    I recently started a Medical Transcription course. I will be charging
    .11-.12 cents per 60 character line, or approximately $10.00 per page. I
    have spoken to some doctors and they all found this to be in range.

    Hi, Ashley.

    I can't remember if you mentioned your skills, but I did want to let you know I
    started a business a while back as a freelance secretary. It took about three
    weeks of pounding the pavement, but I ended up with more jobs than I could
    handle; no office politics; lots of great challenges; and nice pay. I charged
    less than a regular temp agency, and made more than the people who worked for
    them; and more than I usually made in my regular jobs.

    I just wanted to post and say thanks to everyone for such wonderful
    and helpful advice! However I'm not sure how the job hunt is going to
    go for my husband soooo some time this week I'm going to apply at a
    few stores in the next town that may be hiring. I'm always really,
    really nervous about starting/changing jobs but I know it just has to
    be done. Then I plan on (after we get caught up on bills) putting a
    certain amount of money back every time I get paid so that later on I
    can fully invest in some type of business But thanks everyone!

    P.S. I loved the hillbilly house wife link! It was great!

    I have always wanted to do this but I can't for the life of me
    figure out how to set a payscale. How do you figure out what is
    reasonable to charge (I assume per page, per line etc).

    Hi, Monica.

    Sixteen years ago I simply charged $8.00 per hour. Now I would charge in the
    range of $15.00 or more per hour, with a minimum of $15.00 if I were to do a
    small letter or something like that.

    Most of my work was in offices. Nothing phased me, so I would leap right into
    using their computers, keep track of expenses, all kinds of stuff for them.
    They usually wanted something specific (adding columns, proofing work, typing,
    answering phones, etc.), so there was never any problem with knowing the entire
    background of the project.

    I researched this subject for a while; I am a registered nurse and have some
    friends in helath care, including Dr's offices. They are told me the same
    thing: medical transcriptionists are hard to find, and if a MT can offer a
    turn around time of 24-48 hours, she can get all the work she can handle. I
    went to a 3 hour seminar last week, given by Deborah Burns, a MT who has
    owned her own MT business for 18 years. I signed up for her course, which is
    completed at home, with telephone support and other benefits. I am so
    excited about all of this, and hope to start my own business within the next
    year.
    By the way, I DO NOT benefit in any way from saying these great things about
    this program. I just feel that I found the best program after a lot of
    research. Her e-mail is DBurns622@aol.com www.medtranscription.com
