Freedom & Happiness

What makes us happy and fulfilled in our lives? It’s usually a collection of many things; our family, friends, hobbies, work. But work does not necessarily mean happiness and fulfilment in and of itself, and can mean the exact opposite for some caught in the rat-race in a job they hate, or with a controlling…

The Power of Gratitude

I often think gratitude is overlooked in the business world. It’s easy to get so caught up in your business when you’re really busy, that you miss how much just happens through kindness, and word of mouth. A case in point: five of our recent clients have come from people kind enough to pass them…

The Sweet Spot

It is very hard to be all things to all men (or women). Transcription as an industry covers just about every single industry and topic that you can imagine, with every conceivable accent. Whilst general transcription does cover most things, it doesn’t cover everything. You might do some medical or dental, but are not a…

Put a Little Love in Your Heart

Working from home as a transcriber, or in fact anyone working for themselves, we don’t have access to colleagues in the workplace to chat with, or the kind of Employee Assistance Programs that you may find in large companies if things go awry in your personal life.

The Happy Mushroom

Our first student has just completed Module 1 and provided the following feedback: “I have loved your Module 1! What I have especially liked is that you have ‘mixed things up’ – in the sense that there is plenty of variety and interest, both from the content and the dictation material. Certainly not one of…

Ikigai: The Why

Pronounced [ikigai] (ee-kee-gah-ee) is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.” The Why. You can see from our short promo video for Module 1 WHAT we’re doing with TranscribeRight, but today I thought I’d talk about the WHY. After the excitement and relief of launching Module 1, we have been heads down preparing…

To the Moon and Beyond!

We’ve launched! Sonya and I are so very excited to welcome you to TranscribeRight, our online home-based transcriptionist training course. It is the culmination of six months hard work, and 30 years combined experience running our own businesses before collaborating as a partnership and now creating this course. As you can see from our website,…
