I have signed up on those websites to create business.  I too have no experience from graduating from school in Dec 08 and I started my business in May 09, however last year I had to put a hold in it due to my husband being in a motorcycle accident. I started again Aug 2010 now I am getting all my marketing list and materials to start marketing at the beginning of the month.  I am also taking refresher courses to stay current.  It is basically a big step in Faith for the doctors to trust us but if you believe it will happen then it will.

Also in your packet you can put your credentials and associations.

A letter of reference from a professional about you is also helpful.  Since you don't have any clients to use as references, you can give them a letter of reference about your self.

My previous manager was mines. I was employed with the company for 10 years and since its such a prestigious hospital it was beneficial to those who requested it.  I am quite surprised at how many DON'T ask for references!

OH I know.. I've found that too. I also find it pretty amazing they ask for copy of my compliance plan before or even instead of asking for references!!
