As a journalist, do you ever have enough time?

As a journalist/writer, when you have a project that has been assigned, there are so many steps to get through to be able to develop the perfect article, the perfect end-product, that it’s a wonder you have enough time in the day to even think about them all.

There are phone calls to make. Interviews to set up and then to hold. Outlines to write, and even the final article/chapter/paper to complete. Possibly even photos to choose. Editors to deal with. The list goes on and on. All the while, juggling the business of life that is always there, and quite frankly more important that any article, book, paper you will ever write – your family.

So when you can, it’s nice to know it’s okay to ask for help. Help that will give you that hour, hours, or even days to handle the other aspects of your project and the important parts of your life. And when you can find that help, and it’s within your budget, that is all the more reason to consider asking for it.

CLK Transcription understands the needs of the journalist. We understand their deadlines and we understand their budgets. We have been fortunate to be able to assist many with their audio/video transcription and we have grown to understand that their audio is a valuable tool in their work, but that the transcription of it is time-consuming and cumbersome for them to handle on their own. It, quite frankly, can interfere with the completing the project itself and absolutely interrupts the family time they could have if they just didn’t have to do it themselves.


The good news is THEY DON’T!

CLK Transcription can handle their audio/video transcription and develop a quality document, and return it to them in most cases within 36 hours or less. Now they can get on with the project and get on with their enjoyment of a little bit of family time. We even transcribe voice mail. Yes, many can get that service for free, but are the messages usable, understandable, or delivered timely? If it’s free, do you get what you pay for?

We are able to work with any downloadable audio, and yes, we work with cassettes, DVDs and CDs. We even convert white paper to an electronic document. And if you have an audio you want to transcribe yourself, but just need it converted to a different medium – we can do that, too! We even offer a FTP site for those who need the transferability of their files to others. All at a cost that fits within your budget.

So, when you have a project and you need a little or a lot of help with the transcription, why not find out how we can assist? You may just find the time and money you have been looking for.

We are an email away from starting your project today and having it back to you with a day or so. We are US owned and operated and never send anything off shore. We offer a confidentiality agreement to every client. We never use speech recognition, and every project is proofread before delivery.

Spring is finally here!

The weather is changing, and it looks like Spring has finally arrived in more than just a few states. Those of us in the Northeast thought it would never arrive with snow, snow and more snow, and then teasing temps in the 60s and 70s, only to have yet more snow the next day.

Yes, Spring has finally arrived! The winter of 2013-2014 has many still waiting for the buds on the trees to begin showing themselves leaving us wondering if we will have any leaves at all to clean up next fall.

But YES! Spring is really here – FINALLY.

The weather is changing and people are once again venturing out without their winter jackets, hats, and gloves, to enjoy the warmth of the sun. The hibernation is over. Cabin fever and winter blues will soon be long forgotten.

Vacations are being planned, graduations are on the horizon, proms are being anticipated. Gardens are being laid out, and husbands are looking forward to the outside chores that will soon be on the ‘honey-do-list’. (okay, maybe that is pushing it a bit.)

There are so many family activities to enjoy now that the temps are rising and the shining sun does more than just melt the fallen snow away.

For the journalists, ASJA is also held this week. The time to educate and be educated, connect and be connected, and meet up with those friends from all over the nation will once again be here. I know so many who look forward to this week every year. It is planned to perfection, talked about all year, looked forward to by all. Those who cannot attend trust that the events will be recapped by the great conversations that will go on and on until the next event, never tiring of listening to every word, while they do what they can to ensure they attend next year.

Yes, Spring is here!

And most importantly, candy, especially peeps, will be on sale tomorrow.


Happy Easter every one, and enjoy Spring!



Meet a CLK Transcriptionist, Sarah A. Airforce wife and mom, with a sense of humor!

I like long walks on the beach, love to surf, I am a cancer…

just kidding…lol

I am 27 years old. I am a native Southern California girl who grew up in the small town of San Juan Capistrano. I currently live in New Mexico with my husband Daniel and out two daughters Jade (8) and Faith (1 1/2). We are stationed at an Air Force Base out here near the mountains of Alamogordo. Jade goes to school in California but I make frequent visits throughout the school year to see her and then she is back out here with us for the summer.

I LOVE transcription work, especially that pertaining to the medical field. I am certified as a Medical Transcription but do enjoy all aspects of the transcription job. I am currently in school to become a Medical Biller and Coder.

We have one pet. His name is Bo. He is a rescue Border Collie we found left for dead on the side of the road out here. He is paralyzed from the waist down and had to lose one of his hind legs. He is an amazing dog and full of inspiration for our family that no matter how bad it gets we can always pull through. He is in a wheelchair most of the time but is able to walk (quite miraculously) just using his front two legs and his back leg as balance (like a kangaroo).

I love to surf, skateboard, play with the kiddos, work, and do anything outdoors with the family. I also love to paint and do scrap-booking.


For those interested in becoming an independent contractor for CLK, please send why you chose this profession to (I do not do resumes)

Why do we love what we do? Here are just a few of the reasons:

“I am a professional opera singer and private voice teacher. Being a performer has its ups and downs, and does not always bring in a steady flow of income. With CLK Transcription, I’m able to work from home and work around my rehearsal/performing schedule. It’s a great second job for a freelance artist like me.” – N. Easter,


“I love working as an IC for CLK Transcription. CarolLee and Leticia are great to work with and our clients write on so many interesting topics. I’ve learned a lot professionally as well as so much on a variety of different things from cancer research to technology to celebrity blogs. Lastly, being an IC gives me the flexibility I need for my family in being able to work from home. CLK Rocks!” – Doris Regier


“I love being an IC because of the flexible hours I can work. Life can be so hectic. There’s never enough hours in a day. You get to work around your life, not fit your life in around your work. CLK Transcription is a great company to work for. It is a fun transcription job and a great learning experience while working those flexible hours. There are many topics and the work is never boring. I wouldn’t have it any other way!” – D. Henderson


“Transcription fits my lifestyle to a T! I was born with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism that makes socializing insanely hard. I had nearly accepted that I would just never be able to work, even after my medical transcription training. Then I met CarolLee Kidd and she took a chance on me. Now I have a job I love and I finally feel like an adult. I’m so grateful.” – Amber G.


“The job of a transcriptionist is an ideal one for me! In the first place, reading is one of my favorite activities, and at best the interviews and meetings that I transcribe are like interesting articles from the New Yorker or Vanity Fair magazine, and in the (often celebrity’s) own voice, as well. I could tell of some thrilling moments, but we are sworn to confidentiality. Also, I live out in the Colorado Rockies, a 100-mile round trip to town once a week to pick up mail and stock up. So being able to telecommute from home saves me on gas and time. It also lets me spend most of my time at home, which my dog loves, and I can pursue my art, crafts, and creative knitting with the time saved. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to work remotely and save money on food because you don’t have to buy takeout because you are just too tuckered out to cook (and besides, the pizza places don’t deliver out here, lol.)” – Tanya M.


“Being an IC for CLK Transcription has allowed me to work my own schedule and has given me the opportunity to learn something new from each audio transcribed. Thank you CLK.” – Linda Wert


“Eight years ago my husband and I found out we were going to have a baby. We thought it would be great if I could find a job that I could do from home while raising our child. I had heard a commercial on the radio for a seminar being held for medical transcription work. We decided to go and learn what it was all about. As we sat through the seminar, I realized it was something that could fit my needs quite well. I needed to take a training course to be able to do this. I planned on being finished with the course before I had the baby and hopefully starting to get clients. The baby had other ideas. I went into labor at 27 weeks into my pregnancy. Luckily my baby boy was born healthy, although underdeveloped. He was in the NICU for 79 long days, where I traveled a 45-minute drive one way just to see him every day. Needless to say, this put my coursework on hold. We were very lucky in that we got to bring home a healthy, happy boy at the end of that time. Then life just got in the way. I continued to work my regular job, with my mom helping out to babysit. Work at my regular job just continued to get slower. My hours kept getting cut. I continued looking for a job that I could do from home. In June of this year, I saw an ad for transcription work with CLK Transcription, Inc. I applied and CarolLee got back to me quickly. It was very easy to set it all up to begin my trial period with her. She was very helpful with any questions I had. Before I knew it, I was an Independent Contractor for her company. I absolutely love doing what I do. You can make as little or as much as you want. I can do it whenever I like…and even in my pajamas! I would like to thank CarolLee for giving me the opportunity to do what I’ve wanted to do for a very long time and Leticia for always being so helpful and upbeat every time I contact her.” – Monica P.


“I love what I do because what I do has garnered me wonderful colleagues and connections, and the ability to help others hone and grow their skills is so rewarding to me. Knowing that others enjoy the work as much as I do, and all with the same added goal of stopping the off shore of one of the most off-shored trades – makes it all worthwhile. We give our best because it is all we know how to do. We love our career choice and the clients we assist every day.” – CarolLee Kidd

A Transcriptionist’s Tale, by Amanda Friday…

When I was younger, my parents always teased that I would never be able to find a job that I could do in my pajamas. I didn’t get into the transcription business because of that, but it definitely has become a running joke over the years! I have been a medical transcriptionist since 2007. I graduated from the Career Step program, which I found invaluable. I don’t know of any general transcription training course, as with general transcription you receive any kind of report under the sun, but for medical transcription I definitely recommend it. There is so much to learn language wise, procedure wise, pharmaceutical wise that jumping into it headfirst would be a detriment to your productivity. That is, if you could even find a job without that training in the first place!


After five years of medical transcription, I found myself getting burned out. I was sick of the medicalese and doctors dictating procedures or exam findings at the speed of light. Just because they say it a million times a day didn’t mean I knew what they were saying! It was a real struggle to make the short “commute” down the hallway to my home office every day, knowing I had the same kinds of reports as the day before to look forward to.


On top of starting to dread working, my largest account was sent overseas, causing my income to drop dramatically. I think offshoring American medical records, or anything that relates to American jobs, is just criminal. The complete lack of responsibility that these companies have towards their American employees is a travesty. To be fair, my company fought tooth and nail to keep my account in the US, but in the end money won out, as it usually does, and boom. Account gone. Practically overnight.


Staying home has been such a luxury as it affords me more time with my family. My husband works an odd schedule and without my working at home, I would see him one weekend a month. We don’t have children yet, but look forward to not having to pay any childcare costs, which are skyrocketing. My husband is the only one that commutes into work, so gas payments are down and the wear and tear really only occurs on one vehicle instead of two. I knew I didn’t want to work outside the home, but I felt my options were limited and I may have to reenter the outside workforce.


I looked into general transcription and am so glad that I did. It’s a joy to no longer type physical examinations and laboratory results! Every report I’ve accepted through CLK Transcription has been something different. Work is exciting and challenging, but in a good way! I can honestly say that I have learned something from every single report I have transcribed for CLK. And the flexibility CLK allows is tremendous.


In addition to transcription work, I also narrate and produce audio books so I need to be able to manage my time efficiently. With CLK, it’s a breeze to meet audio book deadlines, as I am not tied to my desk. If I’m feeling behind on my recordings, no problem. I just don’t sign in that day. No muss, no fuss. It’s fantastic. I feel incredibly blessed to have found CLK Transcription. I couldn’t be happier to be working with CLK and look forward to many, many more years!


Amanda Friday

I am going to be an Oma again!

When my first grandson was born, nearly 10 years ago, I was going through so many emotions. Happiness because he is an angel from the moment he took his first breath. Worry – is my son ready to be a daddy? Will he be able to handle everything that comes with being a dad? He left college to take the responsibility by the horns – because deep down he knew he was going to be a single parent. It may not have been the ‘right’ decision at the time, but it has proven to be the best decision for my grandson.

Life changed for my son, and he has been a wonderful father, a single father who went from sole custody for years to fighting the system to retain custody, to knowing his son ain’t going nowhere and won’t be in harm’s way any more – at least as long as he can help it. And my grandson flourishes.

But it has been difficult. I have tried to help as much as I can, and although at times I may feel like I did too much, and probably did, I know my son appreciated it.

But again, it has been difficult for him. He had little or at times, no life outside of work and his son. Then a little over a year ago he reconnected with a high school sweetheart after years and much distance. A nice girl. A girl he fell in love with all over again, but a girl with three kids of her own. Add in my grandson, now there are four children, soon to be five children and another adult that my son is responsible for. My son’s future is what worries me. He has been working so hard and struggling with one child, and now here is taking on the responsibility of three more, and another adult with a baby now on the way.

When he informed me that he is going to be a daddy again, to a little girl in April 2013, I was speechless. Personally, I don’t believe he is ready. With the economy the way it is, raising one child is difficult. I wanted to be happy in that moment. I could not. I saw him working so hard to give his girlfriend and her family everything they needed (and wanted) and saw him being crushed and oblivious to it all.

I saw his challenge grow immediately. His credit rating went downhill after all his hard work to get it to a decent level. His pockets were emptier. He was stuck between hearing me moan and groan about how he is handling life choices and being in love and wanting to make his new family happy – at all costs. I felt he was ‘in’ this alone, and he didn’t care.

I tell him that to be in love, to share a life, means to share everything – including responsibility. I didn’t feel he had that yet, and sometimes still don’t. I saw others being more important rather than the family as a unit. I saw that there was no help, and it concerned me. It still does. He is under a lot of pressure…pressure to keep his family happy. Pressure to keep his family fed, housed, clothed. And then there was the pressure from me.

What? Me pressure him. You bet! Sure he is not in it alone. He does have his girl. But my two cents, whether he wanted to hear it or not was that love don’t pay the bills. One person cannot do this. I know. I struggled with two kids and did have a second (and sometimes third income). They have one. How in the world can you move forward with your life and make sure your children have the life they deserve?

Get another job? He hardly has time to sleep. He is active at work. He is active around the house. He hardly has time for friends. But that is what happens when you have one child, much less five to take care of, and a girlfriend that wants to be happy too. Not everyone understands this. Not everyone is ready to be the responsible one. He does and he is. He doesn’t resent the choices he has made. He struggles. But we all do, don’t we.

So I will worry, but I will never worry if he is ready to be a great father – he already is!

I will continue to watch, and of course, be a proud mom and probably still say things he doesn’t want to hear because he knows I don’t hold back – good or bad – and yet I will be there for him – albeit not as much as I used to. I have to understand that there are two adults in the equation, and I am not one of them. They have to figure it out together – and hopefully they will.

But as the time moves towards the birth of my second grandchild, whom they have named Serenity Jade Kidd, I will add some happiness in there. It won’t be a fake smile. It will be tears of happiness as well as tears of worry. After all, I am his mother. I am the Oma. If I didn’t worry, I would not be a very good at either, would I? And although this is my second grandchild, technically I will now have five – three boys and two girls that will call me Oma. I have my work cut out for me as well.

So yes, I am going to be a Oma again, but I started this  journey being a mom to an awesome son who has made me proud and who I hope knows that his mother loves him beyond all else – even if I seem to be a meddling know it all.

Keep him and his family in your thoughts and wish him luck, will you?










Why I work with newbies…they all have a story and it ends with a desire to do the job.

I first started utilizing “newbies”, because I found that they are the ones who have spent thousands of dollars to get the education to do the job, only to find it difficult to find the work (without of course the usual two to five-year minimum experience) because so much of our work was being off shored.

I taught transcription courses for a local vo-tech and worked with many schools on the east coast and found that what they were teaching was barely enough to even consider calling the graduates typists, much less transcriptionists.Some didn’t even explain how to load files into a player, or even how to market themselves for a position with a company or private work.

I also found that the newbie was unspoiled by the usual ‘stuff’ those in the business have come to use as a crutch of sorts – speech recognition, hot keys – shortcuts. I don’t believe in such things because nothing beats the human ear, and no one ever speaks the same words in the same manner or with the same tone, every time they say them. Those shortcuts could cause major errors. I don’t use shortcuts – I use skill.

For over 8 years now, I have brought on and worked with the newbie who has had everything from years of school to a few weeks of transcription experience, and found that they can be the best and most dedicated workers out there with a little extra work on my part – yet no one wants to take the time to work with them.
Why won’t they work with them? They have spent literally thousands of dollars to get what they were told was the education to do the job. They have spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars to get the equipment they need to do the job. They have the desire to learn the job and do the best they can. They still want to do the job and want to learn all they can after their own research shows them what a painfully stressful job it can be. They still want the job when all they hear from others in the field is how horrible the job can be and how difficult it is to make a living doing transcription.

Why not work with them?

My guess is that it is that because they are newbies, they can place unreasonable experience requirements on them so that they (the larger transcription companies) can continue to off shore the transcription projects they handle. Most larger companies off shore their work without ever telling their clients they actually do. They hide the information on their website, will even say they do not offshore, but have ‘branches’ or ‘satellite’ offices in the Philippines, India, or Mexico. They off shore even though there are skilled and educated people, or those who want to be trained, ready and willing to work right here in the US.

So why do I work with newbies?

In addition to the dedication and desire I mentioned above, here is what I found in working with the newbie:

They are mostly single moms, women taking care of a disabled family member, disabled themselves trying to supplement their income, widows and widowers, battered women trying to start over, a college student trying to ease the financial burden on their parents (and themselves). They are the wife of a service member trying to make whatever they can while their spouse is deployed, an at-home mother working to ease the financial crunch of the household, women battling  cancer, Lupus, or other illnesses – all who need work just as much, if not more than their desire to work.


For those reasons alone, I am proud to work with newbies. They not only want it, they need it. I would rather take the time to train the newbies, and allow them to be the best they can be, to earn the extra they need to get by (and hopefully more than), to help them free themselves from some of the stresses of their lives. For those reasons, I would rather work with a newbie than to consider off-shoring any work off shore.


Sure, I may not ever have free time for that yearly vacation because I have to put a little extra time (okay a lot of extra time) working with the newbies to get them to the point where they are no longer considered newbies, and I may get frustrated with the additional concerns newbies have when starting a new venture, but I know that I have helped a family, while building a kick ass team I like to call the CLK family.

They are all independent contractors, I am their client, and in addition to training them in the art of transcription, they gain the experience of running their own “company” from billing to taxes to finding ways to save on the programs and devices they need to ‘run’ their business, to how to market themselves and bring even more work back here to the US from the companies off shore. Some of my team have other jobs, some have many other clients, but all are respected for the work they do for CLK.

I started this company with a few “seasoned” transcriptionists and a handful of newbies who have now become the backbone of the CLK Team, and have seen that team grow with additional newbies over the years who have gone through rigorous training, quality assurance checks, and the guidance of the team. Not all make it, but those that stick it out are transcriptionists who love what they do and they do it with love.


To my team at CLK, whether you have been with me ten years or ten hours – Thank You for the work you do. Thank you for the patience you have with me and my quirks. Thank you for your best – that is all I ask. Thank you for helping me make CLK Transcription the best we can be!

Happy Labor Day 2012.

We have been noted in multiple best sellers and TV programs, and work with freelancers, authors, production companies, publishers, corporations, and scholars to complete their project timely, with quality at a cost they can afford.


If you are interested in a career in transcription, please forward why you chose this profession and a little bit about yourself to (No resumes and no phone calls, please)








CLK has what it takes to “know” what you need in a transcriptionist. To not just type what we hear, but to “know” what we transcribe.

When you have an audio you need transcribed, you need to know that skilled professionals are handling your project as if it were their own and that they “know” what they are transcribing. Sending your interview to a medical transcription company may not be the best route to go. The same can be said about your medical dictations…you wouldn’t send them to a transcription company that is not experienced in medical terminology.

CLK Transcription is a transcription company – we do it all.

When we receive your audio, you can be assured that whatever topic you are discussing, we can handle it.

  • We are educated in medical terminology and the standard practices of hospitals and physicians, and the very special needs they have.
  • We are HIPAA compliant and we offer every client a confidentiality agreement – EVERY client.
  • We do on-line research while transcribing your audio. Some of us have a past life (or currently work) in other fields, from banking and brokerage, nursing, teachers, translators, healthcare, repair persons, builders, architects, and more.

We also take additional steps to be on top of the most talked about topics:

  • Watching the top TV shows and news even if not our usual picks. We find the most informative are actually the commercials.
  • Reading magazines and keeping “up” on the topics that are hot for the moment.
  • Reading books and other material – including junk mail. Every item is a bit of information that can and will help us handle your work better.


Our best experience comes from our real life education that give us additional knowledge we need to complete your project.

Every team member has a story:

  •  We are all over the country – from the northeast to the south and all the way across to the west coast and even Canada.
  • We have lived through disasters, had loss of family and friends, survived illnesses, worked two or more jobs, been jobless – we have had our dreams fulfilled and some lost.
  • We are divorcees, newlyweds, widows, students, teachers, and even CPAs.
  • We have babies, tweens, teens, adult children and although we feel young, some of us even have grandchildren. We have seen them off to school and some take on the task of home-schooling.
  • We knit, crochet, play music, dance, write, paint, do arts and crafts, demo homes, yoga, bike, fish, boat, volunteer, and so much more.
  • We learn from every experience we have lived through and know it makes us who we are, and makes us better at what we do.

We have loved, laughed, and cried (sometimes while handling your audio).


We are a team. We are family and most of all – we are transcriptionists and we love what we do.


Find out how our experiences can help you with your project.

At least once in your life you could have used a great transcriptionist! Did you find it at the grocery store?

I get asked all the time, “who needs transcription services besides doctors and lawyers?’

I am always amazed at the amount of “wow, I hadn’t thought of that” responses that I get when I tell them.

At one time or another everyone needs transcription so they can have an electronic copy to edit, share and save.  Having a transcribed version of their audio or hard copy material allows them to do all of that, plus having someone else handle that part of their project, allows them time to complete the other pressing aspects of their project or life.

I am equally amazed at how many send their work to a medical transcription company when their project is not medically related. 

CLK Transcription is a TRANSCRIPTION company, specializing in medical and non-medical projects of all topics and specialties.   You wouldn’t take your transmission concern to a quick lube joint, or your horse to a pediatrician, or shop for a contractor at a grocery store would you?

  • Their grandma’s diary, recipes, and old love letters to be shared with others.
  • Their grandpa’s stories that made them sit in wonder on his lap while he told them.

  • Electronic Signatures developed – Go Green and Save a tree

We also proofread items already transcribed. 

All of these things and more can be easily transcribed and saved electronically for editing, burning to disc, sharing, and prep for that very important project.  When you think about the time saved when someone else does the transcribing, and you can get on with every other aspect of your project, or just spend time with loved ones  – you find how very important you time is.

So when you think you don’t need a transcription company, or feel you can do it yourself – I just have to ask “how much is your time worth?  How long does it take you to transcribe those notes, memos, audios – and what else could you be doing?”

CLK Transcription can help you find the time you need and help you meet your deadline and get on with other personal concerns.  Whether it is recorded audio or hard copy (scrap paper, receipts, hand written or old print), we can develop it into an easy to read and edit document for you.

Our rates are competitive, reasonable, and below the national norm – and we work with you on your budgetary concerns.  We offer an easy to read invoice as well as yearly invoice recaps for your tax filing.  Most importantly, every client receives a confidentiality agreement signed by us, and if you have other documentation needed, we have no problem supplying it for your records.  We never off-shore our projects and we do not use speech recognition – have you seen the errors made by use of this program?

Throughout the year we offer savings programs so that tax season and the holidays don’t take a bite of your work, or vice versa, and we offer payment plans for those who may need it.  We truly understand how your project is important to you even when the economy can slow us all down.

Contact us today to find out how we can save you time and money.

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming! Do you need more time?

Just when you think you have it all figured out and get into that groove of starting and completing your projects, the holidays sneak up on you, not to mention the end of the year, preparing for taxes and possibly new marketing of your own.  There just isn’t enough hours in the day, days in the week, or weeks in the month to finish everything you need to accomplish.


Whether you are a journalist, author, or ghost writer with interviews, student or parent with educational projects or IEPs, business professional with round tables and meetings, speaker or presenter with webinars, conferences, or audio blogs – this is the time of year where time to complete all of your projects AND meet family and personal demands is so difficult to find.


You clients, editors, and educators want and demand more and more of your attention, because they too know the end of the year is coming and there is so much to do to prepare for that and the coming holidays.  And your family – they just want you and your attention so you can celebrate with them.


Some may be able to juggle their projects and personal demands, but why juggle?


The team at CLK Transcription works through the holiday and allows you the gift of time to do those things that in the minds of your family and friends can be more important than your project .  We also offer gift certificates for that important person in your life that may be hesitant to let go of some of the workload.
