Hello all, I was just wondering what the downsides are, if any, if you were to have a work-from-home career as a Transcriptionist? I know the positive sides of this type of career is that you get to work from home on your own schedule. But is there any negative side to it? Like for me, I think a downside would be the pressure of having to meet deadlines and performance expectations everyday and the fact that you need to constantly motivate yourself to do the work. Is there anything else negative that I might have missed? Thanks in advance for your answers.

I can see your point about constant motivation. At times it could be challenging if you are working from home. But the pros of working from home outweigh the cons if you ask me. One needs to be disciplined as WFH has many distractions, especially with little children. The fact that a transcriptionist is always in a driver seat tells a lot :) If you listen to our podcast, you may find this helpful as I ask Beth Worthy, President of GMRTranscription, questions along these lines. https://soundcloud.com/tci-podcast/beth-worthy-president-gmr-transcription-on-what-companies-look-for-in-transcriptionists-and-more.
