I just enrolled in scoping school

Today I sent my enrollment form and paypal payment to Montana for Internet Scoping School, based in Montana. Soon I will be getting my learning materials for my first course, "Quick & Easy Punctuation". I'm excited and a little nervous. This will be what I hope to be a long and eventful road to CR/Captioning.

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

My Tunes

I've never blogged before, and I don't even know if this is a blogging topic. I recently added some very hot tunes to my page. As more time presents itself, more music will appear. It's all going to be of the "Hair Metal" genre. As I am a child of the '80s. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. ROCK N' ROLL!!

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.
