Way, way, way back in 1999, I got started in the transcription industry as a subcontractor for a transcription firm. I've made mistakes along the way and learned some great tips & tricks. Now, I successfully work directly with my own clients all from my home office.
I know how overwhelming it can be to get started, all the questions, all the doubt, and I want to help you Build Your Own Transcription Business! It's not about teaching you how to transcribe, but teaching you how to build your own transcription business!
I am located in the Midwest (central time zone) where I live with my husband and youngest son, and my eldest son, daughter-in-law, and grandchild live close by. I love photography and watching movies. What I enjoy most about having a home-based business is the flexible schedule and working with some amazing clients and companies.
What I enjoy most about being a transcriptionist is, from day one, I have constantly been learning new and interesting things. It is like being in a classroom every day, always learning, both on the content side with the transcripts themselves as well as on the business side.
I was a subcontracted transcriptionist doing general transcription for a couple different companies until 2011 when I became a subcontractor for a court reporter transcribing depositions and court proceedings. In 2013, I branched out to begin working with clients directly. I have always found transcription work to be very educational, affording me the opportunity to learn about some very interesting topics, but I now have the opportunity to work directly with some very talented people and companies as well.
Testimonials are important, and I've had the honor of not only receiving some great testimonials to use on my own website but also have been mentioned in a couple of books as well as websites and podcast episodes.
Sharing things that I've learned is important to me, some of which I've shared on YouTube, and am excited to package it all up into a more concise course that can help YOU on your journey building your own transcription business!
