    Hi Shelmith, I very inspired by you and have been following you since I saw your course on Udemy. I have been a transcriptionist for many years but the main issue I’ve always had is landing one on one clients without using any bidding platform.
    I have been conned as I think we all have by local companies who you work for them they claim poor quality and they’ve already been paid for your work.

    • Shelmith

      Hello, as far as I know you can only land a direct client from the bidding sites or cold pitching. Keep on trying, you will get one soon.
