Grammarly Takes Spellchecking to a Whole New Level!

May 04, 2019

When was the last time your spelling and grammar were challenged? I'm talking spelling tests, spelling bees, high school or college level English classes. Maybe you had to take a test for a recent job application.

It's been a while since I've been full-on tested with no assistance from any applications but, I assure you, we are all being evaluated each and every day, whether it's our Facebook posts to a resume for a job to the copy you are putting on your website. The way you are writing, including accuracy in spelling and grammar, are a direct reflection of you and your business.

The hard truth is that we all make mistakes. While our English spelling and grammar skills can be considered "high level," we all can still use a bit of assistance.

I Jumped. Now It's Time to Soar!

Jan 26, 2019

Growing up, I never aspired to be a transcriptionist. I did not see myself as self-employed working from home most of my adult life. In school, we took those personality career quizzes. My results included garbageman/waste collector and teacher. I laughed and thought, “You’ve got to be kidding me!”

Yet, reflecting back, I loved being a teaching assistant at the elementary school while in high school as well as helping classmates when they struggled with high school math classes. (Although... I could have used some help with History!) While I never had the desire to homeschool my boys, teaching is something I do enjoy - in my own way. I suppose it’s not simply about teaching, but about helping others.

In junior high, we had to pick a career and do research on it. I picked Administrative Secretary. I remember how excited I was, the thought of working in an office doing all the things I thought I’d love to do. My dad was livid! “Why would you want to...
