Launched the newest part of my business

As some of y'all who know me from other writing and social networking sites may know, I'm a professional counselor. A few months ago, I had the idea of expanding my business to include life coaching.

I put a lot of thought into this, as life coaches tend to get a bad rap for, essentially, practicing counseling without the appropriate training or oversight. Since I am trained, I thought it would be a nice, additional service for both clients that don't need traditional therapy and be able to offer services online.

This afternoon, I finally registered the domain, paid for a year of hosting, and started to set up the site. I've been working on blog posts for the site for a while now, so by the end of the week, I'll be ready for a full launch.

I also decided to include message boards so that both clients and others can have a place to discuss emotional wellness in a safe, positive environment.

I'm really excited about this; wish me luck.

Thank you so much! It's been a while since I've made a website (at least a professional one) so that's added an extra dimension of difficulty... but it's still fun emoticon :smile:

Thank you! Is really is a big step for me. I'll admit, I'm a little worried whether it will attract any clients, but I'm passionate about the idea.

Thanks! I decided I wanted to add the message board because I always like sites better when I have a chance to communicate with other users. I think you can really enhance the site's credibility, especially if they may be buying professional services from it.
