  1. I am looking for free audio editing software which ideally works outside of a browser. Right now I need to do simple tasks such as cut out short sections and possibly join two videos together.
  2. Thank you, Veronica. I won't rule out WordPress.
  3. Hi Tawnya, Thank you for your suggestions. The developer of the template is no longer providing technical support. I have considered WordPress, but am resisting. I have previously worked with a WP site which was constantly having issues. It may or may not be due to heavy customization. I like the idea of being able to make changes offline myself and avoid the need to call in a developer often.
  4. Now that I've addressed GDPR and SSL, I'm looking into making my website responsive, i.e., easy to use from nearly any device. The template I purchased three years ago claimed it was responsive, but Google's Mobile-Friendly Test says otherwise. [ https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly ] It lists several errors with images, CSS, and JavaScript. I have tried every variation of the URL I can think of, but the same error messages are being generated. I'm about to tear my hair out. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated! The test page is sheriorloff.com/rwd.html Sheri
  5. Thank you, Mark. If you find another alternative, please let me know.
  6. Hi Danielle, Thanks for the reply. I am using my client's PayPal account--my husband's.
  7. On behalf of a client, I frequently make payments to people outside of the US. This month I noticed that PayPal raised their rates dramatically. For some countries, the minimum is $2.99. Is there a less expensive way?
  8. I began my VA journey with a focus on database management. One day, I was on this board looking for inspiration, and followed the profile of another member. That led me to her website, which contained a number of interviews with business owners. One of those interviews was about the transcription business, which I was only dimly aware of. My initial reaction to doing transcription was negative, but slowly changed over the coming days. It became a challenge to become accepted by a company. Not long after, I achieved my goal and happily got into the swing of things. Some projects are more enjoyable than others, but I generally learn something. That's the best part. Moral: be open-minded and flexible. You never know where it may lead you. Sheri
  9. I have been told by a bookkeeper that QuickBooks online does not backup your data files. Any truth to this assertion? Sheri
  10. I am very familiar with this business and agree that proper packing can help. However, there will be occasional delivery issues with any carrier. Your client might want to select which carrier to use depending upon past service and cost. Sheri
  11. Thank you, Tawnya, for the great suggestion! Wow, there are a LOT of choices there! Sheri
  12. Thanks, Danielle! I have always had better performance from wired devices and try to stick to those. There was a wireless printer where I worked in the distant past that was very temperamental. No matter how sweetly you asked or how many times you pressed 'print' it refused to do a thing. Until, of course, sometime during the night. Sheri
  13. Hi Mark, Thank you for the recommendation! You piqued my curiosity so I will also have to find out what a 'blue yeti microphone' is. Sheri
  14. I am interested in hearing current recommendations for headset / microphone combos. Anticipated needs include phone calls, listening to audios, and possibly recording/editing audios. Looking forward to your suggestions! Sheri
  15. You may be asked to combine existing disparate sources of data into a single database, i.e., one CSV file and one Excel file. List hygiene is part of database management (no one likes dirty data). You can use Excel, but Access is much better suited to database management. I have just started using LibreOffice which is a free suite and includes a module similar in function to Access. Hope this helps. Sheri
  16. A potential client who is in the digital publishing business needs to pay royalties to authors every calendar quarter. Can PayPal be used to pay authors inside and outside of the United States without incurring fees for the authors? Will fees be assessed to the publisher for these payments? Suggestions for any other method of payment is encouraged and appreciated. Sheri
  17. Thank you, Jodie! Good tip regarding mobile devices, too. Your help is appreciated. Sheri
  18. Hi Jodie, The files have been uploaded again for your review. Best wishes, Sheri
  19. Danielle and Julian, Your input is greatly valued. Thank you! Sheri
  20. Thanks for your replies. Mark, I would add to your observation that this also holds true of employers (or former employers). Those who are impulsive generally aren't good clients. Sheri
  21. I'm curious how much time you allow for the free consultation. In addition, do you call the potential client at the appointed hour or does he call you? Thanks! Sheri
