  1. Hi, Thanks so much that really helps. I do appreciate this information more than you will ever know. Blessings success
  2. No, I didn't take on Medical as well. I stated that I USE to do and Work in the Medical Field and that is how I learned transcription-from attending and graduating Medical Office Management and Working for a Podiatrist in like 1993-but NO I have not taken on another transcription job-just this one and only lady. Thanks, success
  3. Hi, Thank you so much. You have a point there. She advised me today, since I enjoy sending out Motivational material every week on forums and blog postings, and uplift others, why not focus on Motivational Speakers-since I enjoy uplifting people as well and so forth. So, I thought that was a great idea and suits me-and so that is where Iam going with that one. But, I didn't realize how broad non-profits could be,.so great point..And I think that Motivational Speakers works. (smile) Iam happy with that because I never looked at it that way, which is great. Blessings, success
  4. Hello, Everyone I have a Heart and Passion to Help Others and Motivate People. Iam not happy unless I make someone else happy that day or week. I send out Motivational Quotes every Monday to Blog and Social Sites that Iam on. Iam currently working with a Coach and we are on this Niche Market thing-and it can get so frustrating when you think you have narrowed it down and someone else says No. I went with Non-Profits (she told me I had to be more specific as to which one), then I went to Small Businesses (I was advised which Small Business am I targeting and left it alone), then she told me I have a heart to serve-a Servants Heart (but what Market is out there for me to get involved). SHe told I was not Business or VA Material but she can show me how to be, but I mainly have a Servants heart. If, I new of a Market that suites me with this I will target it, but I feel like everytime I come with something-it seems to not be it. I enjoy Businesses that Help Others and I want to use my Admin Skills for that type of Market, Business, Organization, and or Individuals. I have thought about Speakers, Writers, and now Solopreneurs, and or Startups-and which ever I choose I have to be specific. It gets me down at times and discouraged, and I feel like quiting because I didn't realize it could be this difficult to focus months on end on one thing. If, anyone out there can assist in some ways in giving ideas of markets to zoom in on and google for info I wil, but my heart is Helping Others-I just want a market to that I can Help Others and they can utilize my Admin Services that is it. Thanks for your time, success
  5. Hello, Thank you both for your advice. I appreciate it alot. As I spoke to her the other day, I now have my very own first client (yes transcription). And she will be the only one for that matter. She is actually paying me enough to get up out of my bed without me lowering my price. I assisted her in realizing how time consuming this will be and how I pride myself on doing a professional and efficient job for her and not half stepping with the assignment. So, now Iam in the process of sending her the Retainer Agreement for her to review and sign off on and begin the assignment..Thank you so much, Iam glad that I did this type of work in the Medical field but do to it being time consuming I just never advertised it and nor promote it. Because she was a referral, I will do this time but needless to say she will be the only one I do transcription for. And, sorry about listing the price PattyD you are awesome as well-thank you both for assisting me in sticking to my guns and not lowering my rates, it means alot. I use to feel that if I didn't lower my rates I wouldn't get any clients but I did. It took me 9 months but it happened and Iam glad that it did. (smile) Thanks,
  6. Hello, I have a prospective client that was referred to me. As I do not offer Transcription as one of my services, I thought I will assist since I have the Medical Background exp. and education to do it, but again don't offer it as a service because its time consuming to me and more. Anyway my dilema is this: 1. What to charge for it? 2. She stated that she needs someone to transcribe for, and that she has "Youtube that are 10 mins in length and 3. She has Blogtalks that are 2 hours long. She is trying to get all this info transcribed and compiled into a book type format for the business that she is trying to do. And, her other words is: "While she do work a full time job, she also lives paycheck to paycheck." Now when people make these type of statements I feel that I have to lower my price of $xx an hour to meet there needs especially with this being so time consuming with transcription anyway. And further more I always used an Audio tape to transcribe, so I hope that transcribing this from Youtube and Blogtalk won't be that difficult. Any input and or feedback, ideas, suggestions, tips, and or advice will be very helpful. Thanks for your time,

Maybe you can say a few words here for those who are undecided. Debbie Lynn
  12. Iam like that also in regards to preferred target market. However these are the few areas of Attorneys I was looking to target for the General Administartion area to offer to them: Plantiff Attorney Business/Corporate Attorney Patent Attorney Personal Injury Attorney Criminal Defense Attorney Divorce & Family Attorney Disability Attorney I guess just focusing on one type wasn't enough seeing as how its so many types of Attorneys. Thanks for the feedback,
  13. Hello, Everyone I was wondering if anyone here is a VA for any Attorney/Lawyers??? Iam asking because years ago I use to work for 6 Attorneys. However, I have only some experience and knowledge in the area of working with them and enjoyed it. And, this is the niche that I want to pursue. I realize its all different types of Attorneys and I have my focus on a few-yet I was wondering: Do I have to go back to School in order to be a Virtual Professional for Attorneys?-so that I can offer my Virtual Services. I thought that I will have to start trying to take up Legal Assistant/Paralegal classes or something in order to pursue this target market. Any advice or input on this will be great. Not giving any legal advice just would like to offer my Virtual Services without going to legal school or something? Do attorneys even use Virtuals? is the next question. They are some busy people I must say..I even use to work for the Police Dept doing Administration Support Specialist work-and enjoyed that as well-just enjoy the Law, I guess. Its good to get into since the Laws are always changing. If, anyone is currently working the Attorney market as a VA-how is it going? Do you like it? Does it have its drawbacks? (if so what are they)..Do I have to go back to School and get certified for something in the legal area in order to do the Attorney targeted market? please advise! Thanks for your time and hope that everyone enjoyed there Thanksgiving !!
  14. Thanks Candy I understand completely. However, even just to know a bit for the U.S. and Canada would be great,if you can shed some light on the Subcontracting works.
