How to advance in your career (for counselors)

Updated: Aug 25, 2022

A few weeks back I posted about why you don't need another degree to achieve career success. It wasn't written for counselors and therapists. I'm not a career coach. It was just career advice from one random guy, albeit a professional, on the internet.

That post got this comment:

The thing about this comment is I know Valerie. When I was in my doc program I used to babysit her kids for extra cash. Her comment is personal.

Now, like I said before, I'm not a career coach. But I do own my own business and my career path has been significantly derailed from what I expected. I've also made it a rule to study successful people.

In all of this I've made a lot of mistakes. Mistakes I wish for others to avoid.

All of this has been swirling around and I began to think: what other advice would I give the next generation?

What did I come up with? Remember you're building a spiderweb.
