Starting my counseling career on Tuesday and I’m scared to fail. What if I say something stupid and hurt my clients and make it worse? This is a second career for me so is hard to be older and a novice. I know it’s not about me and that I will truly care so I keep reminding myself of that. Any thoughts from others new to the field or advice from more experienced practitioners?

Curious what’s a fair salary in MA?

I execute tasks from two investment advisors and two financial planners - they make the decisions of what should happen & I make it happen.
