Working from Home as a General Transcriptionist – Interview with Lisa Mills

Work from Home as a General TranscriptionistTell us about yourself and your work at home journey. 

Over the years, I’ve had a variety of work at home jobs. I’ve worked as a freelance writer, sold antiques and collectibles on eBay, day traded on the stock market, and operated an online used book business. I’m currently working as a general transcriptionist, and I publish a work at home website, Work at Home Mom Revolution, for moms seeking work from home jobs.

Although my work at home journey began while I was still married, my need to work from home kicked into high gear when my husband and I separated back in the early 2000s. I desperately wanted to be home for my three girls during this tough time in their lives, and working from home was key to achieving that.

At the time, I had an online used book business, but I soon discovered that alone was not going to sustain me and my children. That’s when I began looking into transcription as a possible telecommute career.

How did you get into transcription and do you need any special skills or training?

I was taking online classes for medical transcription through Career Step and was doing well, but I had months to go before I would complete the course, and because of my change in circumstances, I needed to make money immediately. (more…)

3 Things to Consider Before Quitting Your Day Job

3 Things to Consider Before Quitting Your Day JobBy Angie Nelson

If you are trying to get your own business off the ground while still working away at a regular nine-to-five job, you’ll no doubt be desperate to quit your day job as soon as possible. While it can be extremely tempting to get focused entirely on your new business, quitting your day job at the right time is absolutely essential. Many people make the grave mistake of leaving too early, prompted by unrealistic optimism or a reckless willingness to take a major risk. Before you do decide to quit your day job and commit yourself fully to your own business venture, however, you should consider the following factors.

Your Responsibilities.

If you are living on your own, single and without children, then you are already better equipped to leave your regular job and make a full commitment to jumpstarting your own business than someone who has to worry about family and other major responsibilities. At least if you only have to worry about yourself, then you can take somewhat more of a risk. Also, the amount of money you will need to have saved up in case things don’t work out as quickly or as well as you would like is not as great. (more…)

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home By Holly Reisem Hanna

Back when I was in college, I worked for a telemarketing company. While the gig itself was flexible with it’s hours and it paid well, it totally exhausted me. More often than not, people did not want to converse on the phone (which I totally get), so I would have to deal with their anger, irritation, and lots of hang ups. Over time I dreaded going in to work. After college, I worked for Medicaid doing prior authorization for nursing visits and home medical equipment. Again I was on the phone for long periods of time dealing with disgruntled providers — no fun!

While a lot of work at home jobs are phone-based, the Internet has opened up a new breed of customer service that does not require being on the phone. In fact, live customer service chat is becoming more and more popular everyday. Some of these chat positions do require background knowledge of a specific area, and many of them do require you to type a certain number of words per minute, so make sure you read all of the criteria before applying.

If you want to work from home as a chat agent, here are 9 companies to check out.

Nature Unleashed: Unprecedented Support for Brand Partners

Nature UnleashedThanks to Nature Unleashed for sponsoring today’s post.

For Joe, Darren, and Kimberly – Cofounders of Nature Unleashed, it isn’t enough to say they want to help people create a path toward financial fulfillment, they are intent on living that promise every day in their approach to direct sales and in the commitments they make to their Brand Partners.

According to Joe DeSantis, CEO of Nature Unleashed, the team knew right away that direct sales was the channel for bringing the Anolyte product line to market. The direct sales model allows for the development of relationships and the sharing of stories and experiences, a driving factor in how people learn about this type of product.

The Nature Unleashed Approach to Direct Sales

The philosophy behind the Nature Unleashed direct sales approach was developed after a lot of discussion around not only the compensation structure of the program, but also the interaction and support of Brand Partners. From the beginning, the team felt Nature Unleashed would not be a company that pays for just recruiting. Instead, product sales drive the revenue model. (more…)
