Sometimes you may find that elements of your role are more challenging than others, and sometimes there might be times that you feel you aren’t challenged enough. The great thing about the care services and counseling is the scope you have to grow and develop in your career, and the array of options you’ll have with the right skills and qualifications. There are a plethora of areas and levels you can enter your future in helping others, depending on your education and experience. You might just feel that it’s the right time to push forward in your career, or perhaps try another area that you’ve long been tempted by.

It’s always a great time to work out what action you’ll need to take to get yourself where you want to be this time next year. Whether it’s training and education, funding and finance, or your time management that you’ll need to assess; start writing a month by month plan that you feel you can achieve. Breaking up your main aim into smaller, manageable goals will ensure that you don’t feel too overwhelmed or put off by what’s entailed. You’ll also feel a great sense of achievement after completing each part of your placement, course, and challenges, which will give you a boost to tackle the next part of the process. The following are some ideas for those looking for their next move regarding a career in counseling, and some advice on how to achieve job satisfaction and motivation for the future ahead.

 

 

Get Online

As well as a fascination with the human mind, those who study and train in counseling often head into a career in caring for those who need help regarding their mental health, wellbeing, and rehabilitation. Therefore, if you have an education and qualifications in psychology; you could look into psychology in a variety of settings, like schools, prisons, hospitals, and recovery clinics. It’s time to get online and check out sites like https://tzkseminars.com/

So that you can learn more about what seminars and courses are available to you. The internet should always be your first port of call regarding further training, advice, and education, as it’s saturation with all three.

Speak To A Senior

Try to find someone in a senior position in your place of work, or look for mentorship from someone who works in an area of your field. Help and advice from those who have already trained and worked their way up the ladder will provide you with an honest insight into your future career, and you can begin to plan how to reach your goals. You can ask where and how the best places to study are, and how you can fit things around your current role to give it a boost in the right direction. Often, places of employment will be more than happy to invest in their staff, so don’t be fearful to approach those who have been there and done it all before.

 

What Do You Need For An Emergency?

We live in Southeast Virginia. The state with weather that can change from hour to hour. For example, last week we had a HUGE snowstorm that dumped 12 inches of snow on the ground and essentially shut us (and the schools) down for 6 days! Then last week we had two days in the upper 60’s and today it is 20 degrees!!! Completely CRAZY! Oh and if that isn’t bad enough we also live in a hurricane prone area. So when hurricanes come up the east coast we have to pay attention, and since our house is across the street from water we have to pay particular attention to which direction the wind is coming from and where the waves are going.

So being prepared in the event of an emergency is very important to us, as an emergency can happen at any time. And even though we have a generator so we can have some electricity,  what if we get snowed in and cant get to the grocery store, or flooded and can’t get out of the neighborhood? Having emergency supplies on hand is very important!

I mean even something as basic as water may not be available. There have been times we have had to boil our water because the water is contaminated after a bug storm. Water is a basic human need, and while yes, you ca buy it, what if yor water supply is gone before the water is safe? And I am not talking about apocalyptic events…..just think back to a hurricane that decimated many Caribbean islands this past summer?

It can happen!

My Patriot Supply can help with these concerns. They provide water filtration systems, HepA air filters, emergency food, and even organic seeds s you can grow your own food if needed. Preparing for an emergency is important so in the event something happens you and your loved ones will be safe. Here is an interview with My Patriot Supply’s VP of Marketing Keith Bansemer , who is not only an employee but a consumer of the products he markets, as he “often enjoys spending his free time off the grid in a region of Idaho near Upper Priest Lake.”

In fact, My Patriot Supply was instrumental in helping with aid to the state of Florida after Hurricane Irma struck in 2017.  Hurricane Irma was a devastating storm that leveled many islands in the Caribbean and brought flood waters and high wind damage to many parts of Florida, but in particular the Florida Keys and Miami.

I visited Miami in November, and there were many houses I saw with tarps on the roofs, and hurricane damage that had yet to be repaired, so being able to provide essentials like food and water was an important part of keeping families safe. Thank goodness companies like My Patriot Supply, among others were there to serve and aid families and businesses in their time of need!

I hope that you never have to deal with an emergency situation or the possibility of having unsafe water or no food but the reality is that many of us live in hurricane, tornado or flood areas and can incur damage and indeed, life threatening situations to our homes and families. It is for these instances that preparing for an emergency is so important!!

What Do You Love Doing? Turn it into a Business.

Have you ever thought about starting your own business? Want to be an Entrepreneur? These days it is so easy to start your own business, and there are dozens of types of businesses you can have. Starting your own business is no longer about coming up with a business plan, and pitching it to a bank or other lender to get hundreds of thousands of dollars to start a brick and mortar business. While that is an option for sure, so is working online, or having a network marketing business, or a mail order business. Even blogging or vlogging can be a business.

I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and in fact could be described as a “serial entrepreneur”.  I have been a distributor in 4 different Network Marketing companies, and honestly, that seems to be the way so many businesses are going these days. It is a great business model. No storefront to own, no huge investment, and shoppers all over the world. In fact, there are even electric and gas companies that are using the Multi Level Marketing style of business to gain customers.

If that isn’t your cup of tea, you can start a business based on your passion. If you love to bake you can bake and sell your baked goods online, or at farmers markets in your area, or even at some grocery stores. If you love to make jewelry, make your jewelry and sell at a farmers market, on an online based platform such as Etsy. You could also partner with local boutiques in your area. Additionally there may even be vendor opportunities in your local area, especially at the holidays.

When I venture to my local farmers market I see people who make jellies and jams, baked goods, spice mixes, meat rubs, salsa, clothing, crafters, etc. If you have an idea and a passion, you can probably make money doing what you love. What may start as a side gig can become your main source of income. The sky is the limit.

If you love to write you can blog, or write short stories or even books. Monetizing a blog is not difficult, and there are many websites with information on how to do that successfully and make a great living blogging. If you prefer film or video you can vlog or create content on YouTube.

I have found that owning my own business has not only been a way for me to create an extra stream of income, but has given me so many opportunities for personal growth. I have read so many books, and listened to business leaders speak. I have been able to learn from amazing business leaders such as Linda Ellerbe, John O’leary, Robert Kiyosake, and Grace Lever, among others. Learning from them, and reading self discovery books has helped me to become a better person, and I really like the person I have become.

I guess what I am trying to say is What Do You Love Doing? Turn it into a Business. Go for it! What do you have to lose? And you could have a LOT to gain!
