was privileged to spend yesterday with a group of New Zealand’s most successful female entrepreneurs. Several told the stories of their journeys. Although each woman and each product or service they offered was different, there were some recurring themes, and deeply profound and moving elements to each story. I am kicking myself for not recording these stories.
Use transcription to create momentum. The value of momentum, here’s an example that highlights how businesses develop and maintain momentum. Lack of momentum in writing can be the greatest obstacle when attempting to overcome writers block. Check out these stories and see if you can relate.
A local café ran a loyalty program. For every coffee you paid for, you got one stamp on your card. If you bought eight coffees, you got one free.
You often hear writers and authors talk about experiencing writers block, but you hardly ever hear of a person who gets talker’s block. No one wakes up in the morning, discovers he has nothing to say and sits quietly, for days or even weeks, waiting for the inspiration to arrive.
Why then, is writer’s block so ‘talked’ about? One reason we almost never experience talker’s block is that we’re in the habit of talking without a lot of concern for whether or not our freely spoken words will come back to us. Talk is cheap. Talk is temporary. We often start by talking poorly and eventually, perhaps only sometimes, we talk smart.
A transcription machine is a device which records or processes speech for translating that speech as text. In the old days of transcription this was done on a rather chunky Dictaphone transcription machines. Typists would play back recordings through headsets and type the content as they listened, usually stopping and starting as required using foot petal controls.
