“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, www.natalieeaster.com
“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
