Everytime I get on here it tells me to write a post, I have never had anything that I thought that anyone else would find worthwhile, however I find this worthwhile so maybe someone else will. I keep hearing that it is a workers market today because the job market is almost at full employment, I do not find that to be the case, now it has been 31 years since I was in the market, but I have never been out of work for more than 2 weeks in my entire... see more

I also wrote about cannabis and just applied to Marijuana Business Daily.

At the same time, I'm taking a copywriting course to try to... see more

Listing that experience could help or hinder you.
