Again, DON'T go with a for sale by owner agent. Buy Owner is the same thing.
No, never. I would have been an owner of a
I would have loved to own a floral shop, catering business, and photography studio that specializes in weddings.  Now, I'm too broke to take classes in photography or start my own business.  I should have done it while I had the chance, but I was too secure with the money I was making before and thought it was a lucrative field to be in.
The owner
should be happy you left a blank if you weren't sure of it. It's much better to blank than to guess on somethin, and even people in the business a long time have issues when beginning something new.

I have 15 years experience and when I first read your note, even I had to stop and scratch my head for a second for what OV meant, (LOL) but I have it in my expander. I agree with the other post in that the owner should be glad you left a blank than to guess at something. I like to think that would be the mark of a good Transcriptionist to leave a blank rather than gamble at making a mistake. Also, when we learn new things, it can be stressful because you are trying to do a good job in areas where we are all new and perhaps learning new things and words. I say, keep up the good work and we all learn from our blanks whether we are new in the business or not. She was really harsh to make that comment.
I think the owner's name was Dawn. nm
the owner screens the MTs and knows what she is doing.
There is one editor/QA person who if push comes to shove and you can't get it you can e-mail that person. It's a small company and run smoothly with no pompous people allowed and no incompetent people allowed.
as a former MTSO owner

Personally, I would not hire anyone unless they could transcribe the hardest dictator I had. And that is at LEAST two years of acute care experience.

I think the expression is, "burned once, twice shy." 

This came from an email from Andy, the owner, last December to the employees:

"Whether we think offshore labor is right or wrong, it has become a fact we cannot escape from. OSi will not actively pursue offshore labor contracts, but we have made the decision to experiment with using some offshore labor to save this large OSi client from going elsewhere. We believe this is the best decision for our employees assigned to this account and the company because this account is growing and we can assign the offshore part to the future increases and not have to reassign any OSi MTs. OSi is committed to continue using US MTs for the majority of their work and we will continue to resist going offshore."

He is talking about Ochsner, and I was told that they STILL offshore to them and also to Sarasota and Mayo.

The problem is that they LIED AND DENIED AND LIED AND DENIED this for years. They got caught when the then-QA manager, SD, mistakenly forwarded an email from the Indian company to the company employees. Of course, she was demoted, so they hired NP to replace her. However, FA pitched a hissy and threatened to go on strike because she was overlooked, so they kissed her a$$ and moved NP to another position. Not surprisingly, that department has gone straight to the toilet, and almost everyone has either quit or gotten fired, in addition to the mass exodus of employees since this came to light, because she is incompetent, inexperienced, and daffy as hell and is the most irresponsible, nonproductive person in a management position.

Be careful. If you are not in THE circle and kiss a$$, you are so dispensable that it is not even funny.

Any company that repeatedly lies about offshoring, promotes incapacitated people on power trips, and sends the work offshore in the first place, is ruthless and cannot be trusted.

Look elsewhere. It will only get worse!

If the owner's name begins with a L, then she's sm
okay.  I worked for a company out of Florida called Mediscript Inc a year or so ago and she was real nice.  Email me if you like.
Sante Fe owner
I bought a 2004 Sante Fe and I absolutely love it.  I get 27/mpg in the city and about 35/mpg highway.  It is roomy and comfortable.  You also can't beat the warranty.  I had some paint chipping right where the doors close on the bottom.  I called the 800#, took it in and they fixed it without a nudge and gave me a 2005 to drive in the mean time.  Mine is a 6 cyl and fully loaded with a sunroof and all and I only paid $17,000 for it.  It'll be paid off in September!  Yippee!
Nobody is satisfied with 8.5 if owner is getting 19. (nt)

Not an owner and I do not farm out

I agree that no one should work for $10.00 an hour in this profession.  Funny how I've gone from someone new in this thread to someone who owns an MTSO in this thread.  Wrong and wrong. 

I have my own accounts and do my own work. 

I just feel that if you form a group of burnouts, then you continue to be a burnout forever.  My initial thought was that only burnouts are invited to form a group by the OP?  What about new grads that have a lot to offer in this field that would love to be sitting in some of these burned out seats making some money. 

If someone has been burned out time and time again, it is time to look inward at one's self and their choices in their career. 

I think it would take one burn out session for me to know this is not my gig.  I'm not so sure I'd look for other burn outs to join me in my misery.   

You are the owner of this business, are you not?
If you want to make it 20 minutes, that's your perogative. You don't need to ask permission to do what you need to do.
I would second your post as the owner
of my company called me yesterday to assist me with a problem since I had some new antivirus put on my system, just was not working with my platform. This was not the first time she has helped me out and I really appreciate her.
As an IC, you are a business owner .
The organizations you mention are for employee labor relations.

It is up to you to negotiate for your business.

must be the owner who does not want to answer
Are you American?
Will you PLEASE address this issue?  I don't want to hear you tell me you are trying to get things together since you claim to have been the web developer for some years. If you want people to trust you, do the right and LEGAL thing and take action.  Cutesy little picture of the 2 of you ... wonder what else was cooking that night?
Not at TransTech, They are/were all MTs. Even the owner used to be an MT. One of the
things I really respect most about this company actually. All supervisors, managers, leads and even the owner used to be MTs. I think the only ones who weren't are the IT staff.
set up by previous owner
wasn't it???
Is the owner's initials AM? sm

If so, her rudness ran me away

Emailed owner....
Thank you for the offer. That is so nice. I just emailed the owner asking her if she had this information for me or if any of the other MTs there have it.  I will let you know and appreciate the help so much.
The owner of the company said this.... AND
on her site boasts about how she has 13 years experience and those working for her have superior quality, meet deadlines, and desire continued learning...

You would think since she wants such superior quality work, she would be willing to pay for it. Undoubtedly this is a 6-7 cpl company...

Yep, she no doubt gets superior quality there or newbies who will take anything and never expect more money.
Former owner of MDI, now General Manager
Wow - I most definitely do work at MDI.

If you worked for MDI you would know how extremely busy we are. I sent out a mass email on Wednesday asking for extra help.

I try to NEVER overhire, as I am a Transcriptionist myself and I realize that my MT's need the job and the money coming in on a regular basis. So I do take great offense at your post. AND YES, I really work at MDI.

Please give me a call.

I left another company because the owner sent out

an email to people she felt confident would defend the company on another website against flames (and my name was on her list) asking us to keep up with the screen names of the people who had negative attitudes.  The purpose was to give this list to the recruiter who would then black ball the hiring of these people or get rid of the ones who were already employees..  After reading this agreement, I get the feeling they want something similar.  One thing I learned a long time ago is that you cannot control what other people feel, say, think or do.

I turned notice the same day.

Unleashed dog owner in wrong. sm
According to Judge Judy, that guy's dog was not under his control, so he is responsible for any damages you suffered.  Unless you were in his yard but if you were on public sidewalk or street, he was negligent and in the wrong.  I think the policeman was wrong on this one.  If you got a report, great, if not, try to get one and take pics of any damages, bruises, etc.  A doctor's report could be benefieal too.
I am a service owner!!! That's pretty much
supervisory, wouldn't you say?
I'd call the owner of the system (sm)
I think it depends on how the system you are dialing into is set up.
off on a tangent huh company owner?
Why the continued criticism? Are you the owner?
Without the comma, the sentence was fragmented and was not complete. I don't know about the other sentence as I must have gotten that one right.  I see a lot as an Editor as well.  Like I said, I've been doing this for well over 20 years and I don't need to "brush up" as you say. 
It's shameful if the new owner is foreign but
No, taken back by THE owner, then sold.
Built by the guy in Pakistan and run in Sherri's name. IMO the only reason she doesn't have her site up is that SHE doesn't know how. She sat back and had this guy do the work (offshoring) and collected money. Now she's scrambling to find someone to build her site over there.
New Owner Please Come Forward And Show Yourself
Have you heard the rumor the Writer's Union is the new owner of this board and they will be promoting a Transcription Union? With Google's new Medical Record Depository, the public actually viewing their own records, our skills will be in demand and we can set our own standards of reimbursement. Supply and demand.
new owner, new interests in site now perhaps. NM
out with old, in with the new. Personally I think the new ads are refreshing.
As a business owner, you set the rates.
The doctor has a choice to pay those rates or not. If he has someone that will do the same job for 2 cents less, why should he pay you more? If he won't pay what you think you deserve, then it is time to find new clients that will pay the rates you desire. Good luck though. I find more and more MTs are willing to work for less just for the opportunity to work at home and that drives down the wages for all of us.
Clients may not stay with a new owner
In this business, it is personal contact with the clients and whether they like you or not that keeps you in business. They are not obligated to stay with a new owner and likely will not, unfortunately.
medical transcription service owner. nm
Medical Transcription Service Owner :D
When you do not know, you should ask and you are not an idiot! :)
Proud owner of Alaskan Malamute!
I was so happy to see the AKC finally recognize the Alaskan Malamute this past weekend with the national championship.  Cane is 3 years old and is nothing less than a part of the family.  He honestly thinks and acts like one of the family.  It is so amazing how smart dogs can be!
Owner/Operator of Trucking Company
Is she ever precious! Looks like she's the deli owner's kitty.
I was hoping she had a home and it looks like she does!
How would you KNOW what the owner is charging? You think she is going to share that info?
Medical Transcription Service Owner
Right. And because this overstuffed 5-house owner driving her
gas guzzling SUV can't buy ice cream for her kids, she goes to Angel Ministries and takes the $25 bag of food, which  means the last person in line who goes there and really NEEDS it, goes without. Nice. Real nice.
With used to have this problem all the time with the owner begging us to put in at least a few sm
lines for someone else within the year, when we were really her employees, just with no benefits.  The IRS could have made big trouble for her.  We had to work for at least one other person/company or would not be considered ICs, but employees.
The owner can sell on Ebay or Amazon, thus

can take the responsibility and offer a limited warranty that it performs properly.  Or can recondition the equipment.  Myself, I would not buy and Lanier is expensive.  A lot of job worksites want MTs to provide/purchase this expensive stuff, no way. 

Who knows if you will continue with the service and if not, you have equipment that only works with services that have that equipment.  Nope, not me, would not buy, would not sell the owners equipment.  It will come back to "you" and owner may not accept and remedy

Randman....you are a MTSO owner and yet you are calling
You are completely wasting your time on this board, because we are not moron-enough to work for an MTSO like your's. Really ask think about this for a minute..."Do you expect me to want to even take a look at your website that you post after every comment AFTER calling someone a moron?" You are JERK!!!.....I can call names on here because I don't claim to be a service owner, I am calling you that on behalf of all MTs....now get freaking lost!!!
The owner should check out "factoring" companies
In order to pay employees on time, while waiting for accounts to pay MTSO. I think PRN Funding is supposed to be a good one.

I'm afraid that kind of pay situation, being as ''imperfect'' as it is, indeed, is likely to keep a lot of good, qualified people away.
I've know the owner and it is a small company. He doesn't know the first
thing about MT, word processing programs, etc.   I have worked for the company through 3 owners and now I do prn work for him.  
Yes, Yes! Sue the OWNER of the plastic pool because they did not secure it properly. Now it was a
deadly object due to THEIR negligence! Just think of the $$$. 
Not sure. I was told by the stable owner it was a fungus but my ferrier said it
was not.  Probably time for a vet.
