It has been quite a while since I have written a blog. Blogs are interesting to me, as you can write about anything, and since my website is quiet, likely not many will read it. So I am in the spirit of spring, and rebirthing many things in my life (like this blog). I want to share some blessings in a time of uncertainty with our communities.
I made a decision to move to an on-line platform with my small private practice; ironically COVID 19 helped that plan move quickly. I am blessed because I had made the decision to move on-line and was not forced to make the change like many other therapists. I truly have enjoyed learning the new tools, re-launching my brand and feeling more comfortable about who I am. The best part is connecting to new virtual communities, meeting professionals who are learning like me, and finding fantastic coaches. I appreciate the leaders who give so much of themselves to help us, help others. To be new at something is hard but I am fortunate because it is being done in "my free time." I continue to work as a social work leader in a local medical system - which I love. My private practice, is all mine which is lovely. I do not have to get approval from anyone - I am the business - and I have heard that I am a pretty good boss. So far I have no complaints, except that I would like a few more clients but my "boss" tells me they will find me, so I have no worries.
The best thing about creating a business is that I get to make mistakes and learn from them. That may sound like a nightmare for some people, but I truly believe we learn the best lessons when we make mistakes. You should have seen how many different versions my website has gone through. I have taken so many selfies - a LOT of video do overs and now I am learning about the next level of marketing. I am creating videos, learning about making "pretty posts", posting them on my business Facebook page and then it got hacked! Luckily, I had many people share this with me quickly and I reset
"all the things," and all is well. This business is homemade - so it is not polished but it is a true version of me. Please check in from time to time to see what happens next.
