I can't believe it's been more than a year that I joined.  Time has flown by faster than a blink of an eye. 

I lost my job December 16, 2014.  I have interviewed, and interviewed, and interviewed.  I have sent countless resumes, met managers and have spoken to them about obtaining work. And, well, even the "surest" thing didn't pan out.  I am attempting to open my private practice, and a baking business.  However, without income, as an investor fall out of the face of the earth, it's been difficult.  I was set to start selling at farmer's market, but without the money I needed for materials and permits, I can't.  I can't, or at least I am not sure, qualify for a business loan.  I don't want that route.  especially for something as small as the farmer's market.  I am starting to see a client tomorrow, finally, but it's only one.  I don't know when my car will be repossessed.  I see the frustration building, and that has kept my creativity down.  Much like when I was trapped in the 9-5 paycheck.  Any ideas?  Fear and doubt have taken a seat next to me, and are holding on like a jealous girlfriend.

Hi, Sam.  I am also in private practice as a mental health counselor, and I have found that working in the field requires a good deal of business savvy that many clinicians lack.  I have an E-course I will be launching soon called Open Your Private Practice in 90 Days.  

I wonder if meeting with someone for an interview coaching session might be ideal for you.  If you have had a number of interviews, there must be some disconnect.  On the podcast I know Dan mentioned asking close friends for their thoughts on the reasons you may not be securing job offers, but if I were you I would consider an objective outsider for this task.  Someone who is objective can give you the honest feedback you may need to help with obtaining an offer. 

Best of luck!
