  •  Thanks for the support, I did consider (0+ / 0-)

    opening a business 2 yrs ago.  

    There were some issues, money, money, money then location, location, location. I would have loved to open a restaurant, reality is 90% of all new businesses fail within the first 5 yrs. Restaurants are brutal.

    My only other marketable skills are managing retail businesses...thought about going back to school, retrain in some other industry...then the same first issue of money, money, money.  

    I was told by Social Services (after unemployment ran out) that if I had no experience or was a recently released convict, they could get me a job within a week...go figure...

    But thanks for the suggestions...I was pondering the idea again, just before I saw this Diary....of doing something to bring income into my home...

    I've seriously got to think outside of the box...in this case pretend that there never was a box...
