None of us know what curve balls life has in store for us. If you or a loved one has found themselves in a situation where an unexpected diagnosis or chronic condition has altered life forever, why not look at transcribing?
People living with conditions such as fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, chronic anxiety, and cancer, to name just a few, often find it hard to find work that allows them to take time for medical appointments, or have downtime when it’s all just too hard on any particular day. Sticking to a rigid timetable of work may no longer be an option, but the distraction of work and that all-important income is still vital to a sense of well-being and security.
As a transcriber, working as a contractor, you can choose what days you work and for how many hours.
One of the things they don’t tell you when you are given a life-changing diagnosis is the feeling of loss and uselessness if you can no longer continue with your work. Transcription as a career gives you the ability to still “go to work” and be part of the workforce, but without the commute and with the flexibility to work it around YOU. General transcription covers so many different topics, you never know what will come across your desk. It’s one of the things that Sonya and I love the most about what we do, we are constantly learning new things. Life is never boring as a transcriber!
So even if a diagnosis makes your world feel smaller; if it means you can’t do some of the things you used to do, why not have the world come to you? Working safely at home, choosing your hours, getting paid. With our special offer of 50% off our entire course bundle, there’s never been a better time to turn those lemons into lemonade. Happy transcribing!
