Meet Margery Hinman, our Founder
A mother of 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren, Margery went from office secretary to an at-home entrepreneur with her first business in 1994, a mail order business supplying leads to marketers. That first business was later sold so she could start on her dream business –her own transcription service.
In 1999, Margery started Tidewater Medical Transcription Services, Inc., in Virginia, which did medical, legal, and general transcription for all types of businesses in eastern Virginia. With the expansion of the internet, she grew her business from just local clients to include clients on a state and national level and expanded with the types of transcription that were offered. The business eventually became the largest medical transcription businesses in Virginia.
During the growth period, it became increasingly difficult to find experienced, high-quality transcriptionists, so she wrote and perfected a training program which was used as orientation for all the new transcriptionists being hired.
Then, in 2006, she sold the transcription service to a large national service for 6 figures, which allowed her to concentrate on making the training program into formalized online transcription training. This later expanded to include legal transcription, medical coding and billing, and medical office assistant training. Later, the training program was expanded to include Canadian students in her online program, Medical Transcription School of Canada.
Since then, she has earned her bachelor’s and her Ph.D. in Metaphysics, one of her many long-time interests. She is also certified in 11 different marketing subjects to help others to start their own business and has written her own marketing courses with her membership program, Million Dollar Marketer.
Today, Margery owns a number of online self-training programs and still does consulting work for marketers as well as transcription owners and other small businesses. She and her husband have been married for 40 years and enjoy living in the home they built in Williamsburg, Virginia.
