Ever thought about making millions from the internet? Well one guy made a cool million dollars from starting an online forum from his apartment. Well let’s meet Mr. Edward Soltan who started an online medical records forum which dedicates itself to electronic medical records otherwise known as EMR in the medical field.


Mr. Edward Soltan started by putting together this forum so that it would help with the tech side of electronic medical records. Electronic medical records lets doctors’ offices keep track of a patient that comes to their office and the medical history of the patient.

Small doctor’s offices had a hard time understanding the setup of the software and hardware for the use of electronic medical records. So
The forum was a basic setup for questions and answers on problems related to EMR software setup.

Soon after Mr. Edward Soltan setup the online forum he had so many hits to the forum that the server had crashed. He had the forum back up and running within a few hours. He estimates that he spent about a few hours a day working on the forum. Creating new boards on the forum and being the administrator of the forum is some of the things Mr. Soltan had to work on daily.

The site was getting so many hits from doctor’s offices, clinics and hospitals. On top of the daily hits to the forum he was getting emails with offers to setup there EMR software at their offices or clinics.

The Forum pretty much ran itself. One Morning a investment firm MBL Capital contacted Mr. Edward Soltan and inquired about buying the site from him. They offered One Million Dollars but they wanted to do the deal within a week. Mr. Edward Soltan accepted there offer and sold them the site. So ever thought about making a million dollars by starting an online forum from home?
Just ask Mr. Edward Soltan. He now is a consultant as a IT Tech for small businesses.
