Default Introduction
Good Morning Everyone from Philadelphia, PA, the City of Brotherly Love. It is a blessing to be here. My name is Rose M. Smith and I just launched Standing In The Gap Typing and Notary Service. Working on a project right that is a challenge. Specialty, transcription mostly legal.

Hi,

Welcome to VAF. This site is full of great resources that will help you in your new endeavor. I'm a newbie too and am specializing in legal services (but not transcription).

If you add a signature to your profile it will give us something to call you besides "helping hands".

Thank you for that warm welcome. To be honest, I have spent most of emloyed life working in law office and with law firms. I started out working for a church and for the last 13 years, I have worked as an Administrative Assistant for the School District of Philadelphia, that is interesting. I can live with "helping hands" That is what I do most of the time, help. i am still learning my way around this web site, but it feels good. Presently, I am working on a 9 tape project, that i seriously under charged for, and I am trying to figure out how to re-negotiate the cost, I am also trying to figure pricing for transcription, so if there are any suggestions I am listening. I intend to purchase the "Become A Virtual Assistant" manual.

Even though I am on Face Book, i am very rarely there, and I have never used twitter. I am trying to figure out the difference between a tweet and a blog, you have to type both of them and you have think about what you say in them.

Hi Rose, welcome to the community
Is your business name related in any way to the philosophy of Wayne Dyer? Either way, it's a lovely choice.

Wishing you much success and looking forward to learning more about you and your business goals!

Helping hands is a great business name and reflects much of what we are about. There are a couple of threads on this forum about what to charge for transcription services. I will try to locate and send to you.

Good Morning Everyone and thanks for the advice and compliments. The name of my company is from the Bible. Right now if I can get the Interviewer to stop interrupting the interviewee, or trying to pull her answers out of her, I can get through this tape. It's like to trying to type 10 different conversations and get them all correct. I am close to pulling my hair out. Thanks for the support. I need to find a contract agree ment for work and pricing.

Hey Rose,
I decided to pull my name from the Bible too. Hopefully, it will help our new businesses grow and thrive. I wanted a name that did not limit me but opened me up to options and growth so I picked More Than Rubies. I wish you luck and success.

Thanks for that encouragement. This is new for me, I am still trying to learn how to get from one forum to another on this website, but I am having fun. I will be retiring within the next couple of years, if not sooner. I wondering if my starting a small business is God's next step for me. I tried answering a question for some regarding brochures and software, I hope this information helps. I use a product called PrintMaster by Broderbund, it is easy to use and adaptable for both mac and pc.
