I spoke with a friend this afternoon and learned that her position will be eliminated in February, 2011. This is a triple hit for her: The job market is tough, she is a divorcee, and has younger children at home. Sue’s story reinforced my determination to make Homepreneurs valuable and helpful to as many as possible.
Today’s work-at-home suggestions are dedicated to Sue, may she discover a career, job or calling that fits her life and needs.
