The Business Side of a Successful Career Practice.
People launch a private career practice for many reasons. Often the motivation is to seek a working life with more control over--and flexibility relating to--time, freedom, location, work style, client base, family life, etc. Career practitioners who launch a private practice have often worked in the academic, government, military or non-profit sector. Whatever the reason, launching and managing a successful career practice offers a new set of challenges and rewards. The biggest change in becoming self-employed career practitioner is that in addition to providing career related expertise, they are know running a business with all of the responsibilities that come with business ownership. This paper overviews particular challenges and considerations that career practitioners should take into account in order to run a successful private career practice. (GCP)
