Video and Audio editing and creation DON’T need to be a HEADACHE…

Back when I still had two real legs I did a great deal of audio transcription. Sometimes the audio would come in an MP3 file or a video and the client would want a Word file of the content. I found a terrific product called AVS4YOU. It has many great features that helped make processing audio and video so much faster and cleaner.

When I traveled the country on my motorcycle during the original B.R.O.A.D. (TM) journey I gave up transcription because honestly there isn’t much money in it and it was more equipment to tote around.

After I was hit and lost part of my leg, I began a video series of what life was like for me missing part of my leg. These videos were about showering, managing my living space to suit my needs, traveling with a wheelchair, trying to cook, and more. It was then that I needed to find a program that would help me put together quality videos in a user friendly manner. Again, I turned to AVS4YOU. The video series called, “Doing It With The B.R.O.A.D.” (TM) was a huge success and folks really appreciated the private understanding of what my life had become. I do not claim to be a guru at making videos, but thanks to AVS4YOU, they turned out pretty decent.

Now, a year has passed and a new video series is in the making. I am getting better and faster at managing AVS4YOU and creating the videos that will become “The Amp’d Rider Project”. This project, similar to the other project, is about sharing what life is like as an amputee but I’m taking it a step further and encompassing the love and passion I have for motorcycle riding. I am interviewing amp’d riders, professionals that modify motorcycles for amputees, and professionals that make it their careers to assist amputees medically and also with prosthetics.

And so I share with you these tidbits, but for this article I really want to share with you AVS4YOU because it is a wonderful cost effective tool for anybody that wishes to edit and create terrific videos and audio for any project you may have in mind.

Now, if you have an interest in the video series called, “Doing It With The B.R.O.A.D.” (TM), you can certainly find them on YouTube.

By the beginning of February 2015, “The Amp’d Rider Project” will begin on YouTube as well. In the meantime, you can see some of the one legged adventures…

A Blessed Week and Another Week of Self Employment Underway

I sure hope that everybody had a wonderful weekend and blessed Easter. I sure did. Saturday and Sunday were both spent doing a lot of riding with people that mean a great deal to me. Saturday we rode about 250 miles (scenic route of course) to go see the Red Covered Bridge in Princeton, IL. It’s one of five remaining covered bridges in Illinois.

I filmed over four hours of riding on my GoPro camera mounted to my windshield. I love my camera that my riding friends gave me for my birthday last year. It’s totally awesome although I’m still learning how to use it. 🙂   I spent a little over five hours Saturday evening (until 1:00 AM) creating the following video our of the footage and photos I had taken from the day.

It’s Monday evening and another productive week is taking shape. I had a phone interview for a VA position with a very nice lady from New York. She found me on Guru.com and said she was impressed with my skills and recommendations. YAY!!

I did another ghostwriting session for a blogger. ARGH – how I wish I could tell you more because it’s very fascinating stuff.

I’m bidding on more jobs and submitted a test scenario for a husband/wife team that needs a VA. Hopefully I’ll hear more about that soon. I have an accounting project in the AM as well as a transcription project setup for tomorrow PM.

I’m not getting rich yet, but my name is getting out there and that’s really what will make this come to life for me.

I have been corresponding with a lovely lady that has some great inspirational women that she features on her blog. She goes by LadyRomp and her blog is quite refreshing. I recommend it for a light and uplifting read.

Other than that, my Easter with my son, grand daughter and their family was pleasant. My son and I rode our motorcycles for a while Easter afternoon which is always a blessing and a treat for me. Now that he’s grown with a family of his own, I don’t see him much so the time I get I cherish immensely.
