The Dawn of a New Day

Well, indeed. Soon it was the dawn of a new day. The reporter did call on the third day and we chatted on the phone for about a half hour. I shared my experience, and the reporter shared his experience. We then decided that we were going to work together. We have since done many, many jobs together and it has developed into a very productive relationship for both of us.

I have since acquired other clients as well. I am not saying that everything is lucrative, but I am saying that it is… Continue

A new beginning!

Well, indeed it wasn't the end of the road. It was the beginning of something totally different. I applied for unemployment, because we needed to have money coming into the house. When i first applied I didn't know if I could run a business and collect at the same time. Well I found out. New York State Department of Labor has a program called SEAP which stands for Self Employment Assistance Program. They allow you to start a business and continue collecting benefits at the same time. They ask… Continue

But was it?

But was it the end of the road, really? When I was growing up the people that were bigger than me would tell me, "God has a plan for you." I often wondered what they meant. And as I struggled through life I asked myself many times is this what God had intended for me? I could never answer the question.

Well, it wasn't the end of the road after all. You see, I had a dream of working from home ever since we moved to Long Island. Not that waking up 2 hours before work and then travelling…

Full time Scoping

I don't know if anyone else does this full time, but I do. I thought it was a curse when my former boss sat me down around 8 months ago and said, "We're very sorry, but we have to let you go." My heart sank. I poured my heart and soul into that business for 16 years. Now what was I going to do. I had a wife at home, two small children, a hefty mortgage payment for a house in the suburbs on Long Island. It was the end of the road.

I saw your posting on CSRNation and I am looking for a proofreader who does corrections on the actual file, not an errata sheet. I'm on Case Catalyst and if you're interested, let me know. My e-mail is Thanks.

Thank you so much for your prompt response! Unfortunately, I won't be utilizing my 2001 any longer since I know of no way to find another DOS-based computer to load it on. Thanks again! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Anyone have any ideas on how I can get paid from a reporter that owes me money? A little background. I started working for this reporter back in November or December. She is on an older version of Case CATalyst, which means that when she sends me work and I do the corrections she cannot open the file unless I send her an ASCII. We did that for the first couple of jobs and then she just said send the CC file and she will forward that on to the company. She has paid me for three or four invoices. Now she has outstanding almost $500 which she claimed that she sent a check over three weeks ago. She won't return my calls, or my e-mails. What can I do?
