The very first question I always get from therapists when I talk about adding on a second income stream is “how much time would that really take?” Because to be honest, time is our most precious resource.

There’s a little voice inside of you wanting more; more time off, more stability, and even more fun. All signs point to the idea that your next step might be separate from therapy.

Therapists tend to be funny about money. The most comfortable way for us to earn a wage then is to directly exchange our skillset for dollars. BUT, we end up undervaluing ourselves because we forget about all the other things we do like documentation, writing reports, evaluations, and testifying in court. So one of the things that draws us to o ...…

Is having an audience a big deal? I have a different take on this than a lot of people. Most people either say you don't have to build an audience, all you need is ads or yes you need a big audience.
