Email reply vs. Post Reply
Could someone tell me how to post a message and then have someone reply by email instead of just "Post Reply."  I'm pretty new to this "chat" board.  But I WOULD like to say it is VERY informative and helpful.  Too bad some of the companies we work for aren't as helpful as one MT is to another MT.  We'd have it made!!
I sent her an email and this is her reply:

Well Micheal, nice to hear from you too.....Do you know how many resumes I get from all over the frickin country.  They don't even read the ad, and why should I not put EXACTLY what I am looking for in something I am paying for, the ad.......I don't have losers working for me and wouldn't hire one.   Are you looking ??  LOL

Hmm...first it would help if she could SPELL (its Michael, not Micheal).   Beam me up Scotty!

Sent you a reply via email
Email reply to her resignation
I forgot to post the email I sent her on the day she quit. Here it is:


This is very unfortunate! We have not received the files we assigned you for 6/30 submission and you are not answering your phone. I am dismayed by your lack of professionalism in not even giving us the courtesy of saying you will not do the work. That said, what personal problems you may have, I hope you work them out.

I regret to inform that I can no longer work for SMT because of personal issues that need my immediate attention. I am sorry for the lack of notice, but it could not be avoided. I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.

Thank you,
Vanessa Satterwhite
If you list you email addy in your reply,
I'll email you privately.
Thank you (email reply link inside)
Is it true that you can see the "email" when it's reply by email? sm
Some have said they've been contacted by moderator(s) regarding something they sent in Reply by Email.
Well, if you left your email address as a reply option,
maybe someone on "the other board" would email you privately with details! Otherwise, I never heard of it either!
I can use the deduction now, and when old and ready to sell, hope sell price is high enough won't
matter.  Also, I think there is a time frame of not working that negates the job deduction factor.

If you are having any problems validating your email addy, please email support@mtstars.com
KVMs $20-60. One internet connection. You'd have no email or a 2nd email acct for your 2nd puter.
I don't understand. I didn't get email from MT Stars, I got email from offshore people
is what I'm talking about. I'm not a liar and take offense to your insinuation.
They can send an email that goes to all MTs in one shot. I think she just means a courtesy email
would be nice. MQ is not getting any easier. My account has been picked over thoroughly when it went on DQS by ASR and I get all the remains because they only have a core group doing ASR which I think is wrong because you get all the bad dictators and it would be nice to be acknowledged that at least you know the person you can discuss problems with as they crop up. This is a big one and we have no manager anymore and no one to discuss this with at all in my office so you just sit here very day doing this work and no way to vent to someone that could offer some suggestions on this and other issues that come up to help relieve some of the stress of working this way.
Just send an email to the email link inside the post.
Again, because you entered your email address, you CAN receive email from anyone, but THEY

e-mail address because it is not revealed when they send mail because we have spam protection in place.  The only way they would know what your email address is, is if you reply to the email they send you.  If you don't want to receive any email from anyone, simply do not enter your email address in the Email field.


I intended to email it- already email the mods to remove
Not through the MTStars email server. Your email address is NOT
visible to anyone.  The only way your employer would know it is you is 1) if you respond when someone emails you, or 2) they recognize the way you write. 
Instead of clicking Post Quick Reply, go to the box further down on the left that says Post Reply to
So you can fix it up enough to sell it-- then do so
and split the money with the sister. So what if she didn't help. You should be able to get at least 5K if you clean it up. So work two weekends, clean it out, sell it and take your half of the 5K, which is $2500 which is more than enough to cover the $1000 you need. And think of it as a blessing for his sister.  Plus $2500 is a nice chunk of change for house de-junking, don't you think?
tried to email, invalid poster or email it said nm
San Antonio; email me; I can give you email for MT sm

who is in San Antonio and may be able to help you.

I'm in Corpus.

Actually, if you did turn around and sell

the computer and stole the SS numbers, don't you think you would be arrested and maybe go to jail or even be fined. 

Sure, ya could, but would ya!

We have stood behind what we sell.

How many times should we exchange the pedal before she tries to troubleshoot it through the software or the computer?  We exchanged it even though we did not feel that was the problem.  When the original pedal came back to us it was confirmed that the problem was not the pedal.  The pedals we use are widely considered by the transcription industry to be the most durable pedal available.  They are Infinity pedals. 

Do you have property you can sell or
borrow against? A house you can take an equity loan on??

Bless your heart. I feel for you.
Don't sell yourself short....
I charged docs/clinics 12-14 cents/line 5 years ago. They had no problem with this. Being paid by the hour in Canada at home where I work for a local hospital I make $18.33/hr plus 14% in lieu of benefits plus 4% vacation pay ($21.73 per hour) For contract work MT's in my area charge $25 per hour or 14 cents a line. This is not through MT companies - just for docs asking for extra help and our Physiotherapy Depts that do independent medical assessments contract it out to local MTs. Hope this helps. I'm in Ontario
Don't sell yourself short.

If you think that you need to "lower" your rate because you're not driving and picking up, then charge .10/line; otherwise, I would stick with the .11/line and consider it a "raise" if you get the job. Honestly, if the OM is happy with the quality she'll get at .06/line, then you probably didn't want that account anyway because I have found those OMs are the biggest pains and you're better off without the aggravation. JMO.

Anybody sell on Ebay? If so...
I've bought dozens of things on Ebay, only one item there.. today.. then it tells me I have a second chance offer. Not sure what this means, even after reading what it said about it. Any help appreciated !
Yes, yes, yes. Go IC and sell yourself. Get out of the house sm
and actually DRIVE to places where transcription takes place.  Leave a business card, a brochure, etc.  Usually, you'll have opportunity RIGHT THEN AND THERE to meet one of the doctors.  Two practices I stopped at made me WAIT in the waiting room while they got the MD to meet me because they were DESPERATE to find someone who KNEW what they were doing.   I have turned down work in  the past year because I was not able to keep up. One of these days, I might think of operating a small company. For now, I'm quite content.
Sell the furniture if you have to
You can always replace it later. I once sold a bedroom suite to come up with a mtg payment when I hit a low period in my life.

My fear is that your home does not sell for 30G. In Calif., real estate market is saturated with homes not moving and this is not the best time in the world to "flip" a house.
Sell my own stuff.
I had to take my site down for a while because I've been too busy but I make soaps, candles, rice socks, bird houses...lots of stuff.
I'd just get a new computer and sell the old one.
You can get a new computer for $299 when Dell or HP has their closeout model sales or refurbs. Otherwise, you can buy RAM cheap and install it yourself. It's pretty basic. What kind of system do you have? You need to make sure you have an open slot for additional memory.
Should I sell my Lanier?
I have an older Lanier transcribing machine.  I do not plan on ever working for a company that uses it.  I'm not officially selling it yet, just want feedback from my fellow MT's what I should do.  I work after hours using regular mini-cassette tapes for local companies and another company uses Gear Player.  If there's an MT that can use this one, I'd gladly help out!  Thanks in advance...
Don't sell yourself short
Hiring seems to have slowed down quite a bit over the past couple of months (from what I've seen). I have four years in and have been looking for a second company and I can't even find one right now. I know four years is nothing compared to most, but still. I could take my pick in companies this past spring/summer...this always happens though. There will always be a slow down depending on the time of year.

Give it some time, you will find a company THAT PAYS.

Good Luck!!
why would you sell, take the money, then not provide (sm)
 sounds like a scam to me
well, sounds like you're trying to sell something

Does anybody sell on e-Bay to supplement MT income?
How hard is it.  Are you successful.  I've been thinking about it and wondered about other MT successes.  Thanks
Oops, that was sell items on E-Bay (sm)

   So annoyed I can't spell. 

I'm wondering if you guys that are trying to sell

that you have already bought, or are planning to buy.  Just wondering because - well, Becky said out before the holidays.

I am thinking I would like to sell my house too but the main reason is it needs so much work done to it, we don't have enough room here, we don't really have the money to do the work that needs to be done, it's an older house (50 years old), I don't have an office, we have one tiny bathroom, the walls/trim need to be replaced and depress me.  And I'm thinking maybe I'd rather RENT a bigger place with more bathrooms and an office than buy another house and have to maintain it.  I know that you don't build up equity that way but I just feel stuck here and with renting, you are free to move when you get tired of it!

Also, if you take the write-off, when you sell your house
One is considered sale of your home and the office portion is considered sale of business property. Sometimes it isn't worth it. It can get complicated, so make sure you know what you're doing up front; good advice below to see a good accountant. Good luck.
Get a belly band. They sell them on e-bay! sm
There is a thing called a belly band. Breeders use these for their males to prevent them from hiking in the house. It is a band that goes around their belly and you put a mini pad or panty liner to absorb the "wee wee" They are usually between $8 to 10 and are machine washable and you can get the mini pads or panty lines for about $1 per package. I used doggy diapers on my girl puppies when they were small and also when they are in heat. They work great! I especially used them when we went to stay at a relative's house and she had brand new carpet and my shih-tzu was just a baby and not yet potty trained. Hope this helps you. Just try searching the web or e-bay for belly bands or doggie diapers. For a male, you want a belly band.
You might want to sell the hardcover version...
...on ebay and invest in the CD. It has a search feature, generics with trade names, etc. You will love it!
AGREE--they only do this to SELL MORE BOOKS. nm
AMA Style Guide or Chicago Manual of Style.  Go read all the classified ads for people in editing and publishing.
I think that only he and Taylor will sell their records....sm
I can't envision ever buying anything that Katherine or Elliott recorded.

Katherine should have gone home last night.
I think Taylor will sell records
I have his second indie CD and it's fabulous. All original songs, written by him, and it's great. Grab it if you can. I really don't think Kat will do all that much after this, really. I don't think she has the draw to bring people out to a concert. Obviously, Taylor does. I think Kelly Clarkson could have taken that song that Kat butchered and at least tried to do something with it...made it something worth listening to. Kat really, really messed that one up.
Ideas of how one would sell a business, non-MT. NM
Price that house to SELL and NOW!
You need cash flow and cannot afford to wait around for your big profit. I have also flipped houses. This is a prime example of exactly what happens when one thing goes awry in your plan. You need to be more prepared to weather a storm in the future, but for right now you need to unload that house. Best of luck to you. :-)
This s/b on the classified board, she's trying to sell it.
I have a book to sell if you are interested

I bought it a year ago thinking I was going to take the exam but then realized that I do not meet the requirements - that I should take the RMT exam.  Therefore, it is brand new and has never been used.  If you are interested, let me know.   

It is so rare that people sell their used

IT software, and when I've seen it up for sale, the person selling usually wants $150 or even more for it.

I purchased mine new from Textware Solutions.  It just wasn't worth it to me to wait for someone to put one up for sale and you have to count on them to get the license transfer done, I think.  With the extra production I'm able to do with it, I figure the software paid for itself in a month.
