To find a business opportunity or idea, do an online search for “small business opportunities” or “franchises, watch Shark Tank, check out Entrepreneur, Fast Company or Inc Magazines.
I am currently without a job. I was fired June 25 from a job I thrived at.
The best thing to do after getting fired is to take a fresh look at who you are and where you’re are going. Take a look at your unique skills and abilities, personality traits and values, dreams and passions.
