, partnerships, S-corps, etc. Just shi----n around, I can make $5000 during tax season. Before I had my baby, I made 14,000 during tax season.....Sky is the limit if you're a fast learner.....
Extra money
I did paper routes!
extra money on the side


My hands kill me just about every day now, and looking at my hands i have muscle breakdown and twitching, so i'd like to cut down on typing.  Want to find something to do on the side to earn maybe 1000 to 1500 dollars a month.  Was thinking about ebay, but i'm doubtful I could make that much, even though they hype up the advertisement by saying you could make 3000 MINIMUM.  I'm just desperate and feel like my hands are about to fall off.  I've spent close to 1000$ this year alone in keyboards, gloves, splints, doc visits, meds, changed my station around, hot soaks, cold soaks, exercises, stretches, vitamins. still my hands just sing every day esp at night.  So any extra money earning ideas you guys?  thanks

Anyone have any ideas on how to get some extra money? sm
I have been working a lot over the past several months.  I had gotten sick and missed some work so many months back.  Got behind on my mortgage, car payment, etc...I am almost caught up but it seems like the little bit more that I have to go, about 2k, I cannot get caught up.  My work is limited...Any suggestions?   I am so close to throwing in the towel, which is not good.  My husband is disabled. Help.
to "Need extra money"
I hope things work out for you. One more thing, don't be afraid to get help from local charities, churches, etc. They are there to help. Remember that ;-)

I've had a rough day so I'm going to bed soon. Take care and keep us posted on how things turn out.

Hang in there!!!!!!!
And she needs extra money, so the suggestion was warranted.
I do not get extra money for typing and supervising.. I get paid salary which means

I get to type the stuff everyone else has rejected!

Wwwowoooweeeiiieee.. lucky me and my 3 dollars an hour!! 

I thought the same thing. Justify the EXTRA MONEY they're keeping
You know full well if the foreign MT was the same price they'd quit looking there too. It's all about the money. Who's he fooling?
Can they do surgery extra fast? What do they do with the extra glove in the pack?
Extra shift or extra work
Has anyone taken on an extra job or shift with a new company for a just a few months to get out of debt or to be able to pay for something that is needed or wanted?  I am thinking about taking on another job to get out of a stressful debt situation.   I am just afraid I would be going into another stressful situation working more hours with the very busy family schedule I have.
Money, money, money, mmonnneyyy. Singing the Apprentice song.
Oh, I think I earn my keep!
I have worked a full-time plus a part-time job for the last 15 years. I would say I most definitely "earn my keep".

Listen, if you don't want to hear us "whining", stay off the boards, why don't you??
that is if you EARN under a certain amount,
after that you must pay taxes on all. The goverment certainly isn't going to be left out of our money!!
Are you saying that you earn 100k
You type just enough to earn $900/mo. The
How to get job that lets you earn only up to
You earn less with one space.

I make 7.5 CPL and earn over $4K monthly
Maybe to you that's not a decent wage, or maybe you're not as fast. I don't know. But this IS production-based work. So type more and earn more. I think I clear about 14,000 lines in a 40-hour work week and I bring TAKE HOME about $4K a month. To ME that's good money. Maybe I'm stupid. I know people that earn much more (are much faster than I) at 7.5 CPL. Call me dumb, but I think that's good take home.
Again, don't forget - Guru gets a cut of what you earn
When it comes time, i will match what they earn.
Steelers didn't earn one of the TDs nm
And you might earn another 1/2 to 1 cent more working
Doubt any way can earn more than the limit of
As far as I know you can earn up to a certain amount - you cannot exceed a certain percentage of the
salary you were making when you took your disability. I do not think it is uncommon to work as you could certainly not make it on disability alone.
What kind of retirement tells you how much you can earn?
I will start drawing from a pension plan this April - I have absolutely nothing saying I can or cannot make X amount of dollars a month. How did you get a retirement that tells you what you can make? This sounds strange to me.
right, taxes are paid in the state where you earn 'em...
since you work at home, you earned your wages in your state and pay them to your state.
Yeah, I earn 50k a year and I just bought a house for a buck!

Oh and I just got 25% of 28 million from a prince in Zimbabwe! 



Make money? I'm not making any money because of my decision. You read my reasoning
You can agree with me or not, but don't make false assumptions please.
You're working to make money, not to spend money.
These people should be ashamed of themselves taking advantage of people this way!
I also blew some money signing up with Quixtar... The only way to make any money is to bug everyone

you know into signing up.  I felt like a snake oil huckster.  I hated it.  I was flushing money down the toilet from the moment I handed over my money. 

RUN, do not walk away!  I do an entirely different side business now that I really love (in addition to my MTing, which I also love!)  Find something you're good at and that you truly love doing.  Then make a business out of it.  That's the best way to have a side business.  Selling discount toilet paper through Amway/Quixtar?  Not so much. 

The CMT exam is overrated. Don't waste your time & money. Use that money on
paid anymore just because you have it.  There are a few CMT cheerleaders that post to people like you but they are pretty well sucked up into that association.
Yeah, money, that's it. I paid $20.00 for my dog. Money is NOT THE ISSUE
walk him daily, play ball daily, he sleeps in my office daily while I work. Yeah, I got a lot of money, NOT HARDLY. And, my dog is HORRIBLY HORRIBLY ABUSED because he wears a collar around his neck. It's people like you that make me sick. I am done defending my use of the shock collar. I am going to continue with it and my dog will continue to be pampered , educated, fed, kept warm, and love me for everything that I do for him even when I remind him that his barking needs to stop. So, with that said, I will not respond to any more of your CRAP in reference to the shock collar.
Money is money and most people will do whatever it takes when in need. sm
if you do bring it to the attn of the office manager, why not offer her a raise to compensate. it is obvious she just needs or wants more money than your office is paying her. I agree, it is a free country and although it seems odd, unless you had it outlined in contract, she can work for whomever or whereever she pleases on the side. at least she is typing and not at a strip joint, lol. I see no conflict of interest, she has experience obviously in whichever field you are in and what is wrong with doing extra in that field. i agree with MYOB "nicely" and concentrate on your reports than looking at older reports and seeing who they are typed by.
So, you think it is okay for hard-working MTs to earn 7-8 cpl for their hard work?? nm
Editing is the higher skill. I earn more editing SM
because I'm able to produce more--if the company doesn't adjust the way production's figured down and down again to keep the account from going elsewhere (when that happened to me on EditScript with no explanation of why my income was dropping, I went elsewhere also).
extra help
maybe I should look into being a subcontractor.  Do you find this on the job seeker's board from time to time?   Thanks! 
I only do an extra cpl.
Unless there are a ton of STATs, it doesn't cause that much of a TAT issue.
Ditto for getting nothing extra for anything and not getting any better.

I do. I have an extra VoiceWriter but SM

not the modem thing - which is what will probably go! The LX-219 is cheap on ebay but the modem is not so cheap.

I have no backup computer but I there are other computers in my house that I could use.

What extra services...
I was wondering if any of you MTSOs, or MTs that work for an MTSO, offer any extra services to your clients? For example, do you do their envelopes and labels as well? Or anything else? Keeping in mind that you are not in the same town and that your employees are not in the office or even same state as you, lol. Thanks for any suggestions!

I think that is 0.03 per line extra. nm
I just said I DON'T have the extra cash.
However, I'm not going to shop there because what comes around, goes around. If I don't support the other small businesses in my area, they won't support my business or my husband's business.
have extra taken out of his but enough to pay 100% of last years...sm

So if your total tax bill for last year was $4000, you need to make sure by the end of this year that he has had $4000 (plus a little extra for fudge) taken out. Otherwise you will get fined. Probably easier to get it taken out of his than to do the extra forms to fed and state and write the checks and keep track and add it to your income tax form next year...

You have to pay extra to get the Dongle
A little thing that plugs into your USB so that you can use it unlimited times. I think that cost about $30 extra. That's why I did because I know for a fact that I'll need more than 3 installs.
TN - It may take a while to get here from TX, but I will make extra!!
