Issue 9-26-03


I hope this issue finds you well!  The weeks go by so
quickly don’t they?  I’ve had a bit of a clumsy week
for some reason.  I know I shouldn’t be allowed
near super glue, I’ve never been very good with it.
I remember when I was a child, my mother stuck her
finger and thumb together and tried to separate them
with a knife.  Perhaps this super glue trait has been
passed on.  I started taking a graphics course at the
local college.  I enjoy web design as a hobby and
wanted to learn more about graphics. 

Anyway, somehow I stuck my mid-term project to the
desk with super glue, and when I pulled it off it
left a big piece of purple construction paper stuck
to the desk.  Not just stuck to the desk, but somehow
it had became part of the desk.  I was really scared what the instructor would say.  The girl at the desk next to me just laughed and laughed.  I laughed too, because I do when I’m nervous…. 

Anyway, I slipped out of class and ran to Staples
to find some glue dissolving potion, but they didn’t have any.  Then I drove to Home Depot where they sold me some “magic stuff”… Well anyway, to cut a long story short, I applied the “magic stuff” which stunk to high heaven, and the fumes got the attention of the instructor…who came by to see “what was going on”.  I had by this time scraped some of the paper off the desk, but not all of it.  Fortunately he just smiled and
said “don’t worry about it”.  Thank goodness! 

So, if you’re anything like me, stay away from glue,
especially super glue.


I read the article below and just had to
share it with you today.

Simple Secret That Will Get You Highly
Motivated To Succeed!

By Bryan Kumar

Years ago, when I was teaching martial arts and
self defense classes, I noticed a recurring pattern.
I'd get a lot of adult students who would do really
well in class but were always concerned about
freezing up or just being passive when it came
time to really defend themselves during 'real' danger.

I would share one little secret with them that would
completely transform their mindset and got them
totally ready to kick some serious butt if danger
came their way. 
I told them to "Imagine having a loved one, someone you really care about, with you the next
time you're faced with danger - a child, spouse,
sibling, parent, best friend, whomever. NOW.. what
would you do to protect 'that' person if you knew
his/her life was in danger? And the only thing standing
between them and the 7-foot thug was YOU?"

It's amazing. Present that scenario to them, especially
to moms, and it would take a Mack truck to stop them.
What's interesting is that most people will do a LOT
for others than they would ever do for
How can you use this in business?

Even when we start by picking a business we're really
passionate about, some days are just downers when
you just don't feel like doing what needs to be done.
The next time you don't feel like following through
n something you know you absolutely must do, just think for a moment...

"How will my business success affect my loved ones?
How will 'their' lives be better tomorrow, the next
year, and for the rest of their lives?"

Take some time to think on those terms and you
won't be able to help but jump up and get stuff done!

Whenever you feel that you lack motivation, just "do it for THEM!"



It seems in the medical transcription world, people
are not quick to raise their rates.  Everybody is scared that the doctor will find another transcriptionist.

If this applies to you, the best thing to do is to
raise your smaller accounts first, one by one.  If
you have a nice doctor and you have established a
good account relationship, raising your rates should
not be a problem. 

How often should you raise your rates?

Well, I keep an eye on the big companies that have
loads of accounts.  They generally charge more.  I
tend to keep my rates in line with them.  I usually
raise my rate every 2-3 years.  At the moment I charge 13 cents a line.  Most of my friends are charging 12 cents per line.  It depends what the going rate is in your area of course.

When you decide to raise your rates, give a 30 day
notice that this is about to happen. 


Remember when you are looking for accounts
not to target just hospitals and physicians’
offices.  Here are some more ideas:


Correctional Facilities

Physical Therapy Centers

Medical Clinics

Imaging Facilities

Mental Health Facilities

Workers’ Compensation Clinics


Insurance Adjustors


Teaching Universities

Veterinarian Clinics

Legal Offices

Private Investigators


Oral Surgeons

I hope this gives you some new ideas.




1 yellow cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup of oil

3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together cake mix, eggs, and oil until powder
is completely dissolved into dough.  Stir in peanut
butter.  Drop ball of dough into a small bowl of sugar, then place on a greased cookie sheet.  Press fork
horizontally and then vertically across each ball to
flatten.  Bake 10-12 minutes, or until golden.  Remove from pan and cool.


Well, that’s it for this week.  Hope you have a
GREAT weekend and SAFE and HAPPY week!

Until next Friday,

Michele Miller
