The Best Tips For Starting A Side Gig With Melvin Varghese PhD

Before we jump into this week’s episode I have a few things I want to share with you:

1. I’m having a SALE! My Podcourses are $5 off through June 5 and if you didn’t know I'm a NBCC approved provider and each Podcourse is 1 contact hour. To get the discount use the code md5off at checkout. You’ll see a place to apply the code. And you can still get your first course for free when you sign up for my newsletter. So head to my site to check them all out!

2. My friend Sarah Leitschuh is doing a really neat thing. She creates virtual work sessions for therapists. The sessions are coworking sessions where you have 2 hours to work on the task of your choosing with structured support and accountability. The sessions happen on zoom and they are a lot of fun plus you’ll get stuff done and connect with some amazing people.
