Hey, I’m a big fan of home study – books, CDs, and courses – and learning in “bits”. But NOTHING compares to getting away from your office or home, spending a few days with teachers and other “students”, and completely focusing on learning new strategies to improve your business.
So let’s talk pre-licensing education. Schools are attempting to diversify their offerings. Not too long ago a well known AHDI-approved school began to offer training in billing and coding, and then opened a program to train scribes. Many schools that previously only taught medical transcription now have additional offerings. That would seem to point to those businesses feeling that medical transcription training alone will not sustain their business model in the future. One school administrator that I spoke with recently told me they see less interest and enrollment in their transcription programs. Is that because interest is dwindling, or could it be those potential students are reading those same boards and forums where they are told this is not a good profession?
CTEC approved provider Tyler: The first chapter of your book, “Rich by Choice” is titled “Rich or Poor, It’s Your Choice.” I am curious if you would agree that many people have a negative attitude toward money and feel they cannot improve their economic situations. The idea that they choose their own financial situation may seem overwhelming to them. What would you say to such people?
A lawsuit is filed against anyone with a recorded interest. How do you find this out? You have a title search done and it will reveal who has a recorded interest or lien. I know of an example here in SW Florida where an attorney and real estate broker paid a bank $ 153,000 cash for a house in a foreclosure sale and the bank did NOT OWN THE HOUSE. Knowing who has a recorded interest is the real purpose of a quiet title action. Once you have served notice on the party/s that have a recorded interest, here is where the ice gets thick.
CTEC courses Okay, now you are comfortable because your brother-in-law found you a good attorney that gets it. Here is the scenario that has occurred around the country. The well intentioned attorney represents you in court but what is he really doing? He is trying to stretch out the foreclosure process. Paying an attorney on a monthly basis instead of the bank creates cheap rent for you. But, you MUST continue to finance the efforts of your attorney. At the end of the day when the lights are turned out, the attorney comes to you and says “we won”. You won what? You won a dismissal without prejudice. This means the opposing counsel simply says to the judge, “see you next month, because we will be back”.
California is renowned for being about as business unfriendly as any state. If you aren’t getting taxed over here, you are getting hit with some odd fee over there. The weather makes up for it, but sometimes you really have to wonder about whether it is all worth it. This is particularly true for small businesses who form limited liability companies only to get hit upside the head with a host of surprises.
CTEC classes I remember walking into that first seminar and within five minutes realized I had hundreds of people to talk with who “GOT” what I was doing! We could exchange ideas, share resources, coach each other, and even cross promote. It was a whole new world and I could never go back.
And perhaps most shocking of all, he preached that Samaritans and Gentiles of all sorts, even Romans, were worthy of respect. Just as were such “scum” as tax collectors and prostitutes.
