About Transcription Crash Course
Transcription Crash Course started out as an ebook and email course program to help others learn how to general transcription work from home. It’s been revised and added to several times over the years. After noticing some changes in the work from home landscape in 2018, I decided to make another revision to the program. After noticing an increase in the number of emails I received from folks who were struggling to get started working from home, I also decided to make the program free to everyone and put the information here on the site, as well as create a private Facebook group to take questions and talk things through on the days when things feel lonely and isolated in the work at home life.
About Loretta Oliver
I’ve been working from home since 2001. In the early years of my work at home career I did various things, but eventually I landed on transcription as my focus service to provide to earn an income online and take care of my family.
My start in general transcription was actually sort of a happy accident. I was doing data entry full time when a friend asked me to do some transcription work for a company that had some overflow work they needed help catching up on. I figured I’d try it out and make a few extra dollars for the month.
I ended up doing overflow transcription work for that company on a regular basis over a period of several months. It was enough to keep me transcribing, but not enough to be a full time income yet. Eventually I realized that I enjoyed the transcription work more than the data entry that I was doing -and- the transcription work paid better. It was a no-brainer decision at that point to make the switch and start looking for more transcription work. I took some time to practice my skills, make new contacts, get some private clients, and things grew from there. Before I knew it, referrals and requests were coming in and I was transcribing almost every day.
