Loretta Oliver was kind enough to pass along a copy of her Transcription Crash Course for me to review. I’m a concrete person and when I read how-to resources I want to see details that people can actually take and use. The Transcription Crash Course was surprisingly fast and easy to read, and truly delivered a ‘crash course’ in starting a transcription business. At only 17 pages, it has everything from the minimum requirements (including a free digital transcription program to listen to the audio), an audio sample to test your skills, tips on setting your rates, and how and where to find jobs, work and clients.
The Transcription Crash Course comes with three bonuses; 10 Super Important Tips to Communicating with a Client, The Importance of Time Management, and How to Deal with Slow Seasons in Your Business. While all three provide important information, the last one, How to Deal with Slow Seasons in Your Business is the most valuable. It highlights the importance of staying calm and provides suggestions on what can be done pick up the slack when things slow down. Every business should have a manual about that!
One of the best features of the Transcription Crash Course is the price. At only $17 its well worth the price to get the facts and no fluff on working at home as a transcriptionist.
