This course will also provide guidance on how to complete the job search, resume and interview process to develop services and products in order to generate multi-stream income.

"Love it!!!I have already registered for specific certification courses to improve my marketability in parallel fields and am going to update my resume. This course was very helpful and encouraging! Thank you!!! So needed! The only suggestion would be less writing on the flipboard! It was hard to see what was being written at times."

"A good presentation. It was filled with a lot of helpful information which helped to bring awareness of the many skills I have and am not aware of/take for granted. This course was very unique as it didn't focus on the clinical/therapeutic aspects of Speech Language Pathology. By attending this course, I was able to step back and look at what I do as a medical SLP from a different viewpoint, in moving forward."

- Live Streaming or Studio Audience, FL / Mar 2021

"I gained insight into how to develop a business plan as well as related information, such as having a non-disclosure agreement. I appreciated getting the information about coaching programs. "

- Live Streaming or Studio Audience, FL / Mar 2021

"Excellent information! I am so glad I was a part of this seminar! Thank you, Dr Johnson and CIAO!"

- Live Streaming or Studio Audience, FL / Mar 2021

"This course was educational however, I think it was incorrectly named. I believed I was getting information related to fully transitioning out of speech pathology and into unrelated career fields. I feel the information provided was how to use current speech path skills to progress as a speech pathologist or move into a related segment of speech pathology. There is nothing wrong with that, the course title was just mildly misleading. I still learned a great deal of information I hope to apply. "
