Low start up costs – Your biggest investment may be in your education and even that's reasonable for the return you can make on your investment. Other than that you won't require much money and your overhead and supplies will be minimal.
Set your own hours – Work evenings, mornings, or during the day. As long as you meet your turn-around-times, it's up to you when you work.
Low Advertisement Costs – A medical transcription business will grow through word-of-mouth marketing and is also easily marketed with simple flyers and business cards.
Great Earning Potential – A successful medical transcription service can earn anywhere from $20,000 per year (for a part time one person service) to over $200,000 per year for a full medical transcription service. How much you'll earn will be dependent on a number of factors, but there is potential for a decent income.
Exciting Career – You'll learn medical terms and get a better understanding of how the human body works. You'll regularly transcribe a variety of reports and learn about diseases, cures, and medical findings. An added benefit for many MTs is that when they go visit their family doctor they feel more able to communicate and understand what all those medical terms mean… this gives you a great sense of empowerment when it comes to your own health.
Prestigious Career – You'll make great contacts and often become friends with many physicians. This usually comes with many extra perks such as great holiday bonuses. You'll learn a valuable career skill for life and a lucrative profession you can feel proud of.
