Amount of experence
« on: January 29, 2016, 12:00:50 AM »
Hello, I have been a medical billing and collections specialist for a little over two years. My experiences are with toxicology testing, doctor of osteopathic medicine, and plastic surgery. My job just recently laid me off and I was thinking of starting a home based billing and collections business. My question is how much experience is needed to start a home based business or does that matter?

I have seen home based billing companies start with less experience than you have, and they succeed, and others start with more experience than you have, and they fail. And everything in between, for that matter.

I really think so much is contingent on who you know when you are starting out, and good word of mouth, for referrals. If you read through the many threads on this forum about starting a business, you will see people who are asking the same question as you, and more questions beyond that, as they move through the process.

Best of luck to you, should you decide to move forward with your own company!

Great advice Kristin!  She is absolutely right.  Your success depends completely on how much effort you put in and how determined you are to succeed.  There is a TON of information in older posts that will greatly benefit you.....And you can always post new questions.  There is a wealth of knowledge in the members here.  :)

Hello giashan41

I randonmly stumbled across your post and was encouraged to see you were considering starting your own business with only 2 years of experience. I was encouraged b/c I'm in a similar spot and was just wondering how everything is going for you? I'm currently working for a small billing company trying to gain more experience and we recently got a new plastic surgery client.

In any case I don't have any specific questions just wondering how everything is going for you! Hope to connect...
