How to Start Your Work at Home General Transcription Career!

Are you looking for a work-at-home job that costs little to start up, is flexible, and pays you well for your time and effort?  If so, then a general transcription home business might be the perfect career for you.

I have been a work at home general transcriptionist for ten years now.  General is not medical, so you don’t need to go to school for it.  It’s very low-cost to start up.  In fact, the software you need can be acquired for free.  Best of all, the schedule is flexible.

When my husband and I separated many years ago, I knew I was going to have to find a career that allowed me to be home with my three kids.  They were struggling with the change in our family situation and the move to a new neighborhood, and I wanted to be available to them in a way that working outside the home would not allow.

If they needed to stay home from school because they were sick, I wanted to be there.  If they were having a party at school, and the teacher had asked for volunteers, I wanted to be able to help out.  If they were just having a bad day and needed to talk, I wanted to be able to stop whatever I was doing and listen.

I had studied medical transcription for several months, but was coming to the conclusion that it probably was not the right fit for me.  I’m a hypochondriac, so reading descriptions of sick people and their symptoms all day, every day was not a good idea.  Besides, I still had months to go in my medical transcription course, and because of my situation, I needed to make money YESTERDAY.

General transcription has been a godsend to me.  It’s allowed me the freedom and flexibility to be there for my kids whenever they’ve needed me, but also provide them with food, clothing, shelter, lessons, and more.

Now all three girls are grown.  One graduated from college with honors and is married, and the other two are currently in college and doing well.  I can truly say that if I had not found my general transcription career, none of this might have happened.

Because my general transcription home business has been so flexible and rewarding, and I want to share that opportunity with other moms, I have written an ebook – Jump-Start Your Work at Home General Transcription Career: The Fast and Easy Way to Get Started!  It’s only $2.99 and available at Amazon for Kindle.  I priced it at $2.99 so it would be affordable for everyone.


Inside, you will find everything you need to know to get started in general transcription from home, as well as everything I’ve learned over the course of my ten-year home-based general transcription career – necessary equipment, practice opportunities, resume advice, testing tips, links to helpful sites, free resources, and much more.

Best of all, the ebook includes a list of 60 companies that hire home-based transcriptionists (with links) and a pass code to access a page on my site where I continually update the links and add new ones.

From Reviews:

“All I can say is wow! This ebook was so well written and easy to follow! It was beyond helpful. I now don’t feel so intimidated to try general transcription…Thank you!”   – Misty

“Purchasing Ms. Mills’ book was the very best thing I did when contemplating starting a freelance transcription business. I had no idea how to start, and her book answered ALL my questions and much more.”   – Linda

If you do not own a Kindle, you can download Amazon’s free Kindle Reading app, purchase the book, and read it with that: Amazon Kindle Reading App.

If you do buy my ebook and find it helpful, I so hope you will rate it and post a review for me on Amazon.

Finally, if you do decide to give general transcription from home a go, Amazon offers a complete transcription starter kit. It’s the Express Scribe Pro Transcription Kit with USB Foot Pedal and USB Transcription Headset! It’s everything you need, in one package, to get started, including the transcription software I recommend in my book!

Best of luck to you!
