No luck getting a job, source of experience an issue?

Hey everyone, :D

Im 27, have my A+ and will be taking my Security+ by 10/12/13. I have over 9 years of IT experience dealing with laptop/ desktop repairs as well as setting up networks for small businesses.

My question is, after applying to MANY jobs ( in multiple states ) I'm wondering if the fact that the majority of my experience coming from running my own IT business is hindering my ability to land a job?

My goal is to become a security administrator but since I lack the knowledge to be in such a position until I finish up my certs I am applying for IT support and help desk positions since that is where I would be most useful for the time being.


I'll have my resume critiqued as well on here.
