Well, so long to my company of 8 years. I was a car salesman and with the downturn in auto sales, ended up the victim of downsizing. I was pretty frustrated at first, but I think this could be the opportunity I needed. Now I can collect unemployment to stay home and work on everything I have intended to do, but never seemed to have time for. I want to thank everyone that is a member here for the help they have given me. I had my best month in July with an income of about $1,200 (after expenses). Now I need to at least triple that to cover bills, but I think with all the information here that should be possible. Wish me luck everyone.
