Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
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!
