I am currently living on $167 a week unemployment. I work my ass off for jobs that keep me at the bottom because I bust my ass at even the smallest tasks (Working hard and smart), I worked myself out of a job, now making HALF of what I was making, and really...I am, tired of someone getting rich off of my hard work.
What are my chances of starting a successful business? I live in a rural area, I am very good with computers (the only thing I don't know how to do is code) and have been fixing them for people since I was a teenager, I know how to weld. I have a perfect driving record (no accidents or tickets in the 12 years I've had a licence...since I was 16). I also have a $1200 investment portfolio. The problem is...I don't have the certs to show employers and possible customers I know what I am doing.
Am I screwed, or do I have a shot at least till I have enough money to move into a better area? Or should I just suck it up and be the mindless employee I was supposed to be?
