Medical transcription. You make your own competative money. It is pay by each letter and the average is 65 words per minute. A page is about $3.55. Most transcriptionists for the first years can only do 4 pages per hour. $14.20 an hour isn't bad. And my training only took 6 months for $1,500. After three or five years you can get a job that pays $30,000 to $50,000 depending on how fast you can go.
