When Andrea Anaya started out, she was a struggling young mother. At only 22 years old, she was in a bad marriage and transcribing medical reports from home to pay the bills and care for her one-year-old daughter. In her very limited spare time, Andrea began hand writing her original, 2,000-page medical transcription training program.
Andrea officially launched Career Step by selling the first copy of her medical transcription program in 1992. She had persevered in creating the program because she wanted to provide other moms who were in her same situation a way to work from home. After working as a medical transcriptionist for years, she had learned first-hand of the industry’s lack of an affordable, easy-to-use, and experienced-based program. Andrea’s program was designed to fill that need and provide others with the opportunity to gain the skills needed to work from home as medical transcriptionists.
Over the years, Career Step has grown into one of the leading online healthcare education companies,now offering not only a Medical Transcription program, but also a Medical Coding and Billing program, along with a few smaller continuing education courses. All of Career Step programs are offered entirely online, making the school a great choice for those who want to study at home to work from home. Read the rest of this entry »

About a year ago, my husband and I moved his business home, and I joined the team. It was an interesting transition initially. He learned how to work from home (I was a work-from-home pro), and we both learned how to conduct business, together, and essentially be together 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have had our ups and downs, but we’ve survived for 12 months, and I think we are finally starting to get the hang of it.
Here are seven key lessons we learned about working from home with your significant other:
1. Assess each other’s strengths, define roles, and divide and conquer.
We each have definitive strengths. I am more organized, more creative, and have a looser work style. He’s more regimented, has more product knowledge, and is really good at solving production problems. So, when we started, we agreed on which one of us would be best to tackle the critical tasks of our business, and we divided the work and got busy. We each know enough about what the other person does to cover for each other if either one of us is out, but for the most part, we stick to the things we are good at and stay out of each other’s way.
2. Set some money rules.
We did some restructuring of our business’ finances and looked at a few different lending options. In the beginning, my husband would make decisions unilaterally, and I wouldn’t discover what he’d implemented until weeks later when I’d be reconciling our accounts. Read the rest of this entry »

My first experience with a blog was back in 2005. A friend of mine told me that I needed to check out this celebrity gossip blog called, Pink is the New Blog. After reading a few posts, I was hooked. Not only did I enjoy the daily gossip, but I loved the casual and personal nature of his writing. Reading this blog became my morning ritual and it soon got me thinking:
- Is this his full-time job?
- How is he making money from his blog?
- How did land big time TV interviews?
Fast forward to 2007.
After the birth of my daughter, I quit my full-time job as an RN Clinical Research Coordinator and became a full-time stay at home mom. But after nine months of play-dates, mommy and me classes, and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my brain. I looked online for different work at home jobs, but the majority of my time was spent weeding through scams and sifting through websites to find all of the information that I was looking for. It was at this time that I decided to create my own a monetized blog.
Fast forward to 2009.
After 15 months of doing research, creating content, and having a designer create a custom theme for me — I was finally able to launch in March of 2009. It took me almost three months to get my first advertiser and from there it has continued to grow, and is now my full-time career. While I’m unable to disclose how much I earn, I can tell you how I’m making money blogging and that yes indeed, you can make REAL money blogging! Read the rest of this entry »
