To date, many hundreds of Internet based income generating programs have been investigated to determine viability and credibility. As well, an enormous database is being built which includes information relating to medical, legal, and insurance issues endemic to this group of the US population.
Additional assistance planned consists of developing interviewing skills and resume writing, and utilizing the Internet to maximize personal potential. The results will be published in an e-book at no charge to the individual. The book is scheduled for release in early Autumn, 2008.
