So sad that it has come to this for you. In addition to being well-educated, you appear to be multi-talented; bright, witty and street-smart. I suppose it shows that any of us could find ourselves in your situation.<br />

Using those bikini shots? Good move!
I believe she's being serious, Chippy..
I'm sure she is, but I have no serious concepts for her that she isn't smart enough not to have thought of for herself--I got faith in the Sweeper. ;)
BTW, after reading your business bio story, while you're waiting to find your next endeavor you might try writing some articles on the various things you've done and try to market them--you've done so much you should have viable tips for others to learn from.
NO! You need another way to represent yourself in a very well-respected manner. Present your well written resume to your local head hunter.They really do work wonders. Or, how about presenting yourself and introducing yourself and just and asking for a word from the Manager? You'll be very surprised at what a very much well-respect appearance can make to any employer, even if they aren't looking for help. (There's always that "File") ..Go out there and give it your BEST! Think positive, sweetie!
And I'm sure you're a genious..
