Brain on vacation – Back to normal

Finally tax day has come and gone, and now my brain can vacate for a few days. It’s been a busy few weeks but was well worth it. Now to relax into a more steady work schedule.


I can never say this enough having your accounts in order whether they’re done by you or a bookkeeper/accountant, it’s so much easier when it comes to taxes and annual accounts. Doing your accounts ever month, every quarter or even six months will be beneficial to you the business owner/independent contractor in that it helps you keep track of what your income and expenses are.   It also lessens the stress when it comes to doing your annual accounts and your profit and loss statements and other reports that you need at the end of your financial year.

So if you haven’t done your first quarter accounting, now would be a good time to get it done or hire a bookkeeper to do it for you.

Enjoy the week.

4 Funny But Serious Skills To Embrace As A Transcriber •

Hi Everyone,

Just read this and thought it very fitting to those assistants who are transcribers by trade. I myself am a Transcriber and found this to be very imformative. So many businesses are going for the cheaper option when it comes to this type of service and in the long run they end up paying double for the same project.

Recently I worked with a client who had files done by someone else and they were so bad she passed them on to me for editing. As soon as I opened the file it was immediately obvious that the transcriber was not a natural English speaker. Simple phases, words or even sentence structure were a mess, and large chunks of the content were omitted.

So take your skill seriously and offer the best service you can and enjoy what you do.
